Robert H. Lee or "Bob" as he was called was my third great grandfather. He was born in Tennessee around 1806. He settled in the Missouri River Valley of Ray County. Here is where he met and then married Malinda Brown on March 5, 1829 in Ray County. She was the daughter of Micajah and Catherine McDowell Brown. Bob and Malinda made their home there in Grape Grove, Ray County for the next twenty years. During this time Malinda gave birth to eight children. A son, James, was born with mental defects and Malinda cared for him until her death. In 1850 Bob moved the family to Pettis, Platte County, Missouri where one more child was born. Around 1860 they moved again and lived with their son, Abel, and his family in Davis, Caldwell County, Missouri. Bob died sometime while they were living here. I have never found a death record or a headstone for Bob, but I feel certain he is in a Ray County, cemetery. In 1870 Malinda is living with another son, Wiley, and his family. In the 1880 census, which is the last one Malinda is found in. She is taking care of her son, James who is now thirty-four years old. They are back in Crooked River, Ray County, Missouri. Malinda dies here, but no grave stone has ever been found.
