Lee lived in this vicinity all his life, except 15 months which time he was serving his country helping quell the great World War, serving 10 months in France in the 64th Machine Gun Company of the 7th Division. He was under shell fire for 40 days and in the front line trenches 14 days and in position to shell Metz when the orders were flashed over sea and land that hostilities should cease. Lee was an obedient son, a loving brother and a true friend beloved by all whom he came in contact with during his brief stay with us. He leaves to mourn their loss his father, mother, six brothers, four sisters and one nephew besides other relatives and friends. He will be deeply mourned by his fellow comrades of the World War, a great many of whom attended the funeral in service uniform. Six of his comrades acted as pall bearers. Funeral services were held at the Pleasant Valley township Evangelical church Monday. Burial took place in the Pleasant Valley cemetery.
