      (2) According to several sources, John LEE, Sr. was born on December 26, 1797 in Franklin County, OH. OH did not become a territory until 1799, and did not become a state until 1803. Franklin County was formed in 1803 from Ross County, and Ross County was formed in 1798 from Adams and Washington Counties.

      (3) Lest It Be Forgotten, by Ed. M. Lee, A Grandson of John Lee [a manuscript printed in 1940 by Tower-Lee Co., Inc., printers, Los Angeles, CA], pp. 1-2:

      My purpose in writing this article is to set forth some traditions, remembrances, items of history and facts concerning John Lee, his parents, brothers and sisters and descendants, which supplements a Family Tree I have prepared. Much assistance in obtaining this information has been given by Marie Redfern, Ira Redfern and others. The original Family Tree which I made is quite large, 28 x 44 inches, and gives most of the information obtainable, such as dates of births, deaths and marriages, not only of the descendants of John Lee but of their husbands and wives as well.

      The letters and figures on this Tree were much too small to have an accurate reproduction made that would be legible, so I have prepared one especially for this purpose. In this it was necessary to abbreviate some names and omit many dates. However, I think you will find enough information on this copy to be of interest and to help you start a Tree of your own branch of the family if you desire. It was my desire that the information it contained be preserved for posterity and not pass into oblivion. In the preparation of this Tree undoubtedly mistakes have been made, but I have set forth the information to the best of my ability, and I hope that any serious errors may be corrected.

      The following is a copy of the obituary of my grandfather, John Lee:

      "John Lee, age 81 years, 8 months and 27 days, died at New London, Iowa, April 23rd, 1879, of old age. The subject of this notice was born in Franklin County, Ohio, December 26th, 1797, and removed to Bond County, Ill., when a small boy, with his parents, and when the War of 1812 broke out he enlisted as a soldier. Among other duties he was a member of the company which built the first Fort where the city of Peoria now stands, which was before there were any white inhabitants nearer than Vandalia, Chicago or Kaskaskia. In fact, it is not probably that at that time there were 1,000 white inhabitants in the State of Illinois, north of where the City of Alton now stands.

      "What a change in the lifetime of one man. He was also a soldier in the Black Hawk War of 1832. He was one of the pioneers of the State of Iowa, having come here and settled on the farm known as the John Lee farm, in New London township, this (Henry) county in 1836 where he endured the privations incident to a new country, and by economy and industry he accumulated a competence and raised a large family, consisting of four sons and eight daughters, nine of whom are yet living. He was married in Illinois in 1820 to Charity Smith, who died in 1865. They have 35 grandchildren living and 10 dead, and 22 great-grandchildren living and three dead. He had been a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church for 28 years. His funeral was attended by a large concourse of sorrowing friends, neighbors and relatives, who felt that a good man had passed away, one who had finished a long, eventful and useful life."

      Grandfather was living in our home when he died, and I remember much about him. I also attended his funeral. The birth sheet from his Bible was pasted in the family Bible of my father and mother, giving the dates of births and names of him, Grandmother, and their twelve children. From this I have obtained the names and dates found on the Tree.

      I have Grandfather's Pension Paper No. 4354 for the War of 1812. It is dated September 12, 1871, and was payable at the Fairfield, Iowa, Office at $8.00 per month. He had enrolled at Edwardsville, Ill. (Land Office), and served from May 16, 1814, to May 15, 1815, as a Private in Captain Jacob Short's Company of U.S. Mounted Rangers.

      On May 24, 1832, he enrolled in the Black Hawk War for a period of 90 days, serving as a Private in Captain Briggs' Company, 3rd Regiment, 3rd Brigade, of Illinois Mounted Volunteers. He was mustered out and honorably discharged from this service on August 17, 1832. These records have been verified at Washington, D.C.

      I also have Land Grant No. 4640 issued to John Lee of Henry County, Iowa Territory, at the Register of Land Office at Burlington, Iowa. It is dated 12-1-1841, and reads: "Of the Independence of the United States, part sixty-one-by the President, John Tyler, by B. Tyler, Sec.-recorded Volume 9, Page 492 by J. Williamson, Recorder of the General Land Office."

      Charity Smith, my Grandmother, was born in 1800, and it is my understanding, at Nashville, Tennessee. Bud Redfern told me that the name of Grandmother's father was Zadek Smith, and that a sister of hers married Grandfather's brother Fred. He also told me that she had a brother named Steadman who went from Bond County, Illinois, to Iowa Territory to take up a land claim, and that he plowed around and entered the piece that later became known as Lee Town Settlement. Steadman Smith then returned to Illinois, intending to put in a crop there, and then to return the next year to prove the Iowa land and pay the required fee of $1.25 per acre. For some reason he changed his mind and told the Lee brothers that if they would pay the fee they could have the land and that Grandfather could have the piece with the big grove. This the Lee brothers decided to do, moving there in 1836. (I believe the townsite of New London was not laid out until about 1837 or 1838.) There were Grandfather, his brothers Jeremiah, Elias, Hezekiah and Fred, his sister Jane who married Jacob Prickett, and their mother-their father Samuel Lee, having died three years before. (It is understood that Elias Lee returned to Illinois and died there.)

      Grandfather built the first large house on the piece with the big grove. It was a two story log cabin and was known as the John Lee Homestead. In it were born the last three of his twelve children, Mary (Polly Ann), Charity and Louisa. The other nine were born in Bond County, Ill. There were many Indians in Iowa at that time and I remember Father saying he visited their camp on Flint Creek; also, that Grandmother would often see one standing at the door, and when he would say, "Food-eat," she would feed him, after which he would leave. They were never molested by them. I believe that Great-Grandmother lived for a time with Jeremiah, and after that she lived with Grandfather until her death, July 6, 1843. She was buried in the Ferrel Cemetery. Incidentally, my mother and father were living on the John Lee Homestead, I presume with Grandfather, when I was born, and Grandfather went with them to New London the next year, 1872, where he died in 1879.

      John and Stephen Lewis, who married Charity and Mary Lee, were brothers, as were John and Isaac Redfern, who married Jane and Elmira Lee. Isaac Redfern served in the Mexican War. Bud Redfern says his father, John, was a splendid rifle shot but told him that Grandfather Lee was considered the best in Bond County, and that it was hard to get anyone to enter a Turkey Shoot if he was going to be in it.

      Uncle John Lee, when a young man, left for California during the Gold Rush of 1849, and was reported drowned, though details were never known nor the body recovered. My cousin, Isaac Redfern, told me that when Uncle John left for California he was considered the finest specimen of manhood in that section of Iowa. I have a picture of him taken before he left and Ike said that he had ridden on the horse to town with Uncle John the day it was taken.

      Aunt Louisa was living at our house when she was married to Newton Jones. I remember visiting them with Mother and Aunt Julia Crawford at O'Neil, Nebraska, where Aunt was in the millinery business. The last I heard of Aunt Louisa, she and her husband were living at Centralia, Washington. In 1921 when passing through there on a trip, I made inquiry but found that they had both passed away. I was directed to the Cemetery, where pictures were taken of their lot and stone.

      Very little is known about the parents of Grandfather John Lee, but Bud Redfern says his mother, Aunt Jane, told him that her grandmother, Mary Evelyn Lee, told her that she 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. According to history it frequently happened in those days that this method was taken for obtaining wives for the Colonists. After reaching America, Mary Evelyn was bonded out for four years by the Captain to pay for her passage. This was also a common custom. Later she married Great-grandfather, Samuel Lee.

      Through a historian of Greenville, Bond County, Illinois, I was able to obtain a copy of Great-grandfather Samuel Lee's Will, other legal papers, and much information in regard to the early history of Bond County. The records show that a Samuel Lee and Daniel Converse obtained a permit to build a dam and erect a mill on Shoal Creek near the old town of Ripley, which was on a highway between Vandalia, the capitol of Illinois, and Edwardsville, a Land Office. The mill sold several times and for the last seventy-five years of its existence was known as the Brown Mill. It was the last water mill to operate in the county. It has since been demolished. Near the site of the mill is the old burial ground known as the Brown Cemetery. Bud Redfern tells of visiting his Grandfather Redfern's grave in this Cemetery. He says that his mother told him that his grandfather, Samuel Lee, was also buried there and that this Cemetery was used by both the Redfern and Lee families, who were close neighbors. This no doubt accounts for two Redfern brothers marrying Lee sisters.

      The records of Bond County show that the first settlers came there about 1807, which would make Grandfather about ten years old if his parents were among the first. Bond County was first called St. Clair, was changed to Madison in 1813, and in 1817 was named "Bond." The historian stated that the first settlers built the Forts of Hill and Jones. At that time there were only about twenty-five white families in the county, which then extended six miles south and twelve miles east of its present boundaries and north to the Canadian border. The records also show that the Lee family dealt considerably in real estate in those days.

      Samuel Lee is referred to frequently as Senior, and records show that a Samuel Lee, Senior, and a Samuel Lee, Junior, served in the War of 1812. This would seem to indicate that there was another son who had died or had been killed. The Will mentioned a daughter, Polly Ann, which indicates there was another daughter than the one, Jane, who married Jacob Prickett. "Polly" seems to have been a pet name for Mary, for Mary Evelyn, Samuel's wife, is mentioned in his Will as "Polly" and Aunt Mary Lewis is mentioned in the family Bible as "Polly Ann." She evidently was named for her grandmother, Mary Evelyn.

      I am including with this brief history copies of some of the legal papers obtained from Bond County, Illinois. It is interesting to note that in the Record Conferring Power of Attorney, Samuel Lee refers to certain negroes in Randolph or other counties in North Carolina. This would infer a previous residence and holdings in that state. Other items mentioned in these papers offer possibilities of acquiring additional information.

      Much time has been spent in compiling the material set forth in this article and in making the Family Tree of John Lee and his descendants. It is my hope that it may be of interest to those now living and prove of some value to future generations.

      (4) Portrait and Biographical Album of Henry County, Iowa, Chicago, IL: Acme Publishing Co., 1888, pp. 555-556:

      JOHN LEE, deceased, a worthy pioneer of Henry County, Iowa, of 1836, was born in Franklin County, Ohio, Dec. 26, 1797, was a farmer by occupation, and removed to Bond County, Ill., in an early day, where he was united in marriage to Miss Charity Smith, daughter of Zedek Smith, Esq., who was born in Tennessee, in November, 1800. Mr. Lee emigrated with his family to Henry County, Iowa, in November, 1836, and located in what is now New London Township, on unsurveyed land. The exact date of his arrival at the site of his future home was Nov. 14, 1836. He made his claim on what is now section 11 of New London Township, where he made his home till late in life, when he removed to New London Village. His death occurred April 22, 1879, in his eighty-second year. His wife, an estimable Christian lady, who had reared a family of twelve children, four sons and eight daughters, died Oct. 11, 1865. The children all lived to be men and women, and are all living at this date (1887) except three. They were born in the following order: Eliza, Jan. 21, 1821; Jane, Oct. 12, 1823; Sarah, Oct. 26, 1824; Almira, April 10, 1826; Samuel, Nov. 4, 1827; John, March 25, 1829; Julia Ann, Jan. 2, 1831; William, Dec. 23, 1832; Thomas B., June 29, 1835; Polly Ann, Oct. 7, 1837; Charity, July 26, 1839, and Louisa, Sept. 26, 1841. The nine elder children were born in Bond County, Ill., and the three younger in Henry County, Iowa.

      In early life Mr. Lee was a Whig, and a Republican after the organization of that party. Both he and his wife were consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal Church from early life. He was an upright, honorable, industrious citizen, and deserves creditable mention in the annals of the pioneer days of Henry County. That this sketch is not more complete is not the fault of the writer, but owing to the indifference of certain members of the family, who could, but would not, take the trouble to supply the necessary information.

      (5) 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.

      John Lee (1797-1878) and his wife, Charity Smith Lee (1800-1865) brought nine children with them from Illinois in 1836, and three more were born here. The twelve children were: Eliza, Jane, Sarah, Almira, Samuel, John Martin, Julia Ann, William, Thomas B., Polly Ann, Charity and Louisa. In 1837, the John Lees built a double, two story log cabin, said to be the first two story building in Henry County (JOURNAL, November 4, 1937). It was in the center of the east edge of Section 11, New London Township, on land "at the head of Flint Creek" which he bought from his brother-in-law, Eaton Smith. It is now the Larry Van Syoc home, and recently Wesley Totemeier's home: The cabin was still standing in 1937, but has since been razed.

      Of John and Charity Lee's children: Eliza Ann (1821-1891) married William Miller; this was one of the county's earliest marriages, performed July 19, 1838, by Esquire N. C. Steele, according to the 1879 HISTORY OF HENRY COUNTY, page 402. William Miller (1810-1891) had served in the Black Hawk War and was among the early settlers in the New London area. William and Eliza Ann Miller had nine children. One son, John, died in the Civil War. Their son Marion Francis (1844-1899) married Lorinda Brown, daughter of pioneers David and Elizabeth Gallaher Brown, and they had six children. Their son George G. Miller married Lulu Mathews, and they were the parents of Almeda (Mrs. Ted) Whitham. Marion and Lorinda's daughter Lorinda May married Jesse Walker.

      Jane Lee (John and Charity's daughter) married John Redfern; John and Jane Redfern's grandson, Sam Redfern, now lives on their home farm in Section 36 of Canaan Township. Sarah Lee married John D. Hale, and their son Levi was the father of Arnold Hale and Nellie McCosh. Almira Lee married Isaac Redfearn [sic; note difference in spelling of surname], who filed a claim in Section 1, New London Township, in April 1846.

      John and Charity Lee's son Samuel (born 1827) married Louisa Burge and later Mary Jane Lease. Green Lee (1853-1937) was a son of the first marriage. He married Sarah Jane Stafford (1855-1939), farmed north of town, and retired in 1903 to live in the large house on Madison Street, north of Dr. Haist's office. Their five sons were Victor, Sam (1876-1962) who married Maude Chrissinger (1878-1965), Roy (1881-1969), Harry and Walter. A daughter, Laura (Mrs. Bert) Dohrman (1888-1918) died in the influenza epidemic. Samuel's four children of the second marriage were John, Florence (Mrs. J. E.) Peterson, Cora Lee, and Jennie (Mrs. Frank) Seaton. Roy Lee married Maude Wilson, and their children were Virgil, Ralph (1906-1973), Kenneth, Bert, Viva Quayle, and Laura Mathews. Ralph's daughter, Mary Lou (Mrs. Lloyd) Meyers, lives near Mt. Pleasant.

      John and Charity Lee's daughter Julia Ann married a Weller first, then James Crawford, Sr., and they were the parents of J. M. Crawford, Jr.

      William Lee (1832-1916) married Sarah Hardin and served in the Civil War. He was president of the first bank in New London, the New London Banking Company, in 1895, and his son William Wesley Lee (who died in CA in 1945) was the first cashier in 1890. William and Sarah's daughter, Charity Gannaway, died in 1902. A son Edward Lee, was in the hardware business in New London until 1906, when he went to CA.

      Thomas Bunce Lee (1835-1915), another son of John and Charity Lee, enlisted in the army and served under General Grant and later General Sherman until the close of the Civil War. He was in the siege of Vicksburg and other battles, made the march to the sea with Sherman, and marched in the victory review in Washington, D.C. In 1873, Thomas married Elizabeth Bridges, whose parents, Napoleon and Sarah Bridges, had come to Des Moines County from Illinois in 1836. The Thomas Lees farmed north of New London (where Larry Reid now lives) until, in 1881, they retired to New London (Dr. Leutkehans' house). Thomas served on the town council and was a member of the J. W. Hardin Post of G.A.R.

      Of the daughters of John and Charity Lee, Polly Ann married Stephen Lewis and Charity Ann married John Lewis who came to the New London area by 1840. Louisa Lee married Newton Jones.

      We have no records of descendants of Jeremiah Lee. Of Hezekiah and Amanda Lee's children, we have only that their son Samuel married Elizabeth Carter and had eleven children. Samuel died in 1918, age 88, and his wife was still living.

      (6) A household headed by John LEE is listed in the 1820 census of Ripley Township, Bond County, IL.

      Listed in John's household are 2 free white males between 16 and 26 years of age; and 1 free white female over 45 years of age.

      John was one of the free white males listed in the 1820 census as then being between 16 and 26 years of age. He was born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census.

      The other male listed in John's household as then being between 16 and 26 years of age was also born between 1794 and 1804, according to the 1820 census.

      The free white female listed in the 1820 census as then being over 45 years of age was born before 1775, according to the 1820 census.

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

      Listed in John's household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; 1 free white female under 5 years of age; 2 free white females between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Assuming that John 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 John'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.

      The free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 15 and 20 years of age seems to have then been too old to have been a child of John and/or his wife.

      Assuming that the other persons in John's household are children of John and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of two sons (which sons would have been born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1820 census) and four daughters (one of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, two of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, and one of which daughters would have been born between 1815 and 1820, according to the 1830 census).

      (8) Four households headed by a John LEE are listed in the 1840 census of Henry County, IA. The household apparently headed by "our" John LEE is listed near households headed by his brothers, Frederick, Hezekiah and Jeremiah.

      Listed in "our" John's household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white male between 10 and 15 years of age; 1 free white male between 15 and 20 years of age; 1 free white male between 40 and 50 years of age; 2 free white females under 5 years of age; 1 free white female between 5 and 10 years of age; 1 free white female between 10 and 15 years of age; 2 free white females between 15 and 20 years of age; and 1 free white female between 30 and 40 years of age.

      Assuming that John is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 40 and 50 years of age, he would have been born between 1790 and 1800, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that John'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 John's household are children of John and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of five sons (two of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, one of which sons would have been born between 1830 and 1835, 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 1840 census) and six daughters (two of which daughters would have been born between 1835 and 1840, one of which daughters would have been born between 1830 and 1835, one of which daughters would have been born between 1825 and 1830, and two of which daughters would have been born between 1820 and 1825, according to the 1840 census).
