Welcome to

The Lee - Beckwith Family

Hello cousins and relatives,

This genealogy information is a labor of love. I have worked hard on creating this information. Some of it has been obtained from other sources and relatives, and is documented accordingly. My thanks to my cousins Nancy and Prissy for their help. And thanks to Shirley Anderson, Patty Myers, and Barbara for their information and help.

Because of the sensitive nature of some of this information, these pages are strictly for the personal enjoyment of related ancestors. The information contained herein is NOT for general public release and distribution among any CD, DVD, internet site, or any other media. If you wish to view the general public information, visit ancestry.com.

Thanks for your understanding.

The Lee family tree goes back to England. On my Mom's side (Catron), the tree extends into Canada and Germany (Kettenring). All German emigrants to America of the name of Kettenring or Kettering have been traced back to Hans Jacob Kettenring. I have some of our tree back to 1200!

I have family living in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska and Minnesota.

Terry's family tree dates back to the early 1500s. The line has families in Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, and Switzerland. It includes the Beckwith and Andersen lines. She has living relatives in Wisconsin and Illinois. We don't have much on the Andersen line, which comes from Denmark.

I still am doing a bunch of genealogical research. It's a lot of work, with lots of genealogy related resources on the web to be examined. One of the most comprehensive sites is the Roots Computing Genealogical Home Page. Some others are Genealogy SF, and Ancestry, and Genealogy Organization. I've listed some of them below.
