Happy 226th Anniversary Grandparents Lee

On 27 May 1793, William Lee and Mary Summers, my four times great grandparents, were wed in Guilford, Connecticut.  Their union produced 8 children:  Chauncey (1794), William (1796), Harvey (1798), Horatio (1800) [my three times great grandfather], Mary Ann (1804) [by this time the family had removed West Bloomfield, Ontario, New York], George (1806), Richard (1808) [who eventually migrated with the family to Michigan and then on to Utah and California], and Norman (1811).

The family migrated to Michigan in the early 1820s, with William and Mary settling in Farmington, Oakland County.  Both William and Mary are buried in Quaker Cemetery, Farmington, Michigan [Headstones restored in 2018]:

William Lee died June 1, 1840 aged 69 year 10 months.

Mary – wife of William Lee died May 8, 1860, aged 86 years


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.
