Notes for Reuben Lee Blackwell:
The third child, second son, of Josiah and Angeline Hardie Blackwell was my grandfather, Reuben Lee Blackwell. He was the only grandparent living when I gained an ability to remember. He was born three years after the Civil War ended. Daddy Lee was an educated man having earned two degrees from the University of Georgia.
He was a teacher and school principal, and, for four years, he served as Superintendent of Schools in Hall County, Georgia. Later he was County Agent in Calhoun, Georgia.
Daddy Lee’s first wife was Thanie Elizabeth Truelove. Nine children were born to the couple. Only four survived beyond their first year. The five deceased infants are buried beside their parents at Concord Baptist Church in Clermont. My mother was the third child and the oldest survivor. Thanie died in 1919 and Daddy Lee remarried to Mrs. Anna (Amos) Lewis in Calhoun, Georgia.
