John was born in 1827. He is the son of John Lee and Harriet Rose. He passed away in 1908.


Sarah Heiney believes that this is the man who very briefly served as Quartermaster of the 1st Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry (from May-August 1861), based on the facts that: the age (35 in 1861) matches; middle initial matches; both were from Massachusetts; the muster rolls describe the Qr. Master as a "merchant," while the genealogical register describes this man as "retired merchant."
