Early Records of Lee County, Virginia

This manuscript is a compilation of various early records of Lee County, Virginia. It is suggested that you use the index liberally for your searches which starts on page 152. Surnames will appear under a variety of spellings so be sure to check them all.

Deeds and wills are given here in abstract form, most of the recorded documents being quite lengthy.

Scott County, Virginia, was formed in 1814, from parts of Lee, Russell and Washington Counties. A copy of the petition for the forming of the new county was acquired through the courtesy of Mrs. Charlie Horton of Kingsport, Tennessee. I consider this to be a valuable addition to the book.

Miss Elizabeth Carpenter of Pennington Gap, Virginia, furnished names and dates for some of the unmarked graves among the Lee County inscriptions.

Inscriptions from the Ritchie Cemetery in Claiborne County, Tennessee, and from the Tyler Cemetery at Tyler’s Bend in Lee County, Virginia, were given by Mr. and Mrs. V. Irvin Ritchie of Firestone, Colorado. Also, from the Ritchies, information on unmarked graves in the Joseph Ball Cemetery in Lee County, near Mulberry Gap, Tennessee.
