Dr. Lewis

The death of Dr. Lewis, who has been ill about seven months, took place last Friday morning at the residence of Ephraim Vastbinder. The funeral was held at Luther's school-house and attended by hundreds of friends and relatives. The pall bearers were chosen from among the old settlers, Dr. Lewis having been about forty years a resident of the county and 77 years of age. The sermon was preached by Rev. J. H. Crooker, of Laporte, after which a very long procession followed the body to its last resting place.
