Sons Daniel and Lee J. practiced law with their father. In 1900 Lee married Miss Joel Roberts, named after her grandfather, a wealthy planter and businessman from Mobile, Alabama. She became a sucessful architect and with Lee and Daniel formed Wildwood Builders, which designed and built over 300 modern Craftsmen style homes in Fort Wayne. Many articles can be found on the internet about the career of Joel R. Ninde. I would like to find photos of her or copies of her Wildwood Magazine (not the same as the more famous "Wildwood's Magazine).
