I greatly appreciate your reply.
Since the time that I posted the original information, it has become apparent from our research that the original surname for the family was "Schlia" (or "Schlija"). The spelling was then changed to "Schlee" when the family emigrated to the United States.
It is also probable that the family came from West Prussia, most likely from the region of Sobbowitz about 40 km south of Danzig.
Again, thanks for your help and reply.
