Yes, my LEE family was in the Covington and Smith County area and Nathaniel LEE was the bondsman for Lydia LEE and George Washington LEE when they married in Hinds County Mississippi in the 1830's. My GGrandmother was Mary Ann Melissa (LEE) FREEMAN. She was the daughter of Seborn (Marion?)LEE b.1823 possibly Henry County Alabama(Civil War record states birth county) and Mary Ann DRYMAN. Seborn's middle name is guessed due to his brother Nathaniel having a son by the same name and church records showing the elder Seborn b.1823 has having the middle initial of M. I believe Seborn to be the youngest brother of your Lydia (LEE) GOLDMAN (GOLEMAN), Nathaniel LEE and George Washington LEE mother was Elizabeth UNK. LEE. I believe her to be the Elizabeth LEA in the 1830 census of Hinds County. Note the last name spelling. So we are definitely connected :)! Church records show GG Granddad Seborn LEE and Mary Ann to have posssibly separated but do not know if they reconciled or where they went after 1870. Do you know if your Lydia LEE/GOLDMAN was possibly part Choctaw Indian? Becky FREEMAN HICKMAN
