Note
"I believe Billy and Frank Lee were the sons of George William and Sally Cary Fairfax. I believe the Fairfaxes decided to hide their three children from public view; that George William's sister Anne Fairfax Washington and her husband Lawrence became accomplices in the deception; that before he died, Lawrence revealed his role in it to his devoted half-brother; and that in a beside vow, George pledged to do what Lawrence commanded him to do. In the event the Fairfaxes' sons ever needed his help, George vowed that he would provide it."--Page 3
