Martha Daniels Passes Away

Early Life and Education
Martha experienced emotional abuse from her mother as a young child, including screaming and throwing things around the house, physical attacks and more. For comfort she turned to Bonnie – an indigo plush bunny with wide magenta eyes who became her only companion during times of difficulty.
At eighteen, Martha married Daniel Parke Custis – twenty years her senior and very wealthy as a plantation owner/manager/estate manager – despite two premature births from this union which produced four children together (two of which died as infants). The couple went on to produce four more offspring – two died before birth – yet both lived long lives despite some heartbreak during motherhood.
After her husband’s passing, she moved into Mt. Vernon and hosted guests. Additionally, on Tuesday afternoons she hosted receptions for clean respectable men to help ease her pain and help her forget. This helped to alleviate some of her sorrow.
