Lee Family and Harris Family

Hi! I think you can be a big help!! I have always been told that we were related to Robert E. Lee. My aunt just recently sent me everything she had on our family tree. There are 2 sets of relatives from early VA (Lee and Harris) and I am trying to put together the connection. The papers I have on the Lee Family state that we are related to Col. Richard Lee, who was secretary of the Colony of VA, 1659. and also , Member of The House of Burgesses for York County, 1647-1651. He had a son named William, born about 1651. My aunt says that we have the Lee line back to 1644, and mentions Henry Lee as our ancestor. Does any of this sound familiar to you?? I also have marriages and births from the Harris side, so I hope I can piece it together. Benjamin Harris was a Captain in the war and prominent in Albemarle County, VA. I would love to find out as much as possible and then go visit my roots in VA!
