Capt. Thomas Lee - Memorial# 49503296
James,
I am a proven descendent of Capt. Thomas Lee through his son Needham and am a member of the DAR through this lineage. Would you give me permission to use your photograph(s) of the grave marker for personal use?
Regards,
Tricia

RE: Capt. Thomas J. Lee
Mr. East, Mr. Wm F. Franke from Birmingham, AL who first supported the Ditchley, Virginia birth theory, in 1944 resolved the untruth that was spread "far and wide" by Mrs. Jessie Boyle. Some of his information and much more regarding Capt. Lee is available from numerious files in the McClung Collection on the third floor of the East Tennessee History Center in Knoxville. In addition Mr WM F. Franke's complete genealogy research is in the Special Collections Department, Samford University Library, Birmingham, AL.

In addition this lie is confirmed by a vary well respected genealogy reseacher Mr. Prentiss Price from Rogersville, Hawkins CO TN his letters confirming Capt. Thomas J. Lee's birth in Nansemond CO VA and father John Lee, Esq. living in Johnston CO NC are in the same files in the McClung Collection.

Capt. Thomas J. Lee
Capt. Thomas J. Lee was not the son of Richard Lee and Judith Steptoe nor was he born in Ditchley, Northumberland, VA. Capt. Lee was born in Nansemond CO VA his father was John Lee, Esq. who later moved to Johnston CO NC. There is ample evidence of this fact located in the McClung Genealogy Collection in the Knox CO TN Library, and the Samford University Library in Birmingham AL. He was married twice 1st Mary
(?Smith) this union produced 5 children: Edith, Eleanor, Thomas,Jr., Micajah, Nicholas, 2nd Mary Bryan this union produced 8 children; Needham, Zipha, John, Winifred, Mary, William,Sr., Edward, James a total of 13 children. Both marrages occured in Johnston CO, the last 2 children were born in Hawkins CO TN. In 1771 early in the Revolutionary War Capt. Lee served as a Lt. in the Battle of Alamance, he was later promoted to Captain.
