H. Lee Roan

b. 27 February 1868, d. 18 February 1899
  • H. Lee Roan was born on 27 February 1868 in Roans Prairie, Grimes County, Texas.
  • John Peteet Roan and Mary Frances Hardy appeared in the US federal census of 1 June 1870 in Anderson PO, Grimes County, Texas. Other members of the household included H. Lee Roan, Margaret Virginia Roan, Ida Roan, Lucy Ann Roan, John Roan and Martha Roan. Also in the household were children John (age 7) and Martha (4).
  • He married Adele Chinski in 1893.
  • H. Lee Roan died on 18 February 1899 at age 30 in Grimes County, Texas.
  • His wife Adele Chinski became a widow at his death.
  • He was interred at Oakland Cemetery, Navasota, Grimes County, Texas.
  • The following appeared on 20 February 1899 in The Daily Examiner: The funeral of H. Lee Roan, whose sudden death was chronicled in Saturday's EXAMINER, took place from his late home in the First Ward at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon; and the long cortege of sorrowful friends who paid this last mark of respect to the departed citizen, was but a small testimonial of the lofty regard in which his memory is held.
         Deceased was a member of the honored Roan family of this old county, and was born at the old homestead, on Roans Prairie, on February 27, 1868. He was raised and educated there and in the schools of Navasota; since which time he has been actively identified with the commerce of this city and county, having spent his last years in the drug business here, as a member of the firm of H. W. Kilpatrick & Co.
         In 1893 he married Miss Dellie Chinski of this city, who, with a little son, mourn the loss of a considerate husband and father - whose life boat has been far too early stranded in the gulf of Time. In their severe loss they will have the full sympathy of a large number of steadfast friends, business associates and even passing acquaintances, who had learned to appreciate the sincere, gentlemanly friendship of the one whose remains now lie in the City Cemetery, and whose soul is on high, at peace with man and God.
