Lewis is a direct descendant of Georg Michael (1723-1807) and Anna Margretha (1719-1795) MUMPER. The vast majority of Mumpers, listed here at FindAGrave and otherwise residing in the United States, consider Georg Michael to be the common patriarch.

He was the son of Mary Catherine Brough Schultz and Samuel Weaver Mumper, and was the brother of:

William Mumper, 1840-1909
Levi Mumper, 1843-1916
Lizzie Mumper, 1845-unknown
John S. Mumper, 1847-1924
Henry Mumper, 1848-1911, and
Mary Mumper, 1851-unknown.

OBIT:

Louis Mumper, Pioneer and Liberty County Farmer from Chester, MT., Answers Last Call

Sunday, the dead body of Louis [Lewis] Mumper, aged pioneer of this section, was found at his home about two miles south of town [Shelby Junction] by Emmet Martell who had gone there to see him about certain business affairs. Coroner George Ainley was called immediately and the body was brought to Chester. Death presumably was caused by heart attack while he was asleep.

Louis [Lewis] Mumper was born in York Springs, Pennsylvanila, in 1850, but further than this, very little is known about his life. He came to Fort Benton in 1867 and since that time has been in northern and central Montana. He freighted from Fort Benton several years before he began ranching, and claimed the distinction of being the first man to swim a horse across the Missouri river at that point. In later years he has been engaged in stock raising and farming.

The only living re1ative known is Ed Mumper. [Possibly his nephew, Edgar.]

Funeral services were held here Tuesday at 12:30.
Interment was made in the local cemetery.

OCCUPATION: Farmer.
