NOTE: A quick Yahoo search for "Colross" and "Alexandria, led me to a page on one of my very favorite websites: Documenting the American South. In their online edition of Recollections Grave and Gay,  Mrs. Burton HARRISON wrote,

"Two daughters of Judge John Archibald Campbell, late of the Supreme Court of Washington - Mrs. Lay, and Miss Mary Ellen Campbell who married Arthur Pendleton Mason, of Colross, Alexandria - were an important element in the social side of Richmond life. To no one memory of those days do I turn now, with kindlier feeling, than to that of handsome and original Mary Ellen Campbell, who was one of my chosen friends."

Thus we have not only Virginia KING's maiden name (CAMPBELL), but also the name and occupation of her father!
