    Notes 
    • (1) According to several sources, Mary Evelyn (LEE) was born in Wales. The theory that she was born in Wales seems to have been based upon family history that "Mary Evelyn Lee . . . with other young women attended a dance given on a ship off the coast of Wales, and that without their knowledge of what was happening the ship quietly left port and sailed away with them, taking them to the American Colonies." The compiler has not found any evidence confirming this family history.

      It appears from the 1880 census of New London Township, Henry County, IA, that Mary's then living sons, Frederick LEE and Jeremiah LEE, believed that Mary was born in PA. Accordingly, unless and until the compiler finds credible evidence showing that Mary was born elsewhere, the compiler will show Mary's birthplace as PA.

      LEE . . .

      Mary, wife of Samuel LEE, d. 8 July 1843, in the 66th year of her age.

      [Note by compiler: Based on the information set forth above, the compiler has calculated the year of Mary's birth to have been about 1777.]
