"The Gospel Messenger", Volume 21, No. 7 July 1899:

Mr. and Mrs. William Lee.

Mrs. Lucy Lee departed this life on June 29, 1898, at the age of 72 years, 3 months, and 24 days. Her original name was Magbee. She was born in Butts County, Ga., and died in Chambers County, Ala., where she had lived for many years. She was a member of the Missionary Baptist denomination, but for several years before her death was not able to attend religious meetings much, but showed clearly that she was a lover of the truth of the gospel, and died in the faith of Jesus, in whom she trusted and rejoiced until the last. While death was on her she praised His holy name and sang, "Oh for a closer walk with God", "I am going home to die no more", "Did Christ o'er sinners weep."

Her husband, Mr. William Lee, died March 23, 1899, in his 78th year. He never joined any religious denomination but in many ways bore fruit of that spirit of Jesus, such as love, joy, meekness, temperance, faith, etc. This couple lived together for many years as husband and wife in the most agreeable manner, and had for a long while resided on the spot where they died, and where they had raised a
family of four boys and three girls all grown, settled, moral and honorable men and women, still living to mourn the death of their father and mother. Some of them are members of the church of Christ (Note: The writer is referring to the Primitive Baptist church). Having known them for the last twenty years, the writer has reasons to believe that they now rest with Jesus. I send 50 cents for "Messenger" containing above to be sent to me. J. T. Satterwhite, Five Points, Ala.

Note: J.T. Satterwhite was pastor of the Mount Pisgah Primitive Baptist Church at Stroud.
