Hi Tom!
Thank you for your reply! No I don't have any of the obits on any of my Lee's. I would love anything at all that you may have!
I had an appointment in Syracuse today and made the time to go to the County Court House to see if they even existed! :) I did find Thomas Lee's in the Syr. City Directories. I found a Thomas Lee living at 35 William St. and a William Lee living at 192 Grape. In 1870 I found that Thomas Lee still lived at 35 William St. In 1875 I find Thomas,Sr. and Thomas,Jr. are living at 19 Elm St. and that William H. is living at 84 Harrison St. No such luck I could find two of my Lee's at the same address.
Thomas Lee would be my Great grandfather the father of John B. Lee born June 29, 1875 in Syracuse. Died in Oswego April 20, 1924. Thomas Lee married Catherine Burke. All I know about her is she was born in the USA. Not much to go on.
If nothing else I found that they did live in Syracuse for sure today. I have to find the time to go back to the court house to see if there is anything else I can find on them. I really didn't have that much time there today.
As I said before I would welcome anything at all on the Lee's. I think this family is really hiding on me.
Thank you again for your reply. Are you related to the Lee's by any chance?
