      John Abel Lee was born in Stephens County Texas. He was a child survivor of a brutal Indian attack on his family on June 9, 1872. He married Starrett Annie Smith in Eastland County Texas. The two had several children.
      The following is an account of the Indian attack on his family:
      On June 9, with the help of Big Bow, White Horse attacked the homestead of Abel Lee (John Abel Lee's father) on the Clear Fork of the Brazos, about sixteen miles from Fort Griffin. Lee and his fourteen-year-old daughter Frances were fatally shot, his wife scalped and murdered, and the remaining three children (including John) carried into captivity. Soldiers trailed them, but the Kiowas escaped back to the reservation and held a scalp dance that went on for several nights. The Lee children remained captives for a few months before they were ransomed.
