LEE, Stephen, Obituary

Died this morning, Mr. Stephen Lee, of Portland, Maine, in the 74th year of his age. Mr. Lee was a soldier in the Revolution; he was one of those patriots who fought in the first and last battles for independence, Bunker Hill and Yorktown. He was imprisoned in the Jersey Prison ship at the Wallabout, and escaped by swimming. He is a stranger in the city, and the friend of the stranger, and all those who venerate devoted patriotism, as well as the friends of his son, David Lee, Jr., and of his grandson, Jas. M. Lane, are invited to attend his funeral, to-morrow (Sunday) afternoon at 4 o'clock, from Masonic Hall, Broadway. [The Evening Post, (New York, NY), January 29, 1831, Sat., P.2]
