Lee family page


Jerripedia contains records of many people born in Jersey, who emigrated to Australia and died there. Edith Mary Lee took the journey in the opposite direction. She was born in New South Wales in 1869, of Australian parents, and moved to Jersey, probably in the 1930s, with her third husband, John Joseph Power (1881-1943). He died in Jersey during the German Occupation and she lived in the island until 1961
