Lee and Kiker family IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on April 12, 2004 at 01:42:31 AM by Sally Kiker Zwadyk
My grandmother Mattie Elvira Lee(b 1883), her father, John Lee(b 1846) and his father Vandella Lee(b 1800)were all born and lived in Spartanburg Co -- some relatives say the homeplace was where Camp Croft was and a family cemetery may be there. My grandfather, Robert Lindsey Kiker Sr worked as a stone cutter in a business I believe on Union Street. He and Mattie lived on Elford Terrace. Robert Sr died in 1934 and Mattie in 1953. Mattie had a brother William Henry Lee (living on Route 2) who was still alive at her death. They had 3 children - Frederick, Mary Louise, and Robert L. Kiker Jr (my Dad). I have the census records listing the 1850 records of the Vandela Lee Household and the John Lee household census of 1870, 1880 and 1900.
I would like any information but for example -- need marriage date of Mattie Elvira Lee and Robert L. Kiker -think they were married sometime in early 1903 or 1902. Are there any descendents of Vandella Lee or John Lee (John C. Lee) still in Spartanburg? Any listing of the family in history books of Spartanburg Co? Need birth date of Frederick Kiker. etc. I think that John Lee died on Feb 20, 1908 and Wiliam Henry Lee died on April 10, 1957 -- where would obits from the Spartanburg Journal be found? I would appreciate any information or assistance. Sally Kiker Zwadyk email@example.com Replies: There have been no replies.
