Mount Vernon, January 14, 2024

Welcome to my home page.


I'm Steve Lee, a retired United Methodist pastor living in Davidson, North Carolina.

For information on my home town, see the Shelby Star site. I've posted the article they printed about my father's memories of his grandfather Isaac Mooney. You can see his headstone on my page of pictures from the Mooney Family Cemetery.

My great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was Col. Frederick Hambright, who was wounded at the Battle of Kings Mountain. You can see his ceremonial sword at the visitors center at the KM National Military Park in South Carolina.
