Title

PHOEBE GOFF LEE

Description

Phoebe Goff Lee is pictured sitting on the porch of her cabin which was located near the James River west of Ponce. She was born in 1831 and died in 1916. Her husband was Thomas Lee(1829-1862). The Lees were close neighbors of the Calvin Cloud family. Phoebe's husband was a Union supporter and while he was home sick from the War Phoebe hid him in a brushy ravine, so as to avoid bushwhacker Alf Bolin's gang. Still, Mr Lee did of natural causes later that year---1862.
