Looking for information on the Gothard Lee/Lea line in Sale Creek and Soddy, TN. The family connection is James Edward Lea Jr. son of James Edward Lee and Thelma Smith. James Edward Sr. was to have changed the last name spelling to Lea around 1929. Family member stated that James Sr.'s father was John Lee m. (Sadie) Gothard, but I'm not sure if the information is correct. This has been very confusing to track so if someone could shed some light that would be great.
