Notes for EPHRAIM
NOTES: If indeed father William Lee
is descended from immigrant Richard Lee of Virginia, this line would be found in
old Buckingham County, Virginia and environs.
There is a book detailing this line (which deals mainly with the Lees of
Buckingham Co.) that stayed in Virginia. The
book is ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS OF GRESHAM LEE OF BUCKINGHAM COUNTY,
VIRGINIA, BY RICHARD EDWARD LEE, 108 WORLEY DRIVE, MADISON HEIGHTS, VA 24572
- published for the author by Gateway Press, Inc. 1001 N. Calvert Street,
Baltimore, MD 21202, 1991. Copies
are still available. This copy was
initially located in the Dallas Public Library Genealogical Section - downtown
It must be noted that
nowhere is it stated (but is inferred) that the will of William Lee d. 1810,
must be extant in records of Tennessee. NOTE:
This will is in Russell County, Virginia.
Also upon a visit to
the Fort Belknap Cemetery, Graham, Young County, Texas, I noted some of the
burials were Lees and Whiteleys.
FROM DESCENDANT LARRY
A Naomi Barlow, age 7,
was living in the household of Ephraim and Nancy in 1850 in Navarro County,
Texas. She was shown as being born
in Missouri? Who was she?
Larry also believes
that Ephraim's wife, Nancy Brooks Williams is the sister of Col. Leonard
Williams, based on information in an obituary of Brooks Williams Lee, Senior in
the Crosby newspaper, from the Brownwood Bulletin ca. 1894 which states he
assisted is uncle, Col. Lon/Len Williams. (This
would indeed make Brooks a nephew to Leonard Williams!
Notes for NANCY
Information taken from
Hill County Genealogical section of the Hillsboro Library surname card file
gives Nancy Brooks Williams parents as Lilburn Williams and Mary G. Thompson.
INFORMATION FROM LEE DESCENDANT LARRY RODERICK IS BASED ON RESEARCH INTO THE EPHRAIM LEE FAMILY AND SON BROOKS, WHEREIN SEVERAL ARTICLES STATE THAT BROOKS W. LEE'S UNCLE WAS COL. LON/LEN WILLIAMS, INDIAN AGENT
