Mr. E. E. Lewis.

Mr. Edward Earle Lewis was born October 29th, 1849. He was a son of Dr. John W. Lewis, a pioneer and extensive iron master of this county, a Baptist clergyman gratefully remembered by many of our best churches, superintendent of the W. & A. railroad and C. S. senator from Georgia, and of his wife Maria, daughter of Captain and Hon. Samuel Earle, of South Carolina, a gallant and meritorious officer of the regular continental army of the revolution, and a prominent and patriotic statesman of the early days of the republic. A ward of the late Gov. J. E. Brown, he prosecuted his studies first at Penn Lucy Institute, Baltimore, under Col. Richard Malcolm Johnston, and completed them at the University of Georgia, at Athens. Fixing his residence near Adairsville, he was engaged several years in the cultivation of clover and later removed to the vicinity of Cartersville. He next entered into the service of the Pullman Car Company and up to the last fortnight of his life filled efficiently a position in the offices of the Southern Railroad and Steamship Association. He was twice married, his first wife dying in this city, leaving him two daughters, one of whom is married; the last wife survives him, without children.

A Friend.
