About Mary Leigh

Additional Curator notes

PLEASE do not confuse this family with the Lees of Virginia. While they had the same ancestors two centuries before, they are not the same family. Please do not spell the surname in this family group in any other way than the curator has, to avoid mixing this family with many other similar families. Thank you. Maria Edmonds-Zediker, Curator, 7/11/2011
