5153. Henry D. Lewis
OBITUARY: Thursday, April 14, 1898 Gazette and Farmers' Journal : 1846-1896, Fiftieth Anniversary
HENRY D. LEWIS. Another veteran of the war for the Union has been mustered on, gone on into that unknown country where "Just across the sunset border, In the old symmetric order, There shall meet one vast alignment, Our Grand Army of the Dead." Henry D. Lewis died at his home on North street, Baldwinsville, Friday, April 8, 1898, at 11:55 p.m., after the most intense suffering his illness having been of long duration.
Deceased was one of a family of seven, six sons and one daughter, children of George and Sally Bassett Lewis, and was born in West Amboy, Oswego county, N. Y., June 1, 1831. His father was one of the pioneers of that section, having moved from Otsego county to West Amboy when that region was a vast wilderness, their nearest neighbor being four miles distant. The son, Henry, received an education in the schools of his locality, and as a young man learned the carpenter and millwright trade.
He enlisted at Constantia in Company C, 101st regiment New York State Volunteers, and on the expiration of his term of enlistment again pursued his trade, being especially proficient as a millwright.
Mr. Lewis was married at Durhamville, Oneida county, July 2, 1864, to Mina E. Burnam, and their married lives were passed at Camden, Phoenix, and since 1877 they have resided here. While health permitted Mr. Lewis was actively engaged, but for the past nine years he has been an invalid with rheumatism and heart trouble. He was confined to the house for about four weeks prior to his death, suffering intensely and death came as a release from the ills of life.
A good citizen, quiet and unostentatious, Mr. Lewis leaves a record for honorable dealing and uprightness of which his family may be proud. Besides his wife he is survived by two sons, Edwin H. and Willard W. Lewis, and a daughter, Clara M. Lewis. Three brothers and the sister also survive him.
Funeral services were held at the house Monday at three p. m., conducted by Rev. Edward A. McMaster, pastor of the Presbyterian church, he using as his text the words found in I Cor., vii:29, "Brethren, the time is short." Members of the G. A. R. attended the funeral in a body. Interment was made in Riverview cemetery.
