Lewis Airgood worked as a potter most of his life. It appears he was an apprentice in the 1850 Census in Goshen, Indiana at the age of 13. He was in Cromwell, Noble Co., Indiana for the 1870 and 1880 census working as a potter. He is in Cromwell in 1900 but is now working at the sawmill with Moore relatives. Other Airgood relatives lived around Cromwell. By 1910 he had moved to South Bend and was still working; he was a flag man for the railroad.

The cleaned tombstone shows more clearly the date of little Samantha's death. An Airgood genealogy written in 2004 also gives this death date. We will probably never know any more about little Samantha's short life and death.
