About Jehu Fitzhugh Lee

Name: Jehu LEE

Sex: M

Birth: ABT. 1775 in Buckingham County, Virginia

Death: ABT. 1848 in Gainsboro, Jackson County, Tennessee

Notes:

Middle name was probably "Fitzhugh".

Much of the information about Jehu's descendants comes from Annette Dinwoodey.

From Jim Short : In the 1850 Census for Jackson County, in District 2, Family No. 827 lists Susannah Lee 60 yrs old, Agnes Short 77 yrs old, and John Lee 17 yrs old. Susannah is the eldest daughter of William Short, brother to my 3rd Great Grandfather. According to family tradition, Susannah is the common-law wife of Jehu Lee, after the death of his wife. (There is also a few people who think that she may have been common-law wife of Jehu's son, Barnett Lee. But I doubt that.) Susannah Short was never married to Jehu Lee (or anyone else), but she did use the Lee Family name and named her son John Lee. Jehu Lee is said to have named John Lee in his will, and left some money to him. By 1855 both Susannah and John had died. A Court Case in Gainsboro in July 1855 stated that John Lee was illegitimate, and therefore, his Grandmother Agnes Short could not inherit his land. (I find no further record of Agnes Short after this court case.)

Transcript of the Miller Lee letter as it appears in the book on Gresham Lee by R.E. Lee. The transcript was provided to R.E. Lee by a Barbara L. McKelvey, a Miller Lee descendant.

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."
