Mildred Lee was born on February 10, 1845 in Alexandria, Virginia, United States. Her parents were Robert Lee and Mary Custis. She died on March 27, 1905 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

From Find a Grave:

Mildred was the youngest child of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and his wife, Mary Anna Custis Lee. She was a great favorite of the family, nicknamed "Precious Life" and, although she was rather plain and tending towards plumpness, she had a vital and captivating spirit. General Lee always used to say that she brought light into any room she entered. Mildred was very close to her father and when he died, she seemed to lose any purpose in her life. She traveled extensively but found little joy in it. She died in New Orleans, Louisiana and was brought back to join her other family members in the crypt at the Lee Chapel and Museum.
