Lee married Ollie Nash It is believed they ran away together, and she was only around 15.
A child of Lee and Ollie was Essie Lee Dodge. She married Daniel Malone who was raised in an orphanage in Colorado.

Essie and Daniel had Ollie Elaine Malone (Little Patty she was called) There was one other child who died as an infant.

Edward E Dodge was in the Cavalry in Louisiana and enlisted in June of 1862. A copy of his application for pension is dated Januaray 23, 1911 from the Rapides Parrish, State of Louisiana.
In his application, he seems to be 56 yrs. but lists that he only had 8 children, so possibly one died?)
There is also some sort of legal document dividing land acreage.??(It is very hard to read the writing)
