(son of JOHN S. and MYRA LEWIS)- Continued

empaneled [sic] a jury of inquest with Otto Hohing as foreman, the hearing resulting in a verdict of ‘accidental death.’ The death of Thomas falls with distressing severity upon the father, who lost two grown sons about three years ago from cerebro spinal meningitis. He had bought the ‘Tunnel property,’ and was prepared to move to town on Monday, which sadly turned out to be the day of his son’s funeral. Whether he will yet leave his old home has not been determined. The Junior Order of U.A.M. turned out in large number.” [FMJ 10-8-1898]

“William Lewis died at his home in Eckhart Sunday, aged about 70 years.” [FMJ 5-30-1891]

Based on Scharf (p. 1493), he may have been a member of Mount Pleasant Lodge No. 3 in 1874. Mr. Lewis was born in Blaenavon, Monmouthsire, South Wales.

Young George was not listed in the 1870 Census, so we assume he was born sometime later. At most, he would be about 4 years of age at the time of his death.

We are confused about the birth and death dates of Miss Lowe. The lettering on the headstone, our only source of information, is extremely difficult to read. If Miss Lowe died in 1811, she would be the earliest burial on record in Percy Cemetery. However, the year 1811 is very early in the history of Frostburg and there were very few people in the community at that time. The next recorded burial in Percy Cemetery was 1839. It could be that we are simply reading the death date incorrectly. Or perhaps the headstone was erected at a later date as a memorial to Miss Lowe who had died considerably earlier.

One of the authors believes that this may be the headstone of Sarah Matilda LOHR. He interprets her death date as 1841 and her age at death as 42.
