Relatives of Mary LEE (nee WALSH) 1821-1909 , daughter Evelyn LEE, son John Benjamin Stedham LEE (d 1881) and Charles LEE
Mary WALSH, born at Kilknock Estate, county Monaghan, Ireland on 14 February 1921. Father was John WALSH (Master of the Orange Lodge), mother UNKNOWN. Mary married in 1844 supposedly to a George LEE(?) and was supposed to have had 7 children? Her obituaries say he was ‘organist and vicar choral at Armagh Cathedral' in Ireland. However letters from the Dean of Armagh state that the records show no ‘George' but only a ‘James Lee'. James was however the father of Mary's nephew, David Lee , Town Hall organist for many years in Melbourne, making James Mary's brother-in-law.
She migrated to Adelaide Australia in 1979 with her daughter Evelyn (19yrs). A son (John Benjamin Stedham) was already living here but died in 1881 and another known son Charles lived in Liverpool, UK. No other children so far, have been found.
I do know by Death Announcements in the Adelaide papers that my Grandfather Alfred M Poland placed a Death Notice in the daily paper after Evelyn died and he stated that she was his aunt. My Great Grandfather ? Poland married a Lily Lee in the UK in the 1800s. Evelyn was in her 77th year when she died,.
I have all the history I can find, in the South Australian Historical and Public Library items but need to find someone who is a relative mainly from Ireland or maybe Liverpool where Charles may have ended up living.
