John Lee was born in 1794 in South Carolina and died in September 1884. He and his family moved to Georgia.

In 1830, John and his family moved to Columbia County FL. He was married to Avarilla (Ava) about that time. Together they had ten children.

He and his first wife Elizabeth Jones, had five (maybe 6) children. He and some of his family voted in the first election, in Florida. The Lee family lived in several counties in Florida: Hamilton, Lafayette, Columbia, Taylor and Jefferson.

They are mentioned in the Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia, by Huxford.
