|Birth: ||Oct. 11, 1874|
|Death: ||Apr. 22, 1942|
Son of John D. and Arminta (McCurry) Carr.
Lee grew up farming with his family in Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia in his youth. Census records indicate he was a coal miner at one point as well, prior to 1910. Lee married Mollie Castle in the 1890s.
Co-operated a housing construction business in Portsmouth, Ohio with his brothers Lewis and James until it collapsed in the 1920s. The family story is that when the business went bust Lee and James left, understanding no assets were left. That being said Lewis lived comfortably from land sales while his brothers struggled through the Depression.... conclusions can be drawn that Lewis did wrong by his brothers...
After that Lee worked as a tenant farmer in many places around Southern Ohio, also took jobs as a salesman, general store owner at various times. He and wife Mollie raised one grandson and hosted other grandchildren during summers at the various farms they worked in the 1920s and 1930s.
Lee and Mollie were living alone together in the early 1940s just outside of Chillicothe, Ohio when Lee went outside one morning for a stretch and walk. He passed away just a few steps out the door on morning in April of 1942 of a heart attack and complications of Tuberculosis. He was buried in a family plot in Chillicothe's Greenlawn Cemetery.
