\ The compiler of this Genealogy will in few words explain why 
^■i she has undertaken a work of this kind, belonging, as it seems to 
her, more to a person accustomed to literar}^ labor than to one 
who had never written a line for the press. 

The collection of material for a Genealogy was begun about 
1850, by her father, Charles Lee, of Norwich, Conn., for his own 
pleasure, and continued at intervals until his death, in 1865. 
Three or four years since, Rev. Samuel Lee, of New Ipswich, 
N. H., was very desirous that she who had been her father's 
helper, should take it up, adding what could be gathered, to bring 
it down to the present time. The beloved father's love for the 
work, and her love and veneration for him, were the only reasons 
for consenting to finish and publish it. 

You now have the little book ; excuse the errors which 3'ou will 
no doubt find, and judge it leniently. She will feel amply rewarded 
for all the trouble and labor it has cost her, if some one better 
qualified is incited by its perusal to make a more interesting and 
perfect history of the Farmington Lees. 

To all those who have promptly and kindly aided her by letter, 
or otherwise, grateful thanks are here returned.

Note. — In presenting this volume to the descendants of John 
Lee of Farmington, Conn., it should be here stated that we are 
largely indebted to Miss Sarah Marsh Lee of Norwich, compiler 
of "John Lee and His Descendants," 1878. for the foundation 
of this work, quoting largely from her book. Genealogical re- 
searches pursued by her have been continued still farther, the 
result of which is here presented to the reader.

INTRODUCTION. 



It is natural for any person of common intelligence to desire 
to know something of his origin, and, if never given to research 
for that information himself, he would be expected to listen with 
some degree of interest to anyone who had made that research 
for him. An honorable ancestry is a source of honorable pride. 

The individual who embarks in genealogical literature with the 
expectation of amassing a fortune or earning his bread, even, is 
very sure to meet with disappointment, to remain poor, and to 
suffer from hunger if he has no other resqurce upon which to 
rely. 

The number who have a natural taste for genealogy is com- 
paratively small. It is a subject which requires cultivation in 
order to awaken much interest in all its details. No one should 
think of embarking upon such an enterprise without considering 
the subject thoroughly, and being possessed of at least two or 
three ver}' essential requisites, among which may be named a 
large stock of patience, a reasonable amount of leisure, and a 
cash capital sufficient to defra}' the expense of postage, station- 
ery, express charges, and the various little ct cctcras which will 
present themselves from time to time, long before his work is 
ready for the press, and which, in the aggregate, will amount to 
a formidable sum, for a small capitalist, before he can realize the 
first dollar from his enterprise. 

STARTING POINT. 

Having, after mature deliberation, decided to embark in the 
hazardous enterprise, the first thing to do is, to decide upon a 
starting point, which, in this country, is usually established at the 
advent of the first immigrant of the family to the American 
shores, and then, if possible, from that point, to trace backwards 
through the "•dark ages," to establish a connection with nobility 
or royalty, for indomitable ambition reigns supreme in the human 
breast, to boast of 

BLUE BLOOD 

in his veins. While it may be a laudable ambition to trace 
an undisputed connection with a family of noble traits, it so hap- 



D INTRODUCTION. 

pens that blue blood tells for little, in connection with American 
institutions, except for the satisfaction of the individual, and if, 
perchance, he glories in being able to trace his lineage back to 
Julius Caesar or to King Solomon, few will be found to do him 
homage, to rejoice with him, or to envy him. Farther, the royal, 
or blue-blood, will have become so diluted in a few generations of 
isolation, that a chemical process would be required to analyze it, 
and even then, the discoveries would prove but homoeopathic or 
microscopic. Thus, the first generation of royalty or nobility is 
supposed to be of full blood, the second generation would be a 
half blood, the third generation a quarter blood, the fourth gen- 
eration an eighth blood, the fifth generation but a /,; and so on 
till the tenth generation is possessed of but ^\^ part of the 
original, and through the veins of the fifteenth generation would 
course but x^wi part of the ancestral blood, and thence onward 
becoming ever more diluted by a diminishing geometrical series 
till it becomes an infinitesimal quantity. 

FAMILY CONNECTIONS ABROAD. 

The result of attempts which some genealogists have made to 
trace their lineage back five or six generations in the old country 
is seldom reliable. It is certainly creditable to be able to trace 
to an honorable ancestry, and such attempts should, by no means, 
be discouraged. They ma}^ be able to establish, what, to them, 
appears satisfactory, whether fact or fiction. It may furnish an 
object for the mind to rest upon, in fancied certainty of their blue 
blood, for "Where ignorance is bliss, 'twere foll\' to be wise." 

IMPOSITIONS 

are quite too frequent. Professional genealogists are often 
applied to in the old country, who, knowing the ambition of their 
American applicants, are able to furnish them with a flattering 
record of their ancestry, or of a family bearing the same name, 
without regard to a positive connection. The applicants being 
able neither to disprove or to verify, accept it as genuine, which 
may or may not be in fact, and the professional usually pockets a 
fee, more or less liberal, in proportion to the flattering nature of 
the records furnished These remarks, however, should not 
apply to a class of foreign genealogists of established reputation. 
It is not probable that one genealogist in twenty succeeds in 
establishing a correct line of ancestry of five generations on the 
other side of the Atlantic, whose ancestors migrated to this 
country 150 to 200 years ago, which would be accepted as 



INTRODUCTION. . 7 

evidence In a court of justice : hence, a formidable obstacle to 
obtaining a "vast fortune in the Bank of England awaiting 
American heirs." 

Says a reliable writer : --It is stated among the librarians and 
officers of Historical Institutions in the Eastern States, that not 
toi per cent, of inquiries succeed in establishing the connection 
between their ancestors and the family abroad. Other authorities 
say tii'o per cent. Most of their ancestors fled from religious 
persecution, and instead of promulgating their derivation or 
history, rather suppressed all knowledge of it. so that their 
descendants have no reliable traditions." 

Certain it is, that wc have been unable as yet to establish any 
positive connection of our ancestor with any family abroad. 

FORMIDABLE OBSTACLES. 

Having established a starting point — say of a half dozen gener- 
ations in the American past — the first thing to be done is to 
examine all the old public and family records which can be found, 
few of which are strictl}' reliable, often so obscured by the ravages 
of time as with difficulty to be traced, and often-times, not one- 
half oi which are legible. The traditions and information to be 
gathered from the living are very unreliable and records are often 
conflicting. After two or three generations the descendants 
begin to scatter, and succeeding generations grow up knowing 
little or nothing of their kindred, who still linger around the old 
homestead, or are scattered in other parts of the country, till at 
last they are entirely lost sight of to each other. 

Such has been the case in our own family, till different branches 
have been lost to view for more than a century, and have been 
discovered, and their identity traced, onl}^ by laborious research. 

The descendants of several families of our ancestor are 
supposed still to exist, the parents of whom ''moved west" more 
than a century ago, leaving not a trace behind. 

Among the formidable obstacles to be encountered by the 
genealogist are the indifference and suspicion of his own kindred. 
He obtains the address of some kinsman, who he believes would 
feel some interest in his family history, and addresses to him a 
letter of inquiry. Scores of letters never meet the least 
attention — are never heard from, although known to have been 
received, as the return card would insure their return were it 
otherwise. Others remain weeks and months without attention, 
holding the genealogist in suspense, not knowing whether he 



8 INTRODUCTION. 

may expect to receive their records or not ; in the meantime 
holding pages and numbers open at a great inconvenience and 
delay — for every individual must have a proper number in 
rotation — till, despairing of receiving the records inquired for, the 
pages and numbers are filled up. Instances have occurred in 
which within one day afterwards, the records have been received, 
and in order to give them their proper place among the genera- 
tions, required the re-arranging and re-writing of many pages, 
and re-numbering of 500 to 1000 numbers, involving in some cases 
two or three days' extra labor, all of which might have been 
obviated by punctuality of the correspondent.' In other cases the 
respondents to letters indicate a suspicion of some speculation at 
their expense, although not asked to contribute one cent, and 
scores of letters are returned "unclaimed." 

A few families have kept no records, and are unable to furnish 
any information, except from an unreliable memory — though we 
are happy to state that such cases are rare — while others, to their 
credit be it said, are able to furnish full, intelligible and unmis- 
takable records. 

"WHAT nOOD DORS IT DO, 

to rake up all these old records?" says one. "What good does it 
do to erect a monument to the memory of your friends?" we 
respond. To die and be forgotten by all your friends is a thought 
repugnant to the heart of anyone possessed of human instincts. 
A history of the family is to the family, what a history of the State 
is to the State, and, if properly written, should prove a piece of 
valuable family literature. 

"What do I care for old dead ancestors," said another. Such 
people are not to be envied. It may be reasonably assumed that 
posterity will care nothing for them. 

MISS SARAH M. LEE's WORK. 

In 1878 was published John Lee and His Descendants, by 
Miss Sarah Marsh Lee of Norwich, commenced by her father, 
Deacon Charles Lee, some years previous. His decease in 1865, 
seemed, at first, to terminate all efforts in that direction. His 
daughter, who had been his efficient helper, was at length 
encouraged to persevere and complete the work — a work credit- 
able alike, to both father and daughter — and, although it com- 
prised the names of nearly iioo of the descendants of John Lee, 
it, by no means included them all, and, although this volume con- 
tains more than four times as many names, it in no way diminishes 



INTRODUCTION. 9 

the credit to which she is entitled. She collected what appeared 
attainable at that time, and opened the way which her successors 
have followed, and we have copied freely from her work. 

LEE GATHERING OF 1 884. 

In 1882, it was conceived by Mr. William Wallace Lee of 
Meriden, that by utilizing her work as a basis, it would be pos- 
sible to call together a goodly number of the kindred in a general 
family gathering, which, in 1884, as is well known, resulted in a 
success far beyond the most sanguine expectation of himself or 
friends, the proceedings of which Avere published by him, in a 
tasteful little volume, entitled, "Lee Family Gathering." At this 
meeting was formed the "Lee Association," with himself assec- 
retary, and eventually as treasurer, although there were no funds 
to take charge of. That oflfice was complimentary only. 

A new volume. 

His correspondence with the few on the subject of this meet- 
ing extended from one family to another, as new discoveries were 
made, and continued several years, till it became voluminous, and 
in this manner a large amount of genealogical material was col- 
lected, which, though entirely disconnected, and by no means 
complete, was still valuable. Many family traditions, facts and 
names, were thus rescued from oblivion, from elder generations, 
which have since passed away, and which, with nothing to call 
them out, would have been lost to posterity. 

This mass of correspondence had, in 1892, accumulated to 
what, as estimated by him, amounted to nearl}^ 1,000 letters, and 
from this fact he conceived the idea of a new, revised and 
enlarged edition of the family genealogy. 

calling assistance. 
Finding it impossible to devote the necessary time himself to 
compile this mass of miscellaneous material, in 1892 he solicited 
the assistance of the writer to take hold of the work. It appeared 
like a formidable task to produce anything tangible from such a 
mass of heterogeneous manuscript, but at the end of three 
months' close application the chaotic mass had been assorted, a 
portion consigned to the waste basket, other portions compiled 
for use, awaiting the connecting links, and still other portions 
filed away for future reference. During that time a fair progress 
had been made in compiling the most numerous branch of the 



10 INTRODUC'I'ION. 

family and a commencement made on the others, and an extensive 
correspondence had been opened with kindred in more than 
twenty States, besides in the Canadas and England. 

WORK SUSPENDED. 

At length it became necessary to suspend the work for want of 
material for continuous progress in order of the generations. 
Three years intervened, during which time a continuous corre- 
spondence was maintained, both by the secretary and the writer, 
and during the travels of the latter, calls were made at more than 
fifty homes of the kindred in New Hampshire, Connecticut, 
Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, 
Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, 
Tennessee, Florida, California and Ontario, taking many family 
records personally. 

RESEARCHES. 

During this interval of three years, researches were continued 
and old records examined in the Probate office and State archives 
at Hartford, and public records at Farmington, Plainville, 
Southington, Meriden, Wallingford, New Haven, Willimantic, 
Coventry, Kent, Salisbury, Windsor and Lebanon, in Connecticut: 
Northampton, Hadley and Pittsfield, Massachusetts: Ludlow, 
Vermont, and various works in the rooms of the New England 
Genealogical Society at Boston, besides the examination of more 
than twenty-five years' publication of the Connecticut Courant of 
the last century, including the period of the Revolutionary war, 
and numerous other works to be found in the Atheneum in 
Hartford. To the above list may be added many ancient church 
records. More than thirty-five old cemeteries were visited in Con- 
necticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York and Ontario, to 
obtain dates and other items, some of which were prolific of 
results, others nearly or quite barren. No pains or labor have 
been avoided where there was a prospect of beneficial result. The 
secretary and the writer have expended both time and means in 
their researches, with no expectation of remuneration for time 
spent, except the satisfaction of rescuing from oblivion the 
many items of family history. Great credit is especially due to 
William Wallace Lee for his untiring perseverance in search of 
lost families and successful results. 

AID OBTAINED MISS SARAH K. LEE. 

In the meantime, in order to crowd the work as fast as practi- 
cal, aid had been solicited from Miss Sarah Fiske Lee of New

INTRODUCTION. H 

Ipswich, N. H., a daughter of Rev. Samuel Lee, the instigator 
of the first genealogy of the family, and the discoverer of the 
original headstone of John Lee, which had, for many years, been 
lost sight of — a lady of education and ability. The task was 
cheerfully undertaken, and to her belongs the credit of compiling 
the two branches of John and Stephen, besides material aid 
rendered in various ways. No opportunity has been left unim- 
proved by her to make researches in the New England Genea- 
logical Society's library in Boston, many discoveries in which 
have proved exceedingly valuable. But she will tell her own story. 

INTEREST IN GENEALOGY. 

The organization of the various orders of Sons and Daughters 
of the Revolution, Colonial Dames, and other kindred orders, has 
awakened a certain degree of interest in genealogy, but in a large 
majority of cases, when their line has been traced far enough to 
establish the eligibility of the individuals to those orders, their 
interest ceases. This ought not to be. An interest once awak- 
ened should be pursued, for the history of our family should be a 
history of the greatest interest. Several minor branches of our 
family still remain undiscovered- — have been lost sight of more 
than a century, and we do not like to abandon the hope that they 
may yet be found and added to our numbers. Notwithstanding 
the apparent indifference on the subject, much is being done. 
The number of works on American genealogy in the Connecticut 
libraries is about 600, and the New England Genealogical Society 
and New York libraries contain about goo. 

MILITARY SERVICE. 

A special effort has been made to collect the names of those 
who served in the various wars of the country. In the early 
Indian wars, few names of the participants were preserved except 
of the officers. As every able-bodied man was presumed to be a 
soldier in colonial days, it is not probable that the earlier genera- 
tions of our family escaped being called into service during the 
various Indian wars and alarms, and it is to be regretted that not 
a single name has been found, except that of our maternal ances- 
tor, Stephen Hart. Thorough researches have been made in the 
State archives for a list of those who served in the French and 
Indian war of 1756 — 63, and the result of our discovery is recorded 
in these pages. 

Revolutionary records have also been thoroughly examined. 



12 INTRODUCTION. 

and although many names have been found, we are confident 
that the hst does not inckide all who are entitled to credit. Some 
were credited in other States than Connecticut. 

Before the war of 1812 — 15, the Lees had become widely 
scattered, and but few names are found on the Connecticut 
records. 

Of those engaged in the late civil war, we have been able to 
collect names and records from States widely separated, there 
being a greater number of descendants in other States than in 
the State of Connecticut, but we are satisfied that our list is quite 
incomplete — ^that there are many whose names have not been 
reported. 

It will be seen that a large number bear other names than Lee, 
but it will be remembered that no less Lee blood courses through 
their veins from the fact that they are descended through the 
female side of the family. They are entitled to the same recog- 
nition as though bearing the name. 

By comparing notes, it will be found that kindred from States 
widely separated were often engaged in the same battles without 
knowing it, and in frequent instances were contending against 
Southern kindred in the Confederate army. 

ERRORS. 

It would be absurd to assert that a work composed largely of 
dates and statistics, and collected from so many different sources 
and individuals, would be void of some errors, notwithstanding 
the utmost care. The causes are numerous, a few of which may 
be named. 

One prolific source of error in dates, arises from indistinct 
manuscript furnished by correspondents, and also from their own 
unconscious errors. Again, different members of the same family 
often furnish conflicting dates. Transcribing and typographic 
errors will sometimes unavoidably occur — frequently the year only 
of births is given. Errors arise from indistinct manuscript in 
similar names. Thus Hannah for Harriet, William for Willard — 
double names sometimes reversed by different members of the 
family — Lucy Jane for Jane Lucy, Ludosky M. instead of Maria 
L. — sometimes initials only are furnished, as B. R. Lee, J. H. 
Lee, b. 1836 — by others the pet name only is furnished as 
Freddie, Willie, Sadie, Matie, etc. 

Such errors are, by no means, the fault of the compilers. 
Scores of letters have been written to obtain correction of trivial 
errors, many of which met with prompt response, others were 



INTRODUCTION. 13 

totally neglected. We would kindly request, however, that any 
errors which may be discovered, be reported to the compilers or 
secretary of the association for correction in any future work. 

RESPONSIBILITY. 

It has been remarked on a previous page, that scores of letters 
of inquiry had been neglected for months, and others had never 
been acknowledged. These remarks should not be so construed 
as to apply to correspondents in general, for the greater number 
have expressed an interest in the work, and an anxiety to assist, 
and have rendered efficient aid, for which they are entitled to 
many thanks. To enumerate them all would require a long list 
of names and to draw a line of demarkation would be a delicate 
task. It is safe, however, to say that one-third of the labor of 
the compilers might have been obviated by the punctuality of 
those who were delinquent. 

It would have afforded us great pleasure to mention something 
further of individuals — public positions held, military history, or 
items of family interest, but we were not in possession of the 
facts, nor could we obtain them, though many letters were writ- 
ten expressly for that purpose. Hence, it is obvious that the 
compilers cannot hold themselves responsible for the omission. 

EXPENSES. 

By those who gave the subject a thought, it was not expected 
that the compilers, who had alread}' expended several hundred 
dollars, and a large amount of time, with so little prospect of 
remuneration, would advance the necessary funds for publication 
of a work in which others should also take a deep interest. 

When the subject was named at the re-union at Farmington, in 
Aug., i8g6, the response from those present was liberal — both by 
donation and advance subscriptions, for a work which could not 
appear for several months. Other subscriptions followed later 
from various parts of the country. The names of both donors 
and advance subscribers will be found on another page. All who 
have nobly aided will please accept the thanks of the Publishing 
Committee, and although, at this writing, the funds in hand are 
not quite sufficient to defray the entire expense of publishing and 
incidentals attendant, we have faith in the liberality of the Lee 
descendants, and that they will see the committee safely through. 

A few there were who stood aloof and said, "we will see what 
the work is before we subscribe for it;" others said, "we will 
take a copy when it comes out." 



14 INTRODUCTION. 

To those we would say, that if all had acted on the same 
principle the work never would have come out. 

The genealogy of several families, who could be named, has 
been ready for publication for several years awaiting funds. In 
contrast with those the liberality of the Lees is to be commended. 



CONCLUSION. 

That the work of compiling this genealogy has been no easy 
task will be readily understood, when it is stated that there were 
three prominent families in the State by the same name during 
the last century, besides as many in Massachusetts which, in the 
course of two or three generations, became mingled together, 
requiring no little investigation to discriminate between them, 
and, to add to the labor, many in the different families bore pre- 
cisely the same Christian names. Several families have been 
omitted who believed themselves connected with ours, but were 
unable to establish the connection. 

The result of our labor is included in this volume. Unwearied 
pains have been taken to be correct in all statements and details. 
If we have failed it has not been for want of industry—" to err is 
human." The compilers have had no advantages of membership 
of historical or genealogical societies, or opportunity for advice 
or suggestions from experienced genealogists, but were novices 
in the work. Such as it is, it is now before you, and we beg our 
readers to judge leniently, and bear in mind that it has been a 
"labor of love, rather than one of profit," and that we expect to 
acquire neither fame nor fortune by it, but, instead, to incur many 
harsh criticisms, whether deserved or undeserved. To those who 
are disposed to criticise harshly, we have only to say: "■You try it." 

We felt conscious that such a work must be accomplished dur- 
ing the present generation, if accomplished at all, for elder 
generations were fast passing away and opportunities were fast 
receding. It is a source of regret that the work of the writer 
could not have fallen into more able hands, but if we have suc- 
ceeded in rescuing from oblivion the history of our family, or 
have contributed to awaken an interest on the subject, our object 
has been accomplished. 

During the preparation of the work, the writer, although a 
resident of Kenosha, Wis., spent more than a year and a half in 
the State of Connecticut for convenience of access to State

archives at Hartford, and other public records throughout the 
State, and also for personal conference with the secretary and 
others interested.

TO THE 

DESCENDANTS 

OF 

John and Stephen. 



When plans were being formed for publishing a second edition 
of John Lee and His Descendants, I was asked to take charge 
of the John branch. I assented readily, glad to aid a project, 
specially dear to me. Later, as no one seemed ready to arrange 
the Stephen branch, it was suggested that I should also take 
charge of that. In this work I have had the efficient aid of Mrs. 
Jeannette Lee Coe of Winsted, Conn., who has furnished the 
record of her grandfather's family. I desire to acknowledge my 
obligation to Mr. Leonard Lee for his help in both obtaining 
and noting records which otherwise would not have been acces- 
sible to me. The clearness and legibility of his records left noth- 
ing to be desired. 

As the work has been done by two parties widely separated, 
readers will please pardon a few slight differences in the minor 
details of arrangement. 

These years of labor have been an offering of love to the 
memory of my venerated father, one of the first in our whole 
family to make genealogical researches and to arouse the interest 
of others — to my young brother, whose enthusiasm would have 
made him an efficient helper, had he not been called to join the 
army of those who have gone before — and to the beloved 
"Cousin Sarah," who, with patient labor and generous bounty, 
gave us that first Lee Book which has made possible this larger 
edition. 

Pardon the many errors which are on these pages, of necessity, 
from the fallible humanity of the writer, but I hope you will say 
of it as Dr. Samuel Johnson said of a dictionary. "The worst 
is better than none, and the best cannot be expected to be quite 
true."

From the city records of Leyden, Holland, among the lists of 
names, mostly natives of the eastern coast of England, especially 
Essex County and Colchester, there were Samuel and Bridget 
Lee, the latter a daughter of Joos Lee.* These came to New 
England and settled here. 

There is no evidence that either the Pilgrims from Leyden, or 
those who left for St. Christopher's and the Barbadoes were in 
any way related to our ancestor, John Lee. But is it not 
probable that of the emigrants to these islands, many found their 
way to New England, where they could enjoy religious liberty, 
and that from these men have come some of the families of the 
name of Lee in other parts of Connecticut, and in Massachusetts, 
Vermont and New Jersey? It is historical, that many of the 
emigrants to the West India Islands finally settled in New 
England.

Lees of English History. 

The name first appears as Lega, De Le, De la Lee, and of various 
spelling, gradually taking the present form, Lee. In the " Dooms- 
day Book" Lega and Lee are often used to denote the same family. 
The name has also sometimes assumed still other forms, as Lea, 
Leigh, Lay and Ley. The word "Lee" signifies a "pasture, 
meadow or grass land." Previous to the use of surnames, 
persons were designated by the place of their residence, or some 
epithet descriptive of their personal character or occupation. 
Thus, John, residing near the lee, eventually became "John 
Lee," Samuel, very pale or white, became "Samuel White," and 
William the carpenter, became "William Carpenter," etc. 

The family of Lee is one of the most ancient in English his- 
tory. In the eleventh century the name of Launcelot Lee is 
associated with William the Conqueror, and is of Norman origin, , 
and in the division of estates by that chieftain, a fine estate in 
Essex county was bestowed upon him. 

Lionel Lee "raised a company of gentlemen cavaliers," at the 
head of which he accompanied Richard Cceur de Leon, in the 
third crusade, A. D. 1192. For gallant conduct at the siege of 
Acre, he was made " Earl of Litchfield," and another estate was 
given to the family, which was later called "Ditchly. " The 
armor worn by the crusaders is still preserved in the Horse 
Armory, Tower of London. They were devoted followers of the 
Stuarts, and distinguished for loyalty to the crown, and, for their 
acts of valor, received various honors and distinctions. Two of 
the name have been Knights of the Garter, and their banners, 
surmounted by the "Lee Arms," may be seen in St. George's 
Chapel, Windsor. 

For the satisfaction of those who may be interested in tracing 
the origin of the family to nobility and antiquity, we make a few 
extracts from the "Baronetage of England," published in the 
middle of the last century. They will be found to be more 
curious than useful at the present day. 

Hugh de la Lee was witness to a grant of land and an abbey 
of Bilderwas in 1155. 



20 INTRODUCTION. 

Reginald de la Lee was a witness to deeds of estates, and 
sons John de la Lee and Phillip de la Lee " held lands of ^20 or 
more, per annum in Shropshire and were summoned to attend 
the king with Horse and Arms, to go beyond sea." 

Thomas de la Lee, Lord of Stanton, with his wife Petronilla, 
grant to Thomas, their son and heir, and to the heirs of his body, 
an estate in Stanton, and also grant lands to his brother, Stephen 
de la Lee. The seal to these deeds is described "a Fess 
chequey, between 10 Billetts," circumscribed " Sig. Thomas du 
Lee," with a crest. 

Reginald de la Lee was heir to an estate on which he was 
living in 1320. He had issue, John de la Lee, Knight, called 
Lord of Roden, 1321, who was one of the Knights of Shropshire 
in the parliament held at York. To him Thomas de la Lee and 
his wife granted all their lands, " seminatam cum terra seminata " 
(i. e. saved and land not saved.) 

Humphrey de la Lee of Langley Esquire, " served all offices 
suiting his degree, as Justice of Peace and Lieutenant of the 
county, and was advanced to the dignity of Baronet, 3 May, 
1620." 

"Sir Richard Lee of Langley, Baronet, was one of the 
Knights of the Shire in the parliament that met in 1640, and 
adhering faithfully to King Charles the First, in the time of his 
trouble, did not a little contribute to his assistance when his 
Majesty set up his standard. He afterwards marched with the 
king to Oxford and sat among those member-s who met there in 
1643, whereby he became a great sufferer in his estate. He 
took to wife Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Edward Allin, Knight 
and Alderman of London." 

Sir Henry Lee, of "Quarenden Bucks" was created "Earl of 
Litchfield" May 22, 1611. He was succeeded by his son. Sir 
Edward Henry Lee in 1674, and he by his son. Sir George 
Henry Lee, Feb. 13, 1716. 

John de Lee, Knight of Essex, was sent to Parliament A. D., 
1307. 



INTRODUCTION. 21 

Thomas, son of Johis Lee, bequeaths to his eldest son the 
patrimonial estate near "Pebenhul," an ancient village in Shrop- 
shire, now extinct. Johis, or Johannes Lee is mentioned 
frequently in parliamentary writs of Edward II. 

Further similar extracts might be made but these are deemed 
sufficient. 

An old volume of English history, which gives the derivation 
of names, mentions that the family of "John Lee of Lee Hall," 
Parish of Wibenbury, County of Chester, sometimes spelled the 
name Lee, Lea, Leigh and De la Lee. 

Various descriptions of the "Lee Arms" have been found, 
varying but little, however, from each other, but the following 
appear the most reliable: "Gules a fess Chequy ; an Aziere be- 
tween seven billets in chief, and six in point Argent." Another, 
"a shield, bend sinister, battled and embattled." Crest, 
"Trunk of a tree, vert, with a squirrel, gules, sitting thereon, 
browsing on a nut branch, proper." Another, " A closed visor, 
surmounted by a squirrel, holding a nut, with the motto, '■^ Non 
incautiis futuri. " 

It may require an expert in "Heraldry" to explain the 
"arms," while the "crest" is less difficult of comprehension. 
Whether comprehended or not, their significance to the American 
Lees is not important. 

It is not positively understood that any one American family at 
the present time has an exclusive claim to the use of the "■ Lee 
Arms." If records could be correctly traced, there is little doubt 
but it would be found that the Lees of English origin emanated 
from the same source, viz. : from the followers of William the 
Conqueror in 1066. 

Richard Lee, third son of Launcelot Lee of Cotton, emigrated 
to America about the year 1641. This Richard is the ancestor of 
the Virginia Lees. 

The tradition and circumstances of our ancestor John, and 
Richard, both coming from Essex county, England, one emigrat- 
ing in 1634, the other in 1641, are the only reasons that can now 
be assumed that they were both of the same origin. 

A correspondent of one of our family in London, Rev. Frederic 
George Lee, a distinguished clergyman of the Church of Eng- 
land, has interested himself in our efforts to obtain something 
authentic as to the birthplace of our ancestor, and has kindly 
furnished us with many interesting fa^:ts as to the family name in 
England. He has in his possession (1877) upon parchment, in 
Latin, the pedigree of his own family from a very early period 



22 INTRODUCTION. 

down to 1629. This can be found in the Londo7i Ge?iealogist, 
April, 1876, and is copied in this work from one sent by the 
above named gentleman to Mr. William H. Lee of New York. 

Another distinguished genealogist of London, Col. J. L. 
Chester, says that "in his opinion it will be found that our 
ancestor is of a Shropshire branch of the name, which dates back 
to the 14th century in the time of Edward III," and noted in 
printed records as "of Lee Hall in the parish of Wibenbury, in 
the County Palatine of Chester, whose ancestors have been there 
for ages."* The link wanting to connect our ancestor with the 
English family must be found — if found at all — in the years from 
1620 to 1634. 

That the lineage of our ancestor, is yet, somewhere a matter 
of record, is scarcely to be doubted, but ivJierc to be found is a 
question not easily answered. 

The uncertainties of such researches are best expressed in the 
words of Mr. Albert Welles, President of the "American College 
of Heraldry," in his introduction to the Welles Genealogy, and is 
as follows : 

" Most of the emigrants fled from religious persecution, and instead 
of promulgating their derivation or history, rather suppressed all 
knowledge of it, so that their descendants had no direct traditions. 
On this account it became necessary to give the descendants, >iepa- 
rately, of each of the original emigrants to this country, with a 
general account of the family abroad, as far as it can be learned from 
history, without trusting too much to tradition, which, however, 
is often the only source of information on these matters."

LEES OF NEW ENGLAND AND OTHER STATES. 



Among the early immigrants to the Colonies were several 
families by the name of Lee, Lea and Leigh — the same name but 
spelled in different ways. No connection, as far as learned, has 
been established among these families, except from inference, as 
coming from the same locality in England. 

I. John Lee, who came from Essex Co. 1634, settled first in 
1634 Cambridge, came to Hartford 1635, and to Farmington 

1641. 

II. John Leigh (Lee) — "A younger son of an ancient and hon- 

orable family of Burton St., London," described as a 
"person of good abilities in the bloom of life" — came to 
Mass. and settled at Agawam, or Ipswich, in Essex Co. 
His name is first found on the Colonial records, April i, 
1634. He died 1671. " His two sons, John and Joseph, 
by agreement, began in 1677 to spell their name Lcc.'" 
^ ^'^ A branch of this family settled at Barre, Mass. Gideon 
Lee, a former mayor of New York, was a member of this 
family. 

The genealogy of the family, containing records of 1,224 
descendants, compiled by Dr. William Lee, M. D., of 
Washington, D. C. (deceased Feb. 1893), was published 
in 1888. 

HI. Thomas Lee, left England with his family, consisting of 
his wife, several daughters and one son, Thomas, in 
1641. "He died on the passage, of small-pox, and was 
buried at sea." The family settled at Saybrook, Conn., 
and from the son Thomas are descended the Lees of

INTRODUCTION. 27 

Saybrook, Lyme, Guilford and other towns. In 185 1 a 
pamphlet of twenty-one pages, with an appendix, was 
published, compiled from information furnished by Hon. 
Martin Lee of Granville, N. Y. , purporting to be a his- 
tory of the family. In his preliminary remarks the 
compiler says, "In the year 1641, Thomas Lee, the 
ancestor of all the Lees in this country, sailed for the 
United Stales.'' The descendants of this numerous and 
respectable family ignore such pretensions at the 
present day. 

IV. Richard Lee, of Virginia, 1641. See further notes. 
1641 

V. Thomas Lee, came in 1642 and settled at Ipswich, Mass. 
1642 Records furnish little information. 

VL Henry Lee, came in 1650 — said to have come from Ches- 
hire, Eng. — was in Boston in 1655. "Henry Lee is 
admitted an inhabitant (of Boston) on his good behavior, 
and Capt. Davenport is engaged to save the town any 
expense that may arise from his family." Eventually 
settled at Manchester, Mass., where he died, 1675. 
Inventor}^, ^144 ; debts, ^28. 



1650 



VII. Walter Lee, appears on the town records at Westfield, 
Mass. as early as 1660. The name continues on record 
for more than a century at Westfield and Northampton, 
and then disappears. He is supposed to have been the 
Walter Lee who was made a "Freeman" at Hartford, 
May, 1654. 



1654 



VIII. William Lee, New York. In the History of Westches- 

ter Co., New York, it is found that he came from 
Nottingham, Eng., in 1675, and his descendants settled 
'■^ on Long Island and New Jersey. They claim descent 
from the Lees of Lee Magna, Kent, Eng. 

IX. Samuel Lee, of Swansea, Mass., came from Warwickshire, 

Eng. in 1692, built a house near Lees River. — Further 
1692 notice of the family may be found in the New England 

Historical and Genealogical Register. 



28 INTRODUCTION. 

X. Thomas Lee, of Boston. The name appears about 1700. 

This is a well known family of Boston, Cambridge and 
other towns, prominent with other families with whom 
its members have intermarried. The christian name of 
1700 ^j^g £j.g^ American ancestor seems not to have been 
positively settled. A bronze statue of Thomas Lee may 
be seen in Boston, but its significance has not been 
ascertained. 

XI. Thomas and Benjamin Lee, of Boston, 1765, and Lancas- 
1765 ter, Mass, 1797. No particulars of this family. 

XII. William Lee, of Norwalk, Conn. This is a highly 

respected family whose ancestor is believed to have been 
William, but at what time he came to America is un- 
known. The descendants appear to have made their 
way up the western part of the State, and were prevalent 
in Ridgfield and Redding in the early part of the last 
century, some of them purchasing land of the Indians. 
Still later they appeared in Salisbury. Joseph Lee 
and wife Mary, and Joseph Jr. and wife Mary, were ad- 
mitted to the church of Rev. Jonathan Lee by letter 
from Redding, in Dec. 1747. 



VIRGINIA Lees. 

It has often been asserted that the Lees of Farmington and 
those of Virginia were of the same English origin, and there has 
long been a standing tradition to that effect. 

That both families came from Essex county, England, is clear, 
and their common origin is by no means impossible, but there 
is no satisfactory documentary evidence to show a family 
connection. 

In 1640-1, Richard Lee, son of Sir Robert Lee, came out to 
Virginia as secretary to the colonial governor, Lord Fairfax, and 
finally settled at York, on James river in 1647. He was among 
the pioneers of the Lees of Virginia, and, as he wrote in his will, 
" late of Stafford-Langton, county of Essex, England, and of the 
Lee family Cotton near " Bridgeworth," the seat of Launcelot 
Lee. There were different motives in the emigrants leaving for 
Virginia and those settling in New England. 

The New England pilgrims were Puritans and Non-Con- 
formists, who came for the purpose of seeking religious liberty 
and freedom. The Virginia Lees were churchmen and adherents 
of the Stuarts, and Richard Lee came out under a commission 
from the crown. 

Of the pilgrims leaving home, a great majority were males and 
but few past the meridian of life. They had endured suffering 
and persecution in the wars of Charles I. and the severity of 
Laud, Archbishop of Canterbury, in his hatred of heretics. 
Essex county, and especially Colchester, was the stronghold of 
dissenters from the days of Wickliffe and particularly so in the 
sixteenth century. 

In a publication called " King and Commonwealth" (London 
1875) there is given much that is new from the archives of 



30 INTRODUCTION. 

recently discovered evidence. Especially does it show that in 
the wars of that eventful period the three religious bodies, viz. : 
Churchmen, Presbyterians and Independents, were the distinctive 
divisions in the thirty years conflict and not the Royalists as 
against those in rebellion to the Crown. 

In the above memoranda and considerations as here set forth, 
it is designed only to put into this work something sitggcs/ivr, as 
the result of rcscarclics made, hoping that it may be put into better 
shape by abler hands, and perhaps stimulate others interested in 
the name, to endeavor to find evidence of their origin, and so 
to trace the connection, if any, of the different settlers of that 
name and period. 

In all genealogical researches, extending back to the time of 
the settlement of New England, there is much that can be only 
conjecture. The parish records of England in the wars were 
imperfect and often destroyed by contending parties, and in the 
thirty years' war a whole generation passed away and another, 
nursed in strife and warfare, assumed their places. Very few of 
the original settlers were possessed of much or any property, and 
had but little to expect of those whom they left behind ; so that 
of those who became eminent in this country, like Washington, 
Adams or Jefferson, very little is known of their English parent- 
age or history. 

The Lees, from the time of the Norman conquest have been 
distinguished in their various callings ; and we have perhaps as 
satisfactory an account of our English ancestors as almost any 
family emigrating as early as 1634. 

When John Lee left his home for the new world, the city of 
London was a city of renown and commerce, with a population 
of but 500,000. Manchester numbered but 5,000, and other 
cities of England, now renowned for manufactures and com- 
merce, maintained but a proportionate population. Few of the 
streets of London were paved and those only with small cobble 
stones. Coaches had but just come into use as common vehicles 
of conveyance. 

Education, sufficient to read and write, was the exception with 
the common people, and not the rule. In judging of the men of 
those days, we are to take into account the condition of society 
at that time, the manners and customs of the people, and the 
want of advantages common to all at that time. Then we can 
better appreciate the character of our forefathers. 

There are other families, bearing the: name, equally entitled to 
recognition, but it is the design of this work to publish the 



INTRODUCTION. 31 

records of the Farmington Lees only. So numerous are the 
descendants of the different families, that there are thousands 
who are unable to trace their origin to any family, and the per- 
centage of those who take an interest in the subject is quite 
insignificant. 

The many Irish Lees whom the writer has consulted, almost 
uniformly claim to be of English origin, whose ancestors migrated 
to Ireland at some previous date, and many respectable families 
still residing there make the same claim. 

It is not assumed that the above statements are all positively 
correct, but only in accordance with such information as we have 
been able to obtain. 

The name is also quite common in the Canadas, New Bruns- 
wick and other British Provinces, mostly descended from New 
England Loyalists, who emigrated from the United States during, 
or soon after the Revolutionary war. Among these might be 
named the descendants of Dr. Ebenezer Lee of our own Farm- 
ington family, who migrated to Canada West in the latter part 
of the last century. The Canadian subjects of his descendants 
are noted for loyalty to their own government, many of them 
holding honorable positions of trust. 



William Westwood. 

Our interest in William Westwood arises from the fact of his 
guardianship over our common ancestor, John Lee, from the 
time of his immigration to this country, at the age of 13, to his 
majority, at the age of 21, and the supposed relationship existing 
between them. 

William Westwood was born in Essex county, in the eastern 
part of England, in 1606. Nothing is known of his early life till 
his appearance at Cambridge, then called Newtown, about 1632. 
He is supposed to have come with a company from Braintree in 
Essex county, England, as the records of Cambridge show. 

In various records he is named as "Yeoman," a title next to 
nobility. He was p)ossessed of a landed estate, and either left it 
to come to America, or inherited it afterwards, as appears by his 
appointment of an agent, with power of attorney, to take charge 
of it. 

Our information is gleaned entirely from the meager public 
records, many of which are in such a defaced and mutilated con- 
dition as to require skill and patience to decipher. 

Savage, an his Genealogical Notes, says, "He may have been 
there as early as 1632," and the records of Cambridge, though 
very imperfect, seem to confirm it. In an " agreement concern- 
ing the division of common pales," (fences for a common field,) 
William Westwoode was "directed to build 30 rods," and 
" Stephen Hart, to build 8 rods," and others to build their shares. 
Dated " 2gth of " (torn off, but previous to Dec. 24, 1633.) " The 
5th August, 1633. Lots granted for cow yards : William West- 
woode i acre, Stephen Hart J^ acre," and others. "Common 
pales about the neck of land," William Westwoode was to "build 
30, to be made with sufficient posts and rails, and not with 
crotches." Of the "planting field," Westwood had 27 acres. 
"The inhabitants, most of tliem, are ver\- rich, antl Wfll stored 



INTRODUCTION. 33 

with cattle of all sortes," (1633.) He appears to have been 
appointed to serve on various committees and to have been one 
of the leading citizens. 

"The 3d of Feb. 1634, at a general meeting of the whole 
Towne, it was agreed upon by a jointe consent that 7 men should 
be chosen to do the whole business of the Towne, and so con- 
tinue until the first Monday in November next, and until new be 
chosen in their room. So there was elected John Hayes, Mr. 
Lyman Bradstreet, William Westwoode" and others. 

This date, " Feb. 3d, 1634," niight at first seem to preclude the 
idea that he sailed, with his family, from Ipswich in England, 
April 10, 1634, but we have official evidence of both facts. Savage 
remarks that, "As being a man of good estate, he had made the 
exploration here before bringing out his family, which, in the 
early days of the colony, was judicious." 

Having been a prominent citizen of the colony, a temporary 
absence to bring out his family would not necessarily preclude 
his being chosen in his absence. 



EMIGRANTS FROM ENGLAND. 

Captains of vessels engaged in transporting passengers were 
obliged to furnisli bonds for faithful performance of duty, and 
upon return of the vessel, with proper evidence of such duty 
performed, were entitled to a return of their bonds. 

The following is a copy of a petition found on the records of 
the British Custom house at Ipswich Eng. , and will explain 
itself :

34 INTRODUCTION. 

In the list of names accompanying this petition is found 
William Westwoode, Bridgett, his wife, John Lea, Grace Newell. 
In a "note of names and ages of all the Passengers w'^'^ tooke 
shipping in the Francis of Ipswich, Ma"" John Cuttinge, bound for 
Newe England, last of April, 1634" were "forty-four adults, who 
tooke the oath of Allegiance and Supremacy at his Maj^''^^ Customs 
house in Ipswich, before us, his Majti^s Officers, according to the 
order of the Lords, and others of his Majt'^'s j^i^ost Hon^'^s Privy 
Council. Dated 12 Nov^f 1634." 

In this list are the names of William Westwoode, age 28, and 
Bridgett Westwoode, aged 32. 

In a list of those who did not take the oath, being under age 
(forty minors), were the names of John Lee, aged 13 and Grace 
Newell, aged 13-wards of Westwoode. The date of their arrival 
has never been ascertained. 

His duties as one of the " seven townsmen " appear to have 
been assumed on his return to the Colony. Extracts from the 
records of Cambridge: "It is further ordered by joint consent 
(that) whatsoever the Townsmen shall do in the compas of their 
time, shall stand as if the whole town did the same for making of 
new orders or altering of old ones." "Further it is ordered that 
whatsoever person they shall send for to help in any business, and 
he shall refuse to come, they shall have power to lay a fine on 
him and gather it." 

Feb. 8, 1635. In a division of ground, Westwoode receives 
five acres and Stephen Hart two. His residence at that time was 
at the southwest corner of Holyoke and Winthrop streets. He 
also owned land which is now occupied as part of Harvard Col- 
lege Grounds, and was forfeited by his removal. 

About this time, attention was attracted to the fertile meadows 
of the Connecticut valley, and parties were organized for settle- 
ments. Just at what date Westwood appeared at Hartford, we 
have no means of knowing, as records are missing, or are imper- 
fect, and dates conflicting. 

Two parties came out from Newtown the same season (1635), 
one in June, the other in October. On the 4th day of March, 
1635, he took the "Freeman's oath" at Newtown in the Colony 
of Massachusetts Bay, and on the 5th of September was a sworn 
constable of the "Plantation of Connecticut," "till some one 
was chosen in his place." This was the executive ofSce of the 
colony, and a position of great importance. On the 3d of March 
following he was made one of a "commission to govern the 
people at Connecticut." The first "General Court" of six 
members was held April 26, 1636, and, as there were no written 



INTRODUCTION. 35 

Statutes, this body acted both as a court and legislature, and was 
clothed with great powers. The people were governed largely 
by church or Mosaic laws. i..i3'134.5 

In 1637, he was one of the court which declared war against 
the Pequot Indians, and was one of a special "committee to 
hasten military preparations." He was a town "selectman" 
from time to time; in 1638, was one of a "committee to lay out 
a road on the upland from Hartford to Windsor." 

It was supposed the church records would furnish some items 
of interest concerning him, but, previous to 1685, they are 
entirely missing, audit is "impossible to determine who were in 
Hartford previous to the arrival of the Hooker party in October 
or November, 1635, except William Westwood and John Steele." 

"He was a man of note and prominent influence, both in 
ecclesiastical and civil affairs, with more than ordinary posses- 
sions for the day, and honored often with offices of trust, — was 
deputy for Hartford from 1642 to 1656 inclusive, except 1645, and 
a frequent juror. In 1653 he was one of a commission of three, 
to advise about impressing men for the present expedition against 
the Indians — 65 men to be ready, with provisions and ammunition 
at one days' notice. " 

He was one of the first proprietors and large land owners of 
Hartford, standing fourth on the list. It is evident, however, that 
he invested but a portion of his means there, as his estate in 
England had not been disposed of at the time of his death. His 
home lot consisted of three acres, being one of the largest on 
the town plot, and located on the west side of what is now Front 
street, on the river bank near the foot of Morgan street — now 
occupied by business houses, and crossed by a railroad. The lot 
of Stephen Hart, the subsequent father-in-law of John Lee, 
joined it on the north. 

Most of the settlers were members of the church of which Rev. 
Thomas Hooker was pastor, and many of these had been attend- 
ants of his ministry in Braintree, Eng., and among them. West- 
wood. Mr. Hooker died in 1649. His grave may be seen in the 
ancient cemetery, in the rear of the First church on Main street, 
Hartford. The name of William Westwood may also be found 
on a public monument in the cemetery as one of the first settlers. 

After the death of Mr. Hooker church controversies arose 
which increased from year to year, with much bitterness, and 
became so deeply involved with outside matters, that it was diffi- 
cult to determine the first cause of the dissension. The troubles 
also extended to the churches at Windsor and Wethersfield. To 



36 INTRODUCTION. 

such an extent were these controversies carried, that sixty mem- 
bers from the three churches, who considered themselves ag- 
grieved, determined to withdraw and found an independent 
colony beyond the jurisdiction of Connecticut, and the present 
site of Hadley, Mass., was selected for the town. Among those 
who withdrew was William Westwood. " At a meeting held at 
Goodman Ward's house in Hartford, April i8, 1659, William 
Westwood ( and four others ) were chosen by the whole company 
of 59, to go up to the aforesaid Plantation and lay the number 
of 59 home lots, and to allow 8 acres for each home lot, and have 
a street 20 rods broad betwixt the two westernmost rows of lots, 
and to divide the said home lots into quarters by highways. " 

On the 9th of Nov. 1659, those who remained at Hartford 
chose the same committee, "to order all public occasions that 
concern the good of the plantation for the ensuing year. " 

Thus, after having been one of the pioneers of Hartford, and 
a resident for 24 years, we find him forsaking his old home, to 
become a pioneer at Hadley. 

A home lot of 15 acres was assigned to him, on the east side 
of the west street, a few rods from the south end of the row, and 
may be easily designated at the present time — this lot, besides 
meadow land. 

He at once assumed a prominent position in public affairs, — was 
frequently chosen Selectman — was given the title of "Master," 
or "Mr. " — a title of distinction, at that time. May 22, 1661, by 
order of the General Court of Massachusetts Bay, a commission 
was appointed "for the better government of the people, and sup- 
pressing of sins, and yt Wm. Westwood is hereby authorized to 
joyne persons in marriage at Hadley. " 

His family consisted of his wife and one daughter, born at 
Hartford, 1644, who married Aaron Cook, Jr., May 30, 1661, 
eight days after the date of her father's commission "to joyne 
persons in marriage at Hadley." Hence, it requires but a little 
stretch of the imagination to conceive that he performed the 
marriage ceremony. 

After ten years of active life at Hadley, he died April 8, 1669, 
aged 63. His wife died May 12, 1676, aged 74. It is probable 
that they were buried on the knoll in the west part of the Hadley 
cemetery, as that part contains all the early graves, but several 
hours' diHgent search by the writer in 1890, and again in 1892, 
failed to discover their graves. Hence, it is assumed that no 
headstones were erected, or, if erected, have long since 
disappeared. 



INTRODUCTION. 37 

As in Hartford, so in Hadley, he was one of the most active 
supporters of the church, and his reHgious principles were ever 
his rule of action. 

"The preceding sketch shows the character of the man under 
whose care our ancestor was placed, and we may infer what John 
Lee was from the prominent characteristics of his posterity as 
we shall see them in these pages, being earnest and efficient 
supporters of religious institutions. Farther researches may bring 
to light his early history, his parentage and home, but it is 
pleasant to know that our ancestor was associated with the true 
and good men who laid the foundation of one of the most thriving 
and pleasant towns in Connecticut, and which has sent out to 
bless the land her portion of distinguished and reliable men in 
the various departments of life. By patient industry on a farm, 
he acquired a handsome property for those days ; professed the 
religion of the gospel ; presented his children in baptism, and 
made himself useful in the sphere of life in which God, in His 
providence, had placed him. His descendants, numerous and 
widely scattered, have been distinguished for enterprise, industry, 
liberality and success in business ; respect for the laws, and 
readiness to bear their portion of the burdens of societ}-, civil 
and religious." — '■'John Lee and His Descendants,'' by Miss Sarah 
Marsh Lee.

COOK, Hadley, Mass. 

Sarah, dau. of William Westwood, and his wife Bridget D., 
b. at Hartford 1644, m. at Hadley, Mass., May 30, 1661, Aaron 
Cook, Jun , b. at Windsor, Conn., 1641 — son of Maj. Aaron 
Cook of Northampton, Mass, 

(He came from England about 1630 and located at Dorchester, 



4-2 INTRODUCTION. 

near Boston — about 1635, removed to Windsor, Conn, where he 
became prominent in local affairs, and was chosen captain of the 
train band. He removed with the Hadley Co. in 1659, but 
settled at Northampton — was chosen Selectman and Justice of 
the Peace, also acquired the title of Major, the highest military 
rank held by the Colonial militia, at that time. He died in Sept. 
i6go. His monument may be seen in the eastern part of

After their marriage the young couple took up their abode at 
the Westwood homestead at Hadley, on the east side of West 
street, which they continued to occupy ever after. He became 
prominent in local affairs — was Selectman 1666-71-74-76-78-80- 
82-84-go and 92. In 1674 he is named as Ensign, and as Captain 
in 1680, and held the latter office thirty-five years — was also 
Justice of the Peace many years. He inherited valuable lands 
and other property by will of his father-in-law. His wife 
inherited lands at Hartford. In the west part of the Hadley 
cemetery may be seen the tombstones of the couple side by side, 
containing the following inscriptions : 

"In memory of "In memory of

Deacon Stephen Hart. 

Deacon Stephen Hart, father of our ancestral mother — Mary 
Hart Lee — is supposed, from good authority, to have been born at 
Braintree, Essex Co., Eng., in 1606. Of his EngHsh history or 
parentage, we have no account. It is probable that he came to 
this country as early as 1630-31, and located first at Braintree, 
Mass., and subsequently removed to Cambridge, then called 
Newtowne. It is also probable that one Edmund Hart, who 
came out at, or about the same time, was a brother of Stephen — 
both were "made Freemen" on the same day at Cambridge, 
May 14, 1634. 

The name of Stephen Hart is found on record in connection 
with Wm. Westwood and others, in regard to building a fence to 
enclose a common field at Cambridge, as early as 1632, and he is 
also represented as one of the first 54 settlers of the town. His 
name is also found in the allotment of ground for cow yards in 
which Westwood is granted one acre and Hart half an acre, and 
others various amounts. On another occasion Westwood receives 
5 acres and Hart 3. For building "Common Pales," (fence 
enclosing field ) Westwood was to build 30 rods and Hart 8 rods, 
all of which indicates that Westwood had invested in the common 
stock, a much greater amount than Hart. 

The fertile lands in the Connecticut Valley had begun to attract 
attention, and in the summer of 1635, he went through the wilder- 
ness to Hartford with the Rev. Thomas Hooker's party, including 
Westwood and wife, John Lee and Grace Newell, inmates of 
Westwood's family. 

It is stated, and apparently on good authority, that he was an 
attendant on the ministry of Mr. Hooker of Braintree, Eng., and 
it is a well known fact that he was one of Mr. Hooker's deacons

at Cambridge and again at Hartford. The church records at 
Hartford previous to 1682 are missing, and consequently many 
interesting items of early church history are lost. 

At Hartford, the records show him to have been one of the 
original proprietors, and a home lot was assigned him on the river 
bank, on what is now Front street and a little north of the present 
foot of Morgan street, and may be easily located at the present 
day. Westwood's lot was about one-half larger and joined it on 
the south. From the fact of finding their names frequently asso- 
ciated, located on adjoining lots, attending the same church, 
about the same age, and coming from the same vicinity in Eng- 
land, we may infer that they were particular friends. 

It is stated on good authority that Hart joined the expedition 
against the Pequots under Capt. Mason's command in 1637, and his 
name may be found in a list of names in the " Memorial History 
of Hartford County," vol. i, p. 50. 

In 1640 he joined a party of a few others in the settlement of 
Farmington. Tradition informs us, that he with others were on 
a hunting excursion on Talcott Mountain and discovered the 
Tunxis Valley (since known as Farmington) then occupied by 
the powerful Tunxis tribe of Indians. It was a beautiful valley, 
and partially cleared, and the prolific crops revealed the fertility 
of the soil. The country was coveted by the hunters, but there 
is no evidence that they resorted to any unfair means to wrest it 
from the Indians. As soon as arrangements could be effected, a 
purchase was made and the settlement commenced. Outbreaks 
did, however, often occur and a few years later the house of one of 
Deacon Hart's sons was attacked in the dead of night, and burned, 
and every member of the family perished, except one son, a lad 
of II years, who was absent from home. 

Dea. Hart is said to have been the leading man of the settle- 
ment. The settlers still retained their connection with Hartford, 
attended church there and perhaps wintered there. 

About 1645 the town was incorporated by the name of Farm- 
ington. The township was laid out 15 miles square, the proprie- 
tors being 84 in number, of whom he was one. When the church 
was organized Oct. 13, 1652, there were appointed 7 deacons, 
who were designated as the "7 pillars of the church," of which 
he was named as the first, and no man was more influential or 
active, either in the church or settlement than Dea. Hart. 

He was one of the first representatives of the town in 1647, an 
office which he held continuously for 15 sessions (two sessions a 
year) with but one omission — and again in 1660. 



4-6 INTRODUCTION. 

He purchased of the Indians a large tract of land three miles 
north of Farmington in the present town of Avon and, for 150 
years, known as Hart's farm. His house lot was located on the 
west side of Main street opposite the meeting-house, and was 
four or five times as large as any other town lot, consisting of 15 
acres, extending from what was known as Mill Lane on the north, 
to the present stone store on the south, and from Main street, west 
to the river. The south part of this lot he gave to his son John, 
and the north part to his son Thomas. A part of the lot eventually 
came into the possession of John Lee and became his homestead, 
and may be easily located at the present time as the site of the 
Misses Porter's noted school for girls. 

In 1653 Dea. Hart was appointed by the General Court as one 
of a Commission to aid the constable in impressing men into the 
service for an expedition against the Indians. At this time John 
Lee was 33 years of age and it would be a subject of interest to 
learn if he joined the expedition, but unfortunately the names 
were not preserved. 

Dea. Hart was first married in England, and several of his 
children were born there. His wife died, when he married Mar- 
garet, widow of Arthur Smith. Dates are wanting. His son 
Stephen died Aug. ig, i68g, as may be seen on a rough head- 
stone a few yards east of the monument of John Lee, on which is 
the following inscription : 

"S. H. Dec'sd 2E r>'>. 19: 9: 1089." 

' ' Stephen Hart deceased Sept. 19, i68g. " Probate records confirm 
this. Deacon Hart died in March between the i6th and 31, 1683, 
aged 77. His will is dated March 16, in which he says "being 
weak in body, etc," and his inventory is presented in court the 
31st. After mentioning what he had given to his sons John, 
Stephen and Thomas, he gives to his grandson Thomas Porter, 
and son-in-law John Cole, his plow land and meadow swamp, 
"their agreement to my beloved wife being fulfilled."

The Harts are a numerous family and their genealogy was

Deacon Thomas Judd. 



As THERE were many intermarriages between the Lee and Judd 
families, it seems but proper to devote a few lines to a sketch of 
the Judd ancestral line. 

Deacon Thomas Judd crossed the ocean about 1633, and 
settled at Newtowne (now Cambridge), near Boston, where land 
was granted him in 1634. In 1636 he removed to Hartford. His 
home lot may be found on the map of ancient Hartford (1640), 
adjoining on the south, the Wyllis lot of Charter Oak notoriety. 

Here he lived till 1644, when he removed to Farmington, and 
at once took a prominent place in the community. He was 
chosen second deacon of the church — Stephen Hart being the 
first — The seven deacons were st3'led the "Sc'rr;/ Pillars of the 
CJiiirch.'" He and several of his sons were among the "eighty- 
four proprietors" of Farmington. His home lot was on the west 
side of Main street, the third from the north end of the street. 
He and his sons also seem to have owned several lots in various 
parts of the town. 

In 1646 he was chosen a representative to the General Court, 
and served 14 sessions. 

In 1679, after thirty-five years' residence at Farmington he 
removed to Northampton, Mass., and the same year, at the age 
of 71, married for his second wife, Mrs. Constance Mason, 
"a childless widow of good estate," — widow of Capt. Thomas 
Mason, with whom he lived nine years. 

In 1682, at the age of 74 years he was chosen one of the 
selectmen of the town. He died Nov. g, 1688.

52 INTRODUCTION. 



NOTE TO THE READER. 

[From Fikst Edition.] 

In numbering generations, John, the emigrant ancestor, is consid- 
ered the FIRST generation, his children the second generation, his 
grand children the third, and so on. Under every generation, 
except the first and second, are included parents and children ; but 
the number of the generations refers only to the children. The niim- 
bers prefixed to the names of children, and repeated in larger figures 
when the children become parents, are for the purpose of tracing a 
line of ancestors backward, and a line of descendants forward, and 
also for reference. 

John Lee had four sons who left posterity ; each one has been 
placed at the head of a branch, and his descendants, generation after 
generation, numbered separately, as being easier of reference than if 
all were numbered together. 

Of Mary, the eldest daughter of John, we are able to give only 
such records as have been furnished, and which will be found in their 
proper place. 

Tabitha, the youngest child of John, who married a Strong, and 
her descendants are so fully carried out in the "Strong History," 
that we have not thought it best to go farther than the fourth 
generation. 



On the supposition that the readers of "John Lee and His 
Descendants," by Sarah Marsh Lee, are familiar with her manner 
of presenting the several generations, and also, from the fact, that 
we have examined no work which we deemed preferable in general 
arrangement, we have endeavored to follow her style as closely as 
practicable. This work, however, being compiled by two individuals, 
viz : the John and Stephen branches by Sarah Fiske Lee of New 
Hampshire, and the other branches by the writer, with little oppor- 
tunity for comparing notes, will naturally differ in style in some 
trifling particulars, which the reader will easily comprehend. 

In mentioning places, when no State is named, they are to be 
understood as being in Connecticut, except large and well known 
cities, viz. : New York, Buffalo, New Orleans, etc. 

Few abbreviations have been used— b.-6o;'n — ui.-marricd — d.-dUd — 
deiU.-daiff/hfer—JE.-aged—^ indicates that the name is carried for- 
ward to the succeeding generation for further notice, with a paragraph 
of corresponding number. 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN LEE, 



FARMINGTON, CONN. 

1, John Lee, American ancestor of the Farmington family of 
the same name, was born in Essex county, England, and prob- 
ably in Colchester, in 1620, between April 10 and August 8. In 
the official shipping list of passengers sailing from Ipswich, April 
10, 1634, he is represented as 13 years of age. When he died 
August 8, i6go, his age was given as 70 years, consequently his 
fourteenth year must have been completed previous to August 8 
of 1634. 

Of his parentage, or the names of his parents, we have no 
records, but we know that the name was very common in Essex 
county among families of distinction. 

In a record kept by a great-grandson of his, Seth Lee, A. M. 
(21) a paper, evidently written for posterity, entitled, "Some 
Account of the Lees of Farmington," taken down about 1766, 
and continued to 1802, he says : 

"Mr. John Lee was sent by his father from Colchester, Eng- 
land, to America, among some of the first settlers, and his father 
told him he designed to come with his family afterward. How- 
ever, he never came, and John never heard, ('tis sayd,) much 
about him. This John was under age. He lived at Hartford, and 
when they began to settle Farmington he came here with the 
Rest, and was one of the eighty-four Proprietors to whom the 
large Tract of Land called Farmington was granted, as may be 
seen in the Records of the town, where, in the several Division 
Lots were layd out to him, the s'^ John Lee." 

Undisputable evidence of his arrival in this country under the 
guardianship of William Westwood may be found on another 
page, (Petition to Lordships, etc.) 

After spending one year with his guardian at Cambridge, 
Mass., he came with him to Hartford in 1635, where he spent his 
boyhood, perhaps a portion of his time under the tutorship of 



54 JOHN LEE 

Samuel Stone, the teacher of the day and assistant minister, who 
died in 1659. The school house is supposed to have been 
located a little south- of the present post office building, in 
Hartford. 

In 1641, the year following the first coming of the whites to 
Farmington, he joined their little band, and became one of the 
first eighty-four proprietors of the township. As he was but just 
21 at that time, it is probable that he had inherited property, or 
funds were furnished him by hjs guardian to contribute his share 
to the purchase of this tract of land from the Indians, fifteen 
miles square. The public records of Farmington, previous to 
1666, are missing. One account reports them as burned in Feb- 
ruary of that year, when the house of John Hart, brother of Mary 
Hart Lee, was attacked by the Indians and burned, and the whole 
family perished except one lad, who was absent. This would 
indicate that John Hart was town clerk. Another account 
reports some other cause for their destruction, but^ be the cause 
whatever it may have been, we have no access to them. 

It is a subject of record in the State archives, that "John Lee 
was sworn constable at a particular court at Hartford, March 4, 
1657," an officer of great importance at that date, being con- 
sidered as the *•' right arm of the law," and chief executive officer 
of the town. 

In 1658 he married Mary, daughter of Deacon Stephen Hart, 
first deacon, and " pillar of the church," (see article, Stephen 
Hart). It has long been current that she was born about 1635, 
but this is evidently an error, as her second brother, younger 
than herself, Stephen, Jr., was born in 1634, as shown by dates 
on his tombstone. Mary was probably born in 1630-31. She 
and her husband joined the church at Farmington, July 15, 1660. 

His home lot was located on the west side of the main street 
of Farmington, and may be designated now as the ground 
occupied by the noted ladies' school of the Misses Porter. 

The original town of Farmington belonging to the eighty-four 
proprietors, was fifteen miles square, including the present towns 
of Farmington, Southington, Bristol, Burlington, New Britain, 
Berlin and Kensington, in all of which land was assigned to him 
in the general division, consisting of many hundred acres. 

Remnants of these lands are still owned by his descendants in 
Southington, Bristol and New Britain, having never been sold 
out of the family during a period of 250 years. 

That portion of his life at Farmington, consisting of forty-nine 
years, was spent during a period when the whole community was

more or less harassed by fear of depredations of the Indians. 
Seldom did the settlers feel themselves perfectly safe, and as late 
as i6gi, a committee was appointed, of which John Lee, Jim. was 
one, to designate seven houses, to be fortified agamst attacks by 
the Indians. 

Our ancestor died Aug. 8, i6go (old style), and was buried in 
the old cemetery at Farmington, and his grave was designated by 
the usual headstone of that day, but which in the course of time 
disappeared, no one of the present generation being able to 
account for it. A few years since, however, it was brought to 
light through the efforts of Rev. Samuel Lee of New Ipswich, 
N. H. — it having sunken into the soil out of sight. It is a coarse, 
unhewn slab, 20x29 inches in dimensions, the lettering being rough 
and jagged as the slab itself. 

William H. Lee of New York, a native of New Britain — with a 
generosity worthy the name he bore — had a beautiful monument 
erected in its place "executed in Glasgow, Scotland. It is of 
dark gray Scotch granite, highly polished, standing seventeen 
feet high, upon a base four feet square. The inscription on the 
old stone has been carefully reproduced on one side of the 
monument. The name JOHN LEE in large block letters on the 
base is surmounted by the die, upon which are the inscriptions, 
and above which is the main shaft of obelisk proportions."

JOHN LEE 




•'THE JOHN LEE MONUMENT," FARMINGTON, CONN. 



After the erection of the monument in 1876, the old headstone 
was deposited in New Britain with Lee Bros. & Co., merchants, 
in whose custody it remained till 1895. Deeming it insecure 
from fire, it was suggested by some of the kindred that it be 
returned to the cemetery. Accordingly, on August 24, 1895, 
having been provided with a suitable stone base, it was placed 
beside the monument, where it now rests. 

The vacant space of a few square yards, adjacent to the monu- 
ment on the north, is presumed to contain the remains of his two 
sons, John and Thomas, and perhaps of other kindred, but no 
headstones have been found, though the ground has been thor- 
oughly probed. 

" His homestead, after his death," so says Deacon Seth Lee in 
his manuscript, "was inherited by his son John, (2), who lived 
there during his life, when it descended to Hezekiah, {13), 
youngest son of John, (2). Hezekiah then sold the Lee House, 
about 1750-60, to Elijah Cowles, who now occupies it, (about 
1766,) removing with his family to Goshen, Litchfield county, 
where he died in 1762." 



AND DESCENDANTS. 57 

"Mary, his widow, married January 5, 1692, Jedediah Strong, 
son of Elder John Strong of Northampton, Mass., to which 
place she removed, taking with her the two }'ounger children. 
She was the third wife of Jedediah Strong. He was born May 7, 
1637. The following account of her death may be found in the 
records of Northampton : 

Jedediah Strong and wife " set out early in the morning to 
visit their children at Coventry, ( Ct. ) but when they came 
against the Falls at South Hadley among the broad smooth 
stones, the horses feet slipped up, and he fell flat on the off side, 
and by the fall killed the woman, tho' she was not quite dead 
then, but had life in her till next day, yet never spoke a word." 
(October g, 1710). Died October 10, 1710. It is reasonable to 
presume that she was buried in the Northampton cemetery, but 
several hours spent by the writer in the ancient part of the ceme- 
tery in 1 891, and another thorough search a couple of years later, 
failed to reveal it. If a headstone was erected it has probably 
disappeared, as did that of her husband in Farmington. 

Her husband went to reside with those children, and died at 
Coventry, May 22, 1733.

" The question of his nativity being settled, there remain the 
two following queries, of great interest to us all, and which, if 
solved, will give new matter to whoever may undertake to com- 
plete this imperfect genealogy. 

^' First, John (i) was a ward of the West woods, and lived with 
them until he removed to Farmington. The circumstances all go 
to show that his relations were those of consanguinity ; but this 
can only be called inferential, and not now susceptible of proof. 

Second, Who were his parents and family, and what relation 
did he bear to those of his name, who emigrated from Essex Co. 
about the same period of time, and of whom brief mention is 
made in this work?" — Sarah M. Lee. 

These queries are still unsolved.

AUGUST 24, 17G2. 

In the name op God. Amen. 

The last Will and Testament of Hezekiah Lee, of Harwinton, 
Litclilield County, Colony of Connecticut, in New England. 

1, Hezekiah Lee, being under indisposition of body, but in sound 
mind and memory, and sensible of my own mortality, do make this, 
my last Will and Testament, that is to say : 



FOURTH GENERATION. 63 

ImprimiH. I do give iiiy soul to God, who gave it, and my body 
to the earth, to be decently buried by Christian friends, not doubting 
of the resurrection of it at the last day. 

And as touching such worldly estate as God has blessed uie with, 
I dispose of the same in manner following : 

First. I do give to my well-beloved wife, Sai*ah Lee, one-third part 
of my moveable estate, to be hers and at her disposal forever. I give 
her also the benefit and improvement of one-third part of my land in 
Harwinton, with the use also of one-third part of the buildings 
thereon dui'ing her natural life. 

Secondly. I give to my son Hezekiah all my lands lying in the 
township of New Hartford, to be his and his heirs forever. I give him 
also one-fourth part of my books, my great Bible excepted— my wife 
being to have one-fourth part in her thirds of the moveables. 

Thirdly. Having given already to my daughter Sarah, who is now 
deceased, all that portion that I designed to give her, which I suppose 
to have amounted to four hundred i^ounds, old tenor, I therefore pro- 
ceed and say : I give to my daughter Mary Williams, thirty pounds 
in bills of public credit in Connecticut, besides what I have already 
given her ; also one fourth part of my books, my Bible excepted. 

Fourthly, I give to my son Samuel, the remainder of my land in 
Harw:inton, and the buildings also ; and the whole thereof after my 
wife's decease, to be his and his heirs forever. I give him also my 
great Bible and all the remaining part of my moveables. 

And now having lands in Goshen with buildings thereon, not yet 
disposed of, my will is that the executors of this, my Will, do sell the 
same and therewith pay my lawful debts ; and if there be money left 
of the sale after my debts are paid, my will is, that it be laid out to 
purchase land in Harwinton, for my son Samuel, so as to make him 
have one hundred acres in Harwinton, if sufficient to purchase so 
much : and if there should afterwards be any money left, to be in the 
hands of the executors to dispose of as they shall think fit. 

Having, also, lands in Farmington, not disposed of in this, my Will, 
I give it into the hands and power of the executors to dispose of as 
they shall think may be best. 

Moreover, I do constitute and appoint my well-beloved wife Sarah, 
and my son Samuel, executors of this, my last Will and Testament, 
hereby revoking all and other Wills and Testaments, declaring them 
null and void, and jironounce this to be my last Will and Testament, 
made and dated in Harwinton, the fourth day of July, A. D. 17G2.

Jonathan Marsh, of Norwich, born July 27, 1749. She

skillful in his profession, and had an extensive practice. He 
possessed great muscular strength and agility — it has been said 
he once lifted a new cart, with nine of the heaviest men of the 
town in it, by placing himself under the axle — he would hop forty 
feet at three bounds and throw a stone a good distance with the 
precision of the ancient slingers. He entered with great zeal 
into the national struggle for independence ; was appointed one 
of the examining committee on the qualifications of applicants for 
the "Post of Surgeon" in the army, and was himself in the ser- 
vice as surgeon on the Oliver Cromwell. While in the army 
he became intimately acquainted with Major General Charles 
Lee, the English officer, who served under Washington and had 
his head-quarters for a time at Hartford. His youngest son,

Capt. Lathrop was descended in a direct line from Rev. John 
Lathrop, pastor of the first Independent Church in England, who 
came to New England in 1634 ; was the first minister of the 
church at Scituate, Mass, and later at Barnstable. The grand- 
mother of Capt. John, was Mercy, daughter of Samuel Baker, of 
Barnstable, whose mother was Fear Robinson of Leyden. The 
mother of Capt. Lathrop was Sybil Backus, daughter of Rev. 
Samuel Whiting, the first minister of the Congregational Church, 
at Windham, a son of Rev. John Whiting of Hartford. Mrs. 
Whiting was the daughter of Rev. Wm. Adams of Dedham, 
Mass. ; her mother was Alice, daughter of Deputy Governor 
William Bradford, son of Governor Bradford of the May Flower ; 
so it can be truly said of him and his descendants that they have 
a good share of the best Puritan blood in New England.

ing his father. He was the patentee of the "Genuine Lee's 
Windham Bilious Pills, or Family Ph3'sic," an invention of his 
father's. He obtained a patent signed by Geo. Washington. 
This was the first medicine of the kind patented in this country, 
and to this day is extensively known and appreciated as one of 
the best compounds in use for bilious affections. Dr. Lee, like 
his father, was a generous, self-sacrificing man, honored in his 
profession ; securing the lasting good-will and friendship of all 
his acquaintance. He married March, 1794, Lucy, dau. of Dr. 
Thomas Gray of Windham. He died Dec. 23, 1814. His widow

79. Charles 5, youngest son of Dr. Samuel ■*, 30, was one of 
the first to institute genealogical research in our family, and a 
sketch of the life and character of him, to whom we are so largely 
indebted for this Memorial, will not be out of place. 

"His father died when he was fourteen years of age. After 
•spending a year or two at the 'Westfield Academy' in Massa- 
chusetts, residing with his uncle, Dr. Joshua Sumiler, he was 
placed in the store of Col. Tinker at Vernon, a leading business 
man in the eastern part of the State. He remained there, gain- 
ing a thorough knowledge of mercantile life, until he went into 
business for himself as a merchant in his native town. In 1822 
he commenced the manufacture of cotton yarn, in a mill built by 
himself on the Willimantic River, in what is now, 1878, the large 
and flourishing borough of Willimantic. He was the pioneer of 
manufacturing, and the founder of that pleasant village. 

"Rev. Dennis Piatt, of South Norwalk, in his 'Reminiscences 
of Deacon Lee,' says : 'When in the summer of 1827, I went to 
Willimantic, with a commission from the ' Home Missionary 
Society of Connecticut' to labor in that village, I found Deacon 
Lee earnestly engaged in his business of manufacturing, and lead- 
ing all the public improvements then going on. How he managed 
to superintend his large business, and yet preserve that settled 
calmness which was his prominent characteristic, was to me a 
matter of special wonder. Wlien the labors of the day were ended, 
he threw off all care, and was as genial in his family, and as socia- 



74 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN 2, 

ble with his neighbors, and as read}^ for the evening meeting — in 
which he always took part — as if he had nothing to trouble him ; 
indeed, so perfect was his self-command, that he could sleep at 
night, after a day's harassing business, as most men do who have 
nothing to think of but their daily tasks. He had a sound mind 
in a sound, health}' body, and was admirably fitted for the position 
he occupied as leading manufacturer and prominent member of 
society. At this time he was an active member and also Deacon 
of the Congregational church at Windham ; his services there 
were much needed and highly appreciated ; he had his horses and 
carriage and could take his family the three-and-a-half miles with 
little inconvenience; but he saw the wants of the people around 
him, and felt the necessity of religious ordinances at Willimantic, 
not only for his own people, but also for those belonging to the 
other manufactories that had sprung up around him. Without a 
moment's hesitation, he threw his whole energies into the work, 
and never faltered or grew discouraged until the thing was ac- 
complished. There was at that time no 'meeting house' in the 
place ; no organized church of any denomination, not even a 
Sabbath-School, but there were two School-houses open to 
religious services. 

"Arrangements were made for using these on alternate Sab- 
baths; a congregation was soon gathered, and after a few months 
a Congregational church was organized, of which Deacon Lee 
was the first deacon. 

"Then it was proposed to build a house of worship. Deacon 
Lee gave the land, adding a generous subscription, and by his 
persevering, earnest efforts, the work was accomplished. The 
result of these two years of labor, and of self-sacrifice, was a 
church of fifty members, a flourishing Sabbath-School, and a 
large congregation. Deacon Lee has gone to his rest. If he 
looks back from the 'blessed shore' to review the history of his 
labors, he must see that his two years of labor in founding the 
church at Willimantic were the most productive of his life." 

The prostration in the manufacturing business, consequent 
upon the financial crisis of 1829, led him to abandon the business 
in which he was engaged at Willimantic, and remove to Norwich 
in the spring of 1831. He was first, book-keeper for the firm of 
Oilman & Ripley, Druggists, and later, secretary of the "Chel- 
sea Manufacturing Co., " whose paper works were at Greenville, 
continuing in that office until about three years before his death, 
when the corporation ceased to exist. In 1842 the firm of Lee & 
Osgood, Druggists, was formed, of which he was senior partner.

While in this business they manufactured the famous Windham 
Pills, of which Dr. Samuel was the inventor. This cut of the 
label used for the boxes of pills may be of interest. 



BMdusPnls'o^Ia^ly Physic, 

PR£P/\REO BY CHARLES LEE. 



" As a business man Deacon Lee was upright, straightforward, 
and honest; very methodical and precise, with a clear head, and 
most excellent judgment. " An infirmity in his hearing debarred 
him from taking part in public gatherings, but he was very warmly 
interested in all that pertained to the welfare of the nation or the 
general good of society; exercising in his earnest, quiet way, an 
influence that was felt by all around him. As a friend and neigh- 
bor he was warm-hearted and sincere ; his genial manners, and 
unobtrusive kindness of heart, made those his strongest friends 
who knew him best. As a Christian, he was revered and honored 
in all the churches with which he was connected. 

At an early age he was "hopefully converted to God," and 
united with the church in Vernon, commencing at once to labor 
for his Master, and ceasing not from such labors until he "entered 
into rest," his Christian character growing brighter and brighter 
as he neared the "other shore." His deafness prevented him 
from hearing the voices of his Pastor and brethren in the church, 
but his seat was never vacant in the "house of God, " or in the 
prayer meeting, except by reason of sickness or absence from 
home ; he was in all respects a worthy descendant of good Dea- 
con Hart, and John Lee.

Zenas Howes, born Feb. 3, 1792, died Jan. 17, 1828. He married

'76 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN ~, 

To Sarah Marsh Lee, we as a family, are more deeply indebted 
than to any other individual, and not only is it fitting that some 
record of her life should be given in these pages as a mark of 
respect and appreciation of her generous labors, but also to 
gratify the interest of so many who have known her — as the 
author of our Lee Book — by correspondence — and, a favored 
few, by affectionate personal intercourse. 

Her early life was that of a New England child, trained with 
almost Puritanic strictness. Her love of fun and frolic was great, 
and strengthened in childhood b}' her healthy and active temper- 
ament, but her innate sense of propriety kept her within the 
bounds of decorum. 

She attended the academy in Norwich, and later, the one in 
Westfield, but her health, unbroken until then, was injured by 
over-study, and she was obliged henceforth to depend on the 
desultory but effective methods of general reading. 

When about forty years old her hearing became defective, and 
increasing!}^ fettered her social activities, and limited her pleas- 
ures. For several years before her death she did not attend 
church, as she could not hear any of the services, even bv the use 
of the apparatus specially arranged for her when the church was 
built. She heard no sound save by using an ear trumpet, and 
then often with great weariness to herself, but she was so ani- 
mated and sympathetic in all that interested her friends that they, 
unchecked by any sign from her, often talked with her till she 
was wearied to illness. This infirmity led her to have a large 
correspondence in which she took much pleasure, and by which 
she greatly helped her friends in their daily life, and especially 
in the crisis of joy or sorrow. She accepted her deafness and all 
its consequent trials with Christian philosophy. 

Much that has been said of the character of her father was 
true of Miss Lee. She also, was "upright, straightforward and 
honest, with a clear head, and most excellent judgment " and 
her companionship with him had given her a breadth of mental 
vision, which she perhaps, could have attained in no other way. 
There seemed to be no weak link in the chain of her endowments 
for good. Truthful and just in thought and word, she was yet 
charitable toward the erring. Generous, not only to the large 
circle of her friends, but to all whose need was known to her ; 
interested in all that was helpful to the church or tlie community, 
and aiding to the full extent of her power, she (juietly did an 
amount of good, known only to her God. The objects dearest to 
her heart were those in which her parents had been specially in- 



SIXTH GENERATION. 77 

terested : the American Missionar}^ Association ; Seamen's Friend 
Society; Home Missionary Society ; but every appeal, by the 
charities of her church, of the city, or by the needs of destitution 
in any place, met a ready response limited only by her ability. 
"Of her liberality too much cannot be said." In this connection 
it may be proper to say, that the expense of publishing our first 
"Lee Book" was largely met by Miss Lee, as the receipts from 
the sale of copies fell far short of the cost of publication. 

As a Sabbath-School teacher she was enthusiastic. For some 
years she had a class of German young people whom she taught 
in their own language. When she was very young, and before 
she united with the church, she taught a class of young boys with 
marked success, and they visited her to the latest years of her 
life. For many years, beginning when she was a young lady, she 
was a tract distributor in a part of the town where the population 
was such that two ladies always went together, as it was unsafe 
for one to go alone. 

Miss Lee was finely educated, and all her life kept in line with 
the progress of thought on all vital questions, especially in the 
department of missions, at home and abroad. 

In practical life she was efficient, self-reliant, accurate, and re- 
markably persistent. With these characteristics of strength, were 
mingled a ready sympathy for others, a warm and demonstrative 
affection, and a yearning for love and appreciation, almost pathetic 
in one so strong and well fitted to stand alone. 

Her closing years were spent in her beautiful home in Norwich. 
Tenderly cared for by one who was the son of her father's 
adoption, honored and beloved by all who knew her, she quietly 
awaited the summons which called her to the land where she 
should hear the voices of those, so many, who would give her a 
joyous welcome.

1884, at Boone, Iowa. His remains now 
rest in the family lot at New Ipswich, N. 
H. Earnest and successful in his profes- 
sion, his future was one of brilliant prom- 
ise. In all the relations of life he was a 
peace-maker ; his integrity was unques- 
tioned, and his highest ambition that the

SEVENTH GENERATION. 79 

world should be the richer because he had 
lived in it. Because he has died the world 
is the poorer, and the loss to his home 
circle is irreparable. 

In 1872, with his father, Mr. Lee went to 
Connecticut, that together they might 
visit the scenes of the boyhood of the 
elder man. They spent several hours in 
the cemetery at Farmington, searching 
more especially for the grave of John Lee 
the emigrant. At length wearied and 
perhaps discouraged, the father went to 
the home of a friend for an hour's rest. 
During his absence the son, unwilling to 
abandon the search, while strolling around 
the yard, by accident hit a small stone 
with his foot, and trying to turn it aside, 
he found it firmly fixed in the ground. 
This excited his curiosity, and with a 
picket found near by, he dug the stone 
from the ground, and after clearing away 
the earth, made out the inscription, now 
so familiar to us all, but which then had 
been hidden for generations. When the 
father returned, and a comparison of 
dates proved that here was indeed that 
for which they had sought, their delight 
and enthusiasm can well be imagined. 
This was July 13, 1872. 

At once it was thought desirable to 
mark the spot by some more lasting monu- 
ment ; and Rev. Mr. Lee suggested that 
the expense be met by many small contri- 
butions, but on conferring with Mr. W. 
H. Lee of New York city, he expressed a 
wish to, himself, erect a suitable monu- 
ment, and the beautiful one which now 
marks the resting place of our honored 
ancestor, was placed there by him. 
160. V. Joseph Wentworth, born Jan. 20, 1855, died Sept. 5, 1855. 

Rev. Samuel Lee was born in Kensington, a parish of Berlin, 
March i8, 1803, and in less than two weeks afterward" his 
father died, leaving him to the sole charge of his mother. 
Seven years later she married Nathan Boardman, and removed 
to Westfield, taking with her the two children. When a lad of 
fourteen, he was for some months very ill from inflammation of 
the hip joint, and not only was obliged to use crutches for years, 



80 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN 2, 

but, as a consequence, was always lame, though later he recov- 
ered much of his former agility. This illness determined the 
whole course of his life. While on what was supposed to be his 
death-bed, his pastor visited him, and prayed that he might 
recover and become a minister of God. Never before had he 
thought of the possibility of such a life. Never after could he 
feel that he might devote his life to any other calling. In the 
face of poverty and disease, he fitted for college ; a part of the 
time the pupil of Rev. S. G. Goodrich, (Peter Parley,) earning 
money by "teaching for seven dollars a month, boarding 'round, 
and going on crutches." He graduated at Yale College in 1827, 
and from New Haven Theological Seminary in 1830. November 
4, 1830, he was ordained the pastor of the Congregational church 
in Sherborn, Mass., which had just separated from the parent 
Unitarian church. At the ordination, Dr. Taylor of New Haven 
preached the sermon. Dr. Lyman Beecher gave the charge, and 
Dr. Pond of Bangor addressed the people. Here he remained 
five years, "until all his congregation were converted." The 
church in New Ipswich, N. H., then the second largest in the 
State, called him to be their pastor, though they had never heard 
him preach, and he was installed there May 5, 1B36, and dis- 
missed November 4, i860, on account of feeble health. He 
never took another pastorate, though, after some years given to 
recuperation, he was able to follow the studies in which his soul 
delighted, and he published two books : " Eschatology, " endorsed 
as a book of reference by President Porter of Yale College ; "The 
Bible Regained," (dedicated to his daughter), and numerous 
articles for the theological periodicals. During the later years of 
his life he preached in neighboring pulpits, as he had oppor- 
tunity. August 18, 1878, though not in usual health, he preached 
at the Baptist church in New Ipswich, from the text : " And 
Abraham died, an old man, and full " The effort was too much 
for his strength. He went home and to his bed, from which he 
was never again to rise. In a few days paralysis rendered the 
left side helpless, and for three years it was his mission to show 
the graces of patience and submission, and to be ministered 
unto as a child. August 27, 1881, the end came, and he joined 
the large company of those dear to him by the ties of family and 
religious kinship who had preceded him to the heavenly world. 
Mr. Lee's activities were not confined to his parish. Early in 
his ministry lie attended "protracted meetings," and continued 
the work for many years. His labors were abundantly blessed. 
At Rindge, N. H., more than fifty people ascribed their conver- 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 81 

sion to a single sermon. " 'Behold the Lamb of God' he said in 
accents so tender and impressive that burdened souls, hearing 
only these words, saw, as in a vision, Christ to be their Saviour." 
Earnest in every good work, he was active in all measures that 
looked toward progress for good. He was prominent in State 
Christian charities ; temperance and anti-slavery reforms had 
his aid. 

He helped the cause of Education in every way in his power ; 
as one of those who originated Teachers' Institutes, the fore- 
runner of Normal Schools ; as Superintendent of Public Schools ; 
in Appleton Academy as "trustee, instructor, lecturer and 
counsellor, and friend of the student ;" in the State Legislature, 
and in helpful intercourse with the 30ung. He was especially 
happy in his guidance of young men, and the Church owes some 
of its bright lights to his influence. 

Mr. Lee had a character of rare strength ; determined, persist- 
ent, self-reliant, of positive judgments, methodical, and of great 
executive abilit}^ yet his strength was saved from harshness by "a 
nature most kind and sympathetic, abounding in all gentle 
courtesies and charities," and "singularly attractive social quali- 
ties." As a writer, he had fertility of thought and fluency of 
expression ; was "a trained logician, acute metaphysician, and 
apt in illustration." His sermons, though preached from very 
brief notes, were "felicitous in analysis and arrangement," and 
he had '-a. fervor and spirituality in devotion never to be 
forgotten." 

The Hollis Association of ministers, of which Mr. Lee was for 
many years a member, in resolutions passed after his death, 
accord to him the possession of "superior intellectual powers, a 
noble, generous, cordial nature, a firm belief in the essential 
doctrines of Revelation, and unusual power as a preacher." 

Socially he was a staunch friend, helpful in all emergencies, 
chivalric, a stimulating companion, helpful and appreciative 
critic, and wise counsellor. 

The fullest and ripest wealth of his nature in all its best 
manifestations, was shown in his home in a degree appreciated 
only by those who there knew him. 

When comparatively a young man, Mr. Lee became interested 
in learning everything possible about his ancestors. About 1852 
he learned that Dea. Charles Lee was engaged in the same 
pursuit, and they became mutually helpful ; after Dea, Lee's 
death his daughter Sarah Marsh, and Mr. Lee continued their 
researches. About 1870 he opened a correspondence with Mr. 



82 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN -, 

William Henry Lee of New York City, and they found to their 
mutual pleasure that they were relatives ; and for years they 
carried on a voluminous correspondence. The discovery of the 
headstone of John ^ seemed to give them something tangible as 
a rallying point, and the enthusiasm of both gentlemen was 
aroused. After an exchange of many letters, the millionaire 
furnished the monument, and the clergyman selected the 
Biblical texts and arranged the inscriptions. 

William Henry said to the daughter of Rev. Samuel, "I owe a 
great deal to your father. He was the one who first aroused my 
interest in genealogy." 

In 1874, Mr. Lee furnished for the New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register an article containing the record of the first 
four generations of our family (aided in this, as in all his literary 
pursuits, by his daughter), which involved a great deal of labor, 
as the older the manuscript, generally the more illegible it is 
found to be. 

In the delirium preceding the paralysis which closed his life, 
Mr. Lee was greatly troubled, lest some important genealogical 
records had been lost, and was reassured only by having them 
brought to him, and the partial reading of the Lee Book of 1878 
was among his last conscious pleasures.

Miss Lee was a rare character. 
Her early life was spent in a 
New England home with its almost Spartan simplicity. Her 
education from books was gained first in the district school, and 
later in the State Normal School, from which she graduated in 
i860, and soon after was sent by the State Superintendent of" 
Public Instruction to Oswego, to learn the Pestalozzian methods, 
then being introduced there. She entered with enthusiasm into 
the method of teaching, being convinced, "that there is a natural 
and beautiful way of teaching everything." In 1862 she was sent 
by the State Superintendent to open a Training School for 
Teachers in Davenport, Iowa. She afterwards taught in other 
Normal Schools, and lectured before Institutes and Sabbath 



84 . DESCENDANTS OF JOHN ", 

School Conventions. With Dwight L. Moody she spent a 
summer in Illinois, exemplifying the Pestalozzian system to 
bodies of Sabbath-School teachers. 

Miss Lee had always wished to study medicine, and though 
for years prevented from carrying out her wish, perseverance 
conquered, and in 1874 she graduated from the medical depart- 
ment of the University of Michigan. The following year she 
became connected with the State Normal School at Oswego, N. Y., 
as teacher of Physiology, and she also had a general charge 
of the health of the school, and retained that position during the 
remainder of her life, except two years spent in Europe. During 
the last years of her teaching she had charge of classes in "the 
closely related subjects of Zoology, Physiology, Physical Culture 
and the Methods in these branches." In gymnastics she was an 
enthusiastic follower of Delsarte, and in addition to teaching in 
classes, she lectured extensively — at Cornell, before the Saveur 
College of Languages, Boston School of Oratory, and at many 
other places, seeking to introduce this method. She was the 
author of one or more school books. 

We are allowed to quote from an autobiography, which though 
written in the third person, is an unmistakable reflection of the 
character of the writer. 

"While the school life was so barren, the other life was fruit- 
ful. The girl early made intimate acquaintance with the 
domestic animals ; learned their individual dispositions, * * * 
broke steers and colts ; taught her beloved dog. Dime, to draw 
her on a sled ; knew every sheep in her father's flock by its 
countenance, and converted them into a pet flock, which crowded 
about her as she entered the pasture. She drove the oxen while 
her father plowed, and when particularly fine geological speci- 
mens were turned up by the steel nose, her father would 
'breathe' the oxen while he named the stones, and pointed out 
their peculiarities; flowers and their parts were taught her by her 
father, and on their long rides, beauties of earth and sky, of 
meadow and mountain, were made subjects of conversation. * * 
She became a girl who gloried in her strength, who would not be 
bound by any garment; who always 'swelled up ' when 'Miss 
Liddy' was fitting her dresses; who when she studied physiology, 
promptly adopted all hygienic modes of living, was 'as strong as 
an ox,' and rejoiced in the fact that she could work all day just 
as well as a boy. In all this, the gentle and refined father saw 
education, and cause for congratulation," * * * With the 
poorest tools, this child tried her hand at making all sorts of 
things, from a raft to a hen-house. She became useful and 
trusted on the farm ; important interests were committed to her. 
* * * Any one with half an educational eye can see that in this 
free, out-door life of the child, were splendid materials for school 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 85 

work. * * * |-,uj- there was no teacher big, wise, and brave 
enough to use these materials. * * * No one knew how to get 
the engine, which was under a full head of steam, upon a track. 
* * * Since reaching maturit3^ Dr. Lee has worked not so 
much to give information, as to influence life. She often remem- 
bers the Granby girl she knew years ago, and hopes that some 
other girl may have her home and school life wedded in healthful 
union through her direct or indirect influence." 

Mrs. Mary S. Barnes, now Prof, of History at Palo-Alto, Cal- 
ifornia, says of her : "The record of her life is on the face of it, 
that of an ardent, free and active soul, concerned with nature and 
life. Such she was ; and because she was such, she was often 
regarded as peculiar and aggressive ; but her peculiarities were 
always on the side of sense, and her aggressions sprung from a 
genuine wish to befriend and improve. What always struck me 
as most peculiar in her character was its constant progress ; there 
was not a bit of conservatism in her nature ; and age could not 
touch her. She abandoned the old for the new without a moment's 
hesitation if the new was better ; her entrance into medicine, her 
return to teaching, her devotion in her later years to Delsartism 
are illustrative. Yet her life was a unit, in its tastes, ambitions, 
and spirit." 

After the death of Dr. Lee, the Local Board of the Oswego 
State Normal School, held a special meeting to take suitable action 
with reference to the sad event, and adopted a memorial to be 
entered upon their minutes, from which we quote the closing 
sentence, " Her lovely Christian character and life, her labors for 
temperance, her sympathy with, and ready aid in, every move- 
ment tending toward improved social conditions, endeared her to 
the community in which she lived, and make the sense of loss by 
her death extend much beyond the school which for nearly twenty 
years had been graced and elevated by her presence, example and 
noble and successful labors."

While a young man, Mr. Lee was employed by his aunt, Mrs. 
Emma Willard, in the office of the Troy Female Seminary, and 
by improving every opportunity obtained a good education. For 
many years he was a prominent merchant in Troy, N. Y., and 
Cincinnati. In 1861 he bought a farm in Marysville, Ohio, and 
there spent the remainder of his life. 

He was always and everywhere a Christian gentleman, public- 
spirited, and a power for good; the object of his life was to make 
the world better. He had a wide range of reading, and was of 
scholarly tastes with strong metaphysical tendencies. One who 
as a young man, was a clerk in his store said of him: " For half a 
century I have known him, and during that time I cannot recall a 
word or act of his that was unchristian or unmanly." 

"During his long and useful career, Mr. Lee was prominently 
connected with the Presbyterian and Congregational churches, 
holding the position of Elder and Deacon in each, being elected 
to the latter position in the local Congregational church in 1864, 
and holding that place till his death." 

The later years of his life were made happy by the society of 
his children and grandchildren. As the infirmities of age in- 
creased, he loosed his hold on the interests of this life and fast- 
ened it on those of a higher one. For years, his many hours of 
wakefulness were cheered by thoughts of that heavenly world, in 
whose twilight he waited for many months. Gradually the light 
grew brighter, and December 29, 1896, he entered that city which 
eye hath not seen.

The following testimony is by Rev. H. C. Trumbull, Chaplain 
of the Tenth ; 



92 DESCENDANTS OB' JOHN 2, 

"Captain Greaves will be remembered by his comrades as a 
brave soldier, possessing fine qualities of mind, and many attrac- 
tive traits of personal character. The fact that he was in com- 
mand of the company in the ranks of which he went out from 
Stamford, when hardly a year had passed, and that too in a regi- 
ment comprising such material as the Tenth, with its bright record 
for discipline, hard fighting and thorough efficiency, evidenced 
his superiority in much that went to make a first-class soldier." 

General |. L. Otis gives this estimate of his military character: 
" His conduct in action was always commendable. I always con- 
sidered coolness and self-possession in action the most valuable 
characteristics an officer could possess, and Captain Greaves had 
these in a remarkable degree." 

The officers of the Tenth thus testify to the military character 
of Captain Greaves: "Never flinching in the hour of danger, 
never failing in the performance of any task assigned him, he won 
the confidence of his commanders, and the respect of those whom 
he commanded. 

" His record of patriotic services is one in which those who love 
him may have just pride, and his early death is sincerely lamented 
by many who knew his capabilities of usefulness."

Mr. Lee enlisted July 29, 1862, in Co. E, i6th I^eg't, Conn.. 
Vols., and was in actual service for the first time at the battle of 
Antietam. "His company never stacked arms when he was not 
with them. Once he was the highest officer in his Company on 
the field. April 20, 1864, he was captured at Plymouth, N. C, 
and taken to Andersonville, remaining there eight months, and 
at Florence and Richmond three months longer. During his 



100 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN 2^ 

imprisonment, starvation and disease made him delirious, and 
when reason returned he found that the left side of his body had 
been frozen. He was an invalid all the remainder of his life. 

The crowning act of his whole life is well described in the 
Hartford Post by a comrade and fellow sufferer. After stating 
that a petition to the National Government at Washington had 
been drawn up, asking that the regular troops might be ex- 
changed, but not recognizing the claims of the negro soldiers 
who were imprisoned with them, he writes : 

"In the i6th Connecticut was a light-haired, fair-faced, non- 
commissioned officer from the town of Granby, by the name of 
Richard H. Lee. He was the orderly sergeant of his company, 
and the idol of his associates. Scarcely past twenty years of age, 
he was a moral hero, having in him the stuff of which martyrs 
must have been made. As soon as it became known generally 
that the petition was in circulation, and that the members of the 
i6th Reg't would be asked to sign it, Sergeant Lee delivered a 
spirited address against the measure, on the ground that it was 
unjust to the negro soldiers in the camp, and in complete 
violation of the policy and purposes of the government at 
Washington. It was a fearless stand against the selfishness of 
men who thought only of escape from the frightful ravages of 
death, visible by every hut and tent and pathway in that crudest 
of prison yards. To the honor of the i6th Reg't, half of whose 
numbers lie in the Andersonville cemetery, not one man of the 
command attached his name to that petition." 

March g, 1865, he was exchanged from the rebel prison, and 
discharged from the service June 15, 1S65. 

All honor to those brave heroes, those uncrowned martyrs ! In 
the excitement and enthusiasm of the battle-field, many men have 
been brave, but these men were starving, sick, neglected and 
cruelly treated in every way ; and they knew that they might be 
taken away from all this to comfort and safety, merely by the 
sacrifice of what, to many, would seem a claim of little importance. 

Honor to them that they never faltered, and greater honor to 
the youth, who, by his moral courage and enthusiasm, led them 
to feel that they could not forsake those who, from ignorance 
and weakness, were defenceless and helpless ! 

Truly, there was no braver deed in that whole war, and well 
may we be proud of this hero, who belonged to our blood and 
our lineage.

Mr. Loveland was born at Glastonbury in 1825. After receiv- 
ing a liberal education, he entered the ministry of the Univer- 
salist church and began preaching at Granby before he was 
twenty-one years old. After years of labor in this profession, 
his health failed, and he turned his attention to the raising of 
small fruits, with such benefit to himself physically, that he again 
entered the active labors of the ministry and continued in it 
until his death at Granby, Sept. 22, 1884. 

"He was a man of rare attainments, and fine literary ability. 
While performing manual labor, his great brain was working out 
some unsolved problem. He had a character of inflexible up- 
rightness of purpose. The heroic deeds, the kindly acts, the 
throbs of the heart given to the cause of truth and the good of 
humanity, will be cherished by many a loving and loyal heart."

The following just and appreciative notice of Mrs. Sluyter has 
been written for us by her life-long friend and co-worker, Mrs. 
Nathaniel Shipman : 

To those who are most familiar with Mrs. Sluyter and her work in 
Hartford, her career is a wonderful unfolding of the Providential 
care which orders all our lives, and illustrates, in a most striking and 
beautiful manner. Dr. Horace Bushnell's famous sermon on "Every 
Man's Life a Plan of Grod." From her girlhood, she was led through 
many and devious ways, through sometimes storm and stress, to the 
Damascus Gate of her life, where the Heavenly Light flooded and 
startled her soul, and where she first consecrated herself to missionary 
service. We know how, "in obedience to the heavenly vision," she 
labored successfully among the poor of Binghamton, and now, after 
twenty-four years of untiring devotion in the city of Hartford, her 
watching friends and co-workers can heartily echo the words : 
"What hath God Wrought." 

She is by instinct a missionary, by grace a spiritual guide, and by 
experience and training, a wise, far-seeing and inspiring leader in 
humanitarian work. She was among the first to apjjly the principles 



116 DESCENDANTS OF JOHN -, 

of the "New Charity" to such service, and demonstrated its wisdom 
so early as to fairly entitle her to the name of " Pioneer. " To use her 
own words, "To promote self-help and right living by direct personal 
contact, and every industrial, social, and religious assistance available, 
is the ultimate end of the New Charity." 

This has been the underlying principle of her method as Superin- 
tendent of the Union for Home Work in Hartford, for which the 
whole city will always hold her in grateful and honored and loving 
memory. — M. C- S-

Tickets were granted out of the Secretary's office of the Island 

of Barbadoes, for the departure therefrom, beginning in 1679 to 

the following : 

5 In the "Unity," for Va., 
Henry Lee, | ^^^.^ 1^ 1679 

( In the "Martin," for

. ( In the "Happy Return," 

Henry Lee, | ^^^ London, Oct. 25, 1679. 

From the city records of Leyden, Holland, among the lists of 
names, mostly natives of the eastern coast of England, especially 
Essex County and Colchester, there were Samuel and Bridget 
Lee, the latter a daughter of Joos Lee.* These came to New 
England and settled here. 

There is no evidence that either the Pilgrims from Leyden, or 
those who left for St. Christopher's and the Barbadoes were in 
any way related to our ancestor, John Lee. But is it not 
probable that of the emigrants to these islands, many found their 
way to New England, where they could enjoy religious liberty, 
and that from these men have come some of the families of the 
name of Lee in other parts of Connecticut, and in Massachusetts, 
Vermont and New Jersey? It is historical, that many of the 
emigrants to the West India Islands finally settled in New 
England. 



*SeeNew England Hist, and Gen. Reg-ister, Vol. 13, P. 342. 



Lees of English History. 

The name first appears as Lega, De Le, De la Lee, and of various 
spelling, gradually taking the present form, Lee. In the " Dooms- 
day Book" Lega and Lee are often used to denote the same family. 
The name has also sometimes assumed still other forms, as Lea, 
Leigh, Lay and Ley. The word "Lee" signifies a "pasture, 
meadow or grass land." Previous to the use of surnames, 
persons were designated by the place of their residence, or some 
epithet descriptive of their personal character or occupation. 
Thus, John, residing near the lee, eventually became " John 
Lee," Samuel, very pale or white, became "Samuel White," and 
William the carpenter, became "William Carpenter," etc. 

The family of Lee is one of the most ancient in English his- 
tory. In the eleventh century the name of Launcelot Lee is 
associated with William the Conqueror, and is of Norman origin, . 
and in the division of estates by that chieftain, a fine estate in 
Essex county was bestowed upon him. 

Lionel Lee "raised a company of gentlemen cavaliers," at the 
head of which he accompanied Richard Coeur de Leon, in the 
third crusade, A. D. 1192. For gallant conduct at the siege of 
Acre, he was made " Earl of Litchfield," and another estate was 
given to the family, which was later called "Ditchly. " The 
armor worn by the crusaders is still preserved in the Horse 
Armory, Tower of London. They were devoted followers of the 
Stuarts, and distinguished for loyalty to the crown, and, for their 
acts of valor, received various honors and distinctions. Two of 
the name have been Knights of the Garter, and their banners, 
surmounted by the "Lee Arms," may be seen in St. George's 
Chapel, Windsor. 

For the satisfaction of those who may be interested in tracing 
the origin of the family to nobility and antiquity, we make a few 
extracts from the "Baronetage of England," published in the 
middle of the last century. They will be found to be more 
ciirioi/s than useful at the present day. 

Hugh de la Lee was witness to a grant of land and an abbey 
of Bilderwas in 1155.

TO THE READER, 



Note. —It is not the design of this work to carry out the female 
branches of the family farther than the second or thii'd generations, 
unless records are voluntarily furnished, as the several lines l)ec()me 
difficult to trace, after the family name has been changed, tln-ough 
several generations. 

The following records of the Mary Lee (Upson) family are fur- 
nished by descendants of her three sons, being mainly a synopsis of 
their individual descent through the several generations, and which 
are gladly given place in these pages. 

The names of soldiers of the French and Revolutionary wars of 
this branch, found on the " Roll of Honor," though not mentioned in 
the text, were obtained from public records, and are deemed reliable, 
but by no means complete. 



DESCENDANTS OF MARY LEE UPSON, 

ELDEST DAUGHTER OF 

JOHNi OF FARMINGTON. 

Contributed by Lt. Col. Holdridge O. Collins, 
Los Angeles, Cal. 

3. Mary Lee, the second child of John Lee and Mary Hart, 
his wife, daughter of Deacon Stephen Hart, was born at Farni- 
ington. Conn., on August 14, 1664, and on December 29, 1682, 
she was married to Sergeant Stephen Upson of Mattatuck, or 
Waterbury. 

By this marriage, the patronymic ceased in her line, but her 
descendants have inherited those sterling qualities of integrity, 
patriotism and enterprise which were the predominant character- 
istics of her father, and which have placed them in the front rank 
of the best citizens of this country. Throughout the length and 
breadth of this land they have been distinguished in the mercan- 
tile world, in the professions, in the arts and sciences, and in the 
wars waged for the preservation of their Nation, equally proud, 
with those who bear the name, of the Lee blood of old John of 
Farmington, (No. i. ) 

Of the youth and maidenhood of Mary Lee but little can be 
told. The distinguished position of her grandfather, Deacoh 
Stephen Hart, and the wealth and tender solicitude of her father 
and mother saved her from the many trials and severe labors 
of the early settlers of her day, and, marrying at the early age of 
eighteen years she entered upon her new life surrounded with all 
the comforts and luxuries of those times which were found in 
the homes of the wealthier Colonists. 



146 DESCENDANTS OF MARY LEE UPSON, 

Her husband, Sergeant Stephen Upson, was born in Farming- 
ton about 1653. He was the son of Thomas Upson, who first 
appeared in the Connecticut Colony at Hartford prior to 1638. 
At Hartford on January 23, 1647, Thomas married Elizabeth Ful- 
ler. He was an original proprietor and settler of Farmington at 
which place he died on July 19, 1655. 

Stephen Upson joined the Company at Mattatuck, or Water- 
bury, where on December 29, 1679, he signed the Articles of 
Association "on account of a new lot." "He was surveyor, 
school committee, grand juror, often townsman, and three times 
Deputy to the General Court; — in May 1710, October 1712 and 
October 1729. He became Sergeant in 1715, and in 1729 he had 
a seat with the Veterans in the new meeting house. " 

The married life of Mary Lee at Waterbury was a happy one. 
She died February 15, 1716, surrounded by her children and 
deeply mourned by her husband, who survived her until 1735.

upon its organization in i6gi. " He was Deputy to the General 
Court in May, 1697, and October, 1701, and Townsman, School 
Committee, Town Surve3'or, etc., at different times. He seems 
to have been one of the most respected of the early settlers." 

He was the third son of John Bronson, one of the company 
of Rev. Thomas Hooker, and a soldier from Hartford in Captain 
Mason's command during the Pequot War of 1637. In 1640, John 
lived at his home lot in the old village of Hartford, given to him 
for his services in the Pequot War. In 1641 he moved to Tunxis, 
or Farmington, and on the organization of the Farmington 
church, on Oct. 13, 1652, he was one of the "Seven Pillars." 
In May, 1651, and at subsequent sessions, he was a Deputy from

associated with the founding and making of New Haven Colony. 
His great-grandfather, Edward Wooster, was the first settler of 
Derby, and his father, Timothy Wooster, Jr., was first cousin of 
Gen. David Wooster. His maternal great-grandfather, Rev. 
John Bowers, graduated from Harvard College in 1649, and, 
marrying Bridget, the daughter of Anthony Thompson, one of the 
signers of the Compact at Quinnipiac with Rev. John Davenport 
and Governor Eaton, finally settled in Derby as its first minister. 

During the war of the Revolution, Walter Wooster was 
Sergeant of Captain Eli Leavenworth's Company of the Sixth 
"Connecticut Line," commanded by Col. Return Jonathan 
Meigs. He enlisted March 2, 1777, for three years, during which 
time he served continually with his regiment along the Hudson 
River, at Peekskill and around King's Bridge, where he was 
seriously wounded on one expedition. He was with Washingtcm 
at White Plains and in the storming of Stony Point. 

Upon the discovery of Arnold's treason he was ordered to West

Captain Jesse Curtiss' Co., under Colonel Noadiah Hooper, and 
in service at Peekskill and along the Hudson. In 1779 he was 
present at the attack of the British on New Haven. While 
attempting to remove his family and household effects to a place 
of safety, his father, being a Tory, taunted him and refused to 
assist him. A summons was issued for him and others to appear 
and show why they did not assist in defending the town. His 
name is found on file with others whose excuses were accepted. 
There is a tradition that he was captured on that occasion, and 
carried to Halifax, where he suffered much from hunger, and was 
made to officiate as a barber. Some years after the war he 
removed to Woleott, and his name appears on the church records 
in 1803-6, as one of the Prudential Committee. He died March 
25) 1833, aged 79. Children :

SECOND SON OF 



JOHN LEE 



THIRD GENERATION. 



4. Stephen -, son of John i, the immigrant, was the first 
settler in that portion of the original tract of land, called in 1707, 
"Great Swamp;" in 1720, Kensington, and, in 1754, New Britain. 
He received a grant from the town in January, i68g "of 5 roods 
of land on the westerly side of the highway, (provided, it doth 
not hinder former grants,) and the watering place; he building 
on it within four years, or else it is to return to the town again." 
In March following, application was made to "the Court" "to 
la}' out Stephen Lee's lot, as near as they can, according to 
grant." His house, afterwards known as the "Hinsdale House," 
was for many years "one of the grandest houses in New Britain." 
It was taken down in 1834. 

A church was organized in 17 10, and in 171 2 Rev. Mr. Burnham 
was settled over the Society. At the time of his settlement there 
were but fourteen families in the place, and the Church consisted 
of ten members. Stephen Lee was one of the "seven pillars of 
the Church ;" his name stands next to that of the minister, and he 
sat "in the first ' pue ' next the pulpit." He was chosen, Decem- 
ber 18, 1693, one of a committee of three "to take care and have 
inspection over the youth in y*" meetinghouse on the Sabbaths

and other days of publique exorcises." He was one of the most 
active men in securing the organization of the New Britam 
Society. He died the year before the act of incorpora- 
tion was passed, but his widow, 85 years of age, was still 
living at the homestead, and she became a member of the First 
Church of New Britain when it was organized, having with her 
husband united with the Church in Farmington October 5, 1709. 

He was Captain of the Farmington Train Band, and bore that 
title from middle age. 

He married October i, 1690, Elizabeth Royce of Wallingford, 
dau. of Isaac and Elizabeth (Lathrop), his wife. He died June 
1-, 1753) aged 87. A red sandstone in the old cemetery at 
"Great Swamp" (now Christian Lane) marks his last resting 
place. His widow died May 2, 1760, aged 91 years, and is buried 
in the new cemetery at New Britain. Children :

lead to the meeting-house, and to the "burying-yard." The meet-

apart for that purpose. " The oldest grave in the yard is 1756."

His father gave to him, "for parental love, and to his 
wife, Hannah Warren, half his dwelling house, to be the north 
half, and half of the barn, garden and orchard, with the use of 
the cellar." He says : "It is understood that my son, Josiah, is 
bound in the present expedition against our northern enemies, 
the French, if any accident befall him that he return no more, 
his wife is to have free liberty to use, occupy and enjoy the 
premises so long as she remains his widow." Signed, Stephen

The name of Col. Lee, from early manhood, is prominent 
on the records of the Town, Church and State. No one in 
the town exercised more influence in shaping its civil and relig- 
ious affairs, and for years they were so largely intrusted to his 
care that he was called "the Father of the Town." He was one 
of the first "School Visitors," and one of those who established a 
free public Library about 1775-80. He was the principal magis- 
trate for thirty years, and administered with wisdom and impar- 
tiality. Controversies among the people were submitted to his 
judgment, and so great was the confidence in his intelligence, 
unswerving integrity and uprightness, that his decisions were 
universally accepted ; in fact, had almost the force of law. 

Col. Lee's influence was not confined to his native town, but 
was largely felt in the councils of the Colony and the State. 
With the exception of four years, he was a member of the Colonial 
Assembly from 1761 to 1775, was a representative in the General 
Assembly of the State from its first session in 1776, until 1791, 
with the exception of the years 1779-82. He was a member of 
the Assembly, which, headed by Gov. Jonathan Trumbull and 
other officers of the State, met in Hartford, October, 1776, and 
took the "Oath of Fidelity of Allegiance" to the new govern- 
ment of the United States, and upon the adoption of the Con- 
stitution, he was a delegate from the town of Berlin to the con-

vention that met at Hartford, January 1788, for its ratification. 
During all this important epoch in our Colonial and State history, 
Col. Lee held relations of friendship and intimacy with the lead- 
ing patriots of the day, and shared with them the labor and 
responsibility of moulding our civil institutions. Col. Lee was 
also identified with the military organizations of the Colony, 
receiving his commission as Captain in May, 1767, the record 
being: "This assembly do establish Mr. Isaac Lee, Jr. to be 
Captain of the 13th Co. of the Train Band, in the Sixth Regi- 
ment, in this Colony. " In October, 1767, he was appointed 
Lieutenant-Colonel ; and in March, 1775, Colonel of the Fifteenth 
Regiment. In 1776, at the age of 60, he resigned his commission, 
asking the Assembly not to reappoint him. 

At the first meeting of the New Britain Ecclesiastical Society, 
"Isaac Lee was choyce of for Society Clark " He was for many 
years a Deacon in the Congregational church, and contributed 
largely to its prosperity, and "was one of the only two laymen of 
the church, who were ever heard to pray in public." In 1754, 
a portion of the town of Berlin became a separate society, and 
Col. Lee gave to it the name of New Britain, in honor of Great 
Britain, the home of his ancestors. 

The manners of Col. Lee were courtly and dignified ; his 
presence, tall and commanding ; and his dress that of the digni- 
taries of Colonial times, viz. : a cocked hat, white wig, blue coat, 
with metal buttons, white cravat, black velvet breeches with silver 
knee-buckles, white silk stockings, and shoes with large silver 
buckles. " He was one of the two men in New Britain — Rev. 
Dr. Smalley being the other — who were treated with the utmost 
reverence. When he was approaching or passing, all hats were 
doffed, even by men laboring in the fields some distance from the 
road" and the children at play "made their manners." 

In the early part of his life feats of strength, and performances 
showing great agility and powers of endurance were the pastimes 
and customs of the times. Young Lee was of herculean strength, 
and gained a wide reputation for his successes with the champions 
of the day. At Col. Lee's first marriage an attempt was made by 
a rejected suitor and his followers to "steal the bride" as was an 
old-time custom. The marriage ceremony was followed by a 
supper, and then by a dance in which the bride and bridegroom 
"led up the ball," followed often by the minister and all the 
guests. A party of young men intended to abduct the bride on 
her way to her new home, but Col. Lee was watchful, and had 
entered and bolted his doors, before they reached the house, but 



176 



DESCENDANTS OF STEPHEN, 



the riotous crew broke down the door, and attempted to over- 
power Col. Lee, while the leader should steal the bride. In the 
battle that followed, Col. Lee seriously wounded seven men. It 
is said that the custom was ever after abandoned throughout that 
region. 

Mrs. Emma Willard made this event the subject of her cele- 
brated poem "Stealing the Bride," which, only for its great 
length, we should have been glad to copy. 

"He died in 1802, leaving a name of which his descendants 
may justly be proud, and a patrimony unusually large for that 
time."

General Paterson graduated at Yale in 1762, and commenced 
practice as a lawyer in New Britain, soon becoming distinguished 
in his profession. Early in 1774 he removed to Lenox, Mass., 
Dea. Lee going with him. From Lenox he was sent as repre- 
sentative to the first provincial Congress which met in Boston, 
Sept. 1774, ^^^ ^^so to the Second Congress which met in 1775. 
While there he was a member of ten different Committees, some 
of them most important. In Dec. 1774, he began to prepare for 
the war which he foresaw was inevitable. In May, 1775, he entered 
the field with his regiment as its Colonel, and was stationed near 
Boston for its defence ; then was ordered to New York, then to 
Canada, and afterwards joined the army of Washington crossing 
the Delaware with him and taking part in the battles of Trenton 
and Princeton. Feb. 21, 1777, he was appointed Brigadier- 
General, and later became Major-General. He remained in service 
until the close of the war, and was active in the organization of 
the order of the Cincinnati in 1783. About 1790, he removed to 
Lisle, Broome Co., N. Y., and from there was a member of U. S. 
Congress i8o3-'o5. He was over six feet in height, of nervous 
temperament; very active and powerful, and a noted pedestrian. 

Eminent as a lawyer, respected and trusted as a citizen, he was 
probably one of the most distinguished of the early citizens of 
New Britain. He died at Lisle, July 19, 1808. — History of New

sequently studied medicine with Dr. Todd 
of Hartford; was "Assistant Physician" 
in the "Retreat for the Insane" there; 
afterwards, when 26 years old, became 
Superintendent and Physician of the 
"M'Lean Asylum," Charlestown, Mass. 
He was distinguished for the successful 
substitution of the mild for the severe 
treatment of the insane. He was taken 
sick while on a visit to his friend, Dr. 
Woodward of the "Massachusetts Hos- 
pital" at Worcester, and died Oct. 29, 
1836, aged 28, and was buried at Mt. 
Auburn. His widow married Rev. Joseph 
S. Gallagher of Bloomfield, N. J. 

The trustees of the McLean Asylum, in 
resolutions passed at a special meeting 
after his death, speak of "his remarkable 
devotion to the pursuit in which he had 
engaged, the elevation of his views, and 
the propriety of the means by which he 
sought to attain the most worthy objects." 

We quote from the Hartford Courant of 
Nov. 1836. "Dr. Lee was the first to in- 
troduce religious exercises among the 
insane, and the experiment was attended 
with the happiest results. He was cut off 
in the midst of a bright career of useful- 
ness, but not until he had matured the 
plan which has done so much for the sons 
and daughters of affliction."

Lieutenant-General was assigned to the command of the trans- 
Mississippi department, and commissioned to organize a govern- 
ment, which he did. He was the last commander in the Confed- 
erate army to surrender. 

After the close of the war he was in succession, President of 
the Atlantic and Pacific Telegraph Co. ; President of the Western 
Military Academy; Chancellor of the University of Nashville, 
and Professor of Mathematics in the University at Sewanee, 
Tenn., where he died, March 28, 1893. 

A man of great force of character, executive ability, and 
rare honesty, he had also the gentler traits which are united 
to strength and bravery. Being severel}' wounded at the battle 
of Bull Run he was carried to Lynchburg, and was there in the 
care of Miss Selden, whose skill and devotion restored him to 
health. He became devotedly attached to her, and soon after his 
recovery they were married. Their life is said to have been 
exceptionally happy.

"Mr. Lee was one of the first to enter the manufacturing busi- 
ness in the town of New Britain. He was connected with 
various other institutions and business pursuits, and for a num- 
ber of years was the leading man of the town. He was decidedly 
a public spirited man, and took a lively interest in the affairs of 
the town and State. He filled many important offices in the gift 
of his town, serving in the Legislature, and being the first Post- 
master in the (then) town of Berlin, receiving his commission 
from President John Quincy Adams. He was an intense reader, 
and one who remembered everything he read ; very few men of 
to-day possess a more general knowledge of every day life than 
did he. When quite young he was often consulted on legal 
matters, and rendered his friends many a valuable service by 
drawing up documents of a legal nature, free of charge. He was 
a very liberal man and contributed largely, in his time, to all the 
churches. Mr. Lee had taken much interest in the family his- 
tory ^was a vice-president of the ' Lee Association ' at the first 
gathering in 1884, and was the oldest man present. He was 
buried at New Britain with Masonic honors, being one of the 
oldest Masons in the State." 

While journeying in the Northwest in 1857, Mr. Lee chanced 
to be in St. Paul when Miss Abigail Gardner, one of the survivors 
of the Spirit Lake massacre, was returned from her captivity 
among the Indians, and he was present when she was formally 
delivered to the Governor of Minnesota by the friendly Indians 
who had rescued her. At the request of Gov. Medary, Mr. Lee 
escorted Miss Gardner to her friends at Fort Dodge, and after- 
wards interested himself in her behalf. During many years she 
wrote him from time to time, and always with expressions of 
deepest gratitude.

with the very beginning of the colony. His first business expe- 
rience was in Troy, N. Y. , as a clerk, and a few years later he 
entered a wholesale dry goods house in New York. In 1845, he 
founded the importing and jobbing firm of 'Lee & Case,' subse- 
quently the house was changed to 'Wm. H. Lee & Co.,' and 
finally to 'Lee, Tweedy & Co.,' which remains undisturbed by 
his death, two of his sons being members of the firm. He was 
identified with the dry goods trade more than fifty years, and for 
at least half that time was among the most prominent merchants 
of the metropolis. He fairly won a large fortune by honorable 
business ability and enterprise, to which he added largely by 
judicious investments in real estate." — Obituary. 

He was one of the charter members of the Union League 
Club, an active member of the Chamber of Commerce, and of 
the Sons of the Revolution. Not only was he a shrewd and suc- 
cessful merchant, but a patriotic citizen, and rendered efficient 
aid to the city authorities during the civil war by his influence, 
and in sustaining the enlistment of colored troops, when the 
prejudice of a certain element of the city was threatening vio- 
lence, and this, too, in view of threatened detriment to his own 
business interests. 

During his metropolitan residence of half a century, Mr. Lee 
was always noted for public spirit in patriotic movements and in 
projects for local improvements. His views on municipal ques- 
tions were frequently expressed through the city press, and often 
over his own signature. He advocated with ability the adoption 
of many changes and improvements for the interest of the city, 
the wisdom of which was proved by after experience, and all 
tending to "make New York become the city of the future of 
this continent." 

"There is not one among the business men of New York who 
has a better right than Mr. Wm. H. Lee to regard with satisfac- 
tion his career as a metropolitan merchant, nor is there one whose 
record as a promoter of charitable and literary enterprise can be 
quoted by his fellow citizens with greater pride than his. 

"Notwithstanding his varied business engagements, he found 
time to interest himself in biographical and genealogical studies, 
in the course of which he prepared several papers and two admir- 
able addresses, which were delivered before the Historical 
Society, on Elihu Burritt, a townsman, and Gen. Paterson, a 
Revolutionary hero, and a kinsman — papers which are highly 
prized as historic documents. 

"The aid which he rendered Miss Sarah Marsh Lee in the prep- 



196 DESCENDANTS OF STEPHEN, 

aration and publication of 'John Lee and his Descendants,' in 
1878 was most efficient and highly valued. In 1876, at his own 
expense, he erected in the Farmington Cemetery an imposing and 
beautiful monument of Scotch Granite, to the memory of John 
Lee, the ancestor of our family, with which was incorporated the 
original headstone, and on which was inscribed the date of his 
death in 1690. He also made valuable contributions to the New 
Britain Institute of his native town, of which he was a member. 

"Although deeply involved in business pursuits, Mr. Lee was 
fond of domestic life and travel, and was noted for hospitality to 
his friends — crossed the ocean several times for business or 
pleasure, and traveled extensively in Europe with his family. 

"Hartford was for several 3'ears his summer residence, and 
having for sometime been in declining health, and having also 
retired from active business, he removed from his Fifth Avenue 
residence in New York, in 1893, to make Hartford his future 
home. His health continued to decline, until he passed away, 
April 9, 1895. 

"His funeral was held in St. Thomas church. New York, of 
which he had been for many jears a warden, and his remains 
were deposited in Greenwood Cemetery."

Mr. Howard came to this country with his father about 1830, 
settling in Ann Arbor, Mich. In 1847 he removed to Hartford 
and organized the Merchant's Insurance Co. "When the great 
St. Louis fire of 1849 fell heavily upon Insurance companies it 
was seriously proposed to let them die as failures. Mr. Howard 
resisted this idea, and at his own request he braved the cholera

in St. Louis and proceeded to settle the losses. His appearance 
there with mone}' inspired the people with great confidence in 
Hartford insurance." 

He took an active part in politics from earl}^ manhood, and 
was called "the Father of the Republican party" in Hartford, 
and was the first Internal Revenue Collector in Connecticut, and 
devised the system for collections. 

Mr. Howard's personal life was deserving the highest admira- 
tion. He was controlled by a genuine sense of honor. He was 
an attendant of the Asylum Hill Congregational church, and his 
life was an uninterrupted expression of Christian courtesy and 
principle. His example has always been on the side of right.

Special thanks are due Mrs. Coe, for facts concerning her

Clifton Mill Co., and soon became prominently identified with 
the public interests of the community ; he was the originator of 
the Borough Corporation and Water- Works ; was the leading 
organizer of the Conn. Western R. R. Co., and was the Secretary 
until his illness. He presided at the Town Centennial of August, 
1871, with dignity and ability. 

" He was gifted with a magnetism that made him a natural 
leader, and secured the warm attachment of friends and admirers.

5. Thomas, son of John 1, and Mary (Hart) Lee born at 
Farmington, August 1671, married, first, Lydia Benton, of Hart- 
ford. They had twin children who died in infancy and the mother 
died soon after — about 1700. He married second, Feb. 11, 1707, 
Mary Camp of Hartford. She died March 22, 1722 ; married 
third, EHzabeth Hubbard who died March 23, 1733 ; married 
fourth, Widow Martha Howard of Windsor. He "owned the 
covenant" July 11, 1708. 

In 1697, it was voted that he and four others have "liberty to 
build them a seat over the short girt at y*^ easterly end of y*^ gal- 
lery, on the condition that they do not damnify the other seats in 
the meeting-house." 

He was a mason by trade, and a Sergeant in the Farmington 
Train Band, by which title he is alluded to in the public records. 
He was appointed Constable by the General Court, an office of 
note at that time, and considered as the "right arm of the law." 
By the many transfers found on record, it is evident that he was 
an extensive land holder in Farmington, New Britain, Southing- 
ton, Bristol and Avon. He died Sept. 26, 1740. 

Administration was granted Dec. 2, 1740 on the "estate of Ser- 
geant Thomas Lee" to his eldest son Jared, with his brother

Historical Society's rooms, Hartford. Married second, Elizabeth 
Hall, Sept. 14, 1775. 

He went to Southington parish to reside about 1734, on land 
deeded to him by his father Thomas. It may interest some of 
his descendants to note the verbosit}' of language in ancient 
deeds, of which the following is an extract : 

"Know all men by these presents, that I, Thomas Lee of Farming- 
ton in the Colony of Conn, in New England, for consideration of Sixty 
pounds in use as money, received to my full satisfaction of my son 
Jared Lee * * * together with my parental love and good affec-

The land conveyed included a large portion of the present borough

*The year of his birth has usuaUy been published as 1712, but this is an error, as 
found by his son Seth Lee's records, and also by his tombstone.

FOURTH GENERATION. 211 

He was "admitted to full communion" May 7, 1736, and his 
wife Rhoda to the same, June 12, 1737. 

He appears to have assumed a prominent position at an early 
day. In 1743 he was commissioned as Ensign, and in 1748 as 
" Captain of 2nd Company ;" chosen deacon of the church March 
17, 1751, a position which he held till his death in 1780; was 
"prominent in all church affairs," and, though sometimes con- 
sidered unyielding, and perhaps at times a little obstinate, he 
seemed to be usually found on the winning side in all con- 
troversies. 

Nov. 12, 1752, on his forty-first birthday, he deeds to the society, 
"for forty pounds money, a parsell of land containinge one acre, 
to sit a meeting house upon ;" in another deed of same date, "for 
twelve pounds old tenor money, a strip of land on which to build 
Sabbath Housen." The church was completed in 1757. The 
interior is well represented by a cut of the New Britain church. 
(See page 171.) 

In 1751, he was appointed by the General Court, a Justice of 
the Peace for the parish of Southington, the first for the parish, 
an office which he held continuously till May i, 1780. A portion 
of his dockets are still in existence, and in possession of a great 
grandson, Leonard Lee, of Kenosha, Wis., (1897). He was a 
Representative to the General Court 1754-60-61. At a meeting 
called in 1779, to take steps to organize the town of Southington, 
" Jared Lee, Esq., was made Moderator as a tribute of respect, 
being the most prominent man in the town." — Tcnun Records. 

Besides his official business, he was engaged in farming, mer- 
chandising and keeping a hotel. 

He is represented as tall and dignified, dressed in colonial 
style, with three cornered hat, and presented a figure command- 
ing respect, and whom the children regarded with awe. He 
filled so many positions of trust that the people called him "all 
Southington." It was also said that he was "a very homely and 
a very silent man." He died on Wednesday, Aug. 2, 1780. 

"The offices which he sustained as a minister of justice, dea- 
con, a representative of the town, a member of society, and 
head of a family, he filled with honor, and supported with the 
character of a Christian." (Monument, Oak Hill Cemetery.) 

The greater portion of his estate, was disposed of by will, 
dated Feb. 28, 1780, of which the preliminary was as follows : 

" In the name of God, Amen. I, Jared Lee, of Southington, in the 
County of Hartford, in the State of Connecticut, this 2Sth day of 
February, A.D., 1780, being weak in body, but of perfect mind and

was also a teacher of music. A hand-made singing book of his 
is still in existence, and in possession of a great-grandson, Hon. 
William Wallace Lee of Meriden, (1897,) on the cover of which 
is written in a bold and elegant hand: "Thomas Lee. His 
Singing Book. Anno Domini 1752." His descendants have 
inherited more than an average talent for vocal music. His 
name is found on the pay-rolls of the French war as Fourth 
Corporal, enlisted April 6, 1758, served 8 weeks, 5 days, paid 
^15-io-g}^, Capt. Jonathan Lattomore's Co., Col. Eleazer 
Fitch's Regiment. He was an ardent patriot during the Revolu- 
tionary War. Being too old to join the army himself, he sent 
two sons, and melted the leaden weights of his clock to furnish 
bullets. He died on Jan. 11, 1806. His wife died several years

15. Dr. Ebenezer, son of Thomas 5, and Elizabeth (Hub- 
bard ) Lee, third wife of his father, born at Farmington Oct. 29, 
1727, married June 20, 1750, Abigail Bull, niece and adopted dau. 
of Dr. Jonathan Bull of Hartford. She was the fourth generation 
from Capt. Thomas Bull, who came to New England in 1635, 
and soon after came to Hartford. His lot was in the south part 
of the town plot. Capt. Thomas 2, Martin ^, Abigail 1 

He studied medicine with Dr. Bull, and was a successful phy- 
sician at Farmington, — "a man firm in his convictions of duty." 

There is a prevalent opinion among some of his descendants 
that he was born at Canaan, but this is evidently an error. First, 
his parents never lived at Canaan, but lived and died at Farm- 
ington. Second, when left an orphan at the age of 13, his elder 
brother Joseph, was appointed his guardian, "Dec. 10, 1741," 
with Jared as bondsman in £200, and all described as of Farm- 
ington, in the probate records, to be seen in Hartford. Third, 
two infants of his, which died in 1753 and 1756, were buried in 
Farmington. Fourth, land records describe him, in various tran- 
sactions, as of Farmington as late as April 12, 1772, and local 
histories mention him as a successful physician, as late as 1777. 
Fifth, Canaan was not settled till 1754, ^^^^ ^'^st white man there

being Isaac Lawrence. Sixth, his name first appears on the 
Canaan land records in' 1777. He sold his homestead in 1781, 
and moved away. 

At the outbreak of the Revolutionary war, Dr. Lee remained firm 
in his loyalty to the crown, conscientiously believing that the 
colonies had no just cause for declaring themselves independent 
of the mother countr}', but declined to take any action against his 
countrymen. 

After the close of the war, he removed to Canada. His 
son, William Hooker, removed with the family, and from 
him are descended most of the Canadian Lees of this branch. 
Ebenezer, Jr., joined the Continental Army. Dr. Lee died 
suddenly from rheumatism, with which he had long been 
afflicted. May 9, 181 1, aged 84. At the time of his death 
he and his son, William Hooker, were living on adjoining 
farms, in a locality then known as Burford Gore, about eight 
miles south from Brantford, Ontario. His wife died January 11, 
1812, aged 84. Their graves may be seen in Oakland, a rural 
cemetery in the vicinity, indicated by "two twin oaks," (i8g6).

March 31, 1736, married Sept. 3, 1767, Sarah dau. of Rev. Jona- 
than Ingersoll, of Ridgefield, Conn., born Oct. 28, 1741. She 
died Sunday, July 15, 1770, buried in the family lot, Farmington; 
married, second, Sept. 9, 1771, Joanna, dau. of Daniel Johnson, 
Esq., of Wallingford, Conn., born April 4, 1743. She died at 
Lewis, N. Y. , Sept. 3, 1818, aged 75. On her tombstone is 
the following : 

" AU you that read with little care, 
And g-o away and leave me here ; 
Don't you forg-et that you must die, 
And be entombed as well as I." 

He graduated at Yale College, 1769. His diploma, written in 
Latin, is still in existence (1897), dated, " Die Septembris Duo- 
decimo, MDCCLIX," and signed "Thomas Clap, Pres't. " It is 
in possession of Miss Ella E. Lee, a great-granddaughter, living 
at Lewis, Essex County, N. Y. He served as tutor there four 
years. "One class gave him a gold ring as a token of respect," 
which is still in existence, (1897.) Another class gave him a 
"morning gown," of the richest goods of the day, besides other 
testimonials of respect. He afterwards studied theology with 
Rev. Dr. Bellamy, and was licensed to preach; "supplied" 
several pulpits, and received several "calls," but does not seem 
to have ever accepted a charge. He also studied medicine, and 
his name is found on the State records of the Revolutionary war, 
as having received pay for hospital services. "Seth Lee, Farm- 
ington, allowed ^3-10-8^, July 26, 1775." 

His father gave him a "five acre lot in Farmington 25 rods 
north of the meeting-house;" there he " kept tavern " and an 
apothecary's store. In a Hartford paper dated May 16, 1774, he 
advertises " a neat and general assortment of drugs and medi- 
cines." In 1788-go, he deeds to his brother Timothy and 
others, land in Southington, which he had inherited from his 
father's estate, and in 1795 advertises for sale, "A house lot 
about 20 rods north of the meeting-house in Farmington, con- 
taining near four acres of excellent land, with dwelling house 
and barn with other out-houses, and orchard of about 70 trees of 
the best fruit, — the house 46x20 and a kitchen 28x30 feet, with a 
cellar under the whole, well accommodated for tavern, merchant

or tradesman." Jan. i8, 1796, he advertises an auction of various 
articles, and Feb. 26, 1796 deeds to John and Chauncey Deming, 
"four acres containing house and barn, located on west side of 
the street, extending from highway to Farmington River," and 
June 2 of the same year took his departure for Ludlow, Vt., where 
he located upon land of which he was the original owner, having 
obtained the grant from Benning Wentworth, the British 
Governor of New Hampshire. 

Among other grants found on the records of Ludlow, Vt., under 
date of Sept. 16, 1761, and subject to certain conditions of settle- 
ment, are the following : Jared Lee, Esq., Seth Lee, Amos Lee, 
Timothy Lee, Joseph Lee, William Lee and others of Farming- 
ton, Conn. — tracts of 500 acres each. 

First sale recorded, — Eber Gilbert of Hamden, New Haven Co., 
Conn., to Seth Lee, "One half of lot * * * on west side 
of s'l Lot, &c.," for £150, June 13, 1795. Joseph Crary surveys 
for " Dea. Seth Lee, 173 acres on his own original right," Nov- 
6, 1790. Also surveyed by the same, Sept. 27, 1795, 130 acres 
"on his own original right." Various transfers both to, and from 
him are found on record. 

He used here his influence and talents to establish a religious 
and moral state of society. He was interested in genealogy and 
for many years kept records, not only of the Lee family, but of 
the Hart and Judd families and also of the Ingersoll and Johnson 
families from which his first and second wives were descended. 
These records, commencing in 1761 and continued till his death, 
are still in existence in a dilapidated form in the possession of 
the heirs of William H. Lee of New York, and have furnished 
data which could not have been otherwise obtained. He died at 
Ludlow, Vt. , Feb. 17, 1803. Children:

The records name her " Hannah," but "mis-baptized and called

Soon after the Revolutionary war, he sold his farm and mill, re- 
ceiving therefor Continental currency, which afterwards proved 
worthless. May 4, 1781, he-deeds to Timothy, his brother, land 
inherited from his father's estate, in Southington, and names 
himself as of Simsburj^ During the French war, he served on 
one expedition to Canada, enlisting April 23, 1759 — Capt. Joel 
Clark, 2d Conn. Reg't, and was drafted into the Revolutionary 
army on three different occasions, but of the nature of his military 
operations we have no records. 

In 1791, he removed with his family to Whitesboro, Oneida 
County, N. Y., and subsequently to Sangerfield, in the same 
county, then an almost unbroken wilderness of heavy timber.

Revolution. She died July 22, 1822. 

He remained in his father's service ten years after becoming 
21, having the principal charge of his father's business. He was 
frequently elected to positions of honor and trust, and like his 
grandfather and great-grandfather, held the office of constable, 
which was still an office of importance. 

At the time of the Lexington alarm he was one of the "minute 
men" who marched for Boston on short notice, and remained 
during the summer. He was again in service in and about New 
York in the fall of 1776, and was absent when his daughter Lucy 
was born, Sept. 18. After his father's death he succeeded to the 
homestead and to his father's business of farming, merchandizing 
and hotel keeping. Himself and both wives were members of 
the Congregational Church. He died Oct. i, 1813, and was buried 
in Oak Hill Cemetery. His will was dated March 20, 1807, with 
a codicil June 11, 1810. After having disposed of ^1000 to his 
daughters and in various other bequests, he divides the remainder 
of his estate among his sons. Inventory amounted to $22,762.43^

dered about Crown Point and northern New York ; mustered out 
Nov. 2g, 1761 ; service, thirty-three weeks and six days ; paid,

regiment died of yellow fever. Mustered out Dec. 4, 1762, ser- 
vice, thirty-seven weeks and six days ; paid, ;^i8-i8-63<j^. 

In the spring of 1766 he made an extensive purchase of land at 
Castleton, Vt. Arriving there in June of that year he made some 
preliminary improvements, and spent the following winter in a 
log hut constructed with his own hands, with no company but the 
red men. 

On the breaking out of the Revolutionary War he took an 
active part in the military operations at, and about Ticonderoga, 
in conjunction with Col. Ethan Allen, raising a company of "Green 
Mountain Boys " at his own expense ; which was afterwards 
refunded to him in continental currency, worth two and a half 
cents on the dollar. He soon after enlisted into the Continental 
army, serving much of his time under Washington — was commis- 
sioned Captain, June 9, 1777. He continued in the army till the 
close of the war in 1783, participating in the battles of Brandy- 
wine, Trenton, Germantown and Monmouth, besides many 
others ; was also at the siege of Yorktown, and surrender of Lord 
Cornwallis, and after the close of the war was promoted Colonel

Some years after the war, he removed to Penn., and from there 
to Granby, Oswego Count}', N. Y. A descendant says of him : 

"A man of medium size, high, broad forehead, prominent over 
the eyes, rather large nose, clear, bright blue eyes, very straight 
and light of step, had a wonderful sense of order, and was a 
Yankee in the best sense of the word — joined the Methodist 
Church, at Fulton, N. Y., not many years before he died, and 
believed in universal salvation. In his older years, he retained 
a very youthful appearance, his hair being but slightly frosted. 
He carried a cane under his arm." He died Oet. 29, 1837, aged

49. Dr. William Hooker, son of Dr. Ebenezer 15, and 
Abigail (Bull) Lee, born in Connecticut, Feb. 10, 1761 ; married 
in 1787, Phebe Davis, born in Reading, Conn. " She was the dau. 

of Mr. Davis, who at the Anglo-American Revolution took 

up arms in favor of England, — was captured and imprisoned 
three years, and then escaped to Canada." William Hooker was 
a much esteemed physician. After the Revolutionary War, he 
resided, as will be seen b}' the birth of his children, in various 
places, — in Vermont, New York, and Pennsylvania, and ultimately 
removed to Canada about 1796, and settled in Niagara District, 
practicing at Chippewa. 

He bought two adjoining farms in Oakland township, a few 
miles south from Brantford, Ont., July 8, 1809. This purchase 
was the third transfer from the Crown in 1802, and described as 
"Lot 8 — 4th concession." One farm was occupied by himself 
and the other by his parents. After the death of his father they 
were sold to Jacob Keifer, Feb. 7, 18 12. He then removed to 
Southwold, London District — now County of Elgin — where were

residing American relatives. "Dr. Lee visited his native State, 
Connecticut, in 1828. He rode from Southwold, Ont. on horse- 
back, and spent the winter among relatives and friends. On his 
return in March, 1829, when only four miles from home, his horse 
slipped and fell upon him, causing such injuries that he lived but 
eight days." 

The records of Litchfield County, Conn., show that he and his 
brother, Ebenezer, Jr., from N. Y., joined in a deed conveying 
land during that winter, which is supposed to have been a part of 
the parental estate which had, for many years, remained unsold. 
He died March 30, 1829, aged 68. His wife afterwards lived in 
London, Ont., where she died Dec. 15, 1853, aged 82, and was

147. Dr. Hiram Davis, son of Dr. William Hooker 49, and 
Phebe (Davis) Lee, born Nov. 20, 1791, near Albany, N. Y., 
married 1818, Anne Terry, (dau. of Parshall Terry and Rhoda 
Skinner, "a United Empire loyalist of Erie District, and mem- 
ber of the first Parliament of Canada ;" "was a Lieutenant in the 
Butler Rangers in the Revolutionary War, and fought on the 
King's side from 1776 to 1781, when they were disbanded.") 

Dr. Lee was a ph3'sician of high standing. While a medical 
student, he acted as surgeon to the British troops in the Anglo- 
American War of 1812-15, at Chippewa and Lundy's Lane ; 
afterwards, practiced medicine at Southwold, Chippewa, Niagara 
and London. "At the latter place, he was the Government 
medical officer. He died Oct. 29, 1847, during an epidemic of 
typhus fever, owing to his indefatigable exertions to attend his 
patients most carefully. He was a man of talent, and esteemed 
for his unblemished and upright character. 

"As a mark of respect, the shops in London were closed 
during his funeral. A long and steady practice in this part of 
the upper Provinces gave him an acquaintance with all classes, 
in whose homes he was a welcome visitor. His offerings of 
service were free to many of his poorer patients. Compassion 
was a prominent trait in his character." — Extract from the 
'■'■ Church Neivspaper,''' October, 18 ^y, Lofidon, Ont. 

" In another column will be found the obituary of an able and 
intrepid physican. Dr. Lee, whose self-sacrifice on the altar of 



266 DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS, 

duty, well deserves to be classed in the ranks of martyrdom. 
The bereavement which society at large suffers, from the loss of 
such a man as Dr. Lee, is one of the most afflicting features of 
this fearful disease, which has been brought into the province by 
the late unhealthy immigration." 

Anne Ferry, the widow of Dr. Lee, after his death, lived at 
Byron. "She was a pious and charitable lady, and the chief 
contributor towards the building of an Episcopal Church, in that 
village. At the suggestion of Bishop Cronyn, it was called St. 
Anne, out of respect to Mrs. Lee." She died at Laporte, Ind., 
while on a visit to her daughter, Mrs. Daly, Dec. 21, 1874, and 
was buried there. Children :

Mary Caughell, of Yarmouth, Ont., in 1817. He went to Canada 
with his parents when a child. During the Canadian Rebellion, 
m 1836-7, " he was arrayed against the government on the rebel 
side, which was under the leadership of Wm. Lyon McKenzie, 
and against his brothers, who were Tory sympathizers "—was 
arrested and imprisoned with others at London, Ont., some of 
whom were convicted of treason and executed. He was never 
brought to trial, but was hberated and restored to citizenship. 

" It is a matter of record, that questions tending towards relief, 
which were agitated at that time, were, later, incorporated into 
the demands made by the people for reforms in governmental 
affairs, and that the liberal form of government, now enjoyed 
throughout the Dominion is, in a measure, largely due to their 
efforts." He died at Westminster, Ont., Sept. 25, 1857. His

Avenue, on Saturday, 22d inst. She was the daughter of Dr. 
William Hooker Lee, a United Empire Loyalist, born in Conn. 
He jfirst saw the light of day in 1761. After passing his examina- 
tion, came to Chippewa with his father, where he practiced his 
profession, and later moved to Southwold. Mrs. Lawrason re- 
moved to London, three years after her father's death, and was 
married to her late husband. At that time, the present site of 
London, was occupied by only three or four families. She had 
suffered the many trials to which pioneers were subjected, and 
saw the little hamlet grow in size and population. The advance- 
ment of the place was ever the great object of Mr. and Mrs. 
LawTason's life, and through their efforts the city rapidly grew. 
Mrs. Lawrason was an active worker in St. Paul's Cathedral, and 
was one of the principal contributors to the cost of erecting the 
little frame building, which was first used as a place of worship 
by the Anglicans of London. The structure was destroyed by 
fire, and Mr. and Mrs. Lawrason were the first to move for the 
erection of a new building. 

"The funeral services were held at St. Paul's Cathedral, and 
were attended by most of the principal citizens. The officiating 
clergymen were, Bishop Baldwin, Arch-deacon Marsh, and the 
Very Rev. Dean Innes." — Extract from Ohituary. Children :

dent of Meridtin since 1S62. The "Illustrated Biography," 1891, 
says of him : He represented Meriden in the General Assembly 
of 1885 and 1886, and was assigned to important committees 
each year. 

He introduced a resolution, which was carried without a dis- 
senting voice, to publish such military records as were in the 
State Archives, from the early Wars down to the close of the 
Mexican War —records of the Confederate War having been 
previously published. The result was the publication of a large 
quarto volume which was ordered to be supplied to every Town 
Clerk's Office, and all Public Libraries in the State. 

He served four years on the Board of Aldermen of Meriden, 
and held other positions of note. He was a delegate to the first 
Republican Convention held in the State in 1856 — was a Free- 
soiler in 1848 — voted for Lincoln in i860 and 1864, and has 
never missed an opportunity to cast a vote for equal rights, tem- 
perance and good morals. 

" He is one of the most widely known Secret Society representa- 
tives in the State ; was a member of the Sons of Temperance at 
iS years of age, and eventually held every office in the Order, and 
for 35 years was connected with the National Organization ; was 
Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows in 1877 and 
1878. His Masonic career was commenced in 1852 ; was Knighted 
in St. Elmo Commandery in Meriden in 1874 ; Grand Master of 
the State in 1874 ^^^ ^^75- Prior to that, he held the office of 
Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter in the State (1872-3), 
and for 12 years was President of the Masonic Veteran Association. 
"During the war, he was a Lieutenant in the State Militia and 
enlisted for service in the army, but was rejected for physical 
disability. At the Barkhamsted Centennial Celebration, 1879, 
he delivered the historical address, and was compiler of the pub- 
lished proceedings. He is descended from two grandfathers, and 
two great-grandfathers of Revolutionary service, and is one of 
the charter members of the ' Sons of the American Revolution,' 
and was a delegate to the National body which met at Hartford, 
in i8gi." He is also Secretary of the " Lee Association" (1897), 
which was organized in 1884, and compiler of the published pro- 
ceedings of the first general family meeting of the descendants of 
John Lee. He has been deeply interested in collecting statistics 
of the descendants, freely expending both time and money in his 
efforts, and has succeeded in searching out families, of which all 
trace has been lost for nearly a century. Children :

DESCENDANTS OF DAVID, 



FOURTH SON OF 

JOHN LEE 1 

Lebanon, Covcnt ry. 2d Gen. 

6. Daviu, youngest son of John ^ and Mar}^ (Hart) Lee, was 
born at Farmington, in 1674. On the marriage of his mother to 
Jedediah Strong, Jan. 5, 1692, he, aged iS, and his youngest 
sister, Tabitha, aged 16, accompanied her to Northampton, Mass., 
which was his future home for many years. He was a weaver by 
trade ; married Lydia Strong, dau. of his stepfather, Sept. 5, 
1695, born Nov. 9, 1675. Her mother was Freedom Woodward, 
dau. of Henry, of Dorchester, Mass., and afterwards of 
Northampton, where he was one of the " Pillars of the Church." 

David removed with his family to Coventry, Conn., in 1709, in 
company with others from Northampton, who were among the 
first settlers of the town, which, however, was not incorporated 
till 171 1. His wife died July 16, 1718. He married for his 

second wife, May 27, 1719, Elizabeth (name illegible on 

the records of Coventry). He removed to Lebanon about 1729, 
and was admitted to "full communion" in the Church, Feb. 28, 
1731. "He was regarded as a man of eminent godliness." 

Jan. 28, 1728-9, "in consideration of a deed of exchange for 
land in Coventry," John Lyman deeds to him by quit claim deed, 
"all my farm or lot of land, lying and being in Lebanon 
at a place called Lebanon Village * * * bounded north- 
easterly on y^ street that goeth through y*^ village, northwesterly 
on land of Mr. Cushman, southwesterly on land of Ebenezer 
Gillett, and southeasterly by land of s^ Gillett and Isaac Bailey." 
No length of lines, nor number of acres is given. 

Aug. 15, 1737, he deeds the same land with the same description 
to his son David, in exchange for land in Coventry. A thorough

He was a farmer at Willington, where he died in 1748. His 
property was inventoried at ^925-13. His wife and eldest son,

Willington, guardian to Oliver, Zebulon and Simon, sons of 
Jedediah, prayed for the distribution of the estate, according to 
will of deceased, viz. : To Josiah, Jedediah deceased, (or his legal 
representatives,) Oliver, Zebulon and Simon, children of de- 
ceased." He was appointed guardian of the minor children July 
3, 1750. The date of Lucee's death has not been ascertained, but 
Elias, admr. of her estate, presented to court an inventory for 
£177-6-6, June 13, 1750.

1775-6, in '.)th Co., 4th Reg't ; also in the 
regular army, 1777 to 1780; was at the 
battle of Grermantown and other engage-

went up into Massachusetts, since which 
time all trace has been lost ; nothing is 
known about his family.

We have no means of ascertaining the 
identity of this John Lee ; Josiah's name 
is found on the pay rolls of the French 
War; received in 1756, £5-17-4, for twelve 
weeks and five days' service ; also, 1759, 
received £15 3 5i for thirty-five weeks

quite young, and died before the distri-

which would have fallen to him. His 
name is found on the rolls of the army in 
the French War, 1757; the name of one 
of his sons, Jedediah 3d, is found in the 
revolutionary records ; was at the battle 
of AVhite Plains, Oct. 28, 1776; discharged 
Dec. 25, 1776.

Nothing is known of this family except what is here stated. 
Oliver's name is found on the records of East Windsor, with 
family, but nothing farther is known. A very aged man 
named Zebulon Lee, died at Granville, Washington Co., N. Y., 
"sometime in the 30's," supposed to be the person in question. 
Families by the name Lee are living in the vicinity, but none 
can connect with this Zebulon. 

Vigorous efforts have been made to discover a connecting link, 
but without success ; they, like several other families, have dis- 
appeared, leaving no trace behind.

May 22, 1733, and he received, as an heir of his mother, who died 
in 1718, £9-9 as his fuir share of the estate, Sept. 27, 1733. He

to Lebanon, Conn., she became an inmate of the family of Rev. 
Thomas Clapp, of Windham, and went with him to New Haven 
when he was chosen president of Yale College, and there made 
the acquaintance of Mr. Lee, when a student. "She had no 
dowry but her personal charms and Christian graces, and a decent 
suit of clothes ; without a table or chairs they kept house and 
lived happily in a blacksmith shop : but religion can soften every 
hardship and relieve the bitter cup." She died Feb. 22, 1762. 

On the occasion of his marriage he delivered an address to his 
bride and parents of much eloquence and tenderness, which was 
published in the American Monthly Magazine, the official organ of 
the Daughters of the American Revolution, July, 1895, the copy 
being furnished by Miss Florence Lee, of Buffalo, N. Y., a 
descendant of the 5th generation from him. 

"He graduated at Yale College in 1742, read Divinity with his 
pastor. Rev. Elisha Williams, and in 1744, settled as a minister at 
Salisbury, on a salary of £45, 'lawful money,' which was never 
increased. The town was then new ; the inhabitants few in num- 
ber and weak in strength." There were but iS English families 
in the place, and his church, when organized, consisted of but 
1 1 members. A part of his salary was paid in produce instead 
of "lawful money." They were too poor to keep a horse, and 
he drew his wood home on a hand sled, and frequently carried 
his bushel of wheat to Lamb's mill on his back. 

When he and his wife arrived in Salisbury in 1744, their house 
was unfinished, and they took up their abode in one end of a 
blacksmith shop, with stools for chairs, and a table constructed 
of slabs. Their house, when completed, was a log structure 
24x30 feet, and was used, temporarily, as a place of worship. In 
this log house he was ordained Nov. 23, 1744 ; a new edifice for 
worship was raised March 28 and 29, 1749 ; the " raising " occupied 
two days. It had been voted by the society "that 16 gallons 
rhum be furnished, and 8 bushels rhy to be made into cake for

the occasion." This building, modified for the purpose, is still 
doing service for a town hall, (1897). 

In 1746, the Assembly "advised the committee to build a fort 
in the northwest part of Salisbury, including the house of Rev. 
Jonathan Lee," for protection against the Indians. 

His name is found on State records as having been appointed 
chaplain March, 1756, for an expedition in the French war, oper- 
ating about Crown Point. The homestead remained in the family 
three or four generations, when it passed into other hands. One 
of his descendants laments the disappearance of valuable papers 
at that time, which would have afforded light on many subjects 
which are obscure at the present day. The house was still stand- 
ing a few years since. 

The following incidents, selected from the Co)i)iCitiiUt Coi/raiif 
of the last century, may interest his descendants : Among others 
who escaped from jail in Litchfield County, Jan. 25, 1772, was 
one "John Brown, who was committed for breaking open the 
house of Rev. Mr. Lee, of Salisbury ; a short thick fellow, 5 ft. 
4 in. high, 22 years of age, has been twice cropt and branded." 
Ten dollars reward was offered for his return by Lynde Lord, 
Sheriff, Litchfield, Jan. 26, 1772. ( Conned icui Courant, Jan. 28, 
1772). Hartford, Feb. 25, 1772. — " At the Supreme Court held 
at Litchfield, the nth inst., came on the trial of the notorious 
John Brown, for the third offence of burglary, (Rev. Mr. Lee's 
house), when, after a lengthy hearing, both on the part of the 
crown and the prisoner, the case was committed to the jury, who, 
after consultation of three days, returned with a verdict oi guilty, 
whereupon a sentence of death was passed upon him, which is to 
be executed the first of July, next." {Connecticut Courant, Feb. 
25, 1772). 

"Twenty Dollars Reward. — Broke out of Litchfield jail on the 
nightafter the 3dof Mar. , 1772, the notorious burglar, John Brown, 
lately condemned, and received sentence of death ; has been twice 
cropt and branded. The above reward will be paid, &c., b}' 
Lynde Lord, Sheriff." {Connecticut Courant, March 5, i']']2). 

"Hartford, June g, 1772. — A petition was presented to the As- 
sembly, and the execution of John Brown was put off till Dec. 
2nd, next." 

"Broke out of jail on the night after the 14th inst., the 
burglarious John Brown, under sentence of death for house break- 
ing He has been cropt and branded ***** Who- 
ever shall return him shall receive Ten Dollars Reward." 

Lynde Lord, Sheriff.

John is again advertised for breaking jail, March 24, 1773 ; jQ2> 
reward offered by L3nde Lord, Sheriff. It is evident from this 
that he was not executed Dec. 2, 1772. 

Simsbury, June 6, 1775. — He is again advertised for breaking 
out of Newgate prison. "Three pounds in paper bills of the 
Colon}' " offered for his return. 

Aug. 28, 1775 — John Brown is again advertised for breaking 
out of Newgate prison, and is again described as having been 
"branded and both ears crop'd." Jolm then disappears from 
the columns of the Coura/it. 

Mr. Lee married for his second wife, Nov. 1762, Widow Love 
Brinkerhoff, of Fishkiil, N. Y. (dau. of Rev. John Graham, of 
Edinburgh, Scotland, who first settled at Exeter, N. H., as a

Rev. Mr. Lee died Oct. 8, 1788, aged 70 years, after having 
been forty-four years in the ministry, at SaHsbury, " leaving six 
sons and four daughters, all of whom followed his bier to the 
grave." His headstone is still standing (1896), on which he is 
represented in wig and gown, in preaching attitude in his pulpit. 
In bringing up his bOys, he gave every other one an education, 
and every other one a farm. The former were Jonathan, Elisha 
and Chauncey ; the latter were Samuel, Milo and Robert. 

It is on record that he purchased 500 acres of land for ^2,500 
<'A//<'7/6'/', equivalent to about =£500, "lawful mone}'." It is probable 
that the farms for the sons were carved out of this tract. He is 
named in Yale records as one of the wealthy ministers of New 
England. His second wife died at the home of her son, Rev. 
Chauncey, at Colebrook, Dec. 22, 1820, at the age of 88 years. 

It will be observed that all the descendants of David ist, of 
whom we have any knowledge at the present time, are through 
Rev. Jonathan, his youngest son.

23. David, son of David 10, and Mary (Tilden) Lee, and 
third generation in succession bearing the name, born at Coventry, 

Jan. 17, 1739, married Tabitha (name illegible on the 

records). His name is found on record as having enlisted in an 
expedition against the French. March 28, 1758; served thirty- 
seven v^eeks and two days ; received ^^16-15-7. It is highly 
probable that he moved to Mass. with his father's family, before 
1762. He resided at Becket and was a school teacher there, 
about 1770; was in the Revolutionary Army, his name being 
found in the Berkshire Co. records. His name is also found on 
the town records from 1765 to 1777, serving as Selectman ; was 
on various committees, and holding other town offices. His 
name disappears after 1777, but it is found that he moved to 
Manchester, Vt., and was a judge of court in Bennington Co.' 
and resigned in 17S3 (Vt. Hist. Records). Some of his descend- 
ants were there as late as 1815-20, since which time all trace has 
been lost. It is the old story, "Moved West," leaving no trace.

Joseph Allen, of Northampton, Mass. " Rev. Thomas Allen, of 
Pittsfield, and Miss Elizabeth Lee, of Salisbury, intend marriage, 
Jan. 30, 1768," (Pittsfield Records). The marriage for some 
reason was postponed till Feb. 18, and is so recorded : 

"Salisbury, Feb. 19, 1768, yesterday p. m., the Rev. Mr. Thomas 
Allen, of Pittsfield, in the I'rovinee of Massachusetts Bay, was mar- 
ried to Miss Elizabeth Lee, the amiable Daughter of Rev. Mr.

Mr. Allen, "was a man of great energy and industry in his 
ministry at Pittsfield for forty-six years. He was a man of ver\' 
positive ideas and principles ; very zealous in the Revolutionary 
War, a leader in party politics of the Jeffersonian school. " He 
was at the battle of Bennington, Aug. 16, 1777, and gives an in-

in the winter of 1775-6, went with Gen. Benedict Arnold to the 
siege of Quebec, and died in that city of small pox, March 14, 
1776. She died Dec. 24, 1857. 

He was a farmer by occupation, living three miles north of the 
village. During the Revolutionary War, he was an active patriot. 
In the Colonial Records of May, 1777, is found: "This assem- 
bly do establish Samuel Lee to be Quartermaster of a troop of 
horse, in the 5th Reg't of Light Horse in this State"; May, 1778. 
"Samuel Lee of Salisbury is made Lieut, of 2d Troop, 5th Reg't, 
of Horse" (Col. Rec. Vol. i, p. 272). The public records are 
incomplete, and the exact nature of his active service cannot now 
be ascertained. The records show, however, that his troop was 
often called into service for State defence, and his name appears 
among the commissioned officers. Service also, appears to have 
been rendered along the Hudson, and down as far as New York. 
His commission as Captain, dated Oct. 30, 1783, was signed by 
Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, and is in the possession of a grandson, 
Rev. Hamilton Lee, of Martinez, California ( i8g6), who has also 
a letter written by him to his wife, when in the army, dated 
Fishkill, N. Y., Nov. 18, 1776, and other papers of interest. His 
cavalry pistols are in possession of other grandsons, Samuel B., 
Jr., and John W. N. Lee, of Duplex, Tenn., and his sword is 
said to be in possession of some of the family. In 1774, Capt. 
Lee was appointed one of a committee to carry into effect certain 
resolutions passed by the Continental Congress ; in 17S1, he was 
one of a committee to encourage enlistments. After the war he 
served many years as Justice of the Peace, and in other public 
offices, and was a Representative eleven times, from 1788 to i8og. 
In 1803, was one of a committee to manage the public library, 
and was prominent in all public affairs. He died Sept. 3, 1829,

bury, married, first, Abigail, dan. of Capt. Joshua Stanton, of 
Burlington, Vt. She died in 1S05. He married, second, in Feb. 
1807, Mrs. Olive Spencer, widow of Alexander Spencer, of 
Amenia, N. Y. , born Aug. 9, 1774, and dau. of Jared Harrison, 
of Salisbury. He was a graduate of Yale College in 1784 ; studied 
law at Litchfield, and practiced for a time in his native town, but 
after entering upon a religious life, gave up the legal profession, 
studied theology with Rev. Dr. West, of Stockbridge, Mass., and 
was licensed to preach June 3, 1789. In the same year the 
church at Salisbury made application for him to preach as a 
candidate for the place left vacant by the death of his father the 
previous year, but failed to secure his services. A new church 
edifice was dedicated at Salisbury some years later, at which he 
preached the dedication sermon. Columbia College of N. Y. , 
bestowed upon him the degree of D. D. in 1823. He was settled 
at Sunderland, Vt., in 1790, where he remained seven years ; then 
spent three years at Lansingburg and Hudson, N. Y., as a 
teacher and occasional preacher ; was installed at Colebrook, 
Conn., in Jan., 1800, and remained till Feb., 1827. 

His second wife died Jan. 5, 1818. He married for his third 
wife, Oct. 15, 1818, Mrs. Rebecca Haines, widow of a Virginia 
gentleman, and dau. of Col. Samuel Green, of New London ; "a 
lady of cultivated manners and refined taste." 

From Colebrook he went to Marlboro', where he was the 
settled pastor from Nov., 1828, to Jan., 1837. For the last few 
years of his life, he resided with his dau., Mrs. Beebe, at Hart- 
wick, N. Y., where he died Dec. 5, 1842, aged 79. "He was a 
ready writer, a sound reasoner,and an earnest speaker ; a thorough 



FITKH GENERATION. 415 

scholar, dignified in his manners, and eminent for his social 
qualities." He was the author of '' Revival Sermons," "Triumphs 
of Virtue," being a metrical paraphrase of the Book of Job, 1807 ; 
was also a composer of music, and in 1797, while a teacher, pub- 
lished an arithmetic: "Election Sermon," 1813 ; "Letter from 
Aristarcus to Philemon," 1833. 

It is related that another pastor who was settled in another 
part of the town (of Sunderland, Vt.,) o)i the same day, brought 
suit against Rev. Chauncey, to recover the possession of land set 
apart "for the first settled minister of the town," on the ground 
that his settlement was tivo )ninutes first ! and gained the suit. 
The result of the suit, however, does not seem to have been con- 
firmed, as the land in dispute subsequently came into possession 
of a gr-dau., and b}' her was sold to another party a few years 
since. Children :

COAT OF ARMS. 







The cuts for the Lee " Coat of Arms " of two different families, 
came to hand while this work was going through the press, and 
are inserted as objects of curiosity. 

As stated on a previous page, it is not known that any one 
American family is entitled to an exclusive use of either ; we 
neither claim nor disclaim the right to either, (see page 21). 



ROLL OF HONOR. 



In preparing the following list of soldiers of the early wars of 
the country, we have included none except those of whose 
service there was documentary, or other indisputable evidence. 
That there were others whose names should be included, there is 
little doubt, but positive evidence is wanting. 

The same remarks will apply to the soldiers of the later wars, 
for we are confident that a large number have not been reported. 
Relatives by marriage only, are not included. 

No attempt has been made to trace those of the Mary Lee 
Upson or Tabitha Lee Strong branches in wars later than the 
Revolution, except to insert such names as have been furnished 
and well authenticated. In several cases, service in both French 
and Revolutionary wars was not positively ascertained till too 
late to insert in the text of this work. 

The evidence of service of those in the Mary Lee Upson 
branch, whose names are not found in the text, was found in 
State records.

NOTE. 



In concluding these pages, it seems but proper to add, that 
several deficiencies were discovered, which had been overlooked, 
and which, at a late hour, it was impracticable to supply, without 
great delay. Several subscribers had paid eight months in 
advance, and it seemed unjust that they should be subjected to 
delay. It has frequently been stated by genealogists that their 
work had been fifteen or twenty, or even thirty, years in prepara- 
tion, but it seemed expedient in this case to furnish it to the 
present generation, and leave deficiencies to be supplied and addi- 
tions collected for a supplement, at some future date, if deemed 
advisable. With that object in view, the kindred are invited to 
correspond freely with the compilers of their respective branches 
or the secretary, communicating any changes or discoveries. 

The Compilers. 
Meriden, Conn., April, 1897. 



It is but justice to acknowledge the services of Miss Sarah 
Fiske Lee of New Hampshire, who spent three months in 
Meriden, at her own expense, to assist in supervising the publi- 
cation of this work. L. L.
