I have three entries for Simon Lee in Greenbrier.
The first Simon Lee was the husband of Amanda White Lee. He appears on the 1870 census at age 57, with Amanda and with Joseph, Mary, Isabel, Moses, Peyton, Jane, Charity, Simon (age 5), and an unnamed 3 year old (who this compiler thinks was "Sissie" Lee) & Daniel, Georgianna, Mary, and another Preston (age 1). In 1880 he is 68 with Amanda, Isaac, Nimrod, Sissie, Alice, & with Isabella Williams & other members of the Williams family. He is the father of Peyton who died on 8/10/1880 at 23y. In 1886, his wife Amanda dies of consumption. He is the father of Isaac who died on 5/2/1890. He is the father of Isabelle C. Lee who died in 1928 & Sis Lee who died ? year.
The second Simon Lee was the husband of Isabelle Lee,and the son of Simon and Amanda Lee. He was the father of Alred M. Lee who died in 1922.
The third Simon Lee is Simon Peter Lee who was b. in Greenbrier but who registered for the draft in Pittston, Pa. at 65y old. He says he was b. at Lewisburg on 9/24/1876. He was 5'4", The person who would always know his whereabouts was Ada Morris of Lewisburg. He is listed as a white male with a "ruddy" complexion but this compiler believes that he was a black male.
