201 After the death of her mother in 1835, Samuel Watts was assigned Malinda’s guardian in Nov 1836. Melinda Lee’s Aunt, Martha Patsy Lee, was married to a William Watts, and they had a son named Samuel. So it’s likely Melinda was raised by her older 1st cousin.

Melinda was living with her niece, California Spurgeon Campbell, in 1900 in Oakland California.

Melinda’s death certificate lists her birthplace as Virginia, but her parents were already in Missouri by 1825. It also lists her mother’s maiden name as “Casey” - close enough to Cassidy. The informant was her daughter, Alice.

Marriage is probable based on later records (censuses).

202 After the death of his father, John Albert was taken into the home of Rev. Moses Gillam. And he was a real son to them in their declining days. from the Gillam Family of Indiana, page 21. Gillam, John Albert (I4553)
203 After the death of his mother in 1835, Reuben Watts was assigned to be William’s guardian. William G. Lee’s Aunt, Martha Patsy Lee, was married to a William Watts, and they had a son named William who might be the Reuben Watts that appears in the 1850 census (both were born in 1796, VA). So it’s likely William G Lee was raised by his older 1st cousin.

William G. Lee and his older sister, Lucinda Spurgeon, with their spouses and children appear in the 1852 California state census next door to one another in El Dorado County.

The family is living in Napa Valley, California in 1850 and in Tulare Co. in 1860 and Farmersville, Tulare Co. in 1866 and 1870, right next door to Washington and Amanda Lee. In 1888 and 1890 he was in Yokohl, Tulare Co., CA.

[William Lee] was an overland pioneer in California in 1849, making the journey with ox-teams. He was born in Virginia and reared in Missouri, and had been a brave soldier in the Mexican war. For some years after he came to California he teamed in San Francisco, Fresno, Stockton and Sacramento. Then he came to Tulare County and got into the cattle business, in which he was active and successful around Visalia for many years. His death, April 24, 1892, was sincerely mourned by family, by friends, by all who had come within the influence of his personality. His recollections of the west went back to the real pioneer days, the days of the miners, the outlaws and the vigilantes, of Indians and of the stern white men who risked their lives to defend their women and children against savage raids. He had done his part in Indian fighting and had known many of those bold spirits who had made a profession of fighting the redskins. Of his children, the following named were living in 1912: Joseph, Charles, Mrs. Mary Dumont and Mrs. Arthur G. Daly.


Excerpted from: History of the state of California and biographical record of the San Joaquin
Valley, California. An historical story of the state's marvelous growth from
its earliest settlement to the present time., Prof. Jame Miller Guinn, A.M., 1905.

Mr. [William Harley] Lee was born October 30, 1849, m Howard county, Mo., which was also the birthplace
of his father, William Lee. His grandfather was a native of Virginia, and removed from
the southern state to Missouri at a very early date. He died when his son was but a small
child. After his father's death William Lee was adopted by a Mr. Waite, who raised him as he
would an own child. In those days the youth had few of the educational advantages now offered,
merely attending the district schools when the work of the farm would allow. Thus his boy-
hood was passed, and on reaching man's estate he engaged in farming and tobacco raising, also
manufacturing cigars. He was a soldier in the Mexican war, performing the duties of a teamster.

In 1850, hearing much of the splendid opportunities of California and the glorious climate,
he determined to seek his fortunes in the far west. Now we would think a journey across
the plains with ox teams would be almost impossible, but in those days it was the only means
of getting overland to the coast, and with ambitious hopes for the future, Mr. Lee bade good-
by to home and friends, and with all his earthly possessions started for the Golden West. On
arrival here he first engaged in mining on the Feather and Yuba rivers, meeting with fair suc-
cess. He next located in San Jose, Santa Clara county, near which place he engaged in farm-
ing. At one time he was the owner of one hundred and sixty acres where the city of San Jose
now stands. After a short residence in the Santa Clara valley he removed to Napa county,
where he remained until 1853, at which time he took up his residence in Tulare county, set-
tling in the spring of 1854 near what is now the town of Venus. Here he took up land on the
Outside creek, which he improved. He dug the first ditch to be used for irrigation purposes,
and it was called the Lee ditch.

In 1869 Mr. Lee made another change of location, this time removing to the Yokohl val-
ley. He purchased railroad land and later preempted and homesteaded a tract, owning alto-
gether six hundred and forty acres, mostly in the valley. After taking up his residence in
the Yokohl valley he became one of the leading farmers and stockmen of the county, con-
tinuing to live there until his death in 1892, at the age of sixty-seven years.

While still a young man Mr. Lee was united in marriage with Elizabeth Fugit, who was born
in Missouri and died in California in 1894. She was the mother of ten children, five of whom
are still living, as follows : William H., whose name introduces this review ; Charles H., a resi-
dent of the Yokohl valley: Joseph F., a farmer and stockman living on the Tule river; Louisiana,
now Mrs. Daly, who lives near Venus ; and May, now Mrs. Dumont, of Yokohl valley.

RESEARCH: There is a record of a Pvt. William Lee, aged 22, who enlisted in Capt. S. A. Boake’s Co. G in Springfield, Missouri on 8 May 1847 for the Mexican War. He was mustered into service in Independence, MO on 11 June 1847, and mustered out at Independence on 21 October 1848.

Alfred D. King, Pioneer Journalist

SAN JOSE, Cal., Aug. 5 -- Alfred D. King, a newspaper man well known along the coast, died at his home in this city this morning. He was born in Tennessee in 1824, and crossed the plains to California in 1849. After following mining for a number of years he returned to Arkansas, where he served two terms in the Legislature. He was also a Circuit Court Judge. Eleven years ago he returned to California and engaged in the newspaper business. At one time he was proprietor of the Daily Enterprise of Riverside, Cal. He also conducted papers at Paso Robles and Santa Ynez. For the last couple of years he has resided in this city. A widow and three children survive him.

221 Although the IGI record that has the marriage for Rebecca lists her parents as William and Mary Jane Bishir, there is no such couple in any of the censuses. By process of elimination, Rebecca must be Jonathan and Elizabeth's daughter. She appears in the 1870 census, single, working as a clerk in a dry goods store in Highland Co. All around her on the census page are Stroups - Franklin P. Stroup is 4 pages away from her entry.

Two Rebecca Ann Bishirs of Highland County, Ohio.

Which one married Franklin Pierce Stroup and which one married James H. Turner? They were first cousins born in Dodson Twp. five years apart.

Rebecca, the daughter of Major Christopher Bishir and his 2nd wife Rebecca Abernathy was b abt. 1848, Dodson Twp, Highland Co. OH and died 7 Dec 1887 in Clermont Co. OH. She is buried in Greenberry (Formerly Hutchinson) Cemetery, Jackson Twp, Clermont Co. OH.
She married James H. Turner (b. 1859 OH) 10 Mar 1882 in Highland Co. OH
She is shown with her parents in the following census:

1850 Highland Co. Dodson, OH called Rebecca A. Age 5
1860 Highland Co. Dodson, OH called Ann age 15
1870 Highland Co. OH, called Rebecca A. age 22, single
1880 Clermont Co. OH, called Rebecca Beshire, age 32 single

Rebecca’s first cousin also named Rebecca Ann Bishir was b. 2 Aug 1853 Highland Co. OH, d. 12 Nov 1891 Buried Stroup Cemetery, Dodson Twp, Highland Co., OH
She is the dau of Jonathan Bishir and his wife Elizabeth Spickard—Jonathan is the younger brother of Major Christopher Bishir. .
She married Franklin Pierce Stroup b. 4 Jan 1853, Highland Co. OH, married on 3 May 1879 Highland Co. OH

There is much confusion between the two Rebecca Ann Bishirs…..but the best proof that Rebecca Ann, daughter of Jonathan Bishir was the one that married FP Stroup, is the fact that Major Christopher’s Rebecca was still single, living with her parents in Clermont Co. in the 1880 census, while F.P. Stroup married Rebecca A. Bishir in Highland Co., in 1879 and they are listed as husband and wife in the 1880 census in Dodson, Highland Co., as Frank P. and Ann Stroup.

There is an additional record on the Stroup family website listing the wife of F.P. Stroup as Rebecca Bishir daughter of William and Mary Jane Bishir. We have no record for that couple. Although there are numerous William Bishirs, none is married to a Mary Jane with a daughter Rebecca that we can document so far…..

The Highland Weekly News, May 15, 1879, Image 3:

Frank Stroup and Miss Rebecca Bishir were married at the M.E. parsonage on the 3d inst., Rev. J. H. Middleton officiating.

Two more have gone to try the “sad realities” of married life. Mr. Frank Stroup and Miss Annie Bishir concluded to henceforth “trot in double harness” and on the 3d had the necessary ceremony performed. After their marriage they drove to Uncle Charles Stroup’s, where “Aunt Lizzie” had in waiting an elegant and tempting supper. After supper the assembled guests repaired to the parlor and spent the evening pleasantly, in singing, and in social chat. The bride received from friends.

During the evening they were favored with a musical (?) serenade. One of the serenaders left his musical instrument which he can have calling, etc. 
Bishir, Rebecca Ann (I1501)
222 Amanda was widowed and living with her brother George in 1880. She is married in 1900 but lists no children. She was found dead in the schoolhouse in which she was employed as janiteress (heart attack). Bishir, Amanda (I1643)
223 Amanda’s parentage is not yet proven but we have a conjecture that she is a daughter of Joel and Ora Lee and a 1st cousin to her husband.

Based upon a fairly thorough catalog of all Lees living in Howard, Cooper, Saline, and Petis counties in Missouri between 1830 and 1850 constructed from censuses, original records, and some information from other researchers, it appears that there are two main Lee families in these counties prior to 1850. The two groups are not related (Y-DNA of their descendents doesn’t match). One is a group of Lees who moved to Howard Co. around 1818/19 from Madison Co., Kentucky, the parents being Richard Lee and Elizabeth. This family was quite prolific - there are lots of them.

The other, smaller, group is that of the three brothers who came directly from Virginia in 1819/20: John Lee, Joel (Joseph) Lee, and William Lee. Their father was William Lee Sr. (1742-1820). We have a very close Y-DNA match for a male descendent of George Washington Lee with relatives of William Lee Sr. in Virginia. By process of elimination, we at first thought that we could argue strongly that Amanda must have come from the Lees of Madison County, Kentucky.

Since GW & Amanda’s first-born son John Harvey Lee carried the Harvey surname, we at first thought Amanda must have been a daughter of either Noah Green Lee or Richard Washington Lee, whose wives were Harveys. Richard’s will does not mention Amanda and there is no room in the birth order of his children for her. A biography of one of Noah’s sons indicates that he had nine children. Discounting those that died young, this would not allow for an extra child (Amanda). Also, the 1830 census does not include any extra females in Amanda’s age range.

One of the co-administrators appointed for George Washington Lee’s parents’ estate in 1836 was a John Harvey. He could have been married to one of GW’s sisters, or he could be a family friend. It is possible GW’s eldest son was named after him rather than Amanda’s mother.

We have found several atDNA matches that descend from both the Cassady’s (who are connected with both John’s wife Sally Owen and William Lee Jr.’s wife Polly Cassady) and the Newmans (connected with Joel’s wife Ora Newman) indicating that either or both of Washington or Amanda Lee descend from these families. There is no room in John’s birth order or in the 1830 census for John’s widow’s household for either Wash or Amanda. There is one unaccounted for male slot in the 1830 census for William Lee Jr. and more than one male and female slot with Joel Lee. For these reasons, we think it likely that Wash was a son of William and Polly (Cassady) Lee (95% certain) and Amanda was a daughter of Joel and Ora (Newman) Lee (75% certain - 25% she is from some as-yet-unknown Lee family not in this area of Missouri). We are now searching for a matrilineal descendant of Ora Newman’s ancestors to test for full-sequence mtDNA to compare with a test we did on a matrilineal descendant of Amanda Lee to rule that possibility in or out.

RESEARCH: Amanda’s daughter, Ada Lee Myers, told her children that her mother died when she was six years old (1870).

Andrew Bishir, retired farmer of Dodson township, is not only a descendant of old settlers but
may be regarded as one himself, his birth having occurred at an early period in the history of
Highland county. When his grandfather, Christopher Bishir, after tariying a while in 1810 at the
mouth of Crawfish river, came to Union township there were comparatively few people there to
greet him. In fact, the township had only been organized a year or two when this Pennsylvania
pioneer arrived with his wife and children. Even in 1833, when he built his log cabin in Dodson
township about one mile south of Lynchburg, the country was still wild and sparsely settled.
Aside from the dangers of Indian hostility, which had happily passed, the main features and
characteristics of a wilderness were all still present . Neighbors were few and far between, few
of the comforts of civilization were to be had and the wolves, still plentiful in the woods, made
night hideous with their dismal howlings. Deer, turkey, panthers, bear and other wild game
were yet abundant and the main reliance of the settlers for fresh meat. The pioneer alluded to
had a son named after himself, Christopher Bishir, who was born in Pennsylvania in 1805, and
after he grew to maturity in Ohio was married to Susan Hart, a native of North Carolina. This
couple passed away, the mother in 1839 and the father December 24, 1883, after rearing seven
children, of whom two sons and two daughters are living. One of the former is Andrew Bishir,
the honored subject of this sketch, who was born in Union township, Highland county, Ohio,
January 10, 1828. A few years after his birth he was taken by his parents to their new home in
Dodson township, where he grew to manhood, and October 23, 1850, was married to Piety
Ann Turner. This lady was a daughter of Calvin and Matilda (Wilson) Turner, Virginians who
came to Ohio in 1830, and she was born March 5, 1832, during their residence in Preble
county. Her parents went to Indiana in 1840, but after remaining there four years returned to
Ohio, where they both died, the father in 1872 at Martinsville, when sixty-two years old, and the
mother in 1893 at Farmers Station, in the eighty-fifth year of her age. The grandparents of Mrs.
Bishir, Meador and Catherine Turner, the former born in Virginia in 1783 and the latter in 1789,
also migrated to Ohio in 1830 and both died in Clinton county, he in 1853 and she in 1872.
Andrew Bishir, though reared on a farm, learned the cooper's trade and did considerable work
in that line, which was also the calling of his father. He obtained the position of foreman in the
distillery warehouse at Lynchburg and retained the same for eighteen years. May 2, 1864, Mr.
Bishir enlisted in one of the Ohio regiments organized for the hundred days' service and was
out with that command four months. February 10, 1865, he enlisted in Company G, One
Hundred and Ninetysecond regiment Ohio volunteer infantry, under Capt. Joseph Gayman, and
went with this organization to the lower Shenandoah valley in March. Their service was
confined to doing guard and garrison duty at Halltown and other places in that portion of
Virginia until September 6, 1865, when they were paid and discharged at Columbus, Ohio, Mr.
Bishir at the time holding the rank of sergeant. Mr. and Mrs. Bishir have had seven children, of
whom Isadora and Lizzie are dead, the living being Alonzo D., James W., Emma C., Mollie and
Arthur A. They celebrated their golden wedding October 23, 1900, and the occasion was a
memorable one for the large family connection, as well as the many friends of this venerable
and highly esteemed couple. All the children were present except James, accompanied by
their wives and offspring, the only notable absence being the wife of Arthur A., who was kept
away by sickness. Besides these, Samuel Turner, of Sabina, a brother of Mrs. Bishir, was
present, also her two sisters, Mary Dimmitt, of Marion, and Jennie Moon of Clinton county, and
Mr. Bishir's two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Fenner of Marshaltown, Iowa, and Sarah Walker of
Vienna, Ohio. Originally a Democrat, Mr. Bishir was converted to Republicanism by the
agitation of the questions growing out of the civil war. He and wife are members of the Christian
church and are passing the evening of their days in the quiet and retired life which fittingly ends
so many years of activity.
