Lee Henry Musser, who is the son of John and Harriet (Snyder) Musser, the former pioneer of Steuben County and a veteran of the Civil War whose career is told on other pages, has spent his life in this county, and through many years of work at his trade has acquired the prosperity represented by one of the good farms of York Township.

He was born in York Township, December 17, 1878, and grew up at Metz, where he recieved his schooling and learned the trade of Mason. For 21 years he followed this trade with developing skill and increasing experience and success, and in 1918, largely from the procedes of his years of labor, he bought his present 120 acres in York Township. He is now giving all his time to farming and stock raising. Mr. Musser is a Republican in politics.

From Susan Musser Minch

Maude Teegardin was born on the 4th of July in 1882. She grew up on her parents farm in Ostego Township, Steuben County, Indiana. She was a big woman, big bone structure and close to 6 ft tall. She married at the age of 18, in 1900 to Lee Henry Musser, he was 21 yrs old. They lived near Metz, and Lee followed the trade of stone masonry work. He worked with his father and brother, Ray. In 1918, Lee and Maude purchased a 120 acre farm in York Township and began farming and stock raising. Later, they sold the farm and moved to Angola on Darling Street near Tri-State University. I remember this home in Angola, Maude had beautiful flowers everywhere, and the house was full of antique treasures. I am blessed to have a wonderful old sewing rocker from their home. Maude is buried beside her husband south of Metz, and she died on February 16, 1971, at the age of 62 in Westland, Michigan.
