Silas Lee    

SILAS LEE, deceased, was a native of Bucks county, Pennsylvania, where his ancestors had lived since before the Revolutionary war. The family is related to the Lees of Virginia. Our subject removed from Bucks county to Connersville, Indiana, in 1821, where he read law with Oliver H. Smith, subsequently a United States senator from that state, was there admitted to the bar, and began the practice of his profession at Perrysburg, Ohio. After practicing some ten years he returned to his native county and gave up the legal profession, afterward engaging in agricultural pursuits. He was mar­ried at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Mrs. Jane Patterson, nee Holmes, a native of County Fermanagh, Ireland, of which union six children were born. Soon after his marriage Mr. Lee removed to Sharon, Pennsylvania, thence to Iowa in 1857, and afterward to Virginia, where he remained until July. 1860, when, seeing the symptoms of the coming civil war, he brought his family to Franklin. Here he died August 13, 1871, aged eighty-three. His widow survived him until March 14, 1876, dying at the age of sixty-nine. Their family consisted of the following children: Frances Gage, de­ceased wife of George S. King, of Franklin; Ambrose R., of Erie; John H., of Franklin; Mary C., who died in childhood; James W., attorney at law, Franklin, and Clara N., wife of Reverend Reuben F. Randolph, a Methodist preacher now stationed at Buffalo, New York. The parents were adherents of the Methodist Episcopal church, and died in that faith. Politically Mr. Lee was first a Whig, and after the dissolution of that party he became a Republican.
