  • Anecdote: in Jun 1910, at The Olympus, Olympia, Thurston County, WashingtonG, Lee Clare Lewis (18 years old) 1910 Olympia High School Yearbook.
  • Anecdote: between 17 Jun 1917 and 30 Jul 1918, Lee Clare Lewis and Haldora Hjalmfridur Sumarlidason Lee and Dora were only married for a short period of time. Just two months after their marriage he was inducted into the U.S. Army and ordered to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for training. He had to bid farewell to his new bride. There he received his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. Eleven months after their marriage, after further training and transiting the Atlantic ocean, Lee landed in France. Just two months and five days after arriving in France, his life and their marriage of slightly more than a year were abruptly ended. She went on to become a highly regarded college professor, author and held several important positions in both State and Federal education departments. She never remarried.9
  • Other: on Thursday, 29 Aug 1918, Lee Clare Lewis on a "World War I Casualties of American Army Overseas" "Late List" Lee is reported as having died of wounds reported on this date.14
  • Bio: at age 27, on Wednesday, 16 Apr 1919, "Over, fellows, the Germans. See, they are beaten." Lee C. Lewis.

    “The company did advance, but it lost the most valiant soldier a company could boast of. He was twice wounded, once while rushing forward, and again before he could be taken off the field.
    There are brave hearts, but it's a brave heart, indeed, that can face a withering fire and charge with what's left of a company whose command has twice been killed or wounded.”

    Excerpted from: The Olympia Daily Recorder, Olympia, WA 16 Apr 1919. A remarkable first-hand account of the death of Lee Clare Lewis during battle.

    Lee Lewis came from a close-knit family. His father, Fredrick W. Lewis, had attended college in Michigan in the early 1880s at Hillsdale College. Later he attended Michigan Teacher’s Institute. His father later became a school teacher and moved with his family to the frontier in Kansas in 1885. Following the death of his father, Glode D. Lewis, in 1901, Fred W. Lewis moved his family from Kansas to Washington State in 1903. There Fred became active in the politically progressive young Grange movement. Within a short time he made a name for himself and assumed the powerful position of Secretary of the Grange for Washington State. Fred held that position until his death in 1937.

    Lee received a good education and learned the valuable lessons of hard labor. He graduated from the Olympia High School and subsequently studied and graduated from the Washington State College in Pullman, WA in June 1916. Then as he was preparing to embark on his life as an adult, he was swept into the war in Europe which was later dubbed, The Great War or The War to End All Wars. On 15 May 1917 he joined the U.S. Army to fulfill his patriotic duties.

    One year later, on 25 May 1918 he arrived in France with the 4th Division. On 30 July 1918, after his company commander and 2nd in command had been both killed in action, he took up the mantle and led his troops into battle. He died that same day from a shell that exploded. The young Lieutenant was posthumously promoted to Captain.

    Lee had married his college sweetheart, Dora Sumarlidason, on 17 June 1917. They both knew that he would soon be departing for the war. They spent a few weeks together and on 3 September 1917 he left his bride behind and travelled to Fort Leavenworth to begin his military training.

    By all accounts Lee was a conscientious and hardworking individual. He had the luxury of a loving family and loving wife. His ancestors had fought in every major American battle from the Revolutionary War on down to the conflict that ended his life. Clearly there was a strong sense of community and a sincere dedication to helping his fellow man.

    Losing his life at such a young age, 26, cut short a most promising and hopeful future. One can only speculate on the great things that he may have been able to accomplish.

    The words he spoke to his comrades to urge them forward turned out to be prophetic. The War to End All Wars ended on 11 November 1918, just 3 months and 12 days after Lee C. Lewis gave his life.15

Memorable Moments & Stories

  • Anecdote: on Thursday, 19 Apr 1906, at Mount Pleasant, Isabella County, MichiganG, Aletha Maize Mercer and Rose May Robison (23 years old) made the arduous journey from Mount Pleasant, MI to join Otto in Drain, OR. Rose and her infant daughter, Aletha, moved West in April 1906 to reunite with Otto. They traveled by train from Mount Pleasant, Ohio to Sacramento, California, a distance of nearly 2,500 miles. They arrived in Sacramento on the day after the great earthquake of 1906 in San Francisco.

    Afterwards, Rose spoke of the utter confusion in Sacramento. People were trying to get trains to the East. Rose and Aletha did not have any trouble finding a train north to Drain, Oregon. Rose and Aletha arrived in Drain two days later on 21 Apr 1906 where just nine days later, Aletha would celebrate her 1st birthday.

    Meanwhile, Otto had found a place to live in a hotel in Drain, Oregon. The small family lived together in the hotel for nearly a year. Subsequently they lived in various places in Oregon and finally moved to Hillsboro.

    Six years later in 1912, Otto found work at a mill in Maytown, Washington.The family moved once again. In 1935, after the mill at Maytown burned, they moved once more back to Oregon. This time they settled in Medford. They returned to Washington in 1944 and resided in South Tumwater.9

Vital Statistics

Obituary & Other Vital Info

Alias(es)

  • Name-Variation: At her birth, she was named "Elsie Dora." Her first name, Elsie, was in honor of her father's brother, Lee Clare Lewis. He was a war hero and a very popular young man in the community. His family and friends frequently referred to him by his nickname (which was comprised of his initials), "LC." Thus Elsie was named after her Uncle Lee Clare using his nickname. Her middle name came from Lee Clare's wife, Dora. Lee Clare's widow's birth name was Haldora Hjalmfridur Sumarlidason. Her Icelandic name was very difficult for most Americans to pronounce therefore she used her nickname, Dora. So, technically Elsie's first name is the phoenetic nickname for her Uncle and her middle name is the nickname for her Aunt. Although her Uncle, Lee Clare Lewis, died nearly 6½ years before she was born, her Aunt, Dora (née Sumarlidason) Lewis was a continual positive influence in Elsie's life for the remainder of Dora's life.1
  • Nick-Name: her nickname was "Doa" her little sister, as a young child, could not pronounce Elsie Dora so she resorted to this shortened version and it stuck for much of Elsie's childhood.1
  • Name-Variation: as of Thursday, 19 Sep 1929, she used the surname of Brostrom. She continued to use the surname Brostrom until she was married on 6 Jun 1943.1
  • Name-Married: on Sunday, 6 Jun 1943, her married name became Mrs. Wagner (née Lewis).

  • Harriet Elizabeth Rice was the daughter of: Calvin Rice and Electa Allen.3
  • An Obituary for Harriet Elizabeth Rice appeared on Thursday, 3 Feb 1887, Obituary
    The wife of Abram Mercer, of Liberty, died Monday morning at 8 o'clock. She had been ill some time but not thought dangerous. On the monring mentioned she was sitting up in bed and had called for a cup of coffee, and while being waited on, suddenly expired. The funeral occurred from the Mercer church Tuesday.

    Wood County Sentinel, 3 Feb 1887.8
  • Her obituary appeared on Thursday, 10 Feb 1887, in The Wood County Sentinel, Wood County, OhioG, and read:
    Obituary
    Mermill, February 1. - We laid away in the silent grave the lifeless body of another of Wood county's pioneers, Mrs Harriet Mercer, in her 66th year. She was a daughter of Dr C. Rice, who will be remember by the oldest settlers of this county as the doctor who died from a scratch on a finger received while he was examining the lifeless body of Mr Harris.

    Deceased was the faithful, kind wife of Abram Mercer for 46 years, and now as he goes on down the hillside of life he will miss her everywhere. Mrs Mercer, or as she was more familiarly called, Aunt Harriet, was a kind, loving friend and for several years had been afflicted with slow consumption. This winter her husband was very sick for some weeks, which bore heavily upon her, and on the 26th of January, she took a chill and gradually failed until the morning of the 31st, when upon being carefully raised to take a sup of coffee, her hands fell down and she said, "I am almost gone - lay me down," and without a struggle she passed away, sweetly and peacefully.

    She was the mother of James Mercer, Mrs C. Lashuway, Charles A., Porterfield, Marion and Clinton B. Mercer, and Mrs I McIntyre, who deeply mourn the loss of a good mother.

    Aunt Harriet united with the Disciple Church at this place upon its first organization many years ago, and was an earnest, faithful member until her death, and as such will be greatly missed. May the thoughts and hope of that sweet bye and bye be a consolation to all of her dear friends.

    The funeral services were conducted by Brother Richardson of the Methodist order, from Toledo, who preached a very excellent sermon and gave a consolation, taking for his test, Isaiah, 3-10. R.M.M.
