    1[Diary entry: 6 November 1774] (Washington Papers)
    6. Went to Pohick Church. Mr. Triplet & Mr. Peake & Daughter dined here. Probably Humphrey Peake’s younger daughter, Elizabeth, still a minor in 1774. GW commonly referred to a child of a friend as a “son” or “daughter” while still a minor and as a “Mr.” or “Miss” after the age of about 16. Thus Humphrey Peake’s elder daughter, Ann (Nancy), would be a “Miss” by this time.
