Searching for info on the family of John Wesley Lee b abt 1834 England. He was a bookkeeper in Jefferson. He married Emma Corrine Updegraff 9 Jan 1866 in Marion Co. Emmas father Joseph Updegraff is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery. Their children were Claude McDonald Lee b 8 Aug 1867 d 21 Jun 1869 in Jefferson, Maud Frances Lee b 15 Oct 1868 Jefferson, Corinne Mosier Lee b 19 Nov 1870 Jefferson, Ennis Braun Taylor Lee b 25 Oct 1873 Jefferson. John Wesley Lee died 1 Nov 1876 and is buried in Oakwood Cemetery. A story handed down tells that Emma abandoned her family, no-one knows where she went. The chilren went to live with their Aunt Virginia and her husband Steven Bond Price in Big Springs TX where Maud married Andrew Walker, Corinne (Cora) married Frank Vinson Hilburn and Ennis married Dora Hilburn. Steven Bond Price and his first wife Catherine Rebecca Rodgers were the grandparents of Frank and Dora Hilburn.
Thank you very much to Don McLatchie for providing more clues for my search.
