  1. Joe I don’t remember them ever saying they knew the Lee family but that is not saying they didn’t know them. I was a child and both of them are deceased. Our name was Brannen and my father worked for Coca Cola in Statesboro for years. I am 71 now.

    Your parents may have known the Lee family from Register as I’m 66. I googled Register and seems it was named after Pierce Register. There was a newspaper article also. It had a fuzzy photo of AJ Lee. May have been my great grandfather.

    Thanks for replying.

    I went to a one room schoolhouse here in Register. We had, as I remember, 6 grades in one room. I am only 71 years old. Good old days.

      My grandmother was from Register. Her name is Lottie Lee Hussey. Her father was Andrew Jackson Lee and her mother was Mollie Nevil. My grandmother had a brother Raymond and several sisters. At one time my grandmother had a photo of the whole family on a porch of a bid farm house. I wish I had a copy. My grandmother,great grandmother and great grandfather are buried in Lower Lott’s Creek Cemetery. I’m sure several of her sisters are there. I know my great aunt Ila (Ila Bird) is buried there.

        Joe I went to Register elementary school around about that time because I am 71 too. That shocked me when I read that. We had all the classes in 1 room. I believe it was the 1st or 2nd grade. WOW! We are going back a few years. Thank you for writing and we were probably in the same school house. Shirley
