OCTOROON IS LEE
. WIDOW, SHESAYS!
Mrs. Lucinda Anderson Claims!
Estate of Late Chicago
fhWpn. Ane. 19. A woman who
gives the came of Mrs. Lucinda An
derson appeared before Judge Dan
kowskl In the probate court yesterday
afternoon and filed a claim to the es
tate of the late William H. Le. the
Chicago publisher whose past life Is a
mystery and who was supposed to
have died without heirs. Mrs. Ander
son claims to be Lee"s widow.
The petition simply sets forth that j
Mrs. Luclnda Anderson Is the widow I

Corner" at Yorkvllle, Mich., a village
near Benton Harbor, she said, until he
disappeared 30 years ago.
Since then she had never heard of
him until her daughter, Mrs. Burdine,
began an investigation following the
publisher's death when, she told the
Judge, she became aware that he had
used the name of Lee and posed as a
