My best & Happy Holidays to my families, esp. the Lee family & Old family. It's been a honor to discover the genealogy of the love these families produced & are continuing to this very day.
Our US Constitution dictates that we count our population every 10 yrs so that we can determined (among other things) the number of seats for each State in the House of Representatives in Washington DC. Gerrymandering, legal questions about the "citizenship question", cyber-security for taking the census online & the costs, est. to be higher than the 2010 US Census of $12.3 Billion. These are my noted problems for this April, 2020 Census:
-- any mistakes & it's a 10 yr mistake
-- cybersecurity systems & our ability to take the census online safely
-- legal problems (now in the court) of the "citizen question"
-- shortage of census workers
-- field testings were cut short
-- bankrupt printer of the 2020 Census
-- Finally if the schedule stays true, the 1950 US Census should be released on April, 2022 (every 72yrs release of US Census reports.)
On the "Monica Lee MacPherson" page I posted a revised genealogy on James Gordon Lee & Walter Barker Lee. Look for some photos on this page soon.
I posted on the "Latest Document" page, genealogy on William L Wiley & his wife, Isabella. Look for more info ...
William & Isabella Wiley lived on a farm in Ripley, NY where the paper, "Our Lee Family" was put together. The grave sites of the entire family is known & their home was located on 54 East Main Rd, Ripley, NY. (Google maps)
I separated these two families on different pages. Perhaps the Wiley's family should have a page alone. I'll decide later ... lol
Now is the time to post genealogy information on James Gordon Lee 1837-1916 & his wife, Annie (Anthony) Lee.
James Gordon Lee is the 2nd son of James Lee & Charlotte Barker Lee.
James Lee (Charlotte Barker Lee) 1811-1887
James Gordon Lee (Annie Anthony) 1837-1916
Walter Barker Lee (Eva Carlson) 1884-1972
Eric Walter Lee (Maria Luisa (Angelina) Lee 1922-1995
These are the direct family members of Monica Lee MacPherson, so I posted this genealogy information on "Monica Lee MacPherson" page. Hopefully other family members can add/correct to this genealogy.
The search continues on Annie Anthony, wife of James Gordon Lee. We have a photo of her & J.G.Lee but also in the photo are another couple most likely related to Annie. It is this unknown couple we need to identify! Any ideas??
It does point out how important it is to label family photos so as to identify everyone for generations to come.
Find the photo of Annie Andrews & James Gordon Lee & this unknown couple on the Monica Lee MacPherson page.
The "Monica Lee MacPherson" page has been expanded way beyond anything I could of imagine. The documents & photos she has provided for this site has expanded our knowledge of the Lee family history. We are grateful for her continued interest in genealogy of this family. Be sure to read this page!
This genealogy site has existed since 2011. My intentions are to keep it going. I have renewed my subscription to the host site, weebly.com for 2 years. I recommend weebly.com to everyone! Be sure to mention this site for discounts.
I listed our Old Family Reunion photos in 2 locations, the bottom of the "Home" page & again in the "Announcements & Events" page.

Any comments are welcomed! It would be exciting to here from relatives/descendants of James Old & James Lee, esp. photos that could be shared with this genealogy site.
"Let us continue ..."
Best wishes to our family on this Christmas of 2017.
I'll take a rest from this site until next year.
In the interim I urge everyone to download these William Wright Jr letters, found on the "Latest Document" page. There are 10 letters posted with much more to post. This site (weebly host) will be renewed again for 2 years & I've have yet to know anyone who has been seeing this site. Monica Lee MacPherson is the only person of interest on the site. (I have a cousin in Augusta, Ga too)
So I just don't know how long I can maintain theoldfamily.info site.
Download this site for your own records.
It seems strange that we know so little about the life of William Wright Jr. From Lily Lee Nixon's papers found in the Heinz Museum & Library, in Pittsburgh, we have these many letters written by him & it's only from Lily Lee Nixon's story, "Three Brothers And A Sister" that we find any information at all. Obviously he needs lots of research & I plan to do it. We know he was married & had many children, he invested in railroad stock & coal lands. We know too that his mother & father were Elizabeth Lee & William Wright and he was their son. Research can guess at the dates, maybe we can get some more information about him.
His (William Wright Jr.) letters can be found on the "Latest Document" page.
I have continued with posting of the "Lee Family Letters", these are found on the "Latest Documents" page. I hope to finish posting all these letters.
My plans with this site (theoldfamily.info) are to continue with it for yet another 2 years. The renewal date is January, 2018.
It's my hope this site continues being useful to those of us interested in the Old/Lee families & their descendants.
