Hervey Lewis
Birth: Jan. 26, 1806
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 22, 1892
Michigan, USA

Hervey Lewis was the father of my great grandmother, Hannah Atlantic Lewis Tipton. His name on his gravestone is spelled "Hervey" although I often see it spelled "Hervy" so I will use the gravestone spelling. The gravestone also says he was born in January. Hervey died in Michigan at age 86 while visiting his daughter. He was hit by a train while walking. He was a pioneer in Jay County, Indiana and is buried in West Grove Cemetery. His story is well told in a Lewis-Grisell genealogy book.
