I have been trying to find any information on one Zachariah Lee b 12/25/1812.  The only information I have - or anyone in our family - is of his birth date and date of death.  Any information would be appreciated greatly.

Thanks for your reply.  Yes, the 1850 census is correct; only he was actually in the household of Israel Shafer not Snieder. From 1850 until his death in 1889 we have been able to account for his movements.  It is before 1850 I am trying to figure out as well as who his parents are.  That is the big piece that is missing. 

 By the way, the 1880 census you sent me is not correct.  Thanks anyway though.

There is a Zachariah Lee in the Virginia Civil War Records that could be him. Also, there is a Zachariah Lee and a Zachariah Lee, Jr. on the 1820 US Census in Botetourt, Virginia which isn't far from August, Virginia where he was in 1850. Maybe this could be him and his father.

I'm not connected to this family but llike to help out if I can.

Good lucky in your search!

No, and would you believe that we found out through DNA that Zachariah Lee and his son are not even related to my Zachariah Lee
