Lees Of Virginia



Lee's of Virginia Guestbook Update 01/16/2012

For those of you that have posted so many of your questions about specific ancestors and individual lineages, I have decided to answer all of you as you have posted by designating a page just for your inquiries. You can now open up a discussion or genealogy question by signing up on the new Forum page.  This forum will give all of us a way to address specific genealogy questions and answers.  I will also be incorporating soon a website blog.   This will be more efficient than emailing you all individually as I have tried to do in the past, but I felt that if there are others out there with these same questions, they may benefit fit also by posting the answers and questions publicly.  Thank you again, as always for your posts and inquiries - and the continuous support you all have shown!  Don't forget to check back periodically, I am always trying to add information and new features to aid everyone with their genealogy needs!

It would be helpful if you had reference pages or endnotes of some type. It is difficult to find intext sources. Also, an index would make it easier to find individuals.

David Lee said:   December 29, 2011 8:38 am PST
Hello. I have researched our family tree and we are from the Hugh Lee line. Do you have any information on the connection with Hugh 1 (b.1609 Shropshire) and Hugh II (Sr) (b.1650 VA). Some people say that Hugh II was his son, others say he's not. If Hugh II is not Hugh I son, then the question I am trying to answer is who were his parents, and where did he come from? Do you have any research on this? Thank you for any insite you can provide.

Mickey Adair said:   December 27, 2011 1:01 pm PST

I am looking for the source info on "The Carter family, of French and Scot-Irish descent, came from Eng. abt 1621 and settled in Loudon Co, VA between thr Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers. Ellen S Carter had this on her family tree stating that by Bible record, it is possible to trace this family for 8 gen to James Carter b: abt 1743 in Loudon Co, VA. James and Hannah had 12 children, their oldest, John, b: 31 Dec 1765. Their youngest son, James Carter, was b: 28 Jun 1791. James is my husbands ancestor and I'm trying to find info on his parents. The Bible refer. would give me this. How can I find info on this Bible record? Ellen S Carter said she got the info from you, Jacquell Finley, a genealogist. Is it possible to get a copy of what was in the Bible, etc? I appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks

Hi, I'm 24yrs old and trying to find out about a Lee in my family. My great great great grandfather or my great great grandfather(i think its three greats) was Henry H. Lee. Born abt 1810 in Ohio(i think) He was mulatto.

Connie Hanson Taylor said:   November 17, 2011 9:27 am PST
How do I post a message? How will I know, for sure, that I am related to THE Robert E. Lee, C.S.A. and not just a Robert E. Lee?

Patricia Carter said:   November 12, 2011 8:08 pm PST
Great Job !!! I love true history !!! This has helped me in my search for the true history of Virginia. My roots run deep in Virginia. Surnames: Carter, Mauck, Costello, Butler, Hackley, Tarman, Fair Tharpe/Thorpe, Biggs, Thomas, Scott just to name a few. History not shared is history lost !!! From Virginia, Patty

I am searching for a connection to my Pulliam line. I have an Alford/Alfred B. Pulliam born 1838 in Virginia; died 1863 in Civil War; married 1858 Arkansas to Leanne House. My line includes their son John Abner Pulliam born 1859 Arkansas; died 1900 Arkansas: two wives Georgianna Balch and Mary Alice Camp. I know there is an Alfred B. Pulliam of the Tennessee Pulliams, but I do not believe he if my line. I tend to believe the Alford is the name I am looking for. Does this fit any clues you could give me? Thanks for your time and your offer to connect online.

If you could help i would appreciate it thanks again Rosemary (lee) Benner

Rose Klix said:   October 31, 2011 12:23 pm PST
My connection to the Lees is through my great grandmother Rebecca Levonia Lee (married Harmon Camp Olmstead).Rebecca's father was Andrew P. Lee. Unfortunately, I have not located the name for what the "P" stands, nor have I located any information on Andrew's parentage. Andrew P. Lee married 1st Anna L. Reeves. She was previously married to and widowed by a Tracy and a Grenard. My great grandmother Rebecca had siblings from Andrew and Anna as well as half siblings from his 2nd marriage after Anna's death. Rebecca was raised by her mother's relations after her mother's death. The family tradition states that Rebecca believed she was a cousin to Robert E. Lee. I'd appreciate it if you would let me know if you have any information on Andrew P. Lee which would connect him to his ancestors. If you wish, I'll supply any dates and locations of which I am aware. Thank you. Rose

Diane Leard Taylor said:   October 29, 2011 10:35 pm PST
Hello! I'm doing a little searching on my ancestry.com family tree and connected with you through John Quick Taylor/Catherine Shephard. I probably don't have any branches of my tree reaching into the Lee's, but I did want to touch base with you, let you know I've wandered into your neighborhood. I'm pretty much a novice to this, and try to do what I can when I can. But I do enjoy reaching out to people. So, I'm married into the Taylor family from Hunterdon County NJ, the family having reached into Hightstown, NJ

John Mack Cook said:   October 29, 2011 9:07 am PST
My mother was Lois Lee Gardner (Cook), her mother was Edna Carol Lee (Gardner), her father was James Taylor Lee Sr. (who came to Kansas and was born in 1846 in Sycamore, Wyandot County, Ohio), his father was Hugh Lee (born 26 JUL 1810 in Belmont, Ohio), his father was Robert Lee (who was born November 13, 1776 in Donegal, Ireland and died May 12, 1861 in near St. Clairsville, Ohio), his father was Hugh Lee (who was born 1740 in Donegal, Ireland and died 1813 in Cross Creek, Pennsylvania), his father was James Lee (who was born 1708 in Donegal, Ireland and died September 01, 1785 in Wreck of "The Faithful Steward"), his father was James Lee (who was born 1675 in Coton and died WFT Est. 1711-1766). I have no further information beyond this point and any help would be appreciated. Thank you, John Cook.

Curt said:   October 28, 2011 11:23 am PST
Hi Jacqueli: Thanks for your invitation to contact you. I am fairly new at Genealogy, but have made rapid progress in completing most of my family trees back to my great great grandparents. Hopefully my skills as a retired Lawyer will make up for lack of experience in this area. I have spent the last couple of weeks going over my Thurmond roots. My grandmother was a Thurman. Most trees have numerous errors in them. I believe this is due to the fact that every family head in the tree seemed to duplicate those names over and over again. Anyway you have the most accurate tree that I have seen. I would like to know particularly how you connect or source the Two Benjamin Thurmonds, and how you did such a good job of tying these persons in this tree down. I have spent a lot of time trying to do that. I also have a Randolph in my tree. Do you also connect to the Virginia Randolph's through the Lee's? Thanks Curt

Janice Henry said:   October 28, 2011 11:21 am PST
Hi Jacqui, How do you keep all this straight? Sorry for the question first but your site is amazing. I have been doing genealogy for 20 years you must have been doing it for 40. I started the old fashioned way actually going to the state capital and city halls on my side. I put it down for quite some time then started on ancestry. My husbandâ??s side is throughout Appalachia. I am in a whole different world! And a confusing one at that. It really takes a lot of studying to figure this out. So many wives died and most likely in childbirth and the husbands remarried and had more. I am currently working the Henry & Wright side. I ventured into the Stoutâ??s and got side tracked last night briefly. One Stout public tree stated to contact this web site. My husbandâ??s 3rd great grandmother was Darcus Virginia Stout Wright. She had 14 to 17 children. I am still working on it. She was on the 1860 census as Virginia. Daughter of David L and Margaret. I did find something that I didnâ??t see on any trees. Margaret died in the 1860â??s but I donâ??t think David did. I was tracking Tennessee because her name seemed easy. I found an 1870 census with Tennessee at age 18. She is living with a Leone Stout. I went back to 1860 and couldnâ??t find a Leone Stout. Do you if you think this might be Davidâ??s middle name? He is remarried to a Salena A and there are 3 new children. Susan 7, Thomas 5, Salena G 3. Susan age 7 indicates Margaret died before 1863. By 1880 Salena and her 3 children (Tennessee was married) moved to Gaston Jones, Wheatly, Tn. I would like to know where Davidâ??s 1st wifeâ??s name came from? I see some have it as Sarah Dove & Sarah Sally Polly. Janice Henry Canton, Ohio

Bobby Joyce Ferguson said:   October 14, 2011 6:36 pm PST
I really enjoyed reading your info on the Finley's. I have just started tracing my tree and I can't get further back than my great grandfather, Christopher Columbus Finley. The story goes, he was born on the ship coming over from Ireland. His birthdate is June 1842 In South Carolina. I assume they landed there. He married Margaret Elizabeth Simmons. Have you ever heard of this line? Would love to know. Thanks!

B. Scott Williams said:   October 13, 2011 6:22 am PST
I am a descendant of Clement Lee who was the son on John Lee and Deliah (?). After reading the paragraphs on the injustices on the Lee family line, I am curious if I am part of this same Lee line. I have heard that there are more than two Lee lines and some are not from Virginia. Now, I am open to hear the proof. I appreciate those that document their work and can show actual history. I am willing to be educated on the Lee family history and see where my family ties run. Thank you for all that you do/have done, B. Scott Williams

Phyllis McCurry said:   October 7, 2011 4:04 pm PST
I tried to send a message previously and it didn't go through. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time. How are you related to Reuben Teague?

Debra Gish Guyett said:   September 30, 2011 3:38 pm PST
Years ago my Great Aunt had her family tree done. In doing so she found she was related to Jane Brett who is the daughter of Margaret Lee and Richard Brett. Jane Brett is supposedly first cousin to Robert E. Lee. I have not been able to make the connection the two, can you be of any help?

I am sorry I should of given you the dates of James Archibald Lee he was born July 1853 in Simpson, Miss. and died 22 Apr. 1918 in Rusk Cherokee, Texas. He was married 3 times but the woman that is suppose to be the mother of James Caroll Lee, born 1 Sept. 1890 and died 3 Dec. 1972 in Texas is Cora Prisilla Delaughton Kearney. I do not know where she was born or when. If I knew this I might be able to find her parents. Do you think you can help me?

Linda Mary Lee said:   September 28, 2011 7:38 am PST
Hello Jacqueli, Thank you for all the wonderful information on your website! I don't what I would have done without your tree and website when I got started. I recently found a clue that I am related to Anne Constable, also. Her 1/2 Sister or Sister was Agnes Conyers? I am still researching this, but thank you for everything. If you ever need help data entry, letters, searching, let me know, I would be happy to spend some time for you.

Diane Kennedy said:   September 25, 2011 11:10 am PST
I really like your website!! It appears I am a direct descendant of Richard Lee through Anne Lee and Dorcas Youell. If you have uncovered any more recent information about Dorcas Youell and her relationship to Anne Lee, please let us know. Since Dorcas appears on your website, you obviously bellieve her to be the daughter of Anne Lee. However, there has been a lot of controversy about this issue on the genealogy websites due to a birthdate discrepancy. Thanks for any help you can provide -- Diane.

Rosita (Deedee) Lee said:   September 24, 2011 4:27 pm PST

Your web page is amazing. The effort you have put into it is much admired. I was wondering if you could clarify a question I have about one of my ancesters. I have found several statements saying that my 4G-grandmother was the neice of Gen. Robert E Lee. One 4G-grandmother was Mary Magdalen Lee born abt. 1820 in TN m. James Blair in Bowling Green KY d. abt 1893 in Edmonson Co. KY. Another 4 G-grandmother was Lucinda Lee b.abt. 1808 m. Isaac Blair d. abt 1860. Both have been said to be related Gen. Robert E. Lee as their Uncle. Any information would be appreciated. I can't find any info on their parents.

My paternal great-grandmother was Sarah Caroine Lee, her father was Thomas D. Lee. They lived in Edgewater, MD. I will have to go back and looks at my records to get the names of the fore-fathers to get the connection to the Lee's of Virginia. If you have any info on this that you could pass along, it would be greatly appreciated.

Karen Lee Pechacek said:   July 25, 2011 1:52 pm PST
I finally figured out my Lee background. From my Mom I descended from the Rolfe/Pocahontas marriage via Lavina Hill. They came from Catherine Neville nee Howard who later became a relative via a sibling of Robert E. Lee. Lavina Hill was a direct relative of Pocahontas which I found interesting. My dad descended via Anna Gorges nee Howard so I was able to go full circle..Very interesting.

Thank you so much for all the work you have put into this site! The Lee family is one that creates many, many challenges and is not an easy one to figure out. You have done much work and it is truly appreciated! Keep up the great work and if I can be of any help at any time, let me know.

I am descended from Stephen Lee(1711 or 1715-1791) through his son Gen. Henry Lee (1756-1845) of Mason Co., Kentucky. Do you have any verification of where Stephen Lee was born or who his parents were? I would love to have this settled once & for all. Thanks for all your hard work.

Nice to see another cousin. I am also a descendant from the original Lee line. My great-great grandmother was the last one to carry the Lee name . . . Caroline Lee. Very nice to learn more about Anne Constable.

I came across your website. I am researching my family ancestors. My connection to the Lee family is Ann T. Lee. She married Thomas William McGuire. I have hit a few brick walls and need some guidance.

Thank you for your research. It has helped me alot. Richard Henry Lee (1617-1664) is my 9th great grandfather.

Hi.... I was looking at your list of related presidents and you didn't have James K. Polk. My 3rd great grandfather Edward Franklin Lee's first wife was Jane Virginia Hayes - niece of James K. Polk.... Her mother was Ophelia Clarissa Polk. They had one child Dr. John B. Hayes Lee.

Jacqueli: Dr. John Andrew Jackson LEE, 31Mar 1818- 1889, Pulaski MO. is my 2g Grandfather. I have traced him to Thomas Lee 1799 to Thomas Lee 1747 to Peter Lee 1726 to Richard Lee 1677 to William/Alice Felton to Col Richard Lee I. Is Col Richard Lee I father to William Lee 1651 and Felton? Have I miss-traced John A.J. Lee? Thank you, Richard Lee Mudgett. Request guidance please.

Hi, My family is a descendant of a Henry Lee who grandfather was John and who'd father was Henry. Our family moved from Virginia to Tennessee around the 1800's. There are so many of us and so many Henrys that it is hard to find records if anyone has any I would appreciate it. Thank you :+)

Thanks so much for the info. I seem to be intertwined in the Lee's from the marriage of Alexander John Lee and Susanah Lee. It's all very curious and perplexing.

You have a large group of Hughes unattached to any other people. I am related to the Slaters at the tail end of those Hughes. I am trying to trace John L Slater and his wife Frances of Virginia who settled in Upper Township, Lawrence County, Ohio. He would appear to be my 3rd great-grand father. Any ideas?

Hi Jacqueli, I am a Lee from Kentucky. My father has done a lot of research on our family. I am trying to find out more. We believe we are descendants of Richard Lee I, the immigrant. We also believe that our branch lived in North Carolina before moving into Kentucky in the 1700's. Your website is very informative. I would love to email you and see if you have some info that will help me.

Cathy Jo Gillice said:   January 26, 2011 1:26 am PST
So glad I found your site. I am descended from Capt. Charles Lee Sr. son of Richard (the immigrant) Lee and Anne Constable. Exciting to learn more about the Lee family!

Elizbeth Morris Burgess said:   January 17, 2011 3:11 pm PST
Jacqueli, I was pleasantly surprised to find my query on your Lee site though no one responded as of yet. I mailed you the will of my Henry Lee and marriage certificate of his daughter Mary Willis Lee and Edwin Hord 1796 Woodford Co. Ky. I never knew if you had received them or my query. Do you post those items on your site? I wish you luck in being able to keep the web-site with donations. No offended at all.
