From the New Albany Ledger, February 18, 1861:
Lewis Hollis, Esq., died yesterday at his residence in Mooresville, Floyd County, suddenly, of paralysis. In the morning, he was in his usual health, but was attacked about 9 o'clock and died in a few minutes. Mr. Hollis was in the 69th year of his age, and had been a resident of this county for thirty-five years. He was a native of Kentucky, and during the late war with Great Britain was a volunteer in the Kentucky regiment under the command of Col. R. M. Johnson, with the rank of First Lieutenant, and fought at the Battle of the Thames, and was also at Tippecanoe. After the close of the war he removed to this county. He has filled several offices of trust in the township in which he resided and also in the county. He was a strict Whig partizan, yet so upright was his character that he never failed to commend the suffrages of his neighbors, though largely opposed to him in political sentiments. He leaves a spotless name, was an honest man, and died a Christian.
