From on Monday, 20 February 2012 and on 12 Nov 2013
Hi just saying hullo, Iím a descendant of Charles Lee who married Mary Cecilia Webb
Added 12 Nov 2013 -
Charles J Lee was born in Comstock Kalamazoo Michigan in 1848 although there is some slight disagreement as to whether it was 1846 or 1848 depending where you look, I have a copy of their marriage certificate which agrees with the 1848 version they were married at George Webb's house at no 2 Short St Sandhurst in 1879 and the shell of the house is still there although it has been gutted out and turned into part of a hairdressing School along with the corner house.
Thankyou for writing. I wrote the first notes on 4 July 2002, and today have found the Rootsweb pages and links, giving more details on your ancestor Charles Lee, as well as other items I have added to this page.
