About the author (2007)

With a prestigious lineage including familial ties to Pocahontas and Thomas Jefferson, Mrs. Mary Randolph lived the later part of her life in Richmond where she ran a boarding house with her husband. Mrs. Mary became so well known for her cooking that during the Revolutionary War it was rumored that her life was spared by virtue of her cooking ability. Mrs. Mary passed away in 1828 and was the first person to be buried at what would become Arlington National Cemetery.
