Theresa Shurtleff The Lee Family has a little mystery about it. It is said that George and Lora (Cooper) Lee came to the United States in 1895 from Ireland. Some how they ended up in Arkansas (no records to prove this), because the records building burnt down. My grandfather Emmett Lee was born in Clarendon,Arkansas in the year 1896. His father was killed by horsethieves two weeks before his son was born.Burial( unknown) Lora died six moths after Emmett's Birth. Then he was raised to the age of eight years old by his grandmother.(no name) He was the raised by an old man (that is what Emmett called him) And went to Brinkley School until he went into the Army in 1918. No more is known about the Lee Family. Emmett and wife Emeline had four children.There are numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Emmett has long sense passed away also Emeline.
