She lived to see her son, George Washington, inaugurated as President in 1789. Washington’s relationship with his mother was forever strained. Although she was by no means poor, she regularly complained to outsiders that she was destitute and neglected by her children, much to George’s embarrassment.” (Submitted on September 12, 2009.)
