"Lewis J. Meyer. Community pride is a powerful force for good at all times, and among our farmers it is evidenced by the expressed belief that the land which they and their neighbors are cultivating is as fertile and attractive as can be found in any other section. It is this commendable pride in the home acres and in the social life of the locality which operates to keep the boys on the farm, as opposed to the emigration to the cities, which has been so marked within the last ten years.
It was his belief in the possibilities of his own location that kept Lewis J. Meyer at home. Mr. Meyer was born on the farm in Highland township where he still lives, on May 1, 1880. John and Mary (Wiwi) Meyer were Mr. Meyer's parents, as well as the parents of the following children: Michael, Philip, Mary, Anna. ...
As a lad, Lewis J. Meyer attended the local school, at the same time receiving careful training in agricultural methods, which training aided him through life and enabled him to purchase the home place in 1912, the fields of which are devoted to general farming.
In 1910 Mr. Meyer married Katharine Hoffman, and the two became the parents of three children, Anthony, Leo, George. ...
The Catholic church at Cedar Grove has the steady support of Lewis Meyer and his brother Michael, and they exhibit those solid qualities at all times which are peculiar to Teuton blood, namely, thoroughness, industry and an intelligent interest in all questions vital to the public welfare." [1915 A. J. Reifel History of Franklin County IN pp. 1100-1101.]
