In the death of Mr. John E. Lewis a short time ago, Polk county loses one of its pioneer farmers, he having been a resident of this vicinity for the past 77 years. Born in Wisconsin in 1843, he was brought across the plains to Oregon two years later, the family settling in the vicinity of what is now Lewisville, and after whom this place was named. After retiring from active farm live, “Uncle John”, as he was familiarly known, made his home in Airlie until his health failed and he went to live with his son, Alex Lewis near Albany. Obsequies over the remains were held at the Evangelical Church of which the deceased was a member, the Rev Ballantine officiating. Interment was made in the Lewisville cemetery [English cemetery]. The surviving children are two sons and two daughters, also three brothers and two sisters, all but one of whom are residents of this state.
