In memory of Alexander Hamilton Lee …

On this date, 5 July, in 1835, my fourth cousin, 5 times removed, Alexander Hamilton Lee passed away.  And 185 years later, Disney+ is streaming a revolutionary musical about the man for whom he was named.


So, of course, this obscure relative became the topic of today’s blog.

Cousin Alexander was born 27 May 1813, to Jonathan and Mindwell Hill Lee, the youngest of 11 children.  Other than his mother’s name probably showing up as one of my name curiosity blog entries, I have very little information other than the Birth and Death dates for this very distant cousin with the very famous namesake.

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.
