Penny Velazquez - This picture was found in my late grandmother's collection and was not labeled. However, I believe I know who they are but it would sure be nice if someone were able to verify. The picture was really faded and I worked at it to get it a little darker. I believe the two boys are (left) Joseph M. Lee and his brother Adrian D. Lee, children of John James Lee of Cheatham Co. This picture was probably taken around 1883.

Penny Velazquez - This is a picture of John James Lee taken around 1920 in Orlando, FL. He is listed in the biographies of your county, which I just discovered this morning. He has been somewhat of a mystery to our family as we didn't know exactly where he came from, why only two of his children came to Florida with him and we don't know what happened to his wife and other two children. He moved to Orlando, FL around 1887
