In 1971, Lincoln Lee wrote, "my grandmother came from Virginia, I believe it was Grayson County. She was about six or eight years old. Her maiden name was Nancy Phillips. My mother, Rebecca Bobbitt Lee, said her and my grandfather Bobbitt were first cousins. Grandfather Bobbitt died when mother was born in 1856. His name was William Bobbitt. My Aunt Eliza raised mother. They had seven children, Eliza, Elizabeth, Rebecca, John, George, and Henry Green. One who died when very young. John and George were in the army."
