Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 5, 1856
Barbour County
Alabama, USA
Death: Aug. 11, 1917
Bienville Parish
Louisiana, USA

Mary Francis Lee was born on January 5, 1856 in Unionville, Barbour County, Alabama to Nancy Caroline Wise (1832-1897) and Harvey Melde Lee (1823-1902). Her paternal grand parents were Sarah Ann and James B Lee. Her maternal grand parents were Martha Ann Millican (1817-1880) and Epriam S Wise (1798-1822) a descendant of Sir Rychard of Cuddlestone Wise, Devon, Cuddlestone, England, United Kingdom.

On November 27, 1875, in Arcadia, Bienville Parish, Louisiana, Mary Francis married John Henry Johnson, born November 21, 1841 in Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. He was the son of Amanda Ivey (1823-1910) and James Rogers Johnston, Sr. (Note: family name was changed from Johnston to Johnson when John Henry and his brothers, James Rogers, Jr "Toil", and Marion, marched to Georgia to join the confederacy; along the way Toil decided to change his name to Johnson. The family followed suit as both Toil and Marion were killed in the Civil War, perhaps in their memory.)

Rogers Roland born Sep 1876 died 1876, an infant
Minnie Lee born 01 Mar 1878 died 11 Nov 1884 age 6
