James Alva Lee of MS and TX

I'm researching James Alva Lee born 1846 in MS. I believe his father was Thomas Lee born about 1820 in SC, married Jemah or Jeemah Byrd, daughter of Elam Byrd. James' family moved to Texas and lived in the Liberty County/Cleveland Texas area. My grandmother was Harriet Evans (Hattie) Lee, James' daughter.

Researching Several Southern Families.

I'm researching the Moody family of Dinwiddie and Chesterfield Counties in Virginia and related families which include - Fitzgerald, Wilkerson, Gage, Goode, Nunnally, Richardson, Crowder and Cheatham.

Also the Purswell family of Texas and Alabama. Connected families include Lee, Isaacks, Beaty, Condrey, Stivender, Ott and others.

I'm also researching my wife's family - Baker from VA and KY. Related families are Moore, LeMarr, Mansfield, Carroll and others from VA, KY and TN.

See my website for details on all of these families:


The site includes more than 100 old photographs from around 1900 up to the 1950's.
