H. C. LEWIS, a farmer of Brady's Bend township, Armstrong county, was born in Fairview township, Butler county, Pa., June 2, 1879, son of Richard Lewis and grandson of David R. Lewis.

David R. Lewis, who is the first of this family of whom anything definite is known, was born in Wales, and died in East Brady, Clarion county, Pennsylvania.

Richard Lewis, son of David R. Lewis, married Susan Guyer, and they now reside in Perry township, Armstrong county, Pennsylvania.

H. C. Lewis was brought up in Perry township, this county, and after his school days were over began farming. Later he went into the oil fields, and he now operates a farm of eighty-eight acres located one fourth of a mile southeast of Kaylor, in Brady's Bend township. Mr. Lewis is a stockholder in the Sugar Creek Telephone Company, and in addition to his other duties serves as school director, having held the office for five years; he was elected on the Republican ticket, and reelected for two years. He has always supported the candidates of that ticket.

In 1903, Mr. Lewis was married to Agnes Thomas, who was born in Armstrong county, daughter of Evan Thomas, of Perry township, and located on the present property, where his three children, Harry Russell, Ruth and Bessie, have been born.

Mr. Lewis belongs to the Knights of Pythias at Brady's Bend and the Odd Fellows of the same place, and has served both in several offices; he is also a member of the Kaylor Grange. While Mr. Lewis's interests are not confined to one line, he has sufficient energy and business acumen to prosecute them all successfully and acceptable, and is one of the leading men of his township.
