Research/Writing in Progress: Lee

(Last updated 1/5/16)

Research questions:

HOW WERE THOMAS & CATHERINE LEE OF SOMERSET CO. RELATED TO  ALEXANDER & MARTHA HAMMEL LEE, EZEKIAL LEE, AND OTHER AREA LEES?

WERE THE LEES IRISH AND DID THEY COME TO PADDYTOWN, TURKEYFOOT TWP.?

WHERE DID THEY ORIGINATE?

WHAT HAPPENED TO CATHERINE’S HUSBAND, THOMAS, SR., AFTER THE 1930 CENSUS? WHO WAS “INSANE” AND WHAT DID THAT MEAN?

Newly discovered resources:

VARIOUS U.S. CENSES 1800 ON FOR SOUTHERN SOMERSET COUNTY

Articles begun:

CURRENTLY RESEARCHING AND WRITING THE STORY OF THE MARRIAGE OF ANNIE LEE TO CHARLES KRAUSE.

Speculation:

OUR LEES WERE ENGLISH OR IRISH, ORIGINATING IN EUROPE AND FIRST SETTLING IN EITHER EASTERN PA OR VA.
