An electronic online
of a collection of family papers (MSA SC 1848), the originals of which for the most part are now owned by the Maryland Historical Society. They are in large measure the papers of Maryland Governor Thomas Sim Lee (1745-1819), his son Congressman
John Lee (1788-1871), his son-in-law Senator Outerbridge Horsey (1777-1842), and his grandson Outerbridge Horsey II (1819-1902), owners of a family estate, Needwood, in Frederick County, Maryland. Because of the connection of the Lees to the
Carroll family, the collection also contains letters between Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737-1832), the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, and his father, dating from the mid-eighteenth century when the signer was
abroad in school. There are 1871 items in the collection, inventoried and indexed by the accompanying Guide, which is linked to an online exhibit relating to Governor Lee and his family prepared by the staff of the Maryland State Archives.
