THOMAS P. LEE, Oil
Born at Petroleum, W. Va., March 19, 1871, the son of Alexander and Martha J. Lee. Mr. Lee was born in the oil fields, and it was natural for him to get into the petroleum business. He has been in it all his life -in West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Ohio, learning all the while and overlooking no opportunity to add to his store of knowledge. From 1887- he got going when he was only 16- to 1903 he steadily climbed in the business, for with knowledge came ability and reputation; and when he came to Texas in 1903 to join the producing forces of the Texas Company he had achieved such standing as made him an expert. For ten years he remained with the Texas Company, the corporation growing steadily in the meantime in all departments, and more especially in the production end. In 1914, with J. S. Cullinan, Will C. Hogg, James L. Autry and E. F. Woodward the Republic Producing Company was organized and Mr. Lee was made president of it. He had not only the experience gained in the Northern fields, but he had a working knowledge of the Texas fields, and more especially a thorough acquaintance with the Coastal fields. From the moment of organization the Republic Company has been one of the foremost, and its president is one of the biggest men in the Texas oil fields today. He is a member of the Houston Club, the Houston Country Club, is an Elk, a Mason, and a Shriner. He married, April 24, 1900, Miss Essie Maybell Horton, and there are six daughters: Mabel, Maudie, Ethel, Maxine, Thelma and Marjorie.

May songs of the angels welcome you and guide you along your way. May the smiles of the martyrs greet your own as darkness turns into day. Every fear will be undone and death will be no more as songs of the angels bring you home before the face of God.
