An autobiography of Lewis found in a trunk belonging to Ola Pyles (Lewis's
grandaughter through Abner Pyles).
"Lewis Pyles was born in the state of South Carolina, Laurens District, 22nd
of August, A.D. 1800. My Father's given name was Reuben. My Mother's maiden name
was Essy Rogester [sic]. My parents were of Welch descent, born and raised in
Virginia. I am the youngest of fifteen that my mother bore, five of which soon
died before my recollection. Five sisters, four bro [sic], and myself lived to
raise large familys [sic] all of whome [sic] are now gone I hope to that upper
and better world. My mother died about the year 1812 or 14. My father lived to
100 years of age or upwards and died between the year 1835 or 40. My mother was
Baptist in faith. My father a ridgid Calvinist. After the death of my mother, I
was turned loose upon the world and left pretty much to my own inclinations. My
father having married the second time and but little attention paid to me except
by my sister Polly who was as a mother to me. The most of my education was
received at Kinsbrough Academy, Laurance [sic] Dist. S.C. Made three different
trips to Alabama and Missip [sic] in my youthful days. Becoming a little more
settled in mind, turned my attention to farming. Lived three years a batchelor
[sic] life at the end of which time bought me a home in Abbeville District.
Marryed [sic] Catherine Wiatt Perrin 26 of March 1826. Remained in Abbeville
untill Jan 1st 1833. Moved and settled in Tallas(? perhaps an abbreviation for Talledega) county [now Calhoun county] before the removal of the Indians at
which time there were but few whites in the country, little or no morality in the country. Spent the most of my time in wickedness thinking but little of a
future state. During that time my companion died which had but little affect on my hardened impenitant heart. Married my second wife in 40 yet remained a hard
hearted and impenitant mortal untill it pleased God to deprive me of my firstborn son [assuming he means William Reuben, his son by Catherine, who died
in 1846] which occasioned much reflection and anxiety. Found no peice [sic] or comfort untill about the last of Aug or first of Sept. I arose from my bed
before daylight in Prayer to God at which time I found peace through merits of a crusifiyed [sic] Savior and was baptised by Elder Talyer in Sept 1846. And
thanks be to God have never repented of that act to this day. I have often had my -?-, my hopes and fears endeavored to do some good for my, the Master's cause
and am sorry that I have done no more or have given of my means to build of his kingdom. I was the founder of the Boiling Spring Association which has grown to
be a respectable and influential body of which I was Clerk for several years.
This looks of egotism but hoping it may be a satisfaction to my children and pen it down. Should my children think proper to have any religious exersise [sic]
after my death it is my desire that they secure Bro. Milton Carter to preform that last solemn act and that he take for his text the 4 verse in the 23 Psalm.
Though I walk throught the vally of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for thoug[sic] are with me thy rod and they staff they comefort me."
