Description: Jack: My great-grandfather, John Lee, had the first trading post at Tuba City….. And his son and family lived at Tuba City. My father and my Uncle Joe Lee left Tuba City in 1904, and went to the San Juan River. That was when the government bought and made a reservation from all those farmers and Mormons that was at Tuba City. My dad was the last one, they locked him in. They locked his fence and they said, "You either get out, or we're gonna lock the fence." So he danged near starved to death, and finally he left over there in, I think it was 1906.
