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!

Researching the Lee side Iva Lee is my great grandmother who is related some how to Robert E Lee ???

Susan M. Kirby-Veech said:   July 28, 2011 7:23 am PST
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.

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.

Is My Great Grandfather, Col. Philip LIghtfoot Lee of Kentucky, son of Wilford Lee, a descendent of William Lee and Alice Felton?

Vicki Kerr said:   July 23, 2011 12:08 pm PST
Hi, I've learned a lot about my family history since I started researching Ancestry.com and discovered that I am a direct descendant of the Lees of Virginia. Col Richard Henry Lee I. is my 9th great greatfather. There is a lot of history to research.

Thanks for working so hard on this website. I was at the Annual Lee Meeting this year at Stratford. Richard Henry Lee, (signer of the Dec. of Ind.), is my 6th Great Grandfather. Robert E. Lee would be my 1st cousin 5 times removed.

Vicki Fotheringham said:   June 4, 2011 11:01 pm PST
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.

Sabrina Lee Morris said:   June 3, 2011 9:53 am PST
I am just starting out on my journey. My maternal grandmother was a Lee. Her father was Sherwood Lee. I hope to have enough information to head out on a road trip.

Nina Lee said:   June 1, 2011 11:27 am PST
It is so good to others out there in search of their ancestry information. My ancestry starts at my granddad, Robert Franklin Lee then Thomas Uriah Lee, Jr; Thomas Uriah Lee, Sr; John Riley Lee; Samuel Lee, Sherrod Lee, Arthur Lee, 2nd; Arthur Lee, 1st; Richard Lee, 2nd; then Richard Henry Lee. Please stay in touch!!

Hi Jacquie, This looks great! Haven't read it all yet, but am always looking for more info on the Lee family! My mom was a Lee, daughter of Raymond Edward Lee who's father Amos Riley Lee, son of Philaner Lee & grandson of William Wise Lee. Thanks for all the work you've done! Darlene

Fantastic study of relationships and the importance of maintaining heritage. Thank you for sharing! G

Charlotte Lee Poyntz said:   May 9, 2011 11:50 am PST
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.

Sabrina Stringer said:   May 6, 2011 7:20 pm PST
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.

Patricia McGuire said:   April 22, 2011 2:53 pm PST
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.

Susie Guffin said:   April 20, 2011 4:12 am PST
Thank you for your research. It has helped me alot. Richard Henry Lee (1617-1664) is my 9th great grandfather.

J. Patrick Curley said:   April 8, 2011 4:26 pm PST
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.

Richard Lee Mudgett said:   April 2, 2011 6:53 pm PST
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.

Kristen McGee said:   March 28, 2011 7:33 pm PST
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 :+)

Patti McGuigan said:   March 6, 2011 2:40 pm PST
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.

Linda said:   March 4, 2011 10:06 pm PST
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?

Charles Henry Lee said:   January 28, 2011 2:52 pm PST
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.

Shirley Starks said:   October 1, 2010 12:08 pm PST
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.

Larry B. Lee said:   September 22, 2010 5:25 pm PST

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!

Pat Stevens said:   April 28, 2010 4:44 pm PST
Jacqueli, I haven't had a chance to go over it yet but it looks like quite a history. You say there is a link to our Maxwell's and I will be looking for it.

Sandra Rackard said:   April 27, 2010 12:21 pm PST
Looks interesting here! I hope I can find a link. Sandra
