Sorry. All the family obituaries and stories in county histories says the only five children of Joshua Lorenza & Cynthia Perry (Hepler) Lee to reach adulthood were Robert Edward "Ed", Albert Sidney "Bert" who died 6 Mar 1957; George Lorenzo who died 18 Apr 1944 in Wakefield, R.I., Nell who married Herman Rountree and Clara who married Simon Honig. Son Perry died young and is buried at Chadwick. I don't know what happened to the other three children or their names or genders, but only these five were mentioned in J. L.'s 21 Jun 1894 obit or in Ed's or Bert's family summaries in county histories.
This is an excerpt (I don't have the entire obit) from the Thursday Morning June 21 1894 Springfield, MO newspaper:
Last night about 6 o'clock, J. L. Lee was taken with a stroke of paralysis and died at 7:45. This is the second stroke Mr. Lee had suffered. The first one was three years ago last February in Lead Hill, Arkansas when his left side became paralyzed. Since that time he has been partially helpless, being confined to the house most of the time. At the time of his death, there was no one at home but Mrs. Lee and her daughter Clara. Ed Lee is at Arlington on a fishing trip and will reach home this morning on the Frisco. Miss Nellie is at Lebanon and will come in on the same train. George is camping out down on the James. He has been sent for. Bert is at Sparta where he has been in charge of his father's business. He will drive to Springfield at once. . . . He was born in Thomasville, N. C. fifty-six years ago this last May. [that is, May 1838]
