Happy 207th Birthday, cousin Alexander Hamilton Lee!

The set of Hamilton, 2019

Alexander Hamilton Lee, my fourth cousin, 5 times removed, was born to Jonathan and Mindwell Hill Lee on 27 May 1813.  He was the great great grandson of our MRCA couple, John Lee and Elizabeth Crampton [my 8th great grandparents].  Obviously, cousin Jonathan and Mindwell were enchanted by the Secretary of the Treasury and patriot even though he died 10 years before the birth of the son who bears his name.   Cousin Alexander does not appear to have ever married or been the father of any children.   He died 5 July 1835 at the age of 22.

Another in the series of relatives with remarkable names — both cousin Alexander and his mother, Mindwell are on my list!

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.
