Well, I think I have you beat...my grandfather and great-grandfather were BOTH Robert E. Lee.Robert Edmond Lee, but who's counting?
Re DNA testing:I suggest strongly that you contact one of two individuals who are the volunteer project coordinators for the Lee family studies at ancestry.com and FTDNA, the two primary DNA testing vendors here in the USA.David Lee at email@example.com handles the ancestry.com group (of which I am a member) and Gary Lee firstname.lastname@example.org has the same function for the FTDNA group.There are around 350 members to the ancestry.com group, and somewhere around 200 members to the FTDNA group, if that matters to you.Both vendors provide reputable services.
The coordinator will do several things: 1) take your known genealogy information and contact info, 2) give you a discount code for the testing so that you get a better price than someone not going through a project, 3) enter you into the project database, and 4) shepherd you through the test process.When your results come back in a couple weeks after submittal (the vendor will send you a test kit that you complete at home and send back), the coordinator will then help you interpret the results.The latter function isreally one of the primary reasons to join the project; the numbers you get back from the lab are meaningless without the context that the coordinators and the project database will provide.
Lastly, if you do match someone in the project, the coordinator will help you get in touch with that person or persons, so that you can work together to flesh out your common ancestries.
Hope this helps!

P.S. There are lots of "Lee Families of VA".There is only one "Lee of VA" family, which confusingly enough was also in MD and has since migrated all over the world.People make the mistake that if their Lees came from VA that they're a "Lee of VA".Not so: they could be Richmond Co Lees, JLN kin, James and Mary Lee of MD kin, Lee of Goochland kin, and so on...
