Looking for information about the family of LEE, Sally (Sallie), born abt. 1796 in North Carolina. My paternal great-great-grandfather George LEE was born about May 1838 (1900 Census) in Wake County North Carolina to Sallie LEE, he died between Dec. 1911 and before 1914 in Moore County. His first wife was Patsy EVANS was born to Feilding Evans and Parthenia (surname unknown) in 1852. George and Patsy children are Theodosia, Devisit, Delonga (Lonnie), Feilding J.(Jasper- my Great Grandfather), George, Earnest, Henry, Sarah, and Theoressa. George Lee is listed in the 1850 in Wake County Census listed as a Mulatto with a sister named Elizabeth and they were living with a Meril, Elizabeth, and Claranda (?) Olive. Then in 1860 they were living with Sallie LEE but they were not listed as Mulatto but as Caucasians. My family oral history was was our ancestors were free people of color or Free Issues. Sallie LEE in every census I found is listed as Caucasian, how common was inter-racial liasons in the late 1830's, because George LEE list his father as unknown on his second marriage to Lina GOINS? I wish to correspond with others researching the LEE line. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also researching the MINTER, HAIRSTON, JAMERSON of VA, as well as the HARRINGTON, McIVER, and EVANS of NC.
