Death: Oct. 12, 1909

Leonard Groce Gee of Velasco, Tex., a Confederate veteran, died yesterday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. A. Vardell, in this city.

He was born at Independence, Tex. March 5, 1838. His boyhood and youth were spent in the southern part of this State. At the outbreak of the war between the States, or upon the secession of Texas from the Union, he enlisted in the Confederate Army. He was in Company E Fifth Texas Regiment, Hood's Brigade. He served with distinction throughout the war. It is said of him that he was the man who at the battle of the Wilderness seized the horse of Gen. Robert E. Lee and led the General to the rear when he wanted to lead the Texas brigade in its famous charge.

Mr. Gee was married in Washington County to Miss Mary Alcorn, second daughter of Col. T. J. Alcorn, one of the early settlers. His wife died some years ago. He is survived by these brothers: J. W. Gee of Bryan and J. B. Gee of Austin. His daughters are Mrs. A. A. Vardell and Mrs. A. M. Gantt of Dallas and Mrs. J. B. Wallace of Fort Worth.

Funeral services will be held at the Vardell residence this morning at 10 o'clock. Confederate veterans are to be the pallbearers. Gen. W. L. Cabell of whose staff Mr. Gee was a member for many years will lead the honorary pallbearers. Interment will be in Oakland Cemetery. The active pallbearers will be Major J. H. Bryan, Judge Anson Rainey, Col. Robert E. Cowart, Gen. H. W. Graber, Capt. George W. Blair, and S. P. Mendez. The honorary pallbearers: Gen. W. L. Cabell, Gen. R. M. Gano, Major J. W. Daniel, Col. Milton Park, Capt. J. H. Mathis, and Col. Oliver Steele
