Happy Birthday, Miss Ruby



A HISTORY
OF
LEE COUNTY
TEXAS
VOL. II

THIS BOOK IS DEDICATED
BY
LEE COUNTY HISTORICAL COMMISSION
TO

MRS. RUBY NETTLES VANCE
LIFE LONG RESIDENT OF LEXINGTON
A MEMBER OF THE COMMISSION SINCE 1965


Her deep love for preserving history has been her motivation for many years to research and chronicle the histories of Lee County families and events and to share this knowledge through the pages of Lee County publications.

She was instrumental in gathering information for Volume I of the History of Lee County and she has been one of the driving forces in insisting that this continuation of the History be completed.

Researchers will be eternally thankful to Mrs. Vance and to her fellow historian, Mrs. Jan Conn, for their diligent work in compiling a record of every cemetery in Lee County -- listing the wording on many of the grave stones and the location of each grave in all of these cemeteries.

Thank you, Miss Ruby
01 April 1910 ~ 14 April 2003
