Happy 246th Birthday, Grandmother Lee!

Mary Sommers , my 4th great grandmother, was born on 15 August 1773, in Old Hebron, Connecticut, to William Sommers and his wife whom I have not as yet been able to identify.   Mary was wed to William Lee on 27 May 1793.  The couple migrated from Connecticut to New York to Michigan as is evident from the birth locations of their eight children: Chauncy (1794 – Guilford, Connecticut), William (1796 – Guilford, Connecticut), Harvey (1798 – Guilford, Connecticut), Horatio (1800 – Guilford, Connecticut) [my 3 times great grandfather], Mary Ann (1804 – West Bloomfield, New York), George (1806 – West Bloomfield, New York), Richard (1808 – West Bloomfield, New York), and Norman (1811 – West Bloomfield, New York).  By the early 1820s, the entire family had settled in Farmington Township, Oakland County, Michigan.  Grandfather passed away on 1 June 1840.   Grandmother lived almost 20 years longer and passed away on 8 May 1860.

Both Grandmother Lee and Grandfather Lee are buried in the newly restored Quaker Cemetery in Farmington, Michigan.

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.
