James Archibald Lee (1866–1928)

The death occurred of Mr. John Archibald Lee on October 27 at the Kingaroy General Hospital. Deceased, who was 62 years of age, was a very old identity of Nanango. He was born at Wallumbilla station, Maranoa district, in 1866, and was the eldest son of the late Archibald Lee, who was Police Magistrate of Nanango for over 30 years. The late Mr. J. A. Lee went to Nanango in the early '70's, and had since followed farming and grazing pursuits in that district. He was for over 25 years a member of the Nanango Shire Council, and for many years its chairman, only resigning recently through ill-health. The deceased is survived by his widow, one son, and two married daughters, Mrs. Geo. Pledger, of Broadwater, and Mrs. Alben Perrett, of Elgin Vale, Nanango district; also five brothers, among whom are Mr. J. D. Lee, manager of the Commercial Bank of Australia, Kingaroy, and Frank and Fred. Lee, both of whom are connected with the New Zealand Loan Co. in Brisbane.
