Joyce:

I have the Lee Cemetery in Chatham Twp. as my brother-in-law lives on one of the Lee Farms about a quarter of a mile from the Lee Cemetery in Deerfield Twp. There were two Lee farms and the Cemetery was sectioned off from the upper one that Dick and Ann Rumberber live on. The Line is just below their house and the cemetery is east of their farm. It is located on the Lee Road. So the location would be Chatham Towlship---about 1/4 mile from Deerfield Twp.

Moses Lee owned the two farms at one time and did a lot of surveying of the area. He gave the land for the Lee Cemetery and he and his family and other relatives are buried there.

The Lee Cemetery is definitely in Chatham Township. Actually it is in what used to be known as East Chatham. A small hamlet years ago, had a cheese factory, a post office, a mercantile store and a church. Bradley bgrice@penn.com
