Daniel Lewis household - Huntington Co., IN

The Daniel LEWIS family was enumerated in the 1900 and 1910 census of Salamonie Twp., Huntington Co., IN. Daniel was Eileen's maternal 2nd-great granduncle, the son of Solomon and Margaret (RHINEHART) LEWIS.

Daniel's occupation was not given in the 1900 census, in fact, it was listed as "N.G.". In the 1910 census, his occupation was listed as "own income." In both census records, it was stated that he could not read, but could write. His wife, Alpha M., could both read and write. Daniel's parents were listed as both being born in Ohio, while Alpha's father was born in Ohio and her mother in Indiana.

In the 1900 census, their 14 year old daughter, Lena M. was listed with the family. She was attending school. By the 1910 census she was no longer living in the household. I do not yet have any record of a marriage for her.

Daniel LEWIS b. August 23, 1862 Huntington Co., IN., d. November 28, 1914 Huntington Co., IN., m. June 6, 1885 Huntington Co., IN to Alpha M. RICHARDSON. Alpha b. October 1865 Indiana, d. January 23, 1946 Indiana.
