Welcome to the JLX Researcher's Group !
||John LEE, Esq. (JLX)
of Johnston Co., NC
Some Important Notes
- Over 140 "Researching Cousins" working together
- Over 10,000 Descendant names on file (& growing almost daily)
- Both "Team" & "Individual" research on specific goals
Despite what you may have heard elsewhere, the parents of John LEE, Esq.
(Referred to by many of us as "JLX") have NOT been discovered yet, although
we have a team of researchers working on that very project. Previous
work showing him to be the son of Hancock LEE & Sarah ALLERTON was
proven to be false. Hancock's son John was never married, and died
without issue (per the Society of the Lees of Virginia -- the official
record keepers of that family).
Many years ago, Will Franke drew a chart showing JLX's son Capt. Thos. LEE to be the son of Richard LEE of Ditchly. Despite the fact that even Will Franke later agreed that this was an error, many people refuse to accept the error as such, and hang onto it as truth because it ties them to the famous Virginia LEEs. Believe me, there is ample proof to show that Capt. Thos. LEE was a son of JLX.
The oft sought link to the famous Virginia LEEs above (as in Light Horse
Harry and his son Gen. Robt. E. LEE) has NOT been found
yet. There are a few people working on this project.
There is an error in the "JLX" book by Johnston, Lang, Lee, & Long.
On pg.20, Ann LEE DID NOT marry "Fred BURN". Ann was the wife of
Tobias BUNN. Fred BURN (really Fred'k BUNN) was the husband of Zilphia
ALTMAN, the sister of Morning ALTMAN.
Where did the "Esquire" come from? Kay Wrageg has the answer.
