I'm looking for information on the family of John Lee (b. 1785 NC, m. abt. 1809 Winchester, Franklin County, TN, d. 1866 Lawrence County, AL),
h/o Celia McCarver (Daughter of Archibald and Margaret Unknown McCarver, b. 1789-1790 North Carolina, d. bet. 1870-1880 Lawrence County, AL).
Their children were:

Our line goes down through William Hanes Lee and Martha Jane Wallace (daughter of Joseph H. Wallace and Rhoda Riggs).Their children are:
Mary "Polly" Lee (b. 1837= This date does not coincide with Martha Jane's 1827 birth, and it is my belief that Mary is the product of William and his first wife (although there is no evidence of a prior marriage, Mary possibly married a John McClung),
Joseph Alexander Lee (b. Dec. 11, 1844 Franklin County, AL, served in 4th AL cavalry, co D, m. -1-Clerissa T.
