Stephen was listed on the tithables in Goochland at thirteen as a tobacco farmer with his father, John. Stephen later moved with his family to Bedford Count and later to Henry (now Franklin). Many tobacco farmers moved when the land played out and cheap land was offered further west. They moved to Kentucky about 1793 and settled in Pulaski County. They were heavily involved with the Baptist Society and were charter members of the White Oak Baptist Church, donating the land for the church building. Stephen was an active supporter of the Continental Army with goods and is listed as a Patriot for the revolution. He and Anna are buried in the Lee cemetery in Nancy, KY.

I'm the fourth of nine children of Stephen and Anna Lee. Although my parents settled in Kentucky, I continued on to Tennessee where I met Nellie Long and later married her in 1798. When the call for volunteers came in 1812, I enlisted and served with honor with Dyer's mounted gunmen as a bugler. We fought bravely in several battles including the Battle of New Orleans which was won against great odds.
Lewis Henry died January 15, 1815 as a result of injuries incurred during this conflict..
