I’m trying to connect a William Lee, who first shows up in 1817, Botetourt County VA, when he is married at age about 32. There were other Lee’s in Botetourt at that time, but I’ve not been able to find a connection. One of these Lee’s was Zachariah Lee, could he be of the same Lees, in or from, Rockingham County VA, a Zachariah Lee, was there in this time frame, and I think he was from a “large” family, and had a several sons himself.
William Lee married a much younger lady, and they removed to Fentress County TN. There could be a Lee family association with the following names, Oney (young wife’s maiden name), Madera, Bartholet, Quinlan or Vanquelon, or even Newton.
Any help, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Al
