Oh, duh, sounds like they thought of this already...

Elizabeth Doyle and John Doyle

My mother was born in Nashville, Tennessee.
This has neither been verified nor disproved. Elizabeth was probably born in Randolph County, Illinois. Elizabeth needed to be old enough to marry Reed by 1805 and have Eliza Virginia in 1806. If Elizabeth were minimally 14 years old when she got married, she would have to be born before 1791. If she got married as early as 1799, as John D. Lee says, she would definitely be born in Randolph County, Illinois, where her parents lived from the time they were married until 1789.

John D. Lee probably got the information for his mother's birth from Charlotte. Charlotte probably was not born in Illinois, but was probably born where ever the Doyles were living after they left Illinois in 1789 and before they returned in 1796. It could have been Nashville, Tennessee, but no proof has been found of the Doyles living there.
-Info by Mandi
If you read the last bit of info, JDL's marriage certificate states he married Elizabeth Doyle Reed, but her father's name is John Doyle.  I have a theory...  I think she must have been married prior to her marriage to JDL.  In the info found on it says -

My mother had two children by my father -- that is William Oliver and myself.
Since Ralph and Elizabeth were married on 26 February 1811, it is highly unlikely that John D. Lee had an older brother whose father was Ralph Lee. The earliest William Oliver could be born legitimately would be in December 1811 and Elizabeth would have to get pregnant immediately to have John D. on the 12th of September, 1812. In addition, no child of Ralph and Elizabeth was baptized near this time.

John D. Lee gives three children for his mother, a girl and two boys. In Kaskaskia church records there are three baptisms for children of Elizabeth or Eliza Doyle, a girl and two boys.

In the archives of the Catholic church in Belleville, there was a baptism for a Benjamin Rode, on Jan 29, 1809, with parents Jean/John [Rode] and Elizabeth Daille/Doyle. The child was born the 27th of January.

I am wondering if Rode is another way of saying Reed (since they were French, maybe it was slightly altered in translation, since Daille and Doyle were interchanged as well), therefore, maybe this is our Elizabeth Doyle and maybe she had this first child before marrying JDL.  Just my thoughts.  They could have even changed the boy's name so as not to point to the fact that it was possibly an illegitimate child, or from another father.  Sounds far fetched, but maybe true.

Breakthrough on John Doyle Lee line

For years we have shown John Doyle Lee's mother's (Elizabeth Doyle) parents as being John Doyle Lee and Evaline Smith.  I found on the John Doyle Lee's Family Organization a current ancestry done by the family organization genealogist names Rene Durfee, where it shows Elizabeth Doyle's parents as John Doyle b. 20 Sept 1760 Albemarle County, VA (History of Albemarle County, Revolutionary War records)  m. abt 1782 probably in Randolph County, Illinois. d. October 1819 Randolph County, ILL
Cloe Smith b. abt 1766; Virginia, probably Bedford county. (Not Evaline. )
     This is great information.  And, I am so thankful to have direction on who we come through.

Info on Hannah Procter

All of this info was found in the Chelmsford, Middlesex, Massachusetts vital records:

Birth...Proctor, Hannah d. Peter and Hannah Jan. 10, 1722-3 (that's exactly as it reads and through all of Chelmsford I find no record of any Hannah with parents of James and Judith under any of the spellings of Proctor, so if we are sure of her birth date, and birth place,  I'm pretty darn sure this is our Hannah)

Marriage...Procter, Hannah, and Moses Barrat [of Nottingham int.] (that just means their intention of marriage was recorded and that he was from Nottingham, they often filed the intention in both locations) Nov. 11, 1742

Marriage...Barrat, Moses [of Nottingham. int.] and Hannah Procter, Nov. 11, 1742

Birth...Barit, Moses, s. Thomas and Rachell, Feb. 1, 1718-19.

Marriage...Procter, Peter, and Hannah Harwood, int. Apr. 10, 1720.

Death...Prockter, Hannah, wid [Peter.P.R.4] bur. Oct. 2, 1781, a. 81 y. C.R.
1. [d. Sept. 30. P.R.4]

Death...Proctor, Peter, Feb. 20, 1772 [a. 78 y C.R.1]

I just looked up James Proctor and Judith Nichols to see why they were listed as her parents on some websites.  They are from Woburn , Mass, and I found vital records showing the birth of their daughter, Hannah Proctor b. 2 May 1727 in Woburn, Middlesex, however, I also found vital records showing she married a Joshua Reed 9 Jul 1742 in Woburn, and no record of marriage to a Barrett.  So I think we can conclude that our Hannah's parents were Peter Proctor and Hannah Harwood.

More Info on Nahum and Millicent Curtis

In December of 1832, the Prophet Joseph Smith and Jared Carter visited with Nahum and Millicent Curtis at their home in Silver Lake, Oakland County, Michigan. That night Nahum and Mary were blessed with a spiritual manifestation and heard a voice declare the truth of the Book of Mormon to them. They were converted and soon every member of the family joined the Church.

Info on the Mathieu Agee family

I also was looking at Grandma June Young Adams' line and googled:
Mathieu Agee (pronounced Ah-zhay, I was saying Ageeeee like the Utah State Agies)) came to America in 1690 where he gave up nobility to follow the French Hugenot's faith to get away from the persecution under King Louis ZIV.  Hundreds of thousands fled to Switzerland, the Netherlands, England, Germany and to the Colonies of America.  Mathieu Agee (Ah-zhay) landed in Virginia. His son Anthony was born in 1739.  This Anthony was a solier in the Revolutionary War.  Anthony and his wife Ann Gandovin or Godwin lived together for 75 years and had 12 children (only one girl who was named Leah)
     Leah married Sir George Thomas Smith and they had 12 children.  One of their sons was named James Agee Smith.
     James Agee Smith was married to Margaret Love and they had 7 children. One of their sons, Thomas Washington Smith, was converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was baptized 6 Jan (my anniversary :-)) 1841. He went to Nauvoo and was endowed in the Nauvoo temple in 1846.
    Most of this we have in our family genealogy.  But, I only had the year of Thomas' baptism date, not the date.  And to know how it was pronounced and that we have French blood in us was fun to know.
       Anyway, I have this in my files and will gladly share whenever you want.

Marriage record of Phineas Waite to Eunis Smith

Barre, Worcester, MA vital records shows:  "Eunis Smith & Phenihas Waitt m. 12 Jul 1795"
and... "Waitt [Wait in int.] ...meaning they intend to get married...Phenihas of New Salem and Eunis Smith, July 12, 1795"
(so I'm assuming the 2nd one announces their engagement and the first one announces the marriage)
also in New Salem, MA vital records ... "Wait, Phenihas, and Eunis Smith of Barre, at Barre, July 12, 1795 M.R." (M.R. meaning marriage records from other Mass. towns).
