Earl Lee’s great-great grandfather settled in Vigo County, Indiana, in 1817. He came from North Carolina via Kentucky and Ohio. His name was James Lee and he is buried in Prairie Creek Cemetery in Vigo County. The DAR has place a marker on his grave for service in the Revolutionary War.

Robert Earl moved south to Alabama in 1904 as a young boy with his parents. They were looking for a milder climate and cheap land. They found both in Alabama! Earl was a farmer and a carpenter. He is buried in the Clear Springs Cemetery in Baldwin County, Alabama.
