I am researching the William Lee that was in Montgomery County TN in 1820 census. I am trying to determine if he is the same William Lee who married Mary Davenport in 1795 Washington Co VA and died in 1852 Texas. My 3rd gr grandfather was Miller Lee b 1799 VA, in 1820 Washington Co VA census with what appears to be a brother, William, and I have been searching for his father for 15 years! My Miller Lee family seems to be in many of the same locations as the descendants of Richard Lee and Elizabeth Miller, thru TN and into Missouri, not to mention that many of the childrens names are similar (Asbury for one) Some of the Richard Lee/Eliz Miller descendants are pretty well documented, but with a name like William Lee, it's tough to determine what records apply to what William.

The one I'm trying to learn more about is shown in

1787 Buckingham Co Va tax list age 16-21
Sep 30, 1795 married Mary Davenport in Washington Co VA, Methodist Minister Nicholas Reagan presiding
Died 1852 in Tyler, Smith County, Texas

Anyone familiar with this one?
