About Lucinda Orr

Lucinda Lee, daughter of Thomas Ludwell Lee (one of the Lee brothers of Stratford Hall) and his wife Mary Aylett Lee. Lucinda Lee married John Dalrymple Orr, a Prince William County-born physician educated at the University of Edinburg whose uncle, Colonel William Grayson, served with Lucinda's uncle Richard Henry Lee as the first U.S. Senators from Virginia. The Orrs lived at Alexandria for some years before moving to North Hill, an estate on the Shenandoah River near Snicker's Ferry in Clarke County, Virginia. Their daughter Ellen married General Asa Rogers of Loudoun County.

Lucinda kept a diary as a young girl, for Polly Brent, a young Maryland friend who at the same time was supposed to be keeping a record of her own for Lucinda. Polly Brent's manuscript copy of Lucinda's journal, now missing, was still in her family's papers in 1871 when Emily V. Mason edited and published it to raise funds for Confederate veterans of the Civil War. Mason misdated the journal 1782, when in fact it was written in 1787. The text of portion of Lucinda's journal can be found in the Lee Archives as Washington and Lee University (http://leearchive.wlu.edu/papers/books/by_date_list_1.html). The journal mentions many of her extended family.
