History written from an unknown source, wrote, "William Lee and his wife Dicey Ennis Lee, with their older three sons and two daughters, migrated with his brothers and their families into Tennessee in 1828. Five more children were born to this couple while they were in Tennessee; then they moved to Marshall Co., MS where their eleventh child, James Henry was born. The family arrived in Arkansas in 1837, built a log cabin at Paint Rock. William Lee and some of his sons acquired land in the Clarksville-Spadra area in 1840, as reflected by Johnson County land records. His third son, Lovett Lee and family were still there when their son Robert was born in Spadra in 1851."
A notation left from an unknown source, wrote, "William Lee was a boy during the Civil War. I've heard grandma say a deer attacked him one time. She also said they were brought to the old fort in Ft. Smith for safety measures. The women that went through the Civil War really had a hard time."
By 1854, most of the Lee's had moved to homes south of the river, most of them in Clark, Johnson, and Titsworth Township. Daniel R. Lee, the eldest son of William Lee, lived in Clark Township just west of the present Subiaco city limits.

William Lee was a strong supporter of the Union during the Civil War. They were members of the Hard Shell Baptist Church.
