WEST CONCORD --- Sumner Lewis was found dead in bed Monday morning. Mr. Lewis had suffered for many months with a cancer on one side of his face and neck, which a surgical operation did not relieve. For a few days before his death, he had been growing worse though able to be about, and the only way he could get rest was by means of morphine. He was seen to move in bed after daylight on Monday, but about an hour later he was found dead. There was no evidence that he took an overdose of morphine. He leaves two sons. He was a brother to W. C. Lewis of St. Johnsbury.
St. Johnsbury Caledonian, December 3, 1885
