moved to Newark, Ohio, with his parents, Francis Lee and Mary Harwood, where he spent the greater part of his childhood;
his opportunities of attending school were very limited; he worked on a farm in the summer and attended the country
school in the winter. At the age of 12 years, he was apprenticed to the Hon. William D. Morgan, publisher of the
Newark Advocate, to learn printing. In 1865, after a short residence at Columbus, Ohio, he came to Springfield
in search of employment, which he found in the Daily News. He was married, in 1868, to Miss Anna M. Hartstone.
