Remembering 4 times Great Grandmother Lee.

Mary Summers Lee passed away on 8 May 1860, 159 years ago, in Farmington, Oakland County, Michigan.  She was laid to rest beside her husband, William Lee, in the Quaker Cemetery on Gill Road in that same township.  This is Grandmother’s headstone after its recent restoration.


Mary, wife of William Lee, Died May 8, 1860, aged 86 yrs.

Mary Summers was born on 15 August 1773 in Old Hebron, Connecticut.  She married William on 27 May 1793.  The pair had eight children: Chauncy (1794), William (1796), Harvey (1798), Horatio (1800) [my 3 times great grandfather], Mary Ann (1804), George (1806), Richard (1808), and Norman (1811).   The first four were born in Guilford, Connecticut, and the next four were born in West Bloomfield, Ontario, New York, as the family made their westward migration.  It was here in West Bloomfield, New York, that Horatio married Hannah Munn prior to the family migration to Oakland County, Michigan.
