James Franklin (J. Frank) Lee, the Heaviest VeteranThe Heavy Veteran Dead James F. Lee died at his home in Bangor village at 2:10 a. m. Monday, Aug. 15th, 1898, aged 59 years, nine months and nine days. His funeral was held at the Christian church Tuesday afternoon the address being delivered by Eld. E. H. Allen. In many respects this was the most remarkable funeral ever held in Van Buren county, as Mr. Lee was conceeded to be the heaviest man in the state. A few weeks before his death his weight being 480 pounds, and it was estimated that his weight at death was about 500. The casket containing the remains of Mr. Lee was specially ordered by Undertaker Sherrod, was about four feet in width, and six and a half feet long. This would not go through an ordinary door, it being necessary to take the body out of the house before placing it in the casket. Eight young strong men were selected as pall bearers, and several others gave their assistance, all having plenty to do to get the ponderous casket in and out the church. A casket of this size would not go in an ordinary hearse, so a canopy top spring wagon was specially arranged to carry it. Uncommon as it is to conduct funerals of this kind it passed off without incident, and a large number of people followed the body to its last resting place in Arlington Hill. James F. Lee was born in Indiana, and came to Michigan May, 1862. He served his country during the rebellion, at the time of his entering the sevice his weight being about 130 pounds. He was married to Miss Emily Willis in 1861. To them was born four daughters, all of whom with their mother survive him. THANKS.

FROM THE SAMUEL LEE FAMILY CLARION
The following is taken from the "Samuel Lee Family Clarion," published June 1859. "The family divided and we find Samuel along with three of his sons listed in the 1850 Census at Tooele, Utah. Elizabeth is listed in the 1850 Census at Randolph Co., Ind., living with her oldest daughter, Sarah Abernathy.

There was a Quaker school located in this area and Elizabeth, being a staunch Quaker, settled in this local for her children's schooling. This put part of the family in the West and the other part in the East. Samuel Lee was headed West in the California gold fields when he found his three sons coming to Utah with early pioneers. Samuel changed his mind about California and settled down in Tooele, Utah. The three sons, Alfred, Francis, and Eli, were called to southern Utah to colonize. Samuel must have relocated in Salt Lake City area as we find from his death certificate that he died April 14, 1859 from old age and bite of a dog. Samuel died while living in the sixteenth ward and is buried in a potters plot in the Salt Lake City cemetery, located in Plot D, Block 11, lot 9."

  2. Very good information & helpful but
    for Samuel Lee Abernathy you have listed a son Junri Zeny where did you get this spelling, also the names for the twins? This is our family & we have the spelling as Zimri Abernathy b.1858-1934.
    Zimri married Sarah "Sadie" Clayton having 3 children. Ethel Marie b. 1-18-1907 d. 5-31-1971, James Robert 10-5-1910 d, 12-9-1976 & Unk 9-6-1914 d. 9-6-1914
