L. T. LEE, farmer and stock-dealer, section 28, is numbered among the enterprising and successful business men of Athens Township. He was born in Henry County, Iowa, July 1, 1854, son of S. M. LEE, a native of Illinois, who came to Henry County in 1838, when Burlington had but one log store. His mother was E. CARTER, a native of West Virginia. His parents reared a family of eleven children, and all are living. Our subject was the third child, and when two years of age his father removed to Union County, where the family resided four years. They then returned to Henry County, where they lived eight years, thence to Union County again. In 1874 the family came to Ringgold County. Mr. LEE received his education at Mt. Pleasant and New London.

He was married November 15, 1877, to Miss Mary LIVERMORE, of Ringgold County, daughter of A. LIVERMORE, and a year later settled upon his present farm which was then wild land. He purchased eighty acres, and has since added to his first purchase until he now has 213 acres under a high state of cultivation. He has a good, comfortable residence surrounded by shade and ornamental trees, an orchard of 200 trees and small fruits, a barn, 40 x 44 feet, and out-buildings for stock, etc. He is engaged in stock-raising, feeding, and shipping stock.
