Here's Jacob Lee's line as I have it entered so far into my FTM
Please note that not all my information is verified. I put it in as I
receive it and some is documented and some is not. For instance I have
Jacob Lee still alive after 1899 because I find that one of the daughters
is married at the home of Jacob Lee in 1898. I recently found that Jacob
and Eliza Lee were in Oregon (which is probably why my g-grandfather
William Raymond Lee and family came to Oregon for a few years in the late
1800's early 1900's before returning to MN). I don't remember what I wrote
you but I have a guardianship record for Alice V. Lee/Davidsons two sons,
and I have also ordered Jacob Lee's Civil War pension record from the
National Archives and Records Administration which might clear up the exact
number of children born to this couple etc (his son Albert R. Lee was
eligible to receive some portion of his father's pension and I have a court
record of his mother Eliza who had married Gilbert Ward (also found on a
record relating to Alice Lee/Davidson's children) as she was providing
proof that he was indeed the son of herself and Jacob Lee now deceased
(this record is dated 1903 but does not list a death date for Jacob). I am
interested in where the death dates that you have on your file for Jacob
and Eliza Lee are from (they may be more accurate than what I have).
I have photos of William R. Lee and his wife Emma and my grandfather,
son Leslie Ward Lee. I don't put vital info out on persons still living or
if I do it's just that they exist without putting in particulars.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you are interested in copies of records
such as I've mentioned above. There is a Tufts Kinsmen Association I just
ran across that might help further information on Eliza Jane Tufts who
married Jacob Lee I am checking into that also. I'll keep you posted when
I get Jacob Lee's pension record. I am most interested in the family of
Jacob Lee and his wife and secondly both of their ancestors.
