Henry Lee Dies

Recent letters from Mrs. Henry Lee of Zephyr Hills, Florida tell of the serious illness and death of her husband, Henry Lee, formerly of Vernon.

Mr. Lee had planned to attend the G.A.R. Encampment in Boston and meet old friends there and then visit the friends in Vernon. Just before time to start north he was taken ill with southern dysentery and the end came quickly.

Henry Lee was a son of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Lee. He was born in Vernon Feb. 22, 1840. When the Civil war broke out, Mr. Lee enlisted in Michigan as a sharpshooter. After the war he traveled a great deal. He married Nellie Streeter in Michigan and during the last years of his life he made his home in Zephyr Hills, Florida.

He leaves his wife, who will accompany the body north for burial. Services will be held Friday at 2 o'clock at Tyler cemetery, where the burial will take place.
