      Yes, my gggrandfather was George J Lee married to
      Nancy J Higginbotham. Thank you for the information.
      Phobe Lee had Deborah Emaline, Mary Angeline, Malinda,
      Samuel,and George J Lee.
      I found a Malinda married to Levi Mashborne, which I
      believe is Phobe's daughter. Some of the information
      seems to fit anyway. Also found Mary Davis in The
      1880 census with Pheba living with her.
