Remembrances of Mark Woolnough Lee and his children, shared by niece Loa Lee Hansen (via email before her death)

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

. In visiting with Happy a couple of years ago she was talking about being a small girl living with the Daniels. She wasn't sure how old she was at the time but thought maybe around 5 yrs. old. We could figure it out by seeing which year uncle Mark was shot and died. She said she remembered someone coming to the door and telling them that Mark Lee was dead. She didn't know who it was but she overheard them say that. She said she didn't know her dad very well, but always knew Mark Lee was her dad. She said he came on holidays and her birthday but she didn't know him much. She could remember going into the bedroom and putting her head over her arms on the bed and crying because her father was dead but it didn't all really register with her as she was very young at the time. She also told me a bit about another time after she was first married to Emil. They lived, I think she said east of Rigby a little way and right across the street from the Petersen family which was the family of her brother Ted's wife Francella. She said she saw Ted going into the house at the Petersen's and she called across the road to him and said, " I think you are my brother." He called back and said, "Yes, I think so." They exchanged a few words and went their separate ways. She said she really didn't know her own family very well and they didn't have a lot to do with each other. She did visit with her sister that were around the area at times. Before my mother died she had a luncheon one afternoon for all the aunts and nieces in the Lee family. She invited Happy and she came to my mother's home. I always remember how happy she was that mother invited her. I would run into her quite often in Rigby as I was shopping there. We got to know one another very well in the last 25 years. She was a very talented lady in poetry and many other ways. She made beautiful quilts and was a good woman. I'm going to miss her. I also remember the day the police came to our home to tell Grandma, Lee about Uncle Mark being shot. I was a small girl at the time. Uncle Mark and Ted, his son, and a friend of Ted's, Bob Streepe were getting wood out for Uncle Mark. They were down in the pasture where my dad's lambing sheds were at in Hibbard. They were pulling a big tree across the big meadow there with horses. Ted and Bob had a gun and were shooting rabbits. Bob went to hand the gun down to Ted and it accidently went off striking Uncle Mark and killing him. That big log was still there in that meadow until the time of the Teton Dam Flood and dad always told us this story about it.

Remembrances of Hattie's death from Mark's niece, Evva Lee Lenz

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Mark Lee’s niece, Evva, was sixteen and recounted her memories of the night Hattie died: From daughter Anna Louise Evva said her father got word late at night that Hattie wasn’t doing well and to come quickly. He left immediately, taking Fern and Evva with him. When they arrived, Hattie had died. Evva described it as a heartbreaking scene. Hattie had hemorrhaged delivering her eleventh child and the bed was soaked with blood. Uncle Mark on his knees by the bed, sobbing and holding on to his wife, crying “Hattie, don’t leave me. You have to stay and help me rear this family.” The newborn was lying in her dead mother’s arms and the other children in the family were standing around the bed crying. That very night, the Daniels (who were neighbors) took the newborn home with them and reared her. (The neighbor herself was left a widow just five years later.) Bessie and Mabel (Mark’s sisters) each took a child to raise. Oliver (the youngest Lee brother and unmarried at the time) later had some of the younger boys work with him in the sheep. Thelma, the oldest daughter took over much of the mothering. She married two years later and continued to help with her younger siblings. Evva remembers Mark as a happy-go-lucky, fun person to be around. He was killed in a hunting accident just ten years after Hattie’s death.

Life timeline of Mark W. Lee

1896
Mark W. Lee was born in 1896
Mark W. Lee was 12 years old when Ford puts the Model T car on the market at a price of US$825. Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. It was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and most luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom, and a 49% stake in Jiangling Motors of China. It also has joint-ventures in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Russia. The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is controlled by the Ford family; they have minority ownership but the majority of the voting power.
Mark W. Lee was 21 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Mark W. Lee was 32 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Mark W. Lee was 43 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Mark W. Lee died in 1942 at the age of 46
