BIOGRAPHY

GEORGE W. LEE at the breaking out of hostilities was a carpenter by trade and after the interruption of war service took up the work again, and became somewhat prominent as a builder In the city of Burlington. As a soldier he enjoyed that life less than any man in the company. The conditions and general run of things were not to his liking. However he was a useful man and did more hard work in the capacity of cook than any of us. When the order came to march in pursuit of Lee he took his gun and stepped into the ranks where he remained to the close. He died December 1st, 1903.
