In 1900 Dickson County, General L and Mollie (SPANN)Baty are found with their 7 children.In 1910, Lee Batey is found with his new wife, Tilda (BURNETT) in Rutherford County, TN
Marriage records - Lee Batey to Mary E. Spann 5 Jul 1881, Rutherford County, TN Witness- Mrs Jane Spann, Jeff D. Batey, Wm Reynolds Lee Batey to Tilda Burnett 1 Jul 1905, Rutherford County, TN
I believe that Jeff D. Batey is a brother to this Lee Batey. Lee is born Sep 1861 (1900 Dickson Co, TN census) and Jeff is born Sep 1962 (1900 Rutherford Co, TN census) ........ What I believe and what I can prove are two different things !!! I cannot find Lee or Jeff in any census of 1870 or 1880 ....
Does anyone have a clue besides the Hugh L. Batey of 1860 Williamson County, TN census and Maria L. Batey of 1870 Davidson County, TN census ??? Hugh and Maria have a son named Lee (Leonidas) who is 10 years older than the Lee I am trying to nail down - and, they don't have a son named Jeff.
