Van Gundy Family Tree

Notes for Elizabeth LEE

In the 1850 census of Macoupin & Apple Creek Twp, Greene Co, IL, Elizabeth was head of the house at age 52. She was a farmer with property worth $250. Living with her were children: Charles, 25; Rebecca, 21; Stephen N, 18; Henry S, 16; and Mary E, 6. Next door was probably Elizabeth's brother, Archibald Lee.

By 1860 the family lived in Fayette, Greene Co, IL. Elizabeth was 70 and only Henry, 26, and Mary, 16, were still at home. Elizabeth's property was then valued at $400/75. Next door was daughter Eveline Grizzle with son George farther down while son Charles was 2 doors down the other direction.

Cemetery records verify she was the wife of John.
