Washington, Martha

Washington, Martha

Washington, Martha, 1731-1802, wife of George Washington, b. New Kent co., Va. The daughter of John Dandridge and Frances Jones Dandridge, she first married (1749) Daniel Parke Custis. She bore him four children, but the first two died in childhood. Custis himself died in July, 1757, leaving Martha one of the wealthiest women in Virginia. Washington first met her in Mar., 1758, lost no time in proposing, and was just as quickly accepted. They were married in Jan., 1759, and Washington took Martha and her family, John Parke Custis (d. 1781) and Martha Parke Custis (d. 1773), to his Mount Vernon estate. They had no children of their own, but John Parke Custis had four, and after John's death Washington adopted the youngest two, Eleanor Parke Custis and George Washington Parke Custis, whose daughter married Robert E. Lee.

In 1963, a law was passed authorizing a new numbering for sign routes. In 1970 the legislative definitions were changed to use the sign route numbers but renamed state routes. Those definitions, with amendments, are still in use today.

In 1964, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) created a new numbering system, the State Route system, out of the existing Primary State Highways (PSH) and Secondary State Highways (SSH) system. The new system, called State Routes or Signed Routes (SR), consolidated and created a more organized and systematic method of numbering the highways within the state. The system also introduced accordance with the new Interstate Highway system, with the creation of Interstate 5 within the state.
