Hello! My name is Hunter Walls, My great grandmother was Ruth Lee, direct line to Burrell. My grandmother made a home video filming her relative Roman Lee 1916-2002 *Burrell's grandson, walking around the Lee family cemetery giving information on family and marriages within the lee family. Roman is asked if he knows who his great grandfather is who would be Burrell's father or grandfather and he says he does not know. Roman says Burrell was an Indian who hid in the Alabama woods during the colonization of Indians to the Oklahoma. Thinking about back then, Indians necessarily wouldn't be registered in a census due to not being "citizens", so it would be hard to go any further past that. I did find a hand written note from my grandmother that says his father and mothers name possibly were Jordan Lee and Lidia Hodge. Not to sure how accurate these are. Roman states in the video that Burrell lived 117 years old when he died. Interesting stuff. If you've uncovered any information I haven't, please feel free to share at xhunterjordan@gmail.com Thanks so much! -Hunter

I saw your query in Gen Today and have the following informatio: First off I am wondering if he could have been Burwell? My Lee DNA information has the following order: Charles Lee b. Va John Lee b. 1736 Cumberland Co Va Major Burwell Lee 1766-1825 Capt Burwell Lee ca 1800-1872 Robert A. Lee 1825-1918 Robert A. Lee 1872-1937 I also show Burrell Lee in the 1800 Fairfield Co SC census Burrell Lee Jr in the same census Also a John Lee Sr b. 1730 d. 22 Aug 1809 marr Elizabeth Hocutt 1735-1794Their children: Burrell, Hopkins, James and Cader b. 1771 d. 1855 I don't know if any of this is a help, but I hope so. I am researching Benjamin Lee b. 1797 b. Ga/Al No luck thus far. Too many Lee's with the same given names. marcy

If this is NOT the BURRELL LEE that you're looking for, then create a new query for BURRELL LEE
