The "Miller Lee Letter" :

Rusk City March 30, 1850

I, Miller Lee, was born on the first day of July 1769 in Buckingham Co. in

the State of Virginia. My father's name was Richard Lee, raised in

Buckingham Co. and lived there most of his life until just before he died.

He moved to Ballston, near Arlington, Va. There my mother died. He then

moved to Jackson, Tn. where he died.

His father came from England, his mother from Wales. My mother's name before

marriage was Elizabeth Miller. Her father and mother were from Germany. She

was born in the State of Delaware and she moved to Virginia. The Indians

killed her father. Her mother died when she was about 12 years of age. She

was my father's second wife.

Richard was the first child, then Miller, John, BARNETT, Agnes, Arthur who

died at three weeks of age, then Stephen, the last.

My wife's father was James Carson. Her mother before marriage was Mary Helm.

They were raised nearby so to the north. Her parents moved to Campbell Co.

Va. There James Carson died. His widow went to West Tenn. There she died at

about 94 years of age. James Carson was 70.

My wife before marriage was Margaret Carson. We were married in Campbell

Co., Va. on 6th of Jan. 1798. About a year later moved to Logan Co. in a few

more years to Butler Co. Lived there about 12 years. Then back to Logan Co.

on or near the "Big Whipporwill." Lived there three years, then to Christian

Co. There we buried our 8th child, 11 months old. Stayed there three years.

Had another son and in the Fall of 1818 moved to Tallageda Co. Last of Feb.

A.D. 1847 moved to Caddo Parish, La. Then last of Jan. 1848, moved to Rusk

Co. on or near Main Rabbit Creek.

A note by the transcriber says: "Miller Lee was 81 when he wrote the letter

and adds that there is more in the letter but no names or dates."
