Wife of Sidney S. Lea

"Sidney Lea's 'Mansion House' still stands on the opposite side of the road from the Blanch, N. C. Prison Camp and it is within one-half mile of the old Beulah Baptist Church site. There Lea buried his wife and erected a beautiful marble stone at her grave. It is assumed that he was later buried beside her. His grave was never marked and presently briars, trees, bushes, engulf the entire cemetery. Sidney Lea was a great benefactor of Wake Forest College. Following the death of his wife he made his will and left the residue of his estate to Wake Forest College and the Baptist Orphanage. in his latter days he stayed with others. Even though his will was recorded, it was not effectual." (1984, From Rabbit Shuffle to Collins Hill: Stories of Southern Caswell County, North Carolina, Millard Quentin Plumblee)
