been found of another marriage or wife or child.  After his death his

great aunt, Nancy (Braswell) Gilbert and her husband Isham Gilbert.  They
are listed in the 1880 census living with the Gilberts.  Robert Lee and
his wife Effie A. had three daughters:  Velvie, Annie A. and Lillie E.
After the death of Robert and Effie the girls were placed in other homes.
Velvie Lee went to live with John C. Gilbert and his wife Sarah (Burton)

Burgess and his wife Sallie V. (Buice) Burgess who adopted an raised
these two girls.  Stephen Lee and his wife Elizabeth Braswell were first
cousins.  Stephen's father and Elizabeth's mother were brother and
sister.  Stephen Lee and Elizabeth Braswell's parents are both buried are
