LEE/LEA, Alfred –  My father, Fred Lee was born in 1901 at Henegar, AL, d. 1967 in Jefferson County, AL and I have been researching his line. I have documented back to Walter Lea, b. 1830 in Bledsoe, TN and died 1899 at DeKalb County, AL. We have been told that our line goes back to Hancock Lee however, I haven’t been able to prove that. I asked my brother to do the dna test by Relative Genetics and he did. Just got dna test results for my brother (who is a LEE) and find his is a close match to Alfred LEE/LEA, (b.c. 1799 NC or SC d. bef. 1870 probably in MO). The name Alfred LEE hasn’t come up in our research before. Does anyone have any information on him or his lineage? Would appreciate any help to find a link between Alfred Lee and our family.  Please contact Doris Parks at dmparks@charter.net  [posted November 12, 2005]

LINDSEY, Micajah –  Need to find where Micajah LINDSEY (1776 NC – 1845 MS) lived in Jefferson County.  In an act of the Legislature approved 20 Dec 1820, I found: “Sec. 2. And be it further enacted, That in addition to the election precincts heretofore established in Jefferson county, there shall be one at the house of Micajah LINDSEY, Esquire.”  In an act approved on 3 Dec 1821, I found: “Sec. 17. And be it further enacted, That the election precinct formerly held at Squire LINDSEY’s be discontinued, and in future held at Squire Saunders.”  On 8 Sept 1821: Frederick Duvall m Frances Wyatt. Consent of James Wyatt for daughter. Micajah LINDSEY, security, P. 209, #168 amd p.214, #168.  In 1823, he was “bound” by Judge John Brown of JEfferson Co., along with the adminstrators of the estate of Andrew McWilliams, in the amount of $5000.  I’ve found no source that lists JPs of that era, and with the 1820 Census incomplete, have not been able to place him. In the early 1820s a couple of his children were married in Fayette County, and relatives of his wife (Waldrops and McClurkins) lived in the Hueytown area, so he may have been in the western part of the county.  Please contact Margaret Smith at mlsmith67@earthlink.net   [posted April 10, 2005]
