|Birth: ||Sep. 25, 1866|
|Death: ||Jul. 8, 1913|
Daughter of Joseph Cluff and Phoebe Elizabeth Bunnell.
When Robert Edmond Lee was a young man, he moved to the Gila Valley where he met and married Alphretta Rebecca Cluff 12 December 1885 in Pima by Stake President Christopher Layton.
Alphretta Rebecca was born 25 September 1866 in Provo, Utah County, Utah, to Joseph Cluff and Phoebe Elizabeth Bunnell. When she was twelve years old her parents moved the family first to Show Low, Arizona and later, in the summer of 1879, to Smithville, Arizona. In 1883, when she was seventeen, she moved into the new Cluff family home in Central.
Robert and Alphretta made their home in Central where their first child, Robert Edmund Lee, Jr., was born 22 November 1887. The family moved soon afterwards to Mancos, Colorado for several years before moving to Fruitland, New Mexico, near La Plata, New Mexico. By 1898 the Lee family had moved back to Central where two more of their children were born. Robert Edmond had a blacksmith shop on Central Road and also farmed and had goats. By 1910 the family had moved to their goat ranch near Globe, where Robert also worked in the copper mines. While living in Globe, Alphretta Rebecca passed away 8 July 1913 and was buried in the Central Cemetery.
Robert Edmund passed away in Payson, Arizona 24 April 1929 (death certificate states 23 May 1928) and was buried in the Central Cemetery next to his beloved wife.
Robert Edmond and Alphretta Rebecca were the parents of seven children: Robert Edmond Jr. (married Alvira Higgins), Joseph Danial (married Harriet F. Grover), Arthur Lee (married Amy Valine Butler and then Rhoda Richardson), Helen Laurine (married Julius Peter Christensen), Marion Franklin (died unmarried), Goldie Marie (married first Robert J. Whalley, then Clarence Kay Naff) and Carl Hall (married Lucille Huber).
