Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
May 29, 1902

OBITUARY - JOHN LEE.

John LEE was born March 17, 1831, in Morristown, Belmont County, Ill. He was married to Mary Esther FASSETT, April 20, 1856. They moved with their family of small children to Decatur County, Iowa, March 1869, and bought a farm. He has resided in the same county continuously till the time of his death, 11:15 a.m. May 19, 1902, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. F. SMITH, in Lamoni, after an illness of several months with heart trouble. He leaves his lonely wife after 46 years of married life, and four living children; Mrs. W. W. PEASLEY, of Kellerton; W. E. LEE of Davis City; Mrs. C. F. SMITH, of Lamoni, and Mrs. H. E. PERKINS of Kellerton. Their oldest daughter, Mrs. J. W. TURNER of Eagleville, Mo., died in July, 1881, and an infant son died in January, 1872. They have nine grandchildren living and four dead.

No one enjoyed life on having his children and grandchildren home more than he did, or did more for them to enjoy themselves. He has been a member of the Masonic Fraternity since 1l856, enjoying the workings of the Order as few men are capable. Large and warm hearted, generous to a fault, beloved in his own family which he idolized, he will be sadly missed by each one.

The funeral services were conducted from the home of C. F. SMITH Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock by President Joseph SMITH, after which the remains were taken to the Creveling Cemetery, where the Masonic Lodge of Davis City took charge of the services.
