I so often get family genealogy questions I forget that I could also get genealogical questions from my research interests. I have nine documents relating to Riley Lee from my research and I would be happy to share them with you.
email me directly at my firstname.lastname@example.org account, please. I will then send them as attachments.
If you have any family stories you might wish to share about Riley Lee that would be great too!
Bless me but I haven't a clue as to what you are talking about! I have no Mackey's in my lines that I know about and I do not have a blog. I see one of my Meekins ancestors has a daughter Minnie who marries a Lee but I have no further information on that line.
I wish I could be more helpful - cause it sounds like someone was very helpful for you.
