Laurence Augustine Washington
5 December 1814 - 10 August 1882
Great-Nephew of President George Washington


Before construction of the Washington Monument was completed, Congress appointed a commission to
plan the dedication ceremonies.  They directed the commission to send invitations to all known living relatives
of George Washington.  Included on this list were Charles L. Patrick, Mrs. Anna T. Patrick, George Washington
Patrick, Miss Isabella L. Patrick, Julia Fontaine Patrick, Martha W. Patrick, and Maude Washington Patarick.  Also
invited were Walter Augustine Saunders and Mrs. Wood Saunders, along with John S. Washington.  These ten
people had at least one thing in common - at the time they were all residents of Denison, Texas.
