    Notes 
    • From: Allan Horrocks
      Lee was a rancher. His ranch was up the Elk River, between Steamboat
      Springs and Clark, Colorado. The family story is that he bought this
      ranch with his winnings from gambling. He lived here from 1900 until his
      death in 1951. The ranch was willed to the Steamboat Springs Hospital
      with the proviso that they would care for him in his old age (when he
      couldn't stay on the ranch unattended). They later sold the ranch to
      outside interests. The writer was at the ranch in 1947, when he
      accompanied his Grandmother (Clara Viola Hendrick) to a family reunion
      with her sisters (Nelson). I don't remember Lee being very talkative, but
      perhaps he just had nothing to say to a 15 year old - children should be
      seen but not heard. The writer has copies of the letters he wrote to his
      nieces over the period 1940-1950. He usually wrote to one and then the
      girls passed them around to each other. In his writings, he did not
      appear to be the kind of man who would be a gambler. He spoke of
      carefully spending each dollar he earned.
