      (2) The New London Journal Centennial 1875-1975, p. 187:

      Arriving in the New London vicinity in the spring of 1835 were the Lee brothers, Frederick and Hezekiah, who came from Ohio via Bond County, Illinois. They were joined the following year by their brothers John and Jeremiah, and their brother-in-law, Jacob Prickett, and his wife, the former Jane Lee. By the time the first land titles were filed at the Henry County Court House in 1840, the Lee family owned land in Sections 1, 11, 12, and 13 of New London Township; Section 12 was completely owned by Hezekiah, Frederick, John and Jeremiah Lee and Jacob Prickett. This is the section three miles north of New London, east of the Mt. Union road. The settlement and later the rural school there were called Leetown. The Lee families also bought land to the north and east and west, into Canaan Township and Des Moines County. John and Frederick Lee left many descendants in [the] New London area, a few of them still here. However, Harold and Roger Lee are apparently unrelated to them.

      (3) A household headed by Frederick LEE is listed in the 1830 census of Bond County, IL.

      Listed in Frederick's household are 1 free white male under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Assuming that Frederick is the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Frederick's wife is the free white female listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Frederick's household are children of Frederick and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of two sons (one of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and one of which sons would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1830 census).

      Assuming that Fredk is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that Fredk's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, she would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Fredk's household are children of Fredk and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of five sons (three of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, one of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, and one of which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1840 census) and one daughter (which daughter would have been born between 1830 and 1835, according to the 1840 census).
