Re: Lee Family in Virginia

OK, here's what I have on the Charles Lee line. Caveats: This is all from info off the Web, very little of it is proven, use it at risk; ignore the "IMPOSSIBLE" and other tags - they're my notes about MY John Lee.

I have more information on Charles's sibs and pedigree. Charles is the son of William Lee and Dorothy Taylor. See the second listing... The sibs data is too big to post here. If you want I'll email you a Word file with all that stuff.

                            d/o Thomas Taylor & Elizabeth Harwood
                            b. 1681, Surry, King and Queen Co, VA
                            Information on Dorothy Taylor comes from "Log Cabins to White House" by Brewer. 13 Apr 1745 Dorothy was witness to will of Henry Williams in Richmond Co.,VA. signed as Dorothy Croucher. Dorothy and her brother Thomas were administrators of her husband William Lee's estate. She was left wearing apparel in her mother's will. "Dorothy to have my Coyas"
                     d. 1717, Richmond Co, VA (Source: Amelia Co. Order Book 7, p. 226, Letters of Administration of Estate of William Lee to Dorothy Lee, relict of William Lee on 12/4/1717.).
                     Documentation from "Log Cabins to White House" by Brewer. On page 275 "On 19 Jan 1668 William and wife Alice acknowledged debt of 250 acres of land to William Heath. On 5 Sep 1668 William and wife Alice sold their plantation to Thomas Adams (Surry Co. records p.54). From "Log Cabin" book on p.276 it gives William Lee( who married Dorothy Taylor) as one of his children. On p.273, Richard Henry Lee and Anna Constable are given as the parents of William (husband of Alice) but other sources state that Richard Lee's son William did not marry. Other sources say he married and had a daughter Mary who married a Heath and that he left his estate to her -- which was contested by his brother and returned to the Lee family. There is a William Lee and Mary Lee, witnesses in Richard Jesper's will, dated 1698 in North Farnham Parish, VA. Need to identify them.
                     Dorothy and brother Thomas Taylor were administrators of his estate. They left to William's grandchildren (children of Wm.3rd) the legacy left to him by his grandmother Elizabeth Taylor. Thomas Hanks received 9 lbs 11 shillings 8 pence; Joseph Hanks 2 lbs2 shillings 6 pence; Richard Lee 4 shillings; none was listed for John Lee who had probably died young.
