This would make Richard's birth date closer to DA . Using calculated date by subtracting 80 years from burial.

    Notes:

    Christened:
    Note: Date could also be Nov 13, 1761 - these are both in IGI under same files, with same parents names.

    Or first John could have died.

    Note:
    Parents could be John Lee and Elizabeth Rickard, married 1753 in Parkham. This John's parents could be John Lee and Catherine? married April 22 1728 in Parkham.

    They had 8 known children from ca 1789 to 1805 - Mary, Thomas, James, William, John, William, Grace, George.

    The name William probably factored into one of their fathers as the first child William died, they named another son William as well. Three of their sons died young, James (age 5), William (age 3), and second William (age 5).

    If dates are correct it looks the first William died on the same day that the second William was born.

    If this family proves to be the family of our Mary Lee, input the rest of this information.
