Early Lee's - to the Present

FOREWORD:

Below are listings of the ancestors of Louise, Noble and Bill Reid. This line is of our grandmother Susie Rachel Lee, who met and later married our grandfather Andrew Levi Reid. In this family history, there are three ancestoral lines from Col. Richard Lee I of 1618 and Anne Constable. Their son Richard Lee II 1647 starts the Stratford line. Their son Hancock Lee 1653 starts the Ditchley line and their son Charles Lee 1656, starts the Cobb’s Hall line. We and those who connect to us are descendants of the Cobb’s Hall line. The Stratford line has such famous names as Richard Henry Lee, Francis Lightfoot Lee, (signers of the Declaration of Independence), and General Robert E. Lee. a famous Confederate Civil War General. To be related to such famous people is really awsome in its scope of history. From the famous to the common, we all meet at Richard Lee I of 1618. Our future generation can trace their linage back in past history, to the founding of these very United States.
Note: Names with underlines are the linage we descend from John Lee. There are a lot of John Lee's in this family line. You can make your way through by some of the information posted by their name. Descendants of John Lee:

Richard became clerk of the Quarter Court within the Secretary of States office. After the early death of Richard, Anne remarried again to Edmund Lister. Richard was often referred to as Richard The Immigrant.
A passage written in 1771 by his son William, tells that Richard of a good family from Stropshire, England, and some time in the reign of King Charles the First, went over to the Colony of Virginia as Secretary, and one of the Kings Privy Council. He was so pleased with the area that he settled there. He returned to England for a while, and then came back to Virginia.

10. JOSEPH DUDLEY REID (SUSIE RACHEL LEE, JOHN WASHINGTON LEE, BENJAMIN JEFFERSON LEE, JOHN LEE, JOHN LEE, JOHN THOMAS LEE, CHARLES LEE, COL. RICHARD LEE I, JOHN LEE), As of now we do not know his birthdate, but he died on July 08, 1937. He married LILLIAN EVERLINE LEE, daughter of William Edward Lee and Elizabeth H. Rhodes. The history on uncle Dudley, is that he was killed during a prison break at Huntsville, Texas. It is claimed by the prison that he was shot trying to escape, and that he had a gun in his hand at the time. The story that was passed down from the family is that he was a trustee and had full access to the whole prison. He was due for release in a few months, but was supposedly caught in a crossfire from some other prisoners trying to escape. His grave lay unmarked for almost 70 years until the efforts of our cousin Ralph Lee started a search for his burial site. Through his determined effort, there is a headstone that marks his grave in the Eastham prison cemetery at Lovelady, Texas.
