"John W. Lee age 38, son of Randolph Lee, of Wabash Township died very suddenly on Wednesday night last of rheumatism of the heart, a disease he had been afflicted with since his return from the army. He leaves his wife and 3 children."
(Source: Clark County Herald, Friday, March 15, 1872, pg. 5.)

During the Civil War, he served in the Union Army as a corporal and sergeant in 85th Regiment, Indiana Infantry, Company F. This service is recorded on cemetery records, however he is shown as "John M. Lee" on the cemetery roster. This is an error, perhaps in reading the stone. His military, family and census records confirm his middle name was "William".

(Name in some records is "William John Lee".)
