Rev. Bayles was an 1858 graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary.
He was ordained in NYC in 1862. By 1864 he was officiating pastor at the 84th st. Presbyterian church in San Francisco and had made at least one 3 month trip to Honolulu, Hawaii (then the Sandwich Islands) on the ship "Samet". He was unmarried at the time of his death in August 1864.
I have only recently (August 2019) found a copy of an in MEMORIAM for "The Late Rev. Lewis C. Bayles" printed in the New York Observer of Thursday October 27, 1864. One statement stands out," that his many friends in San Francisco performed for him the last solemn duties, and tenderly laying him to rest by the shores of the calm Pacific to await the resurrection of the just." Additionally, I located another original log book of the California, San Francisco area funeral home records, 1835-1979, image 83 of 300 " That clearly reads Lewis (Louis C. Bayless) being "shipped" by N. Gray & Co. Funeral Records of San Francisco. Ahaaa for the poetic news paper writers.
