Biography

She married John Smith.

Note

"Phebe is either the dau. of Solomon Gee III & Elizabeth Bruce or Leuman Gee & Catherine Bruce. It's unclear which, but she does name a son, Solomon Gee Smith, which suggests, that Solomon III was her father. Additionally, Solomon III, in the 1800 NH Census, has a female under 10yrs old. Phebe fits here. In the 1810 VT Census he has a female 10 to 15yrs old. Again, Phebe fits here. By 1820, she is married & living with John Smith in Lunenburg.

Leuman is much more difficult to deal with, as he died in early to mid 1805 in Lunenburg. The 1800 NH Census for him is not very helpful as the number of girls does NOT add up. There should be more, but there isn't. However, if we take into consideration that Leuman & Catherine had a dau., Catherine "Caty" Gee, in July, 1800, does it seems plausible that they had a dau. 10 months earlier, in Sept. of 1799? That is a very short turn around.

Another contributor has stated that dna proves that Phebe is a dau. of Leuman, but given that Leuman & Solomon were brothers & married sisters, & given that they were 3rd, 4th or 5th great grandparents to us today, it seems that it would be very difficult to differentiate the two couples."
