WWII soldier remembered by his surviving quadruplets through news clippings, photos
The Lee family album shows a photos of Charles and wife Mae Belle days after the birth of quadruplet boys in August 1944.
When his four boys were born on Aug. 27, 1944, Charles Lee joked with a newspaper reporter he would need a bigger farm to be able to feed his family, which had just exploded in size. The article provides at least one insight about the Murrayville man — that he had a sense of humor in the wake of his wife having quadruplets rather than the twins he had expected. “We would have probably grown up as farmers, if he lived,” said Bob Lee, as he and brother Eddy Lee stood at their father’s Lumpkin County grave last week.
