Son of Fielding & Mary (Gambill) Lewis.

Fielding Lewis, Sept. 27, 1866 Aged 55 years, 3 months, 5 days Fielding Lewis was one of the earliest settlers in this neighborhood. It is not known when he reached Oregon but probably in 1848. James P. Lewis, supposedly the son of this man, held a Donation Claim next west of the Jesse Barr Claim where these graves lie. A grandson of Fielding Lewis (name probably John), was County Treasurer of Multnomah County for thirty-four years. These graves are neatly tended and cared for by members of the Lewis family now living in Portland [in 1940].

You were a true Oregon pioneer. Members of your family went on to raise children of their own in the Pacific Northwest and they have you to thank. Now, Sarah's offspring will know where her father is interred and what happened to her mother. Rest in Peace...(Read more)
