Daniel W. Lee Reunion

The Leonard Preservation League in Leonard, Texas is hosting a Lee Family Reunion on July 21, 2007.  THe Reunion will be held at the Leonard Community Center on the North Side of the Square at 1:00 on Saturday of the Leonard Picnic.

Special guest will be members of this family, who still live in this area.

Families to be represented are Lees, Smith, Mahan, Durham, Davis, Bradley, Ward, McClanahan, Freeman, Reynolds and others.

Plans are for a few speakers, visiting and hopefully filling in some blanks of the family tree and a visit to the Lee Cemetery.

So plan your vacation around a trip to Leonard for the Leonard Picnic, the Lee Family Reunion and a visit to the Historical Museum.

Mark you calenders for July 21, 2007.



     This Cemetery is well kept and fenced and sits right next to the road just a bit over into Hunt County from the Fannin County Line.
     From the downtown Leonard square, take Hwy. 78 S. and go about a block past the overhead Railroad trestle to Fannin County Rd. # 5065 (abt. .25 m.west of city square) turn left and go 2.2 miles to the intersection of Hunt County Rd. #1135 and #1137, turn right on #1137 and go west 1.5 m.
     The Cemetery is on the right.In the past it was unkempt and had much vandalism; but good attempts at trying to preserve it have been taken

* in Jan 2006 David Womack found it had been vandalized. Below is the damage to the gate and individual tombstone damage is shown on the tombstone pages.

Numbers are bent and broken off
