Michael Lee b.1830 fought in the Civil war from 1861-1865. After the war he remained in Lousiana, purchased land and cared for his family.
Tracing the family was not an easy task, considering that families were seperated during slavery and after the Civil War.
Our first Family Reunion will be held on Sept. 24,25,and 26th, 2010 in Jefferson Parish Louisiana. We are still searching relatives of Paul Lee, b. 1864, Betsy Lee b. 1868, Charlotte Lee b. 1870, Clamar Lee b. 1872, Madeleine Lee, b. 1873, Mary Lee b. 1878 and Michael Lee b. 1880.
