CITY CIVIL WAR VETERAN DIES
Sole County Survivor, W.M. Lewis, Taken.
Kanawha county will not be represented at any more conventions of the Grand Army of the Republic, for William M. Lewis, 92, the county's last Civil war veteran, is dead. Mr. Lewis died at 6 p.m. Friday at the home of a son, E.L. Lewis of 1334 Madison street, of old age complications. He had been fined to bed for the last several weeks. Until four years ago, when stricken ill, Mr. Lewis took an active part in affairs of the Grand Army of the Republic. Every year he dug his Civil war uniform out of a clothes closet and went to the conventions. He was widely known in the country for his activities in the organization. Mr. Lewis was born March 15, 1817, in Jackson county, to the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Lewis. His father owned and operated a large farm. When he reached the age of 18 he joined the Union forces fighting in the Civil War, being assigned to company K, seventh West Virginia infantry. But he became ill a few weeks later and was never an active participant in any major Civil war battle. Returning to Jackson county after the war, he purchased a farm. In 1872 he was married to Miss Florence Buckal-w of Jackson county. Nearly 40 years ago they moved to Charleston, where Mr. Lewis was employed by the Matthews Lumber and Manufacturing company. He was employed by the firm more than a score of years, retiring because of ill health. His wife died several years ago. Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. at Shepherd's chapel M.E. church. Rev. Hobson D. Fisher, assisted by Rev. Willard Carney, will officiate and burial will follow in Emma cemetery, with the Noble Long mortuary in charge. The body will lie in state at the church an hour before funeral time.
