History of Anchor and Lee Line by William Tippitt

This page was copied from the microfilm version of William Tippitt’s History of the Anchor and Lee Line on file at the Tennessee State Library, Nashville Tennessee.   While at the library recently, we ordered digital copies of this 2 roll History of the Anchor and Lee Line.  James Lee Sr.’s early life is documented.  I will be adding this history of his early life in the future.  Way’s Packet Directory list the steamboats owned by various Lee family members as well as the Lee Line, however,  William Tippitt’s history gives a much more detailed picture of the boat ownership prior to the Lee Line operating from Memphis as well as during its operation and following the company liquidation in 1926.   William Tippitt knew G Peters Lee. page9 boats owned (1)
