My husband is related to this particular Lee family, and we have recently been doing a lot of work on the Utica Lees. Adrian had a sister named Mary. This Mary Cordelia Lee is my husband's great-great grandmother. Adrian and Mary had three other siblings: Erastus, Sarah, and John H. The parents of Adrian, Mary, and their siblings were Erastus Lee and Eliza Simpson. Erastus owned a hardware store in Utica in the 1870's and 1880's. Adrian owned a butcher shop in Utica. Adrian and his wife and sons have a large family plot with an enormous stone in the New Forest cemetery in Utica. Adrian's father, Erastus, is buried there, too, but his grave is unmarked.
Adrian's sister, Mary, who is my husband's great-great grandmother, married Uriah C. King, and she and he moved to Rensselaer, NY. Hope this helps. If you have any information on this family that you would like to share, we would greatly appreciate it. We are trying to trace this family further back, but all we know so far is that Erastus's father was probably named Walter Lee. We are also interested in information on lateral branches of this Lee family leading up to present day.
