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!

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.

Steve Miller said:   January 15, 2011 5:02 pm PST
Interesting. I'm descended from Robert Redden Smith (b. 1 Apr 1751) and Elizabeth Lee (b. 7 Feb 1761) through their daughter, Susannah, who married Grinsfield Taylor. I'll follow your project closely! As you know, following Taylors and Smiths and Lees through the history of the South is challenging.

Adele` Mangum said:   January 14, 2011 9:46 am PST
My GGgrandfather was Edward Sangster, who married Mary Kendall Lee, daughter of Hancock Lee.

Virginia Lee Denny said:   January 9, 2011 9:02 am PST
Great website site. at family reuions they said the Lee's were our ancestry. I was trying to prove it for a year. I am on ancestry.com and followed the line back to Henry Lee child and date match. Does this mean anything?

Richard Alan Spearman said:   December 24, 2010 8:08 am PST
My GGgrandmother was Martha Ann Lee who was the GGGGGGgranddaughter of Richard "The Immigrant" Lee. I too have had e-mails telling me that my line is not correct because of DNA testing ( which has been diluted over all these generations), I turn a deaf ear to them. I appreciate your tenacity in this project, I have found it very intriguing the more I search and your info has helped solidify my findings, thank you, Richard

Paul Sangster said:   November 27, 2010 2:09 am PST
My gg grandfather Edward Sangster was married to Mary Kendall Lee. Her father was Hancock Lee. I have a law book inscribed "Hancock Lee's book" dated 1801. Like your site!

Marlene Lee Lawley said:   November 6, 2010 5:22 pm PST
I saw that you have John Lee Esquire as the son of Richard Henry Lee and Mary Young. What an exciting find! How on earth did you find this connection? Where did you find it? What documentation shows this relationship? I am one of his descendants- through his son John and grandson Burrell who moved to Alabama.

Karen Lee Pechacek said:   October 19, 2010 10:47 am PST
Not sure yet how I'm related to the Lee's . I've related to Sir Edward Phylyppe. Everyone in my family though has a middle name with the surname of "Lee". I imagine from Elizabeth Lee in England. Peace, Karen

Lyndal Lee said:   October 12, 2010 9:42 am PST
This site is wonderful. Thank you for it. Alot of good information.

Claudette Hill said:   October 2, 2010 1:04 pm PST
You mentioned you had more information for me on the Mary Reed Lea, Nancy Clay family. Mary Lea married Samuel Lee 1860-70 South Carolina. Land settlement La. 1808. Samuel Lee Jr. married Sarah Cleveland Lee daughter Daniel and Jemima Cleveland. You have all my Clays, Cleveland, Prosser, French, in your ancestry. Let's match these people up! Thanks for all you do to help so many people with the Lee name!Hope to hear from you.

Thanks for providing information.

Bill K Teague said:   September 27, 2010 7:19 am PST
I am the grandson (GS) of Edgar Neil Teague (b10/24/1891, d1/26/1961); G GS of William Perry Teague (b1/16/1845 d8/3/1904) and GG GS of a William Teague (bAbt 1815), but I can find no record of him except a 1860 census in SC. I note from ncestry.com you have a connection to John M Teague (b7/4/1884 b10/24/1904) in your tree when I did a search. Do you have further details on my GG GF William b Abt 1815?

David C Lee said:   September 25, 2010 6:32 pm PST
Fascinated by the work and history of our family. I have a book published by my great Aunt of our family tree going back to Richard Henry Lee. I will find it and post again.

Trish Burdick said:   September 8, 2010 7:39 am PST
Hello Jacqueli. I'm so excited to find your website! Am desperately looking for information regarding the parents of Roland Lee (b. around 1774, married to Kiziah Brammer) In particular, the marriage of a John Lee (noted to be Roland's father) from the 1700s. Some say he married a Sarah Jane Brazill, some say he married a Sarah Ward. Either way, I'm stuck in that link. There are two family stories that have been passed down. One that we are cousins of Robert E. Lee, and the other is that a member of our family at some point assisted Mary Queen of Scots. If any of this rings a bell, please contact me. Any and all info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and good luck!

Claudette Hill said:   August 20, 2010 2:29 pm PST
I am supposed to be related to Gen Robert E. Lee. I have Lee, Lea, French, Cleveland, Prosser and have not tied them together yet as to where Robert E. Lee fits in. They say Robert's mother and this mystery person were sisters ,but that could mean sister-inlaws.No Lee males for DNA. Frustrated!! Ideas??

Raquel said:   August 15, 2010 8:52 am PST
I'm a member on ancestry.com. was unable to send you a message through the site. Anyways I wanted to thank you for all the research and information you provided on the starkeys from Illinois and Kansas. :)

Found your website on ancestry.com My husband's great grandfather is Charles Francis Martin of Cooke Co., TX. Love your site!

Shirley R. Weekley said:   May 9, 2010 7:40 am PST
Hi Jacqueli... Love your website! I have recently discovered my connection to the William Lee Line. The geneaology I have was prepared by my cousin Denzil Klippel from Staten Island N.Y. William's middle name is listed as Constable, obviously after his mother's maiden name. I don't see his middle name being used. Why is that? ......My connection to the line starts on my mothers paternal side.Sarah Ann Lee(daughter of William Lee and Sarah"Sallie" Younger) was my mothers paternal grandmother.I thank you for all your efforts on behalf of the family and will check your website frequently. Thanks

Carol Eads said:   May 8, 2010 12:56 pm PST
I got a response to an email I had sent earlier saying that you had information on the "Stout" family. I tried the email link on your webside but it did not work, so hopefully you will see this.

LEWIEGAND said:   May 3, 2010 2:44 pm PST
Your site is fantastic, and I will be spending some time here. My Mother is a Ragsdale, and we descend from Lewis Ragsdale in your Tree. Keep the passion!

Liz Burgess said:   April 23, 2010 6:44 am PST
Need more info on "George" Henry Lee born 2 July 1737 Va. and wife Mary Ludwell-married 1759 Mason Co. Ky. "George" ? Henry is the son of Hancock Lee born 1709 and Mary Willis. My Henry Lee who died 1804 Woodford co. Ky. had a daughter Mary Willis Lee who married Edwin Hord. At the time of Henry Lee's death his wife was Frances with children: Hancock, Willis, John, Sarah, Nancy and Betsy. Mary Willis Lee Hord was not mentioned in the will but I have proof she was Henry Lee's daughter. Any help proving the marriages of Henry and wives Mary Ludwell and Frances would be appreciated.

Jacqueli - Do you have a Richard L Lee in your Lee line that was married to a Jessie Ida Livesay - she was born 1-28-1917. They used to own a farm that later was sold and became part of what is now Dulles Airport outside Washington DC. Jessie was the sister to my grandfather, Arthur Benjamin Livesay.
