Am researching the following Lee family and would appreciate any help.
Family notes state the Lees came from Wicklow.However, William Lee's obituary states he was born in Gorey, Wicklow. I don't know if the obituary has the incorrect town or county.
They left Ireland sometime between their youngest child's birth in 1853 and about 1859 when the mother was killed.By 1861 the husband and sons are living in Ops, Victoria, Ontario, Canada.The daughter, Mary Jane, was sent to live with an aunt whose name is unknown.
