Death: Sep. 1, 1785

On July 9, 1785, forty four members of the LEE family were among the total of 249 passengers and crew who sailed from Londonderry, Ireland, aboard the ship Faithful Steward. The ship ran aground at Cape Henlopen, Delaware on Sept 1, 1785 and only 68 of the total aboard survived. Among the survivors were six members of the LEE family: James LEE, the wife of one of his brothers and four cousins who apparently didn't carry the LEE name.

James LEE, born abt. 1707 and his wife Isabella Boscawen were the eldest of the family on this ill fated voyage. They, as well as 4 sons and two daughters, drowned. The James LEE who survived, was their grandson. His parents, whose names are unknown were among those lost.
