an early Methodist Episcopal minister, was born in Sussex County, Del., in 1761; entered the itinerancy in 1784; labored extensively in the West, mostly in Kentucky, until 1794, when he was appointed to New London, Conn.; to News York in 1795; to Philadelphia in 1796-7- 8; to Baltimore District in 1801-2-3; superannutated in 1804, and died in Arundel County, Md., Oct. 11 of the same year. Mr. Lee was "one of the most laborious and successful Methodist preachers of his time." He was eminently shrewd and circumspect, and deeply pious. He was "a witness of the perfect love of God for many years before he died. He was an excellent presiding elder, and an eloquent, argumentative, and often overpowering preacher. His labors in the West were very heroic, and contributed largely to the evangelization of Kentucky and Tennessee." Minutes of Conferences, 1:127; Stevens, Memorials of Methodism, ch. 18; Bangs, Hist. Meth. Episc. Ch. vol. 1. (G. L. T.)
