September 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tickets Starting at: $10 – $15

Event Navigation

This illustrated talk will introduce the enigmatic women and children of the Lee family, including some less familiar material about the spouses and offspring of four of their children who grew to adulthood, of nine born over 16 years during their 30 years of marriage.

Colonel Lee’s wife, Martha Swett, was a younger half-sister of King Hooper’s second and principal wife of 28 years, Ruth Swett.
Each had lost her mother, though not their father, by age seven, with three younger siblings each, then raised their own children (20 combined!) next door to each other for twelve years, until Ruth’s death at age 43, eighteen years after Martha married and about five years before the Lee family moved into their grand new residence that is associated with them today –– a few years after the Lees’ eldest son had left for Harvard and about three years before he married.

Presented in cooperation with Marblehead Arts Association
