Subject: [LEE] JOHN LEE, ESQUIRE OF JOHNSTON COUNTY, NC
Date: Wed, 19 Nov 2003 08:09:00 EST
Beginning with the book, John Lee, Esquire of Johnston County, North Carolina
and Some of His Descendants, I made contact with those of the living
compilers and became a research cohort of Lazelle Parsons Long. At the time, I
believed that my line descended from John Lee, Esq. through his son, Robert Lee,
which was subsequently confirmed in our research, resulting in the booklet,
Robert and Godfrey Lee, privately published in 1979. My line runs:
JOHN LEE, SR/ESQ b. c1690-1700 m. Mary _____ (poss.
Bryan). Positively identified in Johnston Co., NC
ROBERT LEE (named in John Lee's will) m. Elizabeth___
GODFREY LEE m. Elizabeth dau/o John Stevens of
Johnston Co., NC. Godfrey admin. of estate of
Robert Lee, Dec'd., 1789.
NEEDHAM LEE, SR., b. c1786 SC m1 (Lydia) Pryor; m2
Sarah A. Sloan. Descent through dau. of Robert
Pryor proved by his will, though dau's name is
traditional (Lydia) as she pre-deceased her father.
