Below is what I have on Lee and family.Most of my information came from Wilma Boden, Edward Burkhiser's step-daughter and daughter of Fideline "Delia" (Morrison).She was in her late 80's (b. 1914) when I was corresponding with her.She had a great memory but I did find a few inaccuracies. I have some Burkhiser pictures if you are interested, among them Lee, Edward and Adam, his father.
Another connection: My maternal aunt, Gail Miller, married the son of Ruby's cousin Otis (s/o Charles Bales and Beola Burkhiser).
Please let me know if you find and incorrect information or can fill in any of my blanks. Please email me.
