James Leon Lewis was born February 28, 1863 in Warren county,
Pennsylvania; he moved with his parents to Buffalo county,
Nebraska, at the age of 16. In the spring of 1890, he moved to
Frontier county on the farm where he still resided until the

living a constant christian life.
Besides his immediate family he also leaves one brother and
three sisters, he being the oldest and first to depart of a
family of five.
