I am writing a history wherein Arabella Stuart plays a roll. She was married to congressman turned "robber baron" of the gilded age. He was John Magee. His son was Gen'l George Magee. True rags to riches story. Would love to tie her to VA Stuarts. While servoing in congress John Magee's first wife died. He married Arabell "from Virginia" before he left D.C. to head home to NY and get very, very rich and connected to the Vanderbilts, J.P. Morgam, Frank Gowan, Chauncy DePew...all RR presidents who quietly formed a "trust" before trust were outlawed. Be nice to say she was J.E.B. Stuart's aunt or cousin. She was born in VA somehwre about 1808-14. She could have been younger. She died in Europe, I think. Any info would be appreciated. I am Don Knaus at dmknaus@epix.net Thanks
