Remembering 2nd great granduncle Volney Lee

My 2nd great granduncle, Volney Lee, passed away 110 years ago on 27 November 1909, in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.  Volney was born 4 December 1838 in Oakland County, Michigan, to my 3rd great grandparents, Horatio and Hannah Munn Lee.   He was the 8th of their 12 children, and the brother of my great great grandfather, Charles Norton Lee.   On 6 May 1858, in Oakland County, Michigan, Uncle Volney married Cornelia Waters, the daughter of John and Mary Jane Allen Waters.   They were the parents of three children, James Waters (1857), Arthur Chalmers (1863), and an unnamed baby (1868).  Aunt Cornelia passed away in 1892.   Both she and uncle Volney were interred in Woodlawn Cemetery in Detroit.

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.
