Mary,I just got to answer you back as I had no computer for quite awhile. My Oliver Lee was supposed to have been from New York (born 1804) and traveled to California during the gold rush day and then back to Texas (died 1878/18790. His son, Oliver M. Lee, is my great grandfather and he ended up here in New Mexico . I know not much more than this except that Oliver was supposed to be married to a Scottish woman.
I just found a note in my family book. Was your Josiah born in 12/07/1772?
