LEE-JOHNSON BOOKS READY FOR PUBLICATION September 17, 2007
Rebecca Owens, of Dunn, and Ruth Creech, of Fayetteville, have recently finished their 2500+ page,
2 volume compilation entitled JOHNSON-LEE FAMILIES, SOUTH OF THE NEUSE. Under sponsorship of the Johnson-Lee
Reunion Committee, they have researched and compiled lineages on many of the descendants of Hugh Lee (ca.1650-1721,
Prince George, Virginia), John Lee, Esq. (ca. 1700-1768, Johnston County, North Carolina) and William Johnston
(ca. 1648-1719, Isle of Wight, Virginia). The inter-relationships of descendants of these men and many other
allied families are explored over the past 250+ years.
While many present-day descendants still reside in the Johnston-Harnett-Sampson-Cumberland County area, additional
information tracks other descendants as they migrated throughout the United States. Information from existing
records is documented and will provide a springboard for additional research by interested genealogists and family
A special bonus section includes over 500 family photographs (some from the 1800s) collected and identified during
the compilers' extensive research.
