      The Lee family cemetery is the only remaining evidence of the property's former association with the Lee family of Blenheim. The site is found on the property of the Mirant, formerly PEPCO, powerplant on the south side of the Harry W. Nice Bridge, overlooking the Potomac River. The Lee cemetery site is significant for its association with the Lee family of Maryland, one of the most prominent families in the area. Squire Richard Lee of Blenheim was the son of merchant Philip Lee, who once served as Naval Officer of the "North Potomac District". Philip Lee, the son of Col. Richard Lee the emigrant to Virginia, settled at Lee's Purchase in Charles County. Squire Richard Lee was the oldest son of Philip Lee and was educated in England before being admitted to Middle Temple as a member of the bar in May 1719. After returning to Maryland her served as Naval Officer for the Potomac River. He was president of the Governor's Council of Maryland for many years. Unlike his Virginia cousins Richard Henry Lee of Chantilly and Light Horse Harry Lee of Stratford Hall, Squire Richard Lee was a staunch Loyalist. The cemetery contains the graves of Richard Lee, his wife Grace R. Lee, and their daughter Alice Weems. Also buried here is Russell Lee, whose tomb describes him as "the last fond hope of a respectable and a numerous and once extensive family”. Russell was likely a son or grandson of Richard and Grace Lee.
