    I listed parents of Elizabeth Lee younger b. 1755 as Henry Lee Jr. & Lucy Ludwell Grymes who married in1753. The current concensus of pedigrees is that the parents are Richard Henry Lee and Ann Aylett who married 1757, which is after her birth. According to the following information, she might not be a child of either of these families. One other rootsweb database used this source: Some Prominent Virginia Families, by Louise Pecquet du Bellet; Lynchburg, Virginia - J.P. Bell Co., 1907. ~Vern Taylor

    From: "Russ Fisher"
    Subject: Elizabeth Lee

    Dear Mr Taylor

    I have been doing research on Elizabeth Lee Younger. I had thought she
    was related to Henry Lee as you have indicated. However, according to
    the Society of Lees of Virginia, she is not related to the infamous
    Lees of Virginia (see attached email).

    The majority of my research depended on primarily and
    RootsWeb. What sources do you have that show Elizabeth Lee related to
    Henry Lee?

    Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    Sincerely, Russell Fisher

    Russell Fisher
    Thank you for visiting our web site and your posting. Our principal
    source of genealogical information on the descendants of Richard Lee and
    Ann Constable is Lee of Virginia by Edmond Jennings Lee. It was first
    published in 1895 but there have been several reprintings since then.
    That source plus other data in the Society's files indicate that RHL
    had no daughter named Elizabeth, nor does the name Younger appear in our
    file. Also RHL's first child was not born until 1758.

    This does not mean that there was not an Elizabeth Lee who married
    Joshua Younger only that the information we have does not show it. I also
    looked for an Elizabeth Lee born about 1755 with negative results.

    May I ask the name of the source that has this information?

    Sorry I can't be of more assistance. Good luck in your research.

    Message: I am researching my family and come across an Elizabeth Lee
    marrying a Joshua Younger. Is Elizabeth Lee any relation to the infamous
    Lee Family that your organization represents? She was born in 1755 and
    died in 1787. According to the source I found, she is the daughter of
    Richard Henry Lee and Ann Aylett.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
