Gillette, Lee 1856-1932 New Lisbon Obituary

New Lisbon Farmer Dies Suddenly at Family Home

Hartwick, April 25---Lee Gillette, 75, passed away suddenly Sunday evening about 8:30 o'clock at his home in New Lisbon. He had been in ill health for some time. Funeral services will be held from the family home Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Charles Vermilya, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at Garrattsville, will officiate. Interment will be in the cemetery at Welcome.
He was born July 20, 1856, at New Lisbon, and had always resided on the farm on which he died. When a young man he attended Gilbertsville academy and also united with the Methodist Episcopal church at Garrattsville. He was highly respected in the community and his many friends will extend their sympathy to the surviving members of the family.
Surviving are one son, Henry Gillette, South Hartwick; three grandchildren, Edna, Bernard and Doris Gillette, South Hartwick; one niece, Mrs. Belle Carkess of Lena, and two nephews, Isaac Firth of Florida and Lee Fitch of Mohawk.

P. S. In his daughter Mary Gillette Harrington's obituary, he was listed as Leander Gillette and her mother was listed as Matilda Gardner Gillette.
Mary is also buried at Welcome cemetery, so I would assume their mates
are also.
