    Given that she spells it oddly, I tried another free site, Illinois Marriages,

    http://www.ilsos.gov/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html

    and found

    LEE, JOHN W to MORGAN, DERUSHA A

    On 1879-02-01 Book / Page /Lic 006/0062/00000022, JEFFERSON County

    You lucky dog - you have THREE ways of spelling her given name.

    This free site will tell you what county most towns are in

    Great question!!!

    Promise me you won't ask for a family coat of arms for the Lee family, or tell us your hair gets lighter in the sun, so are you a Swede or a Norwegian.
