This December 2015 issue concludes the history of the Lee Line.  These 4 issues were possible primarily thanks to Capt. William Tippitt whose lengthy research using newspaper accounts from multiple decades past and oral accounts he heard from rivermen who new my Lee ancestors.   His history was complied in the early 1970’s and thankfully was microfilmed with copies sent to the Tennessee State Library at Nashville, Louisiana State University at Baton Rogue Louisiana as well as several other libraries.  David Tschiggfrie editor of the S&D Reflector gracious granted me permission to use the above image as well as skillfully edited my four part submissions.
