Love to leave flowers.
First and foremost it's Hello Cmarek, you are ungraceful about leaving flowers on your memories. You states unrelated to your memories, well let me tell you that I was following the Find A Grave RULES~~~ To Visit Memories And Leave Flowers On The Memories. And I Feel That The Flowers Are Beautiful As So Many People Has Said So, By Thanking Me. You Can REMOVE THE FLOWERS YOURSELF. I've Never Heard That Flowers Stop Anyone For Working On Their Memories... WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! Why Not Put On Your Memories PLEASE DON'T LEAVE FLOWERS ON MY MEMORIES. And I Would Not Leave Flowers On YOUR MEMORIES... You Can't Stop Me For Leaving Flowers on UNRELATED MEMORIES!!! STOP HURTING PEOPLE, FOR SHOWING LOVE WEATHER THEY ARE RELATED TO THE PERSON OR NOT!!! SMILE AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

RE: Joseph Edward Lee
Joseph Connor Collinson left bequests to more than 25 family members. I call him The Philanthropist.
His paint store was at various locations but seemed to be near the Lexington Market, a choice place where people shopped.

1867; Collinson, J. C., dealer in paints, oils, glass, and putty, 240 Lexington St., Baltimore, MD
The store was near the Lexington Market, established 1782.

1868, 1870, 1873: J. C. Collinson, Dealer in Paints, Oils, Window Glass, & etc; 230 Lexington St., second door from Greene. (Woods, Baltimore Directory)

1872, 1875, 1877, 1878, 1881: J. C. Collinson, Paints, Oils, Glass, & etc.; 230 Lexington, Dwelling, 246 Lanvale St. (Woods Baltimore Directory)

1888 - 1890: City Directory, Baltimore, Maryland; business 608 W. Lexington, Baltimore; Residence: 1008 West Lanvale St. Baltimore.

Best, Mary

RE: Joseph Edward Lee
Maybe you can shed some light on this:

Joseph Connor Collinson (1828-1897) left money in his estate for 5 namesakes; nephews and great nephews named after him.

Joseph Connor Collinson did leave money to Joseph Connor Lee, but qualified it saying this person was the son of Col. Joseph E. Lee.

Do you have any evidence that Joseph Edward Lee, husband of Anna W. Sommerlock, was ever referred to as Colonel? I have not been able to find any military service records.

Again, we know Joseph Edward Lee worked in the paint and oil store of his uncle, Joseph Connor Collinson from at least 1885. Joseph Edward Lee's son was born 1883. Circumstantial evidence that the middle name might be Connor.

Best, Mary

I was wondering if these folks are related to you? You sent me some edits for them

RE: Joseph Edward Lee
As I mentioned, Joseph Edward Lee worked for his uncle, Joseph Connor Collinson, in the paint and oil business in Baltimore, MD.

Also Joseph Connor Lee, son of Joseph Edward Lee, received in 1898 a bequest of $200 in the will of Joseph Connor Collinson, his great uncle.
