READ 

THE INTRODUCTION 



-AND- 



EXPLANATORY NOTES! 



It seems to be the opinion of a certain class of people that 
an Introduction is written merely to occupy a few pages in the 
first part of the book, to make it appear like other books, or, for any 
purpose except for the purpose of being read! They could not labor 
under a greater mistake, for, when they omit the introduction, 
they omit much valuable and interesting information. 

It usually contains subjects of general interest, not particularly 
connected with any single individual or family, but of interest to 
the general reader. 

Many questions have been asked the compilers by those who 
have had the Lee Book in hand from its publication in 1897, on 
subjects fully explained in the introductory notes, and were sur- 
prised on being informed where they could find their questions 
fully answered, thus showing that they had neglected that part 
of the work. 

Others have inquired the use of the figures at the commence- 
ment, and in the body of a personal paragraph, and also the use 
of a * attached to names in the family records, all of which are 
fully explained in various notes in that work, and duplicated in 
this. It is intended that nothing shall be left obscure if the 
reader will read the explanations. 

JOHN LEE. 
The circumstances of the immigration of our ancestor, John 
Lee, in 1634, and the early history of his family, as far as known, 



IV INTRODUCTION. 

are fully narrated in the genealogy of "John Lee of Farmington, 
Conn., and His Descendants," published in May, 1897, and need 
not be repeated here. 

The words, il of Farmington, Conn.,''' were inserted in the title 

in order to distinguish it in the public catalogues from '•''John Lee 

'of Ipswich, Mass." who came to this country from England, 

about the same time, and whose genealogy was published in 

1888. 

Notes of the Deacon Stephen Hart family — Mary ( Hart) Lee, 
wife of John Lee, — may also be found in the introduction of the 
same work. 

HISTORICAL- 

When the genealogy of '■'John Lee of Farmington, Conn., and 
His Descendants, " — known among those interested as the " Lee 
Book" — was published containing more than 4,000 names, it was 
estimated that there were at least 1,000 descendants of whom we 
had no account, notwithstanding the most diligent research. 

Soon after the middle of the 18th century, there seems to have 
been a large emigration from Connecticut to Vermont, and the 
Lees contributed their full quota. Governor Benning Wentworth, 
British governor of New Hampshire, by which Vermont was then 
claimed to be a part, had been liberal in making land grants as 
early as 1760. 

Among those who migrated before the close of the century, en- 
couraged by these grants, are found the names of Col. Noah Lee 
of Salisbury to Castleton in 1766, — Zebulon Lee from Willington 
to Hartland in 1770, — Daniel and Jedediah Lee, sons of Elias, — 
see p. 403-14, Lee Book, — from Willington to Pittsford, about 
1783, and about 1797. to Stanstead, Canada, — Deacon Seth Lee 
of Farmington, to Ludlow in 1796, — David Lee from Becket, 
Mass., to Manchester, 1777 to 1779, and probably others. The 
name of Josiah Lee, — p. 403-14, Lee Book, — is found on record 
in the Adj. General's office, as having performed military service 
in the Revolutionary War, although no trace of his posterity has 
been found, if he left any. There are also strong reasons to be- 
lieve that Simon, the youngest brother migrated with the others. 

HOW THEY BECAME LOST TO FRIENDS- 

At that time, transportation over a new and rugged country 
was slow and difficult and almost entirely by private conveyance. 
Mail facilities were also meager and infrequent, postage was high 



v 



INTRODUCTION. V 

and communication between friends took place only at long 
intervals. 

In time, older generations, who knew anything personally of 
kindred left in the old state, passed away and the next generation 
having no personal acquaintance with them, and perhaps knowing 
little about them otherwise, still further neglected communication 
and by the third generation, the story of their former home and 
kindred had passed into tradition, and few there were who could 
tell anything of their own origin. 

BECAME SCATTERED. 

As years rolled on, many of the descendants of those who 
settled in Vermont became widely dispersed throughout the 
whole country, and may now be found in almost every State 
in the Union and of those who passed beyond the national bound- 
ary into Canada, large numbers of their descendants found their 
way back to the States and claimed citizenship under the govern- 
ment from which their ancestors migrated, many years before. 

Many of them were educated in American colleges, some 
became American missionaries, while others took up arms in 
defense of the Union. 

THE DISCOVERY. 

In January, 1898, Rev. William Henry Lee, a native of 
Massachussetts, but of a Stanstead family beyond the boundary 
of Vermont, residing at that time at South Shaftsbury, Vermont, 
from reading the published account of the "Lee Gathering," of 
1884, prepared by William Wallace Lee, became convinced that 
he belonged to one of the "lost families" of the Farmington 
Lees. A correspondence with the author of the work, secretary 
of the "Lee Association," and others, and a comparing of notes, 
soon established the connection beyond a doubt, and the work of 
collecting family records for this supplement was taken up and 
vigorously pursued. Stanstead and many other records were 
consulted, cemeteries visited, and correspondence entered upon 
with kindred in various states from the Province of Quebec and 
New England to California. Wm. H. Lee pursued the work 
of collecting records in his own family line, meeting with success 
beyond his sanguine expectations. 

Meantime the secretary and compiler were not idle. A slight 
clue was obtained by Wm. Wallace Lee to the descendants of 
Zebulon Lee, and no efforts were spared to follow it out. Wil- 
lington ancient cemetery and town records were consulted 



VI INTRODUCTION. 

and also the town records and ancient cemetery at Hartland, 
Vermont. Copies of records were obtained from the office of 
the Adjutant General in Vermont, and pension rolls and other 
records at Washington and in Massachusetts were personally 
examined by the compiler and no items of interest omitted. 

There are families whose records are imperfect and many frag- 
ments are published, hoping that publicity may result in farther 
discovery. 

It is difficult to realize the arduous task of investigating ancient 
records without actual experience. Many of them are mutilated 
or half obliterated, many pages are half gone, others are entirely 
missing, and again, after hours of research nothing of importance 
is obtained. 

ERRORS. 

The venerable State Librarian of Connecticut, — Hon. Charles 
A. Hoadley, an eminent authority on history and genealogy, has 
said that " a perfect genealogy has never yet been published.''' 

The remarks on the subject in the Lee Book are equally 
applicable to the Supplement, and the substance will bear repeat- 
ing. It is absurd to expect that a work composed so largely of 
figures and statistics, will be entirely free from errors. 

When an individual obtains a copy of the family genealogy, he 
usually turns to his own record first, and if the slightest error is 
found, he is disposed to make the compiler the object of his 
ivrath, without stopping to consider that it may be the result of 
his own carelessness in the manuscript which was furnished. Of 
the hundreds of names, — or even thousands,— which are written, 
the compiler cannot be supposed to be personally acquainted with 
five per cent, of them, perhaps with less than two per cent, and 
of the few, he may know little or nothing of their data except 
what is furnished to him, and with the utmost vigilance, errors 
will escape his notice. Many errors are the result of imperfect 
manuscript, for which the compiler cannot be held responsible, — 
manuscript from which it is impossible to distinguish whether the 
name is intended for Charles or Chester — Olive or Oliver or 
Olivia — Jane or Irene — Elihu or Elisha — Jan. or June, — and 
similar errors are found among figures, and sometimes a typo- 
graphical error may escape the closest scrutiny. Scores of letters 
have been written for corrections, but have seldom received any 
attention. In one instance, four records of one family were re- 
ceived from as many different sources and no two were alike! 
The spelling of proper names is written as furnished unless known 



INTRODUCTION. Vll 

to be incorrect. One instance of fault finding is given of a lady 
who declared that she would never have purchased a copy if she 
had known that the names of her children had been omitted. In- 
vestigation proved that her children were not born when the 
records were furnished. 

Few genealogical works of importance are found without pages 
of corrections. Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, a standard 
work, consisting of four volumes, contains in the aggregate 2323 
pages, with 103 pages of corrections, while many other works con- 
tain a proportionate number, all of which shows the almost utter 
impossibility of publising a perfect work of this kind. 

CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS. 

On page 486 of the Lee Book an invitation is extended to 
all to furnish corrections, changes, additions, etc. A large num- 
ber have availed themselves of the opportunity while others have 
neglected it. Some have furnished important additions and his- 
torical items, all of which have been accepted and have been 
utilized. 

The invitation is repeated to all, — to communicate anything of 
importance, — births, marriages, deaths, new discoveries, or family 
historical items of interest, either to the Secretary of the Lee 
Association or the compiler, to be preserved for future use. 

PICTURE GALLERY. 

A limited number of portraits were solicited for insertion in 
this work, not so much for the benefit of the present generation 
as for posterity, and which may be expected to be more highly 
prized by each successive generation. 

Monuments are erected to preserve the memory of friends, and 
portraits are presumed to maintain a memory of their features. 
A larger number would have been acceptable. 

PERSONAL MENTION. 

It would have been gratifying to mention something of various 
individuals who maintain important positions in their own com- 
munity, with brief personal sketches. 

Some have been obtained only after persistent effort, some have 
been furnished by friends, and in other cases no response was ob- 
tained to inquiries. All items of importance which were received 
were utilized. 

In collecting material for this work the compiler would render 



Viii INTRODUCTION. 

particular acknowledgments to William Henry Lee, of Wichita, 
Kansas, formerly of Vermont, and Wm. Wallace Lee, of Meriden, 
Conn., for valuable assistance rendered. 

Many others there are who have manifested a deep interest in 
the family history, and have furnished valuable data, but to draw 
a line of distinction would be a delicate task. Acknowledgment 
of their service will be found under personal paragraphs. 

FINANCIAL. 
From the limited circulation of family genealogies, the cash 
receipts seldom pay the expenses of publication unless supple- 
mented by liberal personal donations from enterprising individu- 
als. This work, though not large has been expensive and the 
result of severe labor and research. 

No one rendering service in its preparation has received or ex- 
pects to receive any compensation therefor, nor is any margin 
expected on the work. No one who gives the subject a thought, 
can reasonably expect under such circumstances, that the commit- 
tee of publication, or those having the work in charge, to advance 
the necessary funds for publication, or assume a liability for the 
expense, while others should feel the same interest in their family 
history. Other works of this kind are often sustained by pledges 
of many hundreds of dollars to carry them through, to pay sala- 
ries and for clerical work, while this has been an enterprise en- 
tirely voluntary, depending upon the liberality of the kindred to 
assist in bearing the burden. 

The price named for the volume must be a low figure, that 
every family, however indigent, may feel able to possess a copy. 
Hence, a small contribution has been solicited from those who 
were supposed to feel an interest in the work. It is to be re- 
gretted that several of those who professed great enthusiasm on 
the subject turned a cold shoulder as soon as approached on the 
financial question, although abundantly able to contribute, while 
others have been generous according to their means. 

Sales from the few volumes of the Lee Book remaining on 
hand have been appropriated to this object. Some have shown 
their liberality by purchasing copies for friends, or public libra- 
ries, and others by their donations, all of which were equally 
acceptable. It may be added that several of those who were 
liberal contributors towards the publication of the Lee Book of 
1897, have voluntarily contributed towards this work, which goes 
to press with a prospective deficiency, for which the publishing 
committee will become responsible, unless provision is other- 
wise made. 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

CONCLUSION. 

The question may be asked why the compiler assumed the task 
of Historian of the Farmington Lee family ? The reply is ' ' because 
he was solicited to do so,' : and the reasons leading up to that so- 
licitation may be found on page 9 of the Lee Book. No one 
seemed available who had the leisure and inclination for such 
work. If the family history was ever to be written, it seemed 
almost imperative that it should be entered upon at once, while 
many of the older generations were present, and could furnish 
many unrecorded facts of interest, and also that existing genera- 
tions might have the benefit as soon as practicable. 

The same inquiry as the above might be made in reference to 
this Supplement, and nearly the same reply would be applicable. 

Having become somewhat familar with the general history of 
the family, and having also made the personal acquaintance of 
many individuals in various states, it seemed fitting that a 
continuation of the same work should be continued by the same 
writer. 

The task has been performed under most adverse circumstances, 
the correspondence being carried on largely while sojourning in 
California and Florida during the winter months, and from other 
states during the summer, while the writing out has been per- 
formed whenever opportunity occurred. No available opportunities 
have been neglected to call upon individuals, personally, for infor- 
mation and to interest them in the subject of their own family 
history. 

Many days have been spent in verifying copy, but it would be 
presumptuous to believe that no little mistake has escaped the 
eye of the compiler, or that the work contains no errors. 

The kind reader will criticize leniently, bearing in mind that 
every stroke of the pen has been gratuitous, as well as attendant 
expenses, and the task undertaken at a period of life when most 
men seek retirement, and that a work containing an occasional 
error, typographical or otherwise, may be better than none. 

Such as it is, the reader now has it before him. If it awakens 
any desire to pursue the subject farther, their is an abundant 
field for operation, for it is estimated there are still several hun- 
dreds whose whereabouts are unknown. If it shall contribute to 
the knowledge of the general family history, or to interest the 
present or future generations, the object of the compiler will 

have been accomplished.

X INTRODUCTION. 



OTHER LEE FAMILIES. 



In addition to the twelve Lee families of English extraction, 
who migrated to this country, previous to, or during the 
eighteenth century, which are noted in "John Lee and His De- 
scendants," pp. 26, 27 and 28, may be named the following : 

XIII. Nathaniel Lee, born in Dublin, Ireland, of English 

parentage, 1695 — was a commissioned officer in the British 
army, — joined in a revolt at the accession of George I 
to the throne of England, — his property was confiscated 
and he fled to America about 1725, — settled near Fish- 
kill on the Hudson River, N. Y., — died 1793, aged 98 
1725 years. Himself and wife were buried at Dover, N. Y. 
His descendants removed to Yates Co., N. Y. , and 
became prominent in that part of the state. One son 
was an officer in the Revolutionary War, and other 
descendants did service in the War of 1812-1815, and in 
the Confederate War. Dr. Joshua Lee, member of Con- 
gress, was of this family. Bradner W. Lee, Esq. , Attor- 
ney at Law, of Los Angeles Cab, is also a descendant of 
this family. 

XIV. Thomas Lee, (son of Francis Lee,) born 1710, migrated 

from the Island of Barbadoes to South Carolina in 
1735. His father, Francis Lee, came from Shropshire, 
England, some years previous to 1710, — precise date not 
known. Three of Thomas' sons were officers in the 
Revolutionary War, two of whom were captured by the 
1735 British. His descendants have lived in the Southern 

States mostly, — some of whom have been numbered 
among the prominent citizens of Charleston. A large 
, number served with distinction in the Confederate army. 
Abram M. Lee, a prominent lawyer of Charleston is a 
descendant of this family. The South Carolina branches 
of this family have a genealogical tree of great ingenuity. 



INTRODUCTION. XI 

XV. William Lee, came from England in 1760, at the age of 

14 years, — settled in Beaver County, Penn.,' (now Law- 
rence Co.,) — was a soldier in the Revolutionary Army 
eight years, — son, William, Jun., moved to Columbiana 
1760 Co., near New Lisbon, Ohio, — grand-son, John W. Lee, 
now (i899) resides at Burbank, near Los Angeles, Cal. — 
sons, Henry M. Lee & Brother, Job Printers, 2nd street, 
Los Angeles, Cal. 

XVI. James Lee, was a soldier in the British army during the 

Revolutionary War, — was captured with the army of 
Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown, Va., Oct. 19, 1781, — was 
released, married a Hessian woman and returned to Eng- 
land, — sailed again for this country on a British man-of- 
war, and when in Chesapeake Bay, their first child, John, 
1782 was born. Receiving a grant of land in Canada from 
the British crown, he settled in that country, where 
many of his descendants still remain, while large num- 
bers have become citizens of the United States, some of 
whom reside in Evanstown, 111., (1899. ) 

XVII. George Lee, emigrated from County Donegal, Ireland, 

in 1784, — of English extraction, in the 16th century, 
— landed at Wilmington, Delaware, after a voyage of two 
months, — some years later, passed on to Pennsylvania 
and in 1822 moved to Ohio. His descendants may now 
1784 be found scattered throughout the west, several of whom 
have taken orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church. 
A neat little pamphlet of 47 pages was published by 
Rev. John Newton Lee, D. D., of Waukegan, 111., in 
1898, — a work of much interest for the family.

STEPHEN LEE BRANCH. 

Pajre. No. 

170 — 25 "Josiah Lee, married Mary Christophers, Nov, 6, 
1774," (New London Records.) It was an error in 
attributing this marriage to Josiah, p. 403 — 18. In 
the will of his father, Dr. Isaac Lee, made in 1777, and 
to be found in Probate Records, he mentions "my 
son Josiah, now in captivity," and as no trace of 
him has ever been found, it is probable that he died 
a prisoner of war. 

173 — r 4 The old house of Dea. Josiah Lee, 14, a cut of which 
may be seen on p. 173, — supposed to have been built 
previous to 1730, — was torn down in Aug, 1899.

Britain, and wife of Gen. John Paterson, died at

May, 1892, the remains of herself and husband were 
removed from Lisle, N. Y. to Lenox, Mass., and 
furnished with suitable head-stones, and a monu- 
ment of granite erected in front of their former home. 
Their burial was attended with military honors and 
an oration was delivered on the occasion. A "Life of 
Gen. John Patterson," was published in 1S94 by a 
great grandson, Thomas Eggleston, L. L. D.

Co., Ohio, it was learned that there was a tradi- 
tion in the town that he was foully murdered and 
robbed in April, I825, by the landlord of the 
hotel where he lodged, whose name was Irving, and 
his accomplices. Several old citizens were inter- 
viewed, who were boys at the time and well remem- 
bered the cirumstances. Although it created a great 
excitement, no proof sufficient to convict the mur- 
derers could be obtained. Information of his death 
was sent to his friends, and that the sale of the 
horse and saddle which he rode produced barely 
enough to cover burial expenses. It is reported that 
he had $3,000 with him.

Longevity. It is believed that the per centage of

average that of other American families. At the present

of 80 years and upwards, six of whom are grand- 
children of Timothy Lee — p. 218 — 23 — of the sixth 
generation, while there are several survivors of 90 
years and upwards. Several have passed a^ay within 
a few years, at 90 to 98 years of age.

DESCENDANTS OF DAVID, 

YOUNGEST SON OF 

JOHN LEE*. 

Lebanon. Coventry. 2nd Gen. 

6. David, youngest son of John, 1, and Mary (Hart) Lee, 
was born at Farmington, in 1674. On the marriage of his 
mother to Jedediah Strong, Jan. 5, 1692, he, aged 18, and his 
youngest sister, Tabitha, aged 16, accompanied her to Northamp- 
ton, 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 17, 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 e street that goeth through y e village, northwesterly 
on land of Mr. Cushman, southwesterly on land of Ebenezer 
Gillett, and southeasterly on land of s d Gillett and Is^ac Bailey." 
No length of lines, nor number of acres is given. 

Aug. 15, 1737, he deeds the same land with the same descrip- 



44 DESCENDANTS OF DAVID, 

tion to his son David, in exchange for land in Coventry. A 
thorough examination ot records, both town and church, failed to 
furnish anything of importance concerning him. He.died in 1759, 
aged 85 years. The place of his burial is uncertain, as no tomb- 
stone has been found in any of the old cemeteries. Children :

FOURTH GENERATION. 

Willington. 3rd Gen. 

7. Jedediah, eldest son of David, 6, and Lydia (Strong) Lee, 
born Feb. 1, 1697, at Northhampton, Mass., married, Sept. 6, 
1722, Lucee, or Lucy Dodge. He was a farmer at Willington, 
where he died in 1748. His property was inventoried at £925-13. 
His wife and eldest son, Elias, were executors of his will, ap- 
pointed April 11, 1748. " At a Court of Probate held in Hartford, 
Feb. 9, 1754, Elias Lee, of Willington, guardian to Oliver, Zebu- 
Ion and Simon, sons of Jedediah, prayed for the distribution of 
the estate according to will of deceased, viz. : To Josiah, Jede- 
diah, deceased (or his legal representatives) Oliver, Zebulon and 
Simon." He was appointed guardian of the minor children 
July 3, 175°- 

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

Note. — Thus far has been copied from " John Lee and His Descendants," published 
in 1897, of which this is a Supplement. The descendants of Jedediah (7) were among' the 
" lost families ** at that time, and information concerning them was largely fragmen- 
tary and traditional, and. as the sequel proved, very unreliable. What has now been 
collected has been done largely through his direct descendants, and from public and 
private records, and is deemed more reliable. The individual numbers, including the 
family of Jedediah, are retained from the Lee book. — thence forward, they are a con- 
tinuation of the David branch, as found on page 465, commencing with No. 544, with the 
children of Elias.

46 DESCENDANTS OF ELIAS. 

FIFTH GENERATION. 
Elias and Descendants. 

Willington. 4th Gen. 

14. Elias, son of Jedediah, 7, and Lucy (Dodge) Lee, born 
July 26, 1723, married Sarah Royce Jan. 17, 1744. She died May 

5, 1765. He married second, Keziah who died April 

26, 1807, aged 91 years. He died Feb. 25, 1795, aged 72 years. 
The headstones of himself and two wives may be seen at Willing- 
ton, from which these dates are copied. 

His father deeded to him fifty acres of land in Willington in 
1744, on which he made his home. He was a joint executor with 
his mother in the settlement of his father's estate, and appointed 
guardian to the minor heirs July 3, 1750. He was also adminis- 
trator to his mother's estate in 1750. He served ten weeks in 
the French war in 1756, for which he received £2-11-5^. 

His name mentioned on page 403 of "John Lee and Descend- 
ants," 1897, as having served in the Revolutionary war is, un- 
doubtedly an error, as later discoveries render it quite positive that 
the service should have been attributed to his son, Elias, Jun., as 
he was then a young man of military age, while the father was 
advanced in years. It is also probable that it was the son's 
name which appeared on the public records of Farmington after 
the war, as the father died and was buried at Willington, as is 
shown by his tombstone still standing there. His name is found 
on the town records in 1 75 t , and again in 1762, and every year 
thereafti r till 1770, in real estate transactions. 

From the town records it is found that he was one of the 
founders ol a Baptist church there, but the church entirely dis- 
appeared man\ years ago, and the records also. Children:

April 27, 1780, — promoted to sergeant Dec. 1, 1777, —was at the 
battle of Germantown and other engagements. After the war, 
his name is found on the records of Farmington, from which 
place he went north into Massachusetts and Vermont, and 
perhaps to Stanstead. But little seems to have hern known of 
him. He died Sept. 22, 1798. 

The repetition of names, as is frequently found, leads to 
frequent errors. Child :

of the Lexington alarm. During the Revolutionary war, he and 
his brother Jedediah served in Capt. Jonathan Parker's Co., of 
Willington, — were in service about New York in the summer and 
fall of 1776, and at the battle of White Plains, Oct. 28 of that 
year. This Company served at the Brooklyn front at battle of 
Long Island, Aug. 27, 1776, — in retreat to New York, — and in 
retreat from New York, Sept. 15. He was Sergeant of a Com- 
pany for defense of Lyme, 1779, and was a pensioner under act 
of 1 8 18. About 1783, he removed to Pittsford, Vt., where the 
records show several land transfers. He resided there till 1797, 
when he removed to what is now known as Rock Island, P. Q., 
just across the national boundary, then a new country, and almost 
an unbroken wilderness. A few years later, he sold his improve- 
ments to his brother Jedediah, and located about six miles farther 
north in the township of Stanstead, where he was one of the first 
settlers, and where he resided till his death, July 1, 1806.

He married, second, at New York in 1839, Lucy Thompson, of

berry, Vt., — was a fellow student with Maria T. Ware, wife of 
Rev. Daniel Lee, of the mission, — had been appointed to the 
Oregon mission, and sailed via. Cape Horn in the ship Lausanne.

Jason's early life was spent on the homestead farm, sometimes 
teaching school during the winter after reaching the proper age, 
having been properly qualified at the academy in his native 
village. 

At the age of 22 he became a member of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, and in the autumn of 1828 entered the Wesleyan 
Academy at Wilbraham, Mass., under the presidency of Dr. 
Wilbur Fiske. Although a Canadian by birth, his entire line of 
American ancestors, of whom he was the sixth generation, were 
natives of Connecticut, except the first English immigrant in 
1634. Bishop Baker, who was then one of his fellow students, 
afterward remarked of him that "he was a large, athletic young 
man, six feet and three inches in height, with a fully developed 
frame, and a constitution of iron." His inclination was strongly 
drawn towards mission work, and he subsequently engaged in 
Indian mission labors under direction of the M. E. Church of 
Canada. 

Early in 1833 it was determined by the American M. E. Board 
<>l Missions to send out an expedition to Oregon to establish a 
mission among the Indians of that almost unknown region, and 
with great unanimity Rev. Jason Lee was called from Canada to 
lead the expedition, and become superintendent of the mission. 

( >n Jul) 17, 1833, it was officially announced that Rev. Jason 
Lee had been appointed missionary to the Flat Head Indians. 
I he name was subsequently changed to Oregon Mission. 

Resigning his charge in Canada, he responded to the call, and 
in tip summer of that year was ordained in Boston, and united 
with the N. E. Conference. His nephew, Rev. Daniel Lee, also 
1 ( anadian by birth, was appointed his assistant. 

At that time there were but two ways of reaching Oregon, — 
on-, by a voyage oi several months around Cape Horn, — the 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 57 

other by a journey of several months across the continent, the 
route of which was then an unexplored wilderness, inhabited by 
wild beasts, and wild Indians, few of whom had ever seen a white 
man. 

The latter route was decided upon, and early in March, 1834, 
they left New England for Fort Independence, on the western 
frontier of Missouri. They were joined by two laymen, Cyrus 
Shepherd and P. L. Edwards, the party of four being provided 
with nine horses for riding and packing their outfit. They also 
drove a couple of cows for their use. At this point they also 
joined a hunting and trapping party in the employment of a fur 
company, and on the 24th of April set forth on their long and 
perilous journey, which was to continue more than five months, 
either through a trackless wilderness with the compass for their 
only guide, or following a narrow Indian trail. Their route, 
including the meanderings which they were compelled to follow 
was fully two thousand miles. They toiled over arid and alkali 
deserts, broad prairies, and precipitous mountains, threaded dark 
and intricate mazes of tangled forests, forded rapid and treach- 
erous streams, swam rapid currents to explore for a safe crossing, 
and amid all these lurked dangers seen and unseen. They 
encountered herds of buffaloes and were ever on the alert for the 
wily red man. It so happened that they pursued nearly the same 
route as that pursued, a few years later, by Gen. Fremont on his 
famous exploring expedition when he became noted as the great 
path-finder. Indeed, if the incidents of their journey could be 
collected and written out, they would read like romance. 

Their usual camping ground was some river bottom, where 
there was grass, their horses staked out to feed, their tents 
pitched for the night, when each man took his turn to stand 
guard to prevent surprise from the Indians or from any other 
source. Each man carried a rifle fastened to his saddle bow, 
either for protection, or for killing game for their sustenance. 
One night, seven days' journey from Independence their horses 
became stampeded and most of them broke loose ; with those 
remaining, they were overtaken and secured. 

Their usual day's journey was about twenty miles, halting a 
short time at noon, and halting and pitching their tents early at 
night, that their horses might feed before dark. They killed 
several antelopes which added to food supplies. 

On the 20th of June, they reached a rendezvous of the Ameri- 
can Fur Co., on Kansas Fork. Here they halted till the 2nd of 



58 



DESCENDANTS OF ELIAS, 



July to allow their jaded animals to recruit, then continuing their 
journey to Fort Hall, which they reached on the 15th and again 
halted till the 20th. At this place, an Indian presented to Rev. 
]ason, a fine horse. His had become much jaded, and a horse 
was very acceptable. He made some suitable presents in return. 
Many Indians were met on their journey. Their march now 
continued uninterruptedly till they reached Fort Walla Walla on 
the Columbia River, the first day of September. 

Leaving their horses here, after a stop of three days, they 
proceeded down the river in canoes, and after a tedious voyage 
of eleven days arrived at Fort Vancouver Sept. 15th, and the 
following'night slept under a roof, the first time for 152 nights. 

Giving themselves but three days' rest, they were off on an 
exploring expedition from which they returned after an absence 
of ten days, but still undecided where to locate. 

On Sunday following, Oct. 19, and just fifty years after the 
organization of the M. E. church at Baltimore on the Atlantic 
seaboard, Jason Lee, set up her banners on the shores of the 
Pacific. Here he preached to a mixed company of hunters and 
trappers, half breeds and Indians, — the first Protestant sermon 
ever listened to west of the Rocky Mountains.

THE MISSION HOUSE AFTER ITS ENLARGEMENT. 

Before leaving I lost on, supplies had been purchased and shipped 
l>\ a trading vessel around Cape Horn, and they had now arrived 
in the Columbia River. A site- for the mission had been selected 
75 miles up the Willamette River, and after incredibly hard labor 
by boat, the goods were safely landed at their destination early in 
( h tober. Having no shelter for themselves or goods, they pro- 
led to build a log house 18x32 feet. The rainy season was 
1 commencing and rain fell in torrents, while they were com- 
pelled to labor under the greatest discomfort. By the first of 
Nov< mix t. they succeeded in moving both themselves and their 
"■oils under a friendh shelter. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 59 

A mission school was soon established and Indian children 
collected, and during the winter of 1834-5 they were engaged in 
teaching, and in improving their house, which they had occasion 
to double in dimensions. 

As spring opened, they found it necessary to provide for future 
wants, by cultivating the ground, which, in a crude way, they 
accomplished. In the fall they gathered a good crop of wheat, 
peas, barley and potatoes, which, with six barrels of salmon, 
purchased of the Indians, furnished a fair supply for the following 
year. 

By persevering labor of the whole band the mission nourished, 
and the school increased in numbers and efficiency. They had 
no time for idleness, many tedious horseback journeys were to be 
made, and many voyages on the river in canoes, to explore the 
region around about them, always camping out and enduring 
many hardships. 

In September, 1835, the whole mission family suffered severely 
from intermittent fever. Rev. Jason suffered a third attack, and 
in a very reduced state was compelled to make a journey of two 
days to Vancouver to obtain medical aid. He returned after an 
absence of five weeks, but still in a feeble condition. 

In February, previous, he had solicited reinforcements from 
New York, and in compliance with his request, a compan}' of 
eight assistants sailed from Boston in July, 1836, five of whom 
were ladies. They reached Columbia River, via. Cape Horn 
and Sandwich Islands, in May, 1837. 

This company was hailed with great satisfaction by the four 
lonely brethren, who had hitherto composed the entire mission 
force, the more so as they were thenceforth to be cheered by the 
presence and sympathy of intelligent ladies from their own 
country. They had long before found that " it was not good for 
man to be alone," and this addition to their numbers was highly 
appreciated, as the sequel will show. In September, they received 
another reinforcement materially strengthening their little 
band. 

The mission, however, was not without its little romance. On 
Sabbath, July 16, 1837, nearly all the white people in the. Wil- 
lamette Valley, besides many Indians, had gathered in a beautiful 
grove to witness an interesting ceremony, at which Rev. Jason 
led to the altar Miss Anna Maria Pittman, a lady of fine literary 
taste and of much refinement. They were the first white couple 
known to have been married in Oregon. 



60 DESCENDANTS OK ELIAS, 

Mr. Shepherd, at the same time, took to himself, Miss Down- 
ing, both ladies being late arrivals. The ceremony was performed 
by Rev. Daniel Lee. Sabbath services were then conducted by 
Rev. Jason. A few weeks later Rev. K. W. Perkins, who had 
come out in one of the late reinforcements, was married to Miss 
Johnson. Thus three of the ladies of the mission had been 
provided for, and two of the four original band who journeyed 
across the continent, also. 

In March, 1838, so largely had all their operations increased, that 
it was decided, unanimously, at a general consultation, that Rev. 
Jason should re-cross the continent, and solicit further aid in 
reinforcements and supplies, and interest the churches generally, 
in the work. 

In the early part of April Mr. Lee took his departure on his 
second trip over the long trail across the country. Late in 
August, he had reached the Shawnee mission near Westport, 
Mo., (now within the corporate limits of Kansas City) and had 
retired after the day's weary ride. In the dead of night, he was 
aroused by the arrival of a messeuger who had been sent to over- 
take him, and had been sixty days on the journey. A package of 
letters was placed in his hands, one of which foretold gloomy 
news. It contained intelligence of the death of his wife, — the 
bride of a little more than a year. She had given birth to a son, 
and a few days later both mother and infant had died and had 
been buried in the same grave. 

At the time of this marriage there were but four ladies at the 
mission and the occurrence made a deep impression upon the 
natives as well as upon the little community. 

With a heavy heart he pursued his journey, arriving at New 
York in November, 1838. Soon after, the Mission Board held a 
meeting to consider his report, and the object of his return to the 
States. The Board not only granted his request, but went far 
beyond, and prepared to send a force of thirty-six adults, — 
professionals, and mechanics. 

About this time, the Hudson Bay Fur Co., a British company, 
had expressed an intention to take, and retain permanent posses- 
sion of the territory, for the benefit of the British crown, although 
the territory was strictly within the limits of the United States. 
On this subject, Mr. Lee held several interviews with President 
Van Buren, and other high officials, giving them valuable infor- 
mation, and so deeph did he impress them with the importance 
of his enterprise, that the President made an appropriation of 
several thousand dollars in its aid from the secret service fund. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 61 

During the several months required to prepare for sailing with 
his company, he traveled extensively over the eastern and middle 
states, and as far south as Charleston, interesting the people 
and the churches on the Oregon question. 

In the meantime, so alarming had become the apparent in- 
tentions of the fur company, that Dr. Marcus Whitman of the 
Presbyterian mission, became intensely aroused, and subsequently 
made a trip across the continent, in mid-winter, to advise the 
government of what movements were being made, — a trip which 
has become famous in history. Mr. Lee and Mr. Whitman were 
familiar with each other, and their families were on intimate 
terms in Oregon. 

On the evening of the gth of October, 1839, a party of fifty-four 
persons, sixteen of whom were children, set sail from New York 
on the ship Lausanne, one of the largest sailing craft of that time, 
with Rev. Jason Lee in charge of this missionary band. This 
was the largest expedition of the kind which had ever left our 
shore. In the company, were nineteen ladies. Not all the 
company, however, were destined for Oregon, as several of them 
were sent out by the Presbyterian Board to the Sandwich Islands. 

Storms were encountered from time to time, and sea-sickness 
prevailed. On the gth of December they touched at Rio Janeiro, 
after having been out of sight of land, fifty-nine days. Here 
they remained till the 14th. 

Nearing Cape Horn, they encountered a most fearful stoim 
and were driven back and out of their course, during which they 
suffered the greatest inconvenience, requiring no little tact and 
perseverance on the part of Mr. Lee to cheer up his band with 
the prospect of a more prosperous voyage within a few days. In 
consequence of these delays, they were sixteen days late in arriv- 
ing at Valparaiso in Chili, at which port they touched to renew 
their supplies. 

From this place they sailed direct to the Sandwich Islands, 
where several passengers were to be landed. Smooth sailing was 
experienced, and no noteworthy event occurred till they arrived 
at the Columbia River in Oregon, June 1, 1840, having been 
nearly eight months on a voyage of 22,000 miles. 

The mission prospered with the new reinforcements, and its 
operations were much extended. In 1843, it again became 
necessary for Mr. Lee to visit the States, to promote the civil and 
religious welfare of Oregon. His second wife had died the year 
previous leaving an infant daughter, from whom he was to be 
separated, never to meet her again. 



g2 DESCENDANTS OF ELTAS, 

He sailed on January 31, and reached the Sandwich Islands 
after a voyage of twenty-four days. In order to shorten his 
voyage from the Islands, he took passage on a Hawaiian schooner, 
and landed at San Bias on the Mexican Coast, April 6, 1844, and 
pursued his journey. His route was by diligence, a lumbering, 
Mexican vehicle, via. Guadlajarra (Wad la-har-ra), to the City of 
Mexico. At that time the relations between the United States 
and Mexican governments were much strained on account of the 
agitation of the subject of the annexation of Texas, to the States. 
At the former city, all his papers were taken from him, including 
his journal, which he had kept during his missionary labors, and 
himself threatened with imprisonment. He was finally permitted 
to proceed on his journey to Vera Cruz. From that port he 
sailed for New Orleans, — proceeding thence by river steamer and 
stage, he arrived at New York, May 27, 1844. 

During the same summer, he was in Washington presenting the 
case of Oregon to the administration. It was during the Presi- 
dential campaign of that year, and the excitement on the Oregon 
boundary question, when the great cry was, "Fifty-four Forty, or 
Fight !" — claiming 54 °. 40 ". as the northern boundary of Oregon. 
He was able to give much valuable information on the subject, 
and his reception by the President, was most cordial. 

From this time onward, his health began to fail, and his frame, 
though strong and robust, was compelled to yield to disease. In 
August following, his impaired health compelled him to desist 
from all labor, and seek an asylum among friends at the old 
homestead. 

We pass over several months intervening, as the sketch has 
already become lengthy. 

From this time he dictated letters to his friends, the last of 
which bore date Feb. 8, 1845, and on March 12th he quietly 
p.i^s. d away in the room in which he was born, and his remains 
lie sleeping in the village cemetery of his native town.

That Rev. Jason Lee and his assistants, Rev. Daniel and their 

party wen the first American pioneers and settlers of Oregon, 

will be readibj 1 onceded. They opened the way for American 

enterprise, and settlement of the country, and improved their 

1 unity. Their lust occupation of the soil, was by the 

erei tion of a log house, mar the site of what is now the beautiul 

tli in. tin Capitol of the State. Other sites were selected

thi wisdom and foresight of the founders. From these 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 63 

early mission schools of 1834, have sprung various instutions of 
learning, and among them the Willamette University, one of the 
noted institutions on the Pacific Coast. Let posterity do justice 
to the founders. 

Fifty years later, in 1884, this institution held its first semi- 
centennial jubilee, which was a proud moment for the M. E. 
church in Oregon, and the friends of Jason Lee. Though a 
Canadian by birth, — born almost within hailing distance of the 
American boundary, — he was a thorough New Englander by 
blood, and inherited a strong attachment for her institutions and 
interest. He spoke French fluently, which gained him a ready 
access to French Canadians and half-breeds. 

That his memory is held in high esteem by the M. E. church 
in Oregon, is not only evident from personal observation by the 
writer, but by a tablet on the front of an elegant brick edifice in 
Salem, bearing the inscription, " M E. church. Founded in 
Oregon by Rev. Jason Lee, 1834." 

"That loyal old pioneer, Rev. Jason Lee, chief of the Methodist 
mission in Oregon, visited Washington in 1838, and forcibly 
presented the condition of the country and its dangers. With 
funds contributed by generous friends, he succeeded in taking 
back with him, quite a delegation of actual settlers, for Oregon, 
but neither Congress nor the people were aroused."- —"How 
Marcus Whitman Saved Oregon." By Oliver IV. Nixon, D. D., 

A 45- 

'•The Methodists sent the Lees in 1834. and the American 
Board, Presbvterian, tried to find the right man to accompany 
them, but failed, — in 1835 they sent Whitman."- —Ibid, p. 6j. 

"•'Jason Lee, chief of the Methodist mission, was 

the most successful of all. A man of great strength of charactei 
* * * a man of great physical strength, fearless, and with 
it all, wise and brainy." — Ibid, />. 100. 

"Mr. Lee was not a man to think of personal danger or hard- 
ship when great interests were to be served." — Hist. Oregon 
Missions. 

"lie was the responsible head of the missions and showed 
himself equal to the demands of the work." — Ibid. 

'• No other American in the country had the influence oj Mr. 
Lee with the Indians, and his courage and sagacity were equal to 
any emergency that arose." — Ibid. 

"His personal appearance was commanding, — six feet tin 
inches in height, and well developed, and light complexion. " Ibid. 



64 DESCENDANTS OF ELIAS. 

"Though horn on Canadian soil, with a love for his native 
home, his instincts were American, and Revolutionary ancestry, 
strengthened by education in American institutions and American 
citizenship, rendered him thoroughly American." —Ibid. 

Numerous other quotations might be made from other works 
in which" they are mentioned in complimentary terms, but we 
forbear. For the main facts we have drawn liberally from "Wild 
Life in Oregon," and "Ten Years in Oregon." 

It is a source of honest and creditable pride, to his friends and 
kindred to know that his memory is justly esteemed by those who 
know most of his labors. 



The grave of Anna Maria Pittman, wife of Rev. Jason Lee, 
lies within a small inclosure, sacred to the memory of early 
missionaries, in "Lee Mission Cemetery," located on a slight 
eminence on the prairie, near, and over looking the beautiful 
valley of the Willamette, the vision bounded by ranges of low 
hills which add to the romance of the scene. It is marked 
by a plain marble slab, on which is the following inscription : 

'' Beneath this sod, 
the first broken in Oregon, 

for the reception of 
White Mother and Child, 

lie the remains of 

Anna Maria Pittman,

and her infant son.

purity (jf the occupant beneath the slab.

EIGHTH GENERATION. 

Oregon. Caldwell, Kan. yth Gen. 

580. Rev. Daniel, son of Elias, 560, and Rhoda (Morrill) 
Lee, born at Stanstead, July i, 1806 ; married at Fort Vancouver, 
Oregon, June 11, 1840, Maria Taylor Ware, daughter of Capt. 
Benjamin and Martha Ware of Gilson, N. H., where she was 
born, Oct. 7, 1812. 

His early life was spent on the homestead farm. Subsequently 
he attended the Grammar school at Peacham, Vt., and, later, 
Stanstead Academy, and the Wesleyan Academy at Wilbraham, 
Mass. He also taught school several terms, — was licensed as an 
exhorter by the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1827, — in 1831 
was admitted to the New England Conference, and filled appoint- 
ments at Hartland and Putney, Vt., and at Goshen, N. H. 

In 1834 he was ordained elder by the Baltimore Conference, 
and the same year appointed assistant to his uncle, Rev. Jason 
Lee, on the Oregon Mission. Starting from Independence, Mo., 
April 24, 1834, he crossed the continent with Rev. Jason and his 
party, with pack horses, ten years before the first wagon train 
was attempted, arriving at Fort Walla Walla on the Columbia 
River, on the first day of September following, and on the sixth 
day of October. 1834, the party broke ground for the first Protes- 
tant mission west of the Rocky Mountains, near the spot on 
which now stands the beautiful city of Salem, capital of Oregon. 

For nearly ten years he labored in the mission and was closely 
identified with Rev. Jason Lee, and an account of the labors of 
one necessarily includes much of the labor and privation of the 
other, in their attempt to establish the first mission in Oregon. 
During these years he traveled more than 11,000 miles in open 
canoes on the rivers, besides making many long and tedious 
journeys on horseback, camping with the red men of the forest 
and enduring the same privations. Explorations were to be 
made, Indians to be interviewed, and often, their hostility and 
superstition to be encountered, the necessities of the mission 
were to be provided for, and ground to be cultivated for that 
purpose by their own hands. One winter, wheat for thirty souls 
was carried twelve miles to mill on pack horses, through the 
rain and mud. Sometimes they had pounded their wheat, and at 
other times had boiled it. 

Although establishing a mission and devoting their principal 
attention to that purpose, they also explored and studied the 



68 DESCENDANTS OF ELIAS, 

nature and resources of the country, with a design to future 
settlement and civilization, and subsequent history proves that 
their judgment on many subjects to be developed, was well 
founded. 

Once, having occasion to leave the mission for an absence of 
one week with a party of Indians, to obtain a few cattle for the 
mission farm, the difficulties of the journey, over high mountains, 
down precipices, through dense forests, and rapid streams to be 
forded, prolonged the time twice as long as anticipated. Pro- 
visions became exhausted, and after suffering from hunger, they 
were obliged to kill a poor jaded horse, on which they subsisted 
till they arrived among a tribe from whom provisions could be 
obtained, having consumed the last morsel of their horse beef on 
that day. 

On some occasions his duties required him to spend six months 
among the tribes without sight of a pale face, and his adventures 
among them were often thrilling. An Indian boy was once 
received into the mission school, and died a few months later. 
A few days after his death, his brother, moved by some super- 
stition that the white men had in some way been the cause of his 
death, came to the mission determined to seek revenge by taking 
the life of Mr. Lee and another missionary, and was prevented 
only by the intervention of a friendly Indian who accompanied 
him. Bent upon wreaking his vengeance on somebody, he 
rushed upon a band of unarmed Indians and killed several of 
them before his fury could be restrained. 

An instance is related of his coolness in an emergency. On 
their journey across the continent in 1834, the party drove 
several cows. On one occasion, after camping for the night, 
while he was milking, an alarm was given of the approach of a 
band of wild Indians at a furious gallop, and he was warned 
to seek safety, when he exclaimed, " by the will of God, I propose 
to relieve this cow," and continued his milking. Fortunately, 
the) proved to be friendly Indians. 

He frequently suffered from sickness, and once was obliged to 
go to Fort Vancouver, ninety miles distant, for medical aid. 
Re< eiving no material benefit, he sailed for the Sandwich Islands 
in the fall of 1835, returning in August, 1836, much improved in 
health, and bringing $250 which had been contributed by the 
natives for the benefit of the Oregon mission. 

On tin [6th day of July, 1837, Mr. Lee conducted services of 
a very int« resting nature, in a pleasant grove of fir trees in front 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 69 

of the mission house, at which he united three couples in 
marriage, one of which was Rev. Jason Lee and Miss Anna 
Maria Pittman. 

In 1838 he opened a branch mission at the Dalles, on the 
Columbia River, and built the first house where that city now 
stands. Within a couple of years he had the satisfaction of 
witnessing a revival among the Indians, extending 50 to 75 miles 
along the river, in which it was estimated that nearly 1,000, in 
the country round about, professed a change of faith and 
practice. 

In 1840 he was united in marriage with Miss Maria T. Ware, 
who had been appointed by the M. E. Board as a teacher in the 
mission. She arrived in Oregon in May of that year, after a 
perilous voyage in a sailing vessel around Cape Horn, and from 
that time became identified with the mission as a most efficient 
helper. She was a graduate of the seminary at Newberry, Vt. , — 
a woman of sterling qualities, and of more than ordinary ability. 
Nor did she escape the perils and adventures incident to a 
missionary life, often accompanying her husband on long and 
tedious journeys through the wilderness. On one occasion she 
barely escaped drowning, by clinging to the mane of her horse 
while he swam out of deep water. She was alone, and had 
intended to cross the stream at the ford, but had mistaken the 
path. — Ten Years in Oregon, p. 259. 

On another occasion she rode in hasce a mile and a half to 
give an alarm at the conduct of a band of Indians, but by the 
firmness of the little party of whites they were driven off. — Ibid, 
P- 243. 

After ten years of unremitting toil and hardship, Mr. Lee's 
health had suffered to such an extent that he found it prudent to 
withdraw from mission work. His wife's health had also become 
much impaired. Accordingly, he resigned from the mission, in 
1843, spent some time at the Sandwich Islands, and after another 
tedious voyage in a sailing vessel, around Cape Horn, arrived, 
with his family at Boston in March, 1844. Soon after his return 
he published a work entitled, k ' Ten Years in Oregon," giving 
much of his own experience and containing main thrilling 
sketches. 

From 1844 to 1851 he preached in the New Hampshire Con 
ference. In the latter year, he moved to Wilbraham Mass.,— 
thence to Hillsboro, 111., in 1857, where he resided twenty years. 
About 1877 he removed to Caldwell, Kan. , where, after a residence 



70 



DESCENDANTS OF ELIAS, 



of fifteen years, his home was broken up by the death of his 
wife, which occurred July 4, 1892, in the 80th year of her age. 

During all these years of active service, he became known and 
venerated as "Father Lee," and had been ably sustained by his 
gifted wife, who had also acquired the appellation "Mother Lee. : ' 

In February, 1895, Mr. Lee was injured by a fall while stepping 
from the train, from which he never recovered. He died at the 
home of his son, Rev. Albert B. Lee, at Hennesey, Oklahoma, 
July 22, 1895, aged 89 years. 

He kept a journal of his experience for many years, and was 
the writer of many poems of much merit, and maintained an 
extensive correspondence to the last. 

In stature Mr. Lee was nearly six feet high, strong and mus- 
cular, with strong will power and nerve to carry him through the 
perils which it became his lot to encounter, and though he was 
called to pass through many domestic trials and afflictions, he 
was never known to murmur. Children :

April 19, 1822. She was residing at Seaman, Kan., in 1898. 

In his younger years, he taught school in his native town, and 
later, was publisher of the " Frontier Sentinel." 

In the Canadian rebellion of 1837. he, with a company of his 
neighbors, was arrested by a party of twenty British soldiers, at 
the instigation of government officials, charged with being a 
sympathizer of the patriots. He was confined in prison six 
months without a hearing, then liberated on bail, but never 
brought to trial. 

During the removal of the Cherokee Indians by the U. S^ 
government to their destination in Indian Territory about 1835- 
38, he had charge as conductor of one division. 

In 1849 he went to Caliornia via Panama, became sick at San 
Francisco, was placed aboard a vessel and landed on tin coast of 
South America, with little or no means — eventually made his 
way to New Orleans, thence to Montgomery, Ala., where ho 
engaged in teaching, two years, thence to Canada. Soup- years 
later he removed to the vicinity of Independence. Mo., locating 
at what has since been known as Lee's Summit. 

During the Confederate war, his house was visited b) a hand 
of guerrillas for whom his wife prepared an ample meal, while he 
was conveniently "sick in bed." They said grace over the meal 
and stole a pair of boots as they went out. He removed to

country, he was arrested by British soldiers as a suspected sym- 
pathizer with the patriots of the day. An attempt was made to 
compel him to testify against his neighbors, which he refused to 
do — was imprisoned a few days and released. 

He taught school occasionally, and remained at the homestead 
till 1842, then entered the M. E. Theological Institute, at New- 
berrv, Yt. — continued his studies at the Wesleyan University, at 
Middletown, Conn., in 1844, — worked his way through his course 
of three years mainly by his own efforts, graduating in 1847. S300 
in debt — went to Georgia soon after, where he readily secured an 
eligible position as principal of an institution at a liberal salary, 
and, at the close of his first year, had cancelled his indebtedness 
with flattering prospects before him. 

In 1848, he was ordained at Augusta, Georgia, but chose teach- 
ing as his profession — held man}' prominent positions in the 
schools of the Southern states, and among them, Professor of 
Ancient Languages in the Female College, at Oak Bowery, 
Alabama — for several years was President of the Masonic College, 
at Auburn, Ala., and later, sustained the same relation to the 
Whitworth College for Young Ladies, at Brookhaven, Miss. 

At the breaking out of the Civil War, he had been a resident 
of the Southern states fourteen years, and, being a native of 
Canada, was considered either a neutral or a Confederate sym- 
pathizer. On one occasion he was called upon to address a 
company of volunteers, departing for the seat of war in high 
spirits. He informed them that they "must not expect an easy 
conquest, for they had a formidable enemy to contend with, as he 
well knew— an enemy of strong nerve and sinew, reared to labor 
and self-reliance, and would require many hard blows b< fore 
being overcome" — words which proved prophetic. 

In 1870 Mr. Lee became connected with the firm of J. W. 
Burke & Co. , a Methodist book and publishing hous. at Macon, 
Ga., in which he continued several years. In 1886 he was ap- 
pointed warden for the city of Atlanta, and clothed with unusual 
powers for a single officer. In this position he remained two 
years, when his arduous duties becoming too severe, and his 
health becoming impaired, he retired from all public duties, and 
in 1890 took up his residence at University Place, Los Angeles, 
Cah, which is still his home (1899 

During his professional life, Mr L< e was most ably assisted by 
his gifted wife, she teaching in the departments ol musi< , modern 
languages, art, etc., and making her influence felt for tin- he,,, lit 
of her pupils. Children ;

opinion." 

After the war, the family removed to Illinois, where he taught 
five years in the public schools, — removed to Corning, Mo., in 
1872, where he Jived 22 years. "He was a local preacher, and

Lee, born Oct. 26, 1814, at Stanstead, married Deborah P. Sears, 
at Moline, 111., May 1, 1842. She born at Gallatin in 1824, — 
a sister of D. B. Sears, who was once the owner of the greater 
part of what is at present the site of Moline and Rock Island. 

A brief sketch of his life is, perhaps, best given by an obituary 
notice which appeared in a Chicago paper at the time of his 
death. 

"In early life Mr. Lee learned the tinner's trade at Burlington, 
Vt. In 1832, he came to Chicago and found employment in a 
hardware store. At the end of two years he started out to seek 
a new location, and finally settled at Rock Island, where he 
engaged in the hard and tinware business, which proved very 
successful. In 1854 ne was elected to the Illinois Legislature 
from the Rock Island district on the Republican ticket, — was 
principal owner of the first bank organized in Rock Island. 

" In i860 he went to Colorado and located Gregory gold mines, 
which were among the first established in the State. The venture 
proved to be profitable. Disposing of his interest in these, he 
organized the Black Hawk Mining Co., and started the town of 
Black Hawk. Retaining an active interest in the mines, Mr. Lee 
returned to Chicago in 1865, with a large fortune, invested in real 
estate and retired from active business in 1869. 

"For many years during his residence in Chicago, he was an 
elder in the Third Presbyterian Church, and during his residence 
in Rock Island, was instrumental in founding a church of that 
denomination there. When Fanvell Hall was erected in Chicago, 
he was one of the heaviest subscribers to the institution, and for 
several terms, ofn< iated as president of its board of trustees, and 
was widely known as a citizen of Chicago. 

•'The great lire of 1S71 and the subsequent panic inflicted 
heavy losses upon him, and in 1881, his failing health compelled 
him to visit various health resorts. For two years he had been a 
confirmed invalid and in July previous to his decease, was 
brought from Philadelphia completely prostrated, and died Nov. 
1 592, at his residence, 182 Warren avenue, aged 78 years."

In early life he taught school and obtained an education 
largely by his own efforts, — became a member of the M. E. 
church at the age of 16, — was a licensed exhorter at an early age, 
—teaching school week days and preaching on Sundays. "In 
[842 he traveled Delaware circuit with a colleague, meeting with 
success far beyond human expectation, about 500 professing con- 
version through their ministrations. He was particularly gifted 
in extemporary preaching, and even eloquent. Five or six years 
were spent on various circuits. In 1S51 he was appointed to 
Bedford Street Church, then the largest M. E. church in the city 
of New York. Naturally of a frail constitution, his labors soon 
proved too severe for his strength, and his system becoming pros- 
trated, he was obliged to retire from the field. He possessed an 
educated mind, was a logical reasoner, with a style clear and 
classical, and an eloquent delivery." 

He took up his residence at Ashland, N. Y. , where a course of 
t\ phoid fever terminated his career Dec. 8, 1(857, aged 41 years.

mette Valley, Ore., Sept. 7, 1843, married Mary Lucretia Stunt, 
June 8, 1865, dan. of Rev. John Stout, a Southern Unionist, Ark. 

In infancy he arrived at Boston with the family, March. i< s 44. 
after a tedious voyage from Oregon, via Cape Horn. Aft< 1 
attaining the proper age, he attended the Wesleyan Academy, at 
Wilbraham, Mass., and in 1S57 moved with the family to Hills- 
boro, 111. In 1861 he enlisted in Co. E, 1st 111. Cavalry, and 
moved to the defense of Lexington, Mo., in which the regiment 
took part till water was cut off and ammunition exhausted, — 
surrendered, paroled and soon discharged. Again enlisted in 
1862 in Co. F, 126th 111. Infantry,— saw service at Columbus, Ky., 
Humbolt. Jackson, Bolivar and La Grange, much of the time 
serving on scouting parties, — took part in the capture of Vicks- 
burg, — ordered to Helena, Ark., and detailed to help man the 
guns of the nth Ohio battery, — took part in the capture of Little 
Rock, — ordered to Duval's Bluff, where he scouted, fought the 
enemy, malaria and mosquitoes until ordered again to Little 
Rock, and thence to Duval's Bluff, and there detailed as clerk in 
the Medical Purveyor's office. Mustered out of service, June 16,

After being discharged from service he removed with his 
father-in-law, Rev. Mr. Stout, to Dover, Ark., where they passed 
the stormy reconstruction period. On Dec. 4, 1865. while sitting 
in his own home, Mr. Stout was fired upon by unknown parti< s 
and severely wounded. He, with eight others, organized the 
Republican party in that county, and within one year, five ol the 
nine were ambushed and killed. Feeling that life was unsafe in 
that region, Mr. Lee returned to Illinois, and later moved to 
Kansas, thence to Oklahoma, his present home. He became 
converted during the war and subsequently became a local 
preacher of the M. E. church, — is also an extensive farmer at 
Lacey. Ok., (1899). Children :

Wichita, Kan. 8th Gen. 

692 William Henry, son of Rev. Daniel, 580, and Maria 
T. ( Ware ) Lee, horn Aug. 23, 1855, at Wilbraham, Mass., mar- 
ried, Jan. 29, 1880, Florence Genevieve Smith, horn Nov. 11, 
1859, at Castile, N. Y. She was a school and music teacher,— 
dau. of Benjamin F. and Wealthy ( Dana) Smith, and grand-dau. 
of Isaac A. Smith, of Duchess Co., N. Y. 

In 1S57 his parents removed to Hillsboro, 111., where he was 
educated at the public schools. At the age of 17 he went to 
Texas, — in 1877 settled in Caldwell, Kas., where he engaged in 
farming, and, later in the cattle trade, — in 1S84 was appointed 
deputy sheriff and served four years, — appointed cattle inspector 
by the Cherokee Strip Live Stock Association at Fort Reno, 
Indian Ter. —removed to Oklahoma at the opening of that terri- 
tory in 1SS9. That same year "was converted through the 
influence of the Salvation Army. — pioneered the work in Guthrie, 
Kingfisher, Hennessey and Enid with remarkable success, — later 
engaged in the same work in Wichita and Hutchinson, Kas. 
Since 1895, has been engaged in evangelistic labor in Kansas, 
Oklahoma, Missouri, New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire, 
during which time over 3,000 have professed conversion, in his 
meetings." His present home is at Wichita, Kas. 

For his success, he has been largely indebted to his gifted wife, 
who has accompanied him as assistant and musician. 

In Jan., 1898, he accidentally saw a copy of the book published 
by W. W. Lee, Secretary of the Lee Association, in 1884, and 
was able to give information which led to the discovery of the 
descendants of Elias Lee of Willington, Conn., — of which he 
was one, — a family of whom the kindred in Connecticut had lost 
all trace for nearly 100 years. He at once took an active interest 
in tracing them and obtaining their records, and to his efforts they 
are largely indebted tor the production of this work. Children :

18. Josiah, son of Jedediah, 7, and Lucy (Dodge) Leo, born 
Sept. 27, 1736, married, but the name of his wife has not been 
ascertained. It has been found that Mary Christophers, whose 
name is found on the New London records, and mentioned in 
the Lee book, p. 403, as the wife of this Josiah, was an error. 
She is supposed to have been the wife of Josiah. son of Dr. 
Isaac Lee. — See page 170-23, Lee book. 

"Josiah and John Lee were taken prisoners on ye schooner 
Rainbow, April, 175S." — A r . E. Hist, and Gen. Register, Vol. //. 

P- 273- 

We have no means of accertaining the identity of this John 
Lee, nor can we be quite positive in regard to Josiah, but we have 
no other Josiah whose age and other circumstances, seem to 
warrant his services at sea at that time. His name is found on 
the pay rolls of Connecticut troops in the French wars. 
Received in 1756, £5, 17s. ^d. , for twelve weeks and five days' 
service ; also, in 1759, received £15, 3s. 55^ el. for thirty-five weeks 
and five days' service under Captain Moses Hobby on both 
expeditions. His name is found in the index to the land records 
of Wellington, but the records are dilapidated, and the pag< 
referred to is missing. It is believed, however, that he sold his 
land in that town, and removed to Vermont. His name is found 
in the Adjutant-General's office of that State, as having served 
in the militia during the Revolutionary war, — served ten days in 
Col. Thomas Lee's regiment, Capt. Samuel Williams' company, 
Rutland, Vt. No further trace of him or his posterity, if he 
left any, has been found, though diligent researches have been 
made. Col. Thomas Lee died 1840 at Castleton, Vt. 

Willington. 4th Gen. 

19. Jedediah, son of Jedediah. 7, and Lucy (Dodge) Lee, 
born Sept. 20, 1738, married Hannah Fay when quite young and 
died before the distribution of his father's estate in 1759. I lis 
widow married again. "Mrs. Hannah Lee married Samu< ■' 
Rockwell, 1778." — Stafford Town Records.

120 DESCENDANTS OK ELIAS, 

In the petition of the executor of his father's estate, Feb. 9, 
1759, he is referred to as " Jedediah, deceased, or his legal repre- 
sentatives." He would not have been quite 21 years of age at 
that time, and it is inferred that his " legal representatives" might 
have been his own brothers and sisters, and perhaps his widow. 
His name is found on the rolls of the Connecticut troops in the 
French war of 1757, then 19 years of age, but the "Jedediah" 
found on the Revolutionary records was undoubtedly the son of 
Elias, 14. See No. 549.

20. Oliver, son of Jedediah, 7, and Lucy (Dodge) Lee, born 
Nov. 5, 1740, at Wellington, married Abigail Roe, Oct. 4, 1769. 
He marched to the relief of Boston at the time of the "Lexington 
Alarm," April, 1775, in Capt. Hayden's company, then a boy 15 
years of age. He died previous to the baptism of his youngest 
son, Oliver, as is found by Stiles' History of Windsor : " Oliver, 
baptized May 14, 1778, son of Abigail Lee, widow"; copied 
from the same work are the following names of his children : 

5th Gen. 
born Feb. 23. 1771. 
" Dec. 7, 1772. 
" July 23, 1774. 
" May 30, 1777. 
" April 15, 1778. 

Land transfers are found on 
record in Willington— the latest 
in 1773 — hence it is inferred that 
he left that town soon after. 

No date of death or settlement 
of estate is found on probate 
records. Diligent research has 
been made for his descendants, 
but without success.

Wellington, Ct. Hart land. Vt. 4th Gen. 

21. Zebulon, son of Jedediah, 7, and Lucy (Dodge) Lee, 
born Sept. 23, 1742, at Wellington, Conn., married Mary Taylor, 
at Northfield, Mass. She died March 21, 1810, aged 67 years. 
Although no record has been found, it is evident that he married 
again, for in the old cemetery at Hartland, Vt., is found the 
following inscription : "Mrs. Joanna Lee, second wife of Mr. 
Zebulon Lee, died June 25, 1825, aged 79 years." He died Jan. 
31, 1833, aged 91 years. Their tombstones may all be seen at 
Hartland. His name is found in Willington town records in 
1767, as "late of Coventry, now of Northfield, Mass.,' : which is 
evidence of his residence there for a time. 

He was in the ill-fated expedition to Havana in the French 
war in 1762, in which he served with the Connecticut troops, 37 
weeks and two days and received therefor £18-12-10^. It is 
not known at what time he moved from Connecticut to Vermont, 
but in 1770 his name is found on the records of Hartland, then 
known as Cumberland county, New York, before the organiza- 
tion of the State of Vermont. 

On the second Tuesday of March, 1770, being the third 
annual town meeting, he was elected overseer of the poor and 
constable, — the latter then an office of special importance, — v. 
elected to the latter office in 1771-72-73-76-78 -79 and So, — in 
1772 was elected "Field Driver," overseer of highways, and 
fence viewer, — was collector in 1774, surveyor ot highways and 
tithing man in 1775, and was elected to various offices for many 
years following. He was a member of the North Religious 
Society when the church was supported by a tax voted at town 
meeting. 

By records in the Adjt. -General's office in Vermont, it is found 
that he was called into service several times during the Revo-

year, his second wife had died in June previous, and tradition 
informs us that, feeling the infirmities of age, he relieved himself 
further care. 



Note, Town and family records are often found to be at variance, with no data

Willington, Conn., April 5, 1795, born Feb. 7, 1778, — dau. of 
Capt. John and Sarah (Lee) Johnson, ( Sarah Lee was dau. of 
Elias, 14, and Sarah [Royce] Lee). The record of the Johnson 
family on page 47 is incomplete. Keziah died July 6, 18 13.

1814, born March 28. 1780, at Sutton, Mass. She died Aug. 
29, 1859. 

As he married at Willington, it is evident that he lived there 
till after 181 1, and probably as late as 1815, when he moved to 
Pembroke, or Darien, Genesee Co., N. Y. The names of his 
children by his first wife, to 1811, are all found on the town 
records of Willington, as being born there, when the record 
ends. The tombstones of several of his deceased children maj 
be seen in the cemetery there. 

After 1815 his children are mentioned as born at Pembroke, 
N. Y. His name is found on the Willington records six tirrn 
from 1800 to 1815, in connection with land transfers. The tradi- 
tion is, that his brother, Dr. Elihu, had preceded him to the 
western part of New York, in Genesee Co., then a new country , 
and induced him to follow. Hedied, •'March 10. [830, al Darien,

many different sources, no two of which were alike in regard to dates or number of

and the regiment sent to camp at Chickamauga for drill and 
equipment, where they remained several weeks, then ordered to 
Santiago de Cuba, via. Tampa, Florida, where transports were 
in waiting. Twelve trains were loaded with troops, horses, 
baggage, etc. Before reaching Tampa they were ordered into 
camp 30 miles out, where they remained through the hot season. 
Typhoid fever broke out, and a large part of the troop was soon 
in the hospital. In September the troop was ordered to Hunts- 
ville, Ala., with Capt. Bargar in command of four troops, with 
but one-fourth of the men fit for duty. Being taken down 
with the disease himself, he was reduced to a low stage. His 
brother, Fred C, sergeant in the same troop, escaped the fever 
which was so prevalent.

ROLL OF HONOR. 



A patriotic family may, pardonably, indulge in a little honorable 
pride, for the number contributed to fill the ranks of the armies 
of their country. It is believed that our showing will compare 
favorably with that of other families of similar numbers. 

As families became widely scattered, certain it is, that many 
rendered service which is credited to various states from which 
we have no records, and certain it is, that full reports would 
swell the number of our Roll of Honor, in the various wars 
since the Revolution, to a great extent. 

The following names are to be added to those published in the 
Lee Book of 1897. None are entered unless well authenticated. 

Of those serving in the Spanish war, we are quite confident, 
that that the list would be more than doubled if fully reported.

NOTE. 

The publication of this Supplement was entered upon with a 
gloom}' financial outlook, and it was suggested by some that it be 
deferred to a "more convenient season," but other counsels 
prevailed and it was decided to appeal to the generosity of 
kindred for small amounts individually, which, if responded to 
reasonably, with other resources, would enable the committee to 
carry the work through. 

One enterprising lady suggested that one dollar be col- 
lected from each family named in the book. Her plan was 
approved, and herself named as collector. She collected one 
dollar from her own family, which she promptly remitted, while 
other families remain to be heard from ! 

The appeal to individuals met with a fairly generous response 
of one to fifteen dollars each, while others ordered several copies 
of both Lee Book and Supplement for friends, thus aiding the 
funds and extending the circulation. 

Among those who have liberally donated to the funds are the 
following who are entitled to the thanks of the Lee Association :

COMPLIMENTARY- 



Among the numerous complimentary notices of "John Lee and 
His Descendants" both in the public prints, and in personal 
letters, the following are selected as specimens : 

Hon. Charles A. Hoadley, State Librarian, Hartford, Conn.: 

About as fine a thing as I have seen in that line — well arranged, 
well illustrated and nicely printed and bound. 

Miss Emily T. Wilcox,— twenty years Teacher in Miss Willard's 
School, Troy,N. Y.: 

It seems to me an unusually attractive work of the kind. 
Everything is so clear and simple in arrangement, and the names 
so well indexed. 
R( v. Hamilton Lee, D. D., Martinez, CaL: 

1 write to express my satisfaction with the book. The contents 
are of great value, and the whole work is well put together, and 
I congratulate you on your success. 
/ittr/int/fon Hawk Eye, Iowa.: 

The Lee Genealogy is meeting with unusual success for a 
work of its nature, and has been voluntarily ordered and paid 
for at regular rate by many libraries of note, and historical 
societies throughout the country, and has received many flattering 
notices from the Press. 
/,'. i . Lucius 0- Lee, l>. I)., Missionary to Turkey: 

I have received the book — it is a monument of genealogical 
industry. It is of permanent value, and I shall not consider my 
library < omplete without it. 
Miss Susan .1. Peck, Teacher of Classics: 

rhe book has more " readableness" than any other Genealogy 
tli.it I ever tame across. It contains items of family history, 
which were obtained only by the most assiduous research and 
ti"in sources accessible only to those who were persistent in 
their efforts. 
//. <>. Ct>//i>is, Attorney at Law, Los Angeles, CaL: 

rhe more I read it, the more I am pleased with it, and the 

arlj dots it appear what an immense amount of labor 

put into it. I have had some experience in genealogical

work and thoroughly appreciate what has heen done in its publica- 
tion. The Lees owe the compilers a world of gratitude for their 
gratuitous labor. 

Rev. F. T. Lee, Pastor Douglass Pari: Church, Chicago: 

I supposed that a Genealogy consisted of a mass of figures 
and dry details, which no one cared to look at more than once, 
and am surprised to find a readable book, full of personal 
sketches, and items of history of the early Lees of two and a 
half centuries ago, which 1 never thought of before. The 
compilers must have ransacked all the musty old records to 
obtain them. 

Charles Avery Lee, Merchant, Denver, Col.: 

A month ago, I did not know that I had a living relative 
bearing the family name, but since receiving the Lee book, 1 find 
the "woods are full of them." 

Bradner W- Lee, Attorney at Law, Los Angeles, Cal.: 

I have examined a copy of this work. It gives evidence of 
painstaking care and thoroughness in its compilation, and the 
information which it affords to the members of the family is most 
valuable and interesting. Its arrangement is satisfactory, and 
the information sought is easily found, — a book which should be 
found in the hands of ever) 7 family. 
.1/' riden Republican — 1S97: 

The whole work shows a vast amount of patience 
and perseverance and many of its personal sketches read like 
romance. * * * One remarkable feature is the low price .it 
which i t is offered — S5.00 per single copy, — for a work of bon 
pages so substantially bound in cloth and gold. 

Mrs. /.'' v. John Blyman, Principal of Public Schools at Oshkosh, 
Wis.: 
* * * I have learned so many things from it about m) family 
and ancestry which I never knew, and there is so much to enj'03 
and to be proud of, too. * * * It ha 1 a veritable " feast 

for the soul " to me, and I would not be without it. 

Mrs. Graham Lrc, formf r Teacher, Hamlet, ///..• 

We have one copy of the Lee Book in the family and prizi it 
highly. Enclosed, please find draft oi u foui copies, — one 

for each of our sons, — amount saved from their pocket money. 
I want them to study it and learn about their family histor 
which has been collected as the result of so much resear< h. 
The introductory notes are full of interest, and our s<>n^ will 
ever give it a place on their library shelv< 



176 COMPLIMENTARY. 

Rev. John P. Lee, D. £>., Los Angeles, Cal.: 

* * * I have examined the Lee Book, and find it filled 
with valuable information, and no member of the family can 
afford to be without a copy. Instead of being called a Lee 
Genealogy, it should be styled, " Lee Encyclopaedia." A Supple- 
ment is being prepared, which will contain the names of several 
hundred of whom nothing was known when the book was 
published in 1897, — also many personal sketches of great interest. 
Both works should have an extensive circulation among the 
Lees. 

.V. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, Boston : 

* * * Is well gotten up and so arranged that easy reference 
may be had to any individual. 

Wesley T. Lee, M. I)., Homoeopathic Hospital, Boston: 

* I consider it one of the most complete and satisfac- 
tory publications of its character that I ever saw, and reflecting 
great credit on those who by untiring efforts have accomplished 
the work. I shall await with great interest the publication of 
the Supplement, — now nearly ready for the press. 
Rev. A. Lee Holmes, Stanstead, Que.: 

Permit me to express my surprise and admiration at the vast 
amount of painstaking labor which a cursory glance through the 
book reveals.
