Lawrence L. Lee Family/Centerville/1870s
Posted by: DOROTHY ONEILL (ID *****3141) Date: March 02, 2003 at 14:23:28

Am seeking information on the family of Lawrence Ludlow Lee, born 1820 in GA, and died 1879 in Centerville, LA.
He was married to Bridget Elizabeth Denigan Voorhies (Voorhees), born 1835 Isle of Man, died 1873 in Centerville, LA.
Their children were:
Margaret Antonio Lee       1857 - 1941
Ledora Leona Lee       1857 - 1863
Maryana Georgeana Lee       1860 - 1922
Lawrence Edwin Lee       1861 - 1916
Elizabeth Isadora Lee       1865 - 1875
Lawrence L. Lee was listed in the 1870 Census of St. Mary Parish, and was living in the 4th Ward. After the death of Lawrence and his wife, one of the daughters was living with the family of J. S. Winter in Centerville in the 1880 Census of the parish.
I am sure Lawrence and Bridget, and some of their children are buried in a cemetery in or near Centerville. I do not think he was Catholic, but probably Presbyterian.
Does anyone have access to a cemetery book for the parish, or any information on this family?
I would greatly appreciate any help or leads.
