Notes for Andrew Lee:
Andrew died in January, 1796. He lived in the Edgefield District in South Carolina on the Saluda River (Lee's Ferry).
Andrew and Nancy (Wilson) were buried at their plantation on the Saluda River, but when the Army Corps of Engineers constructed Lake Murray, their bodies were removed to a churchyard not far away , and the graves marked with a granite marker.
Leesville, SC, is in Lexington County, not Edgefield. The town is named for the family, and the Lee Cemetery there is well maintained.

Andrew Lee appears on a 1779 list of residents of the old "Ninety-Six" District of South Carolina. This list was found on the Internet and was submitted by Paul R. Sarrett, Jr. (prsjr@aol.com). (2/24/1999)

Excerpt from: http://www.nps.gov/nisi/
The siege of Ninety Six (May 22-June 18,1781):
The Ninety Six National Historic Site is an area of unique historical significance. The unusual name was given by early traders in the 1700's because they mistakenly believed it was the estimated number of miles to the Cherokee village of Keowee in the upper South Carolina foothills.
By the mid-1700's, European colonists found it a favorable place to settle. During Ninety Six's early days, troubles with local Indians increased. In 1760, Cherokees twice attacked Fort Ninety Six, built for the settlers' protection. By the early 1700's, Ninety Six village reached its peak with a growing population, 12 houses and a newly constructed courthouse and jail.
Ninety Six also figured prominently in the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution. The first land battle south of New England was fought here in 1775 and in 1780, the British fortified the strategically important frontier town. From May 22 - June 18, 1781; Major General Nathanael Greene
with 1,000 patriot troops staged the longest (yet unsuccessful) siege of the Revolutionary War against 550 loyalists who were defending Ninety Six. The park site covers 989.14 acres.

Notes for Nancy Ann Wilson:
A story about Nancy Ann Wilson (from research by Jeanne DeLange):

On one occasion, during the Rev. War when Col. Lee was absent from his home with the SC Militia, a Tory neighbor went to
his house to plunder. Upon trying to enter the house, he found Mrs. Lee ready for him. Seated in the room with an infant on her
lap, she heard the noise at the door and, springing forward with a hatchet in her hand, she defended herself by inflicting wounds
upon the intruder -- then, with the aid of a servant, she dressed his wounds and, in company with her servant, she watched over
him throughout the night. When morning came, one of her faithful slaves put him on a land sled and, together, they transported
him to Ninety-Six where she delivered him to the proper authorities.
