Delilah & John Lee B: 1765 of Orange, IN D: 1846 Orange, IN
Hello Lee family researcher,
It appears that there are many families trees with John Lee of Orange county Indiana. A probate record exists showing that his wife is Delilah and there is a daughter with the name Delilah. I am doing research on this line and need help identifying any information on the mother (spouse of John Lee) Delilah. A son of JOhn & Delilah named Clement Lee b 31 Jan 1799 in Orange Co, IN is my ggg grandfather. Some family trees have William Lee of Cumberland county KY/VA or Northumberland, , VA, USA b 11/15/1765 D: 1825 in Pikeville, Bledsoe, TN as the father of John Lee but the birth date of John Lee is 1764. This is the problem that I am trying to correct so that we have the right dates and perhaps the right person. Some have a Delilah married to a Thomas Lee but this Delilah is not the same person. I don't wish to offend anyone I am just trying to keep from perpetuating errors and save us all from extra work. If anyone has documentation of that will shed light on this family that will help. even if the information helps to document errors that is a place to start. Is there a person in Paoli, IN that can check for a Delilah Lee in any cemetery? Could someone tell me if there are archived newspapers that could identify when Delilah died?
I am seeking to locate all documenting sources so that we don't perpetuate any unintended errors. Do we have any takers?
