      Note the possibility that the Mary J. (Molly) King of this entry and her husband William Lea both were initially buried in the Lea Family Cemetery that is near the New Hope United Methodist Church between Milton and Hamer in Caswell County, North Carolina) and that they had gravestones in that cemetery as of 1957. Source: Burch Blaylock Collection, Caswell County Register of Deeds (Yanceyville, North Carolina).

      That Molley King was the wife of this William Lea has not been confirmed and is based upon her gravestone, which states that her husband is William Lea. She is buried in the Lea Family Cemetery in Caswell County, North Carolina, that is associated with the Lea family of the William Lea shown here as her husband. The cemetery is located between Milton and Hamer and, in 1957 was on a dirt road near New Hope United Methodist Church. This would be near "Leahurst."

      Lea Family Cemetery. William Lea (1854-1924) and his wife Mary J. (Molly) King (1855-1939) had their remains removed from the Lea family cemetery and now rest at the Blanch Baptist Church. Ronald Daniel, who born in Leahurst and still resides there, remembers this being done. He was present when the graves were opened and described Mary J. (Molly) King Lea as having long brown hair and wearing dentures. Their daughters Ruby Lea and Myrtle Lea were responsible for the move. The sisters are also buried at the Blanch Baptist Church.
