The Kansas City Journal 1909: Duke Lee Leaves Police Force to Join Wild West ShowD

Duke R Lee

Many thanks to author and researcher A.I. Little, who emailed me asking if the Duke Lee in this Kansas City article from 1909 is my grandfather. Indeed, it is! I knew he was married before he married my grandmother, Louise Gladstone, one of the Gladstone Sisters. And I knew the other history mentioned in the article, except for his being a cop. My mother confirmed that bit of info earlier today. News Items from The Kansas City Journal ~ Old News That's New to You from Vintage Kansas City.com
