Wife of William Lee. She may have had other husbands. Mother of Ambrose Lee and several other children. It is not known for certain where she is buried. This memorial page will be updated if/when a headstone and cemetery are confirmed for her.

Possibly buried at or near Grub Hill Church Cemetery, also was known by several other names; the Find A Grave Cemetery listing notes indicate the following info: "Also known as: Amelia Episcopal Church Cemetery, Amelia Presbyterian Church Cemetery"....."Amelia Court House Cemetery; Amelia County, Virginia USA".

"Established in 1754. HISTORY St. John's Episcopal Church, known as Grub Hill Church, was constructed around 1760 amid great plantations. The old frame building, located just south of Flat Creek, was frequented by an aristocratic congregation ...... Old descriptions of the building state that it was in the shape of a cross, containing high-backed pews and small galleries "built up under the roof." When this old building was dismantled in 1850, the present brick structure was erected. With the re-routing of "Archer's Church Road." the churchyard is now entered from the rear. Many of the most prominent figures in the history of Amelia County are at rest within the walls of the old cemetery. The property is now a Virginia Historic Landmark and is listed in the National Register of Historic places." (Info From: Amelia Family Album.)
