There is a standard book of will abstracts for Bucks County that many large libraries have that covers 1870-1900. You can also get a copy of a will from the County Clerk. These tend to run fairly expensive; but it may be something you're willing to pay.

It would be useful to know of which church Lewis was a member of. Many of them at that time in Bucks were union churches, in which German Reformed (now UCC) and Lutheran congregations shared the same building. Historical church records are available from many sources. Some that I've used are the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Historical Center (Catholic); the Mormon Family History Centers (variety); and the Evangelical and Reformed Archives. I think that there's also a website for people looking into ancestral family with a Lutheran background.
