Obituary— J. H. Lewis died at his home on lower Nowood on Monday morning and was buried here in the M. E. cemetery at three o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Lewis had been very ill for some time and, though death was expected, it came as a great shock to his many friends. All of his children and grandchildren spent the last few sad days with him and were present at his death. J. H. Lewis was born in Fairmont, Missouri, in 1856 and came to the Big Horn Basin in 1894, where he was well known, and is mourned by hosts of sincere friends. Rev. Glover delivered a very eloquent sermon and the M. E. choir sang several beautiful hymns. Mr. Lewis leaves his wife, his father, one sister and eleven children. Five children, who are married, are Mrs. Bert Allen, Mrs. Ernest Allen and Mrs. Roland Hankins of Hyattville, and Mrs. Sam Bryant and William Lewis of Tensleep. The children remaining at home are three sons. Pearl, Leone and Cicero, and three daughters, Alice, Hazel and Frances.
