On the 12th of June, 1856, Mr. Lewis was united in marriage to Miss Jane Elizabeth Peirce, a native of Maryland and a daughter of Isaiah and Charlotte ( Smith ) Pierce, farming people of Maryland, who came to Cedar county, Iowa, in 1855.
Her father followed farming there until his death. Mrs. Pierce passed away in Muscatine county and both are buried in Pedee cemetery, Cedar county, Iowa. Five children have blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis : Henry F., who is the owner of a valuable farm in Cedar county ; Joseph Earl, a prominent real-estate man of Kentfield, Marin county, California ; Ernest, deceased ; Inez, the wife of Dr. L. F. Woodruff of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ; and Lottie, now Mrs. Isaac Filson, also of Cedar Rapids. Ruby I., a daughter of Henry F. Lewis, is a young lady of unusual educational qualifications, and on November 8, 1910, was elected superintendent of schools in Cedar county. She is a democrat but is so popular in that county that she easily overcame a republican majority of three hundred and is now serving in an office for which she is eminently qualified.
