MCKEE, LETA LORENA, is a daughter of the late James Lemuel McKee and his wife, Mrs. Levina (Snodgrass) McKee, whose biographies appear elsewhere in this work.

Miss McKee was born on the home farm, March 7, 1879, and grew up under a careful mother's supervision, being early taught housekeeping and sewing. She attended school at New City, Ill., and was also given good opportunities for training the undoubted musical talent she possesses. Since her father's death, Miss McKee has been her mother's companion, and the two are inseparably united. She has always taken a pride in her beautiful needlework, while her fame as a cook extends beyond the confines of her township. While cultivating her mind, she has not forgotten to perfect herself in other ways, and is well trained in practical affairs.
