Maj. David Lewis
Maj. David W. Lewis, a Civil war veteran died yesterday at his home 38 Oak street, Hyde Park, aged 81 years. He made a notable record with the Ninth Vermont Regiment during the civil war.
He was born in Walpole and worked in a shoe store in Springfield before starting a store of his own in Brattleboro, Vt. When the war broke out he enlisted as a private, but was commissioned captain within a month. He fought in numerous battles, was wounded and was at one time a prisoner in the hands of the Confederates.
Of late he has been president of a company manufacturing building materials. He was taken ill at Ormond, Fla. in April.
