Arthur Lee, born abt 1836 in Virginia was an emancipation patriot serving in two different regiments from Ohio during the Civil War, and lived therein apparently as a brother to other Lee siblings relocating there during and after the war. 

It is significant that he fathered and named his first child William, born in 1867, attesting that he quite likely believed William Lee of revolutionary war fame, was his grand-father and that Colonel John Lee, for whom he named a second son was the great-grandfather. 

The story is made more creditable by fact that he named his daughter Mary AGNES Lee suggesting that his mother whom we believe was his grandmother Agnes Lee. We believe such data is more than a mere coincidence and supports our faith that most mothers, both slave and free, knew and passed on names, places and circumstances of men who fathered their children.
