I am looking for the John Lee family. John Lee married JoAnna Powers and had George and John (possibly baptised in Lismore) and maybe more. They immigrated to Bennington, Vermont around 1856, I think.. The large family cemetery marker has "Waterford" across the side of it. Any help with Lee or Powers would be helpful. This is one of my brick walls!
Thank you for any suggestions!

I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and found a baptismal record May 30 1838 for a Johanna Lee with father John Lee and mother Johanna Power. The RC church was Lismore.
There was also a George Lee baptized November 2 1823 in Lismore with the same parents. Also a James Lee baptized February 14 1826 same parents and Lislmore. Finally a Mary Lee baptized October 11 1828 same parents and Lismore.
The family lived in Glengarra townland in Lismore and Mocollop civil parish.
I did not find the marriage record.
Is this the correct family?
