On 23 May 1770, in Guilford, Connecticut, William Lee and Eunice Hotchkiss were married. These were my five times great grandparents. Grandfather was a tanner by trade and he also served as a Private in the Revolutionary Army in Connecticut. I am applying for a supplemental Sons of the American Revolution entry with him as my ancestor.
He and Grandmother had eight children: William (1771) [my 4 times great grandfather], Reuben (1773), Tim (1775), Charles (1777), Sarah (1782), Elon (1786), Charles (1788) [his same named brother died the previous year], and Jonathan. As is apparent, child bearing took a break during the war!
Both grandparents lived out their lives in Connecticut, Grandfather died on 29 April 1795, and Grandmother on 27 February 1827. It was their son, William, who started the family migration that eventually settled in Oakland County, Michigan.
