Elizabeth (Eliza) Parke Custis Law
Enslaved dairy maid Kitty was inherited by Eliza Law, along with Kitty’s two youngest daughters, Barbara (age 13) and Levina (age 9). Her six older daughters were dispersed among the other grandchildren. Kitty and her children had already been separated from her husband, Isaac, a carpenter who was emancipated by Washington’s will.
She also inherited this pair of c. 1796 candlesticks.
