‡ General
  • Name Change: During prohibition, the Christensen family was having some difficult time pulling through without their hootch, so instead of taking it up with the folks in Congress at the time like the civilized men that they didn't fit in with, Johan and his brothers would sneak alcohol across the Canadian. Once the Sheriffs caught onto what they were doing, they began tracking them down. Once the brothers realized that they weren't as sneaky as they thought and the sheriff was looking for them, they changed their name from Christensen to Lee.
  • Told from Jack Roland Lee to me (E.R. Lee) on August 11, 2015. (I'll continue to flush out this story when I peace it together with documentation, etc.
