Born: Oct. 1872 in Pennsylvania (PA), probably in or near Philadelphia Died: 1941 in Mohawk, Herkimer County, NY. He was married to Luna Clemens. He is buried at Mohawk Cemetery in Mohawk, Herkimer County, NY. He is listed in the 1900 Census for Philadelphia, Penn. at the age of 28, with these family members in his household: Lewis age 28 Luna age 27 Edward age 5 born Dec. 1895 Arleigh age 3 born May 1897 His occupation in 1900 is listed as "Brakeman, Pennsylvania Railroad". He is listed in the 1933 telephone directory for Herkimer/Mohawk, NY. His telephone number was "370-R". I believe this means that he was on a "party line". At that time, private lines were quite rare. He is mentioned in the autobiography of Bessie Ann Dutcher. He was her uncle. Both of his parents were born in Pennsylvania. I have no information about either of them as of July 2014. NOTE: The spelling of his name on his gravestone is "Lewis", not "Louis". -JAS- Genealogy HOME Search Tool
