Lee, George Hay, was born in Winchester in 1808, studied at the University of Virginia, 1827-28, and was a student
of law under Judge Henry St. George Tucker, at Winchester, Virginia. In 1854 he was elected by the people, pursuant
to the convention of 1850-51, a member of the Supreme Court of Virginia. At this time he was living in what is
now West Virginia. He never sat after 1861, because West Virginia was recognized by Lincoln and his cabinet as
an independent State.
