On Christmas Day, 1855, my great, great grandparents,  Charles Norton Lee and Esther Jenks, were married in the the home of her parent, Morris and Almira Botsford Jenks, in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan.   Charles (13 March 1833 – 23 October 1905) was the son of Horatio and Hannah Munn Lee.  Esther (24 October 1832 – 10 February 1918) was born and lived her entire life in Southfield, Michigan.  She and Grandfather Lee had six children: Emmer (1856), Effie Clarissa (1859) [my great grandmother], Lewellyn (1862), Hannah Almira (1864), Marietta (1870), and Ora (1874).  Both Grandparents are buried in the Southfield Cemetery.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
