I'm looking for information on the Lee family in Chickasaw county, or in the vicinity
of Jerico, Iowa. My grandfather was Roger Lee (b. 1883), and he had older brothers named
Gisle (1880) and Helmer (1882). He also had an older sister named Laura, who we think
from doing searches in this area, might be the Laura Pauline Lee (1873) who married Andrew
Throndson in 1899 and who stayed in this area of Iowa. My grandfather Roger and his two
older brothers, however, left Iowa and moved to Sargent County in North Dakota, around
1910 or earlier. There may have also been two more brothers, named Karl and Olaf Lee. We
are looking for more information regarding the parents of all these Lee children (my great
grandparents), who were both born in Norway and may have been named Halvor and Ragna.
