Descendants of John Lee of England

Generation #5: Siblings of Robeson Lee

Because of the many possibilities of lineages for the Lee families of Mississippi, all of the families who are believed to be descended from Samuel Lee, Sr. of Wayne Co MS are presented in greater detail.

The following lists children which were enumerated in the Lee Family Bible (B), mentioned in records as married (M), found in the 1850 Wayne Co Census (C), or are unconfirmed (U) but probable descendants of Sam Lee.

    Robeson (4Samuel, 3Zachariah, 2Joshua, 1John) Lee of Wayne Co MS

According to the 1820 Wayne Co MS Census, we are missing one son b. 1810 to 1820.

    Children with Sarah Shay

Research Note: Old Sam named his firstborn son after his father, Zachariah Lee b. 1745 NC.
