The Mountain Echo, Yellville, Arkansas, November 26, 1915.

"Uncle" Henderson Fee

Death has again entered this community and kissed down forever the eyelids of one of our oldest, noblest, and best citizens. On Monday night about 12 o'clock "Uncle Henderson" Fee who lived about one mile west of town, died, ad Tuesday morning as the news spread from lip to lip, that "Uncle Henderson" was dead a sense of sadness seemed to settle over the town, as everyone loved him because he was a GOOD man. His death was not unexpected as he had been in very poor health and very feeble for the past three or four years, not being able to be downtown. He was born March 27th, 1820, in Hardin County, KY., and had he lived until March 17th next, he would have been 96 years old. He removed to this county when quite a young man, and in 1862 he was elected County Clerk and served for four consecutive terms. In 1882 he was elected County judge which office he held for four years. He is survived by 7 children, his wife having preceded him to the grave several years ago. He was buried Tuesday evening in the family graveyard near his home in the presence of a large number of sorrowing relatives and friends, with Masonic honors of which fraternity he had long been a consistent member. A suitable obituary will appear next week.
