Re: Obituary for Peter Lewis

In Reply to: Obituary for Peter Lewis by Cathy Champion of 857

I found more information which appears that it could be your I. L. "Pete" Lewis, though the month and year of birth in the census do not match that on the tombstone. However, either of these records could be wrong. I have seen more incorrect months and years in census records, though I have seen them on tombstones, also.

1900 Census, Missouri, Lawrence County, Aurora Township, City of Aurora, family 115:
Isaac Lewis Oct 1878-21 Yr. M-1 Mo. Oh. Oh. Miner
Lizzie Sep 1871-28 Yr. 2-1 Mo. Tn. Tn.
Leslie (male ) Aug 1897- 2 Yr. Mo. Mo. Mo.

I checked the Lawrence County Marriage records published for this time period but did not find a marriage record for Isaac or Pete Lewis and Lizzie.

However I did find what appears to be his remarriage record:

Lawrence County Missouri Marriage Records, Jan. 1904 - Mar. 1908, p. 24:
Lewis, P., Aurora, to Cary Joshlyn, Aurora, 16 Feb 1907, by Henry Musgrove, J. P., at Aurora, Book J, p. 435.

This would match with his death certificate which says he was married.

Your grandmother's date of birth would determine which woman was her mother.
