Lewis Marion Thurston
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 23, 1804
Death: Oct. 13, 1895

Son of Robert Jenkins Thurston & Abigail Bogert. Lewis married Elizabeth Samuella Brewer on 19 April 1836. He was, in his early business life engaged as a broker in Wall Street.

Lewis moved to Huntington in 1836 where he purchased and operated a farm at Huntington Harbor. He was a member of the Huntington Board of Education and also he was an earnest worker in St. John's Episcopal Church acting as vestryman for thirty years from 1840 to 1870, and was especially active when the church was rebuilt. He was the proud owner of a rare portrait of George Washington that he received from the estate of his father-in-law, Cornelius I Bogert. Lewis had taken a fall backwards down the stairs of his home about 1891 from which shock he never fully recovered.

Lewis died at Huntington, Suffolk County, L. I. and was buried beside the grave of his wife, Elizabeth in the family plot in St. John's Episcopal Cemetery in Huntington, New York.
