Happy 225th Birthday, Uncle Chauncey!


From the Bible of Mary Sommers Lee

It was 225 years ago, 17 October 1794, that my third great granduncle, Chauncey Lee was born in Guilford, Connecticut, to William and Mary Summers Lee.  Chauncey was the eldest of the 8 children; the first four born in Connecticut; the last four born in New York.  The family migrated to Michigan in the early 1820s, settling in Oakland County.  Uncle Chauncy died 19 February 1825 in Bloomfield Township, Oakland County, Michigan, at the age of 30.  I have found no records of he having married.

The above page is from the Bible kept by his mother, Mary Lee.

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.
