Jane E. Pierce-Lewis was born in Frederick County Maryland on 14 Feb 1835. She married: Isaac W. Lewis, farmer, Section 34; Post Office Atalissa, Muscatine County Iowa; owns 250 acres of land, valued at $50 an acre; born May 5, 1834, in Columbiana County, Ohio; came with his father, Wm. Lewis, to this county in June, 1846, who died October 2, 1877. He married Jane Pierce 12 June 1856; they had four children - Henry F., born March 16, 1857; Joseph E., born May 19, 1859; Inez V., born May 14, 1863; Lottie E., born November 9, 1870. Cumberland Presbyterian; Democrat. The 1880 census lists a fifth child Earl that was not mentioned in the above bio. The last census I have found for Jane and Isaac is the 1910; they are in their mid 70's living in Wapsinonoc, Muscatine County, Iowa. Jane died on 22 Jul 1914 in Wapsinonoc, IA. She is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery in West Liberty, Wapsinonoc in Muscatine Co, IA.

Source: History of Muscatine County Iowa, Volume II, Biographical, 1911, page 766:

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.
