Biographical sketch

REBECCA RAMSAY (REESE) was born to George William Ramsay and Harriet Stabler Fawcett in Alexandria, Virginia on April 22, 1870. She married Robert M. Reese, and they lived at 517 Cameron (NE corner with St. Asaph). Rebecca and her mother operated a boarding house in their home until her mother's death in 1922. Rebecca Ramsay (Reese)'s portrait is over the mantle at the Ramsay House, now the Alexandria Visitor's Center. She was very active in the local restoration/preservation movement (Elliot 1975). Her aunts, Eugenia and Henrietta Fawcett died (1937) in the Reese home (517 Cameron [Alexandria Gazette [AG] 10/1/1937, 11/17/1937]). Their household also included Clara A. Moore and Dennis McCarty Ramsay--two cousins (AG 7/6/1922). Rebecca Ramsay Reese died on July 19, 1955. She is buried in Alexandria’s Presbyterian Cemetery. The Ramsay/Reese house was demolished in the 1950s, and is now a parking lot.
