Stephen Lee was born September 1719 in Edgewater, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA to Richard Henry Lee (1691-1735) and Judith Steptoe (1680-1740) and died June 1791 Lewisburg, Mason County, Kentucky, USA of unspecified causes.

Stephen Lee was accepted as the son of Richard and Judith Lee by the Lee Society in 1952 on what has been described as "thin" evidence. There are many records that prove Stephen Lee's life, but none that prove his birth. He has a voter record in Stafford County in 1755. He bought land in the same year in Fairfax County. He appears on the tax rolls for Prince William County for more than thirty years. He sold goods to England prior to the American Revolution and was owed money in 1774, as recorded in London. He emigrated to Kentucky c.1789, and died there, leaving a will dated 1791. He was buried at "Leewood," Maysville Kentucky. His tombstone has become difficult to read from age but it states his date of death in his 8?th year. The second digit is no longer legible. If he died in 1791 in his 80th year, he was born c.1710-11, which makes him too old to be Richard and Judith's son. A photo of his gravestone has been requested, but the cemetery is now on private property, and we may not be able to get one. [See]
