My name is Ernie Lee and I was born in Monroe County Tennessee. My family on both sides goes back many generations. I am related to Bucky Hunt who first settled the area. Family is very important to me and as a youth I always heard wonderful family stories. Like many of us from East Tennessee, we are story tellers. I was trained and worked as an attorney for many years. Now I teach high school social studies. I grew up in Atlanta and now live in Savannah,GA. This is a great place for history and I would be glad to find graves in the area and send photos. I get back to East Tennessee twice a year for family reunions, over the 4th of July and the Saturday before Christmas. I do genealogy work over the summers, I first came to this from hearing stories from my grandmother. She told me stories about family and I began to write these down. This website has been helpful in helping me to track down family and put dates with names.
