Uncle Norman (1811-1885)



Norman Lee, my 4th great uncle, passed away 134 years ago on 5 January 1885 in Mason, Ingham County, Michigan.  Uncle Norman was born 28 November 1811, in West Bloomfield, Ontario County, New York to William and Mary Summers Lee.  With his parents he migrated to Oakland County Michigan in the early 1820s.  In the  1850 Products of Agriculture Census – Town of Farmington:
Acres (I) 55
Acres (U) 25
Land Value $2,000
Livestock Value $200

The 1857 Plat Map Transcription for Farmington Twp, Oakland County, MI, states Norman Lee owned 80 acres in section 30 of that Township.

Uncle Norman never married.  He was laid to rest next to his parents in the Quaker Cemetery in Farmington, Michigan [headstones recently restored]:

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.
