"I am looking for my Lee great-great-grandfather"

Journal by pathseeker

I am looking for my unknown Lee ancestor who was shot
and killed between 1884-1894. He was married to Rafee
Lucinda Campbell and they had a small daughter Rosa
who was around 2 years of age when he was shot by a rider
on a horse. A man rode by his house one day while he was
in the front yard and shot him; later that day the man
came back by while Lucinda Lee was outside and stopped
and threw a pouch of money to her and told her "sorry
lady I shot the wrong man". That is the only story of
g-g-grandfather Lee that we know of. He was married to
Lucinda and lived in Black Jack Grove, Texas during the
time their baby Rosa was born. Lucinda left the area
and went to Indian Territory to teach school and lived
there during the early 1900's and she then remarried to
William Butler and lived in Arkansas and Oklahoma area.
To the best of my knowledge she and g-g-grandfather Lee
were both part Native American. Lucinda and William
Butler had several children together and he ran off
with a younger woman. Lucinda never remarried and she
lived the last of her days around Fort Smith and Van Buran
Arkansas area. She is buried somewhere there and so is
her daughter Rosa who married George Armer and she died
as an Armer. We have no idea what our Lee's first name
is or where he is buried. If anyone has any information
on this family your knowledge will be most appreciated.
