Elizabeth H. Scott Lee

  • Birth 1761 Fauquier County, Virginia, USA
  • Death 19 Mar 1838 Howard County, Missouri, USA
  • Burial Armstrong, Howard County, Missouri, USA
  • Memorial ID 71719622

Elizabeth was the daughter of Captain William Scott(1749-1789) and Ann Mason(1747-1803). She married a Richard Bland Lee(1753-2/10/1820)but not the Richard that was the brother to Light Horse Harry Lee of revolutionary war fame. He reportedly died in 1827. There seems to be several men with the exact same name and generation. Elizabeth`s, Richard Bland Lee is believed to be buried in Madison County, Kentucky on his 352 acre plantation along Licking Creek.
She died much later than he did and she ended up in Missouri to live with her son Richard Washington Lee(9/15/1796-8/5/1882)and family. Elizabeth Scott Lee is believed to be the sister of Winfield Scott a famous U.S. General from Petersburg, Va..
Much research needs to be done on these early family connections. As already stated many people think that this Richard Bland Lee is from the famous Lee families of Virginia but this compiler does not. Most of my life it was rumored that our families where related. Maybe very distantly but that is all. Any help out there? More later as time permits!
