In regards to Lee's sister Anne, she supported her son Louis and husband William Marshall of Baltimore (a "black republican") but sent a message saying she doubted the federals "can whip Robert". Nephew Louis Marshall served on General John Pope's staff. To Lee's dismay, "I could forgive Louis fighting against us, but not his joining a miscreant as Pope", Lee admitted to his sister Mary. More than once, Lee spoke of his regret that young Marshall "is in such bad company". Most of these individuals the Marshall, Buford, Early, Lee, etc. probably were unaware of their family relationships or were they? Currently looking into a potential Pickett/Marshall relationship which would link with R. E. Lee.
