2 LEE Kits #N115443 (son) and #306861 (father)
match "FRANKLIN CO PA" kits at 67 markers.
Also matching McPHERSON and MacKIE at 67.
LEE ordering 111 markers upgrade.

>"We could provide evidence that LEE and ELDER are Scotsmen together in Edinburgh:
"Lord Provost ELDER room at Univ. of Edinburgh":
"Portrait in ELDER Meeting room (Room 100) located
on the ground floor of Old College (South Side, Administrative
Offices entrance). It contains an oval table and can seat 16.
There is a connecting door to the LEE Room."

Found the LEE BIO for:
JOHN LEE (1779-1859) in University of Edinburgh
at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lee_(university_principal)
includes:
"John Lee (22 November 1779 – 2 May 1859) was a Scottish academic and
Principal of the University of Edinburgh from 1840 to 1859.
He was also a Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland…"
