Dear Elaine,

 

I have included three Wright families in close proximity to Matthew Lee in 1870, in case they are Adelineís family, which it appears they are. I have also included the cemetery listings for the Matthew Lee Family.

 

I hope these are of some help to you.

Please provide the information contained in the census on the following:

 

        Matthew Lee    E190

 

I anticipate this to be my great grandfather whose spouse should be Adeline (Wright)

Any and all information would be appreciated
