TIMOTHY FISK LEE, a farmer of section 31, Fremont Township, Clark County, was born at Parishville, ST. Lawrence County, New York, June 23, 1854, the fifth son of Aaron Lee, who died in 1885, at the age of seventy-six years. His grandfather was of the early families of Essex County, New York, but the Lee family were originally from the green hills of Vermont. Aaron Lee was a farmer, and his children were Andrew J., Josephus, Ruth, Chloe A., Loren W., Noble L., Ellen A., Timothy Fisk and Oren D. All are living except Andrew J. and Josephus. Early during the last war Andrew J. enlisted in a company from St. Lawrence County, New York, and had served nearly his term of enlistment without injury when he received a wound which proved fatal a few days later. Of the remaining members of the family six came West, the youngest, Oren D., remaining with the parents upon the old farm where he still resides with his aged mother. Her family name was Sampson, and it was a representative family in the early annals of Vermont. Six years after his marriage, or in 1881, the subject of this sketch came to Clark County and settled upon his present farm of 120 acres. His diligence is shown in the amount under cultivation, the comfortable house, and the fine barn one of the best in this part of the county. All this, notwithstanding the weakness of his eyes, from which he has suffered all his life. He is very fond of live-stock, especially horses. His ultimate design is to give attention to stock-raising and the training of horses.
