I have an 1883 bio from the History of Bremer County, Iowa, for L.E. Losee, a native of DeKalb county, Illinois, born July 1, 1845.He there received a common school education, and when old enough, learned the carpenter's trade, which occupation he has since followed in connection with farming.In May 1872, he came to Bremer County, Iowa, and bought a farm in Douglas township upon which he has since resided.He has been asessor of the town for one term, and also secretary of School District No. 2 for three years.Mr. Losee was married in Boone county, Illinois, September 15, 1870, to Miss Fannie A. Jones, a native of Hillsdale county, Michigan, born on the 6th day of September 1845.When she was 8 years of age, her parents moved to DeKalb county, Illinois, where she grew to womanhood.They have been blessed with four children - Clayton, born August 6, 1871; Harry, born August 4, 1874; Edith, born October 17, 1877; Lyndes, born April 22, 1879. (end) I hope this is helpful to someone.
