167th Anniversary of Cousin William and Matilda Ada Power Lee

On 23 December 1852, my first cousin, 4 times removed, William Lee married Matilda Ada Power, the daughter of Ira and Amy LaPhine Power, in Farmington, Oakland County Michigan.   William was born 17 August 1827, in Mendon, New York, to Harvey and Mary Frances (Fanny) Knight Lee.  He migrated with his parents and the two older of his 9 siblings to Michigan in the 1828.   He was the last of the children born in New York.  Matilda Ada, also born in New York, on 21 May 1825, migrated with her parents to the same area of Oakland County, Michigan.

William and Matilda were the parents of three children: Eugene Jesse (1854), Ira Judson (1856), and Mary L (1858).   William died 3 December 1902.  Matilda died almost a year earlier  on 3 January 1902.   Both are buried in the Wixom Cemetery in Wixom, Oakland County, Michigan.

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.
