William L. LEE
"The Union Cemetery between Fort Edward and Sandy Hill (now Hudson Falls) contains a monument with the following inscription: "Here lies the remains of William Lee, who died May 28, 1857, aged thirty-six years, at Honolulu, Sandwich Islands, where he had resided over ten years as Chancellor and Chief Justice of the Owayheen Kingdom.'" The history of Mr. Lee's life is quite romantic. Starting from Sandy Hill, after being partly educated at a military school in Vermont, he entered the Albany Law School. Soon after he drifted to New York and entered a lawyer’s office as "factotum." Soon tiring of such a life he, in company with a friend, concluded to start for Oregon and enter upon the practice of civil engineering. The vessel upon which he sailed was compelled after a series of mishaps to put in at the Sandwich Islands for provisions. The King of the Islands was then waging war with one of his neighbors and desiring assistance, other than that guaranteed by his native counsellors, sent a messenger to the vessel to inquire if there was an educated man from the States on board; and in reply to such inquiry Mr. Lee returned with the messenger. After being suitably arrayed he was con' ducted into the presence of the King. That person signified to him his desire to have his assistance in conquering his rebellious neighbors. After the lapse of several days, Mr. Lee reported several plans, which so delighted the King that he requested him to remain, and offered him a prominent position under him.— Mr. Lee, however, refused to remain unless his companion could be likewise recognised. After considerable negotiation, arrangements were effected whereby both consented to remain. In less than three months Mr. Lee was promoted to the position of Chancellor, and Chief Justice. After he had been there about two years he signified his desire to the young lady of whom he had become affianced before he left Sandy Hill, that she should put in an appearance at Honolulu. She immediately proceeded to India (?) despite the protestations of her relatives and friends who conceived her to be catering to the delicate tastes of some fastidious authropophagite (?). Upon her arrival in the harbor of Honolulu she was married to Mr. Lee by an Episcopal clergyman. At the husband's death she returned home with his body. She then took up her residence in New York City where she is now residing as the wife of Prof. E. L. Youmans, of the Popular Science Monthly, with whom it will be remembered, King Kalahaua lunched during his stay in New York." (Article dated, "Ft. Edward, Jan. 18, 1875," from the Troy Press.)
(Note—Mr. Faxon Bishop stated that Lee was a lawyer and a graduate of Harvard College. This article indicates otherwise and that he was a civil engineer. See Mr. Richards article which follows and explains these contradictory statements.)
"William Little Lee, son of Stephen and Mary (Little) Lee; born Sandy Hill, N. Y., February 8, 1821; died Honolulu, May 28,1857; A.B. andM.CJE.; Norwich University 1842; conducted military school Portsmouth, Va., 184243; Harvard Law School 1843-44; lawyer at Troy, N. Y., 1844-46. Being threatened with consumption he sailed for Oregon from Newburyport on the brig "Henry." After a tempestuous voyage of about eight months, the vessel arrived at Honolulu, October 12, 1846. This was a critical period in the affairs of the young nation and the Government was engaged in a controversy with some of the foreign residents, which had embroiled nearly the whole community and menaced its very existence. The matter in dispute was referred to Mr. Lee, who settled the question so wisely that the King offered him the position of Presiding Judge. In time he became Chief Justice, Chan­cellor and Privy Counsellor to the King. He framed a revised constitution of the Kingdom and drew up its civil and criminal codes. Later he persuaded the King and Chiefs to give one-third of their land to the common people, and was appointed president of the committee to carry out the provisions of a new land law which he had drawn up. In 1855, he was Minister Plenipotentiary and Envoy Extraordinary to the United States to negotiate a reciprocity treaty. His health was always delicate and was undermined by attendance upon natives during an epidemic of small pox. He died May 28,1857. He was stated to be one of the ablest lawyers of his time and did much toward civilizing the inhabitants of the Hawaiian Islands. He married March 11, 1848, Miss Catherine E. Newton of Albany, N. Y., who in later life married for a second husband, Edward L. Youmans, Editor of the Popular Science Monthly. (Per Frederick, B. Richards of Glens Falls, a descendant of William L. Lee.)
Mr. Richards also states that Charles R. Bishop accompanied William Lee to Honolulu, where he married a princess of the royal family; became a man of great wealth, and died as president of the Bank of California in San Francisco at the age of ninety years. Just south of where the High Point tavern used to stand on the Lake GeorgeWarrensburgh state road are now the remains of a chimney which mark a former house generally understood as having been the birthplace of Charles R. Bishop.
I add one more anecdote to this interesting story and as told me by the late Judge Erskine C. Rogers of Hudson Falls: "It was customary, in the days when Mr. Lee died, to embalm a body for shipment by sea in a hogshead of rum. Mr. Lee was so returned to Sandy Hill (now Hudson Falls) for burial. When the cask was opened he had turned so black that some doubt was expressed by his acquaintances as to the correct identity of the body. Judge Rogers said that his grandmother identified Lee by a mole on his neck. Judge Rogers' daughter had another version of the story but we will not go into that right now. Still another was that while the cask was enroute, the sailors drew off and drank the rum, the lack of which prevented good preservation
