      (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 Hezekiah LEE is listed in the 1830 census of Bond County, IL.

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

      Since only one male is listed in Hezekiah's household, he must be the free white male listed in the 1830 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age. He was born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1830 census.

      Assuming that Hezekiah'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 person in Hezekiah's household is a child of Hezekiah and/or his wife, that child would have consisted of a daughter who was born between 1825 and 1830, according to the 1830 census.

      [Note by compiler: Jeremiah LEE was born on August 11, 1816. On September 25, 1835, when the above-described patent was issued, he was only 19 years of age, and was a minor. The age of majority at that time was 21.]

      (6) A household headed by Hezekiah LEE is listed in the 1840 census of Henry County, IA.

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

      Assuming that Hezekiah 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.
