  HARMON A. LEE, a retired farmer of Wauseon, was born in Holmes county, Ohio.  He is the son of Josiah and Nancy (Stickle) Lee, both natives of that State.  His grandfather was James Lee, a pioneer settler in the land of the Buckeyes.  Josiah Lee was born in Holmes county, in 1825, and came to Fulton county in 1845.  Ten years later he bought a farm in Chesterfield township of that county, where he spent the remainder of his life.  In public affairs he took quite an active part, serving as township trustee and assessor.  In religious matters he was actively identified with the Christian church.  He married Miss Nancy Stickle, a native of Holmes county, her parents having come to that county from Pennsylvania.  The marriage of Josiah Lee and wife was blessed with the following children:  Mary Ann, who married Silas Barton of Chesterfield township, both deceased; Wesley, who enlisted as a soldier in the Civil war and died in a hospital in New York City; J. C., of Chesterfield township; Harmon A., the subject of this sketch; Martha J. the widow of Frank Gray, who died in Fayette, Fulton county.  Josiah died at his home in 1890, aged sixty-five years.  Harmon A. Lee was reared on a farm and educated in the public schools of his native county.  Seven years ago he came to Wauseon from his farm in Dover township.  As a farmer he has been so successful that he has been enabled to retire from active work and to enjoy his well-earned wealth.  In a financial way he is looked upon as one of the most solid men of the county, enjoying the esteem and respect of his fellow citizens.  In the Spanish-American war he enlisted in Company G of the Sixth Ohio volunteer infantry, with the rank of head quartermaster and sergeant of the company, but was taken sick at Chickamauga Park and discharged from the service.  As a member of the Spanish War veterans he takes an active part in the work of that organization.  He is also identified with the Knights of Pythias.  He married Miss Ester J. Wood, the daughter of Gilbert and Dellia (Griffin) Wood of Dover township.  Gilbert Wood was born and reared near New London, Huron county, O., his people having come to that county in 1836.  Coming to this county, in 1865, he bought a farm, on which he died March, 11, 1902, aged seventy-one years.  His wife, the daughter of Ezekiel and Esther (Rose) Griffin, was born in Green county, N. Y., and died Feb. 21, 1891, aged fifty-nine years.  J. R. Griffin, an uncle of Mrs. Lee, lives at Brailey, this county.  The Wood family came from near Rochester, N. Y.  Grandmother Wood was a Reynolds and her mother a Lyon, both prominent families in the Empire State.
