Amberson G. Lewis family - Huntington & Wabash Cos., Indiana

Amberson G. LEWIS and family are enumerated in the 1910 census of Dallas Twp., Huntington Co., IN and the 1920 census of Wabash, Wabash Co., IN. Amberson was Eileen's maternal great-granduncle, the son of Jacob and Marietta (COOK) LEWIS.

Amberson was a factory worker in both census records, in the 1920 census he was listed as a machinist. Wife Mona was the mother of two children in1910, both living, and they had been married for 7 years. I have their marriage in my database as 1922, but I imagine that is a typographical error and it should be 1902. Right now, I have no source for the marriage date. Both Mona and Amberson's parents are listed as being born in Indiana, although in the 1920 census, Amberson stated that his father was born in the 'United States'.

In the 1920 census, son Paul was no longer a student, but had gone to work in a factory at age 16. His brother, Kenneth, was still a student.

Amberson G. LEWIS b. October 1879 Huntington Co., IN., d. November 9, 1937 Hamilton Co., IN., m. 1902 in Huntington Co., IN to Mona Belle MILLER. Mona b. December 2, 1882 Huntington Co., IN, d. August 24, 1959 Miami Co., IN.
