I am researching my Lee family ancestry on my mothers side. My direct Lee ancestry line comes from the King George County, Virginia area. James Lee (????-1790) is the furthest Lee confirmed ancestor of my direct line. Because of very good circumstantial evidence that a John Leigh, son of William Leigh and Mary Hamilton of the Carrickfergus, Ireland Leigh ancestry line that immigrated to the United States from Ireland, could his father but complete speculation at this point. My cousin William "Bill" Lee had his DNA tested and the results showed 100% matches to confirmed descendents of William Leigh (1687-1740)and Mary Hamilton of the Carrickfergus, Ireland Lee/Leigh line. This line is well documented in the LDS web site. Two grandsons of this William Leigh; William and Francis Leigh immigrated to Philadelphia, PA on or about 1770 and from there their lines split. Francis stayed in the Pa. area and William migrated south to the Carolinas. There is much written about Francis and his descendants in Mercer County, PA. History written by Francis Bazley Lee and a portrait of Francis Bazley Lee which is also interesting to see. A large amount of information on this site is a compilation of other researchers work. I have been able to confirm most of the sources. There is some research on this site that still needs confirmed and every attempt is made to do so but I will include what I think to be credible evidence. I'm hoping this would be a good way for visitors to review the information and supply any evidence supporting the findings.
My original goal for this site was to share my research with my immediate family. After about a year or so of researching my Lee line and making contact with other distant Lee cousins via DNA matching or other genealogy web sites that this is much bigger then just my small branch out of King George County, Virginia. So please enjoy the web site and I look forward to hearing from anyone who has any questions, comments, information, etc. As you will see there is a photo album section on the site. There are a few Lee family's that are currently compiling photos to submit to site. So if you have any photo's that you would like to share please email them to me with any information you have on the photo and I will be glad to add it to the photo album.
