A family report of his admission is found on by gagranny and is as follows: The oral family story of John Lewis ( John Lewis was always called by his double name)is that he had gone to the post office for the mail. Upon his return to the home of his mother, he stated: "It's time for me to go back to the hospital." This was the Broughton Mental Hospital at Morganton, NC, Burke County. John Lewis had some mild mental disorder. He had been to this hospital on a previous occasion. It is not known how much time he had spent at this hospital, nor when his previous visit had been. It is not known his method of transportation to reach the hospital.The hospital records show that John Lewis was DOA on 31 January 1925. His is buried in the hospital cemetery at row 25, grave 35. His patient number at the hospital was 209344.

Help in identifying his former wife and any children will be appreciated.
