      EPHRAIM LEWIS was born July 8, 1836, at Albany, Fayette county, Penna,
      and was educated in the common schools of the county. He began work in
      the glass factory as a tender boy, when a mere lad. He moved to Fayette
      city, thence to Belle Vernon, to Pittsburgh in 1845, and again to Belle
      Vernon in 1846 where he still resides.
      He was married in 1861 to Miss Sabina Van Hook, a daughter of Samuel
      Van Hook, a native of Virginia, and now a resident of Brownsville, Penna;
      he was at one time a part owner of the Belle Vernon Glass Works. Mr Lewis
      has six children: Lizzie Lewis, married to John Kittle; Samuel C Lewis,
      resides in Bellaire, Ohio; Margaret Lewis, William H Lewis, Mary S Lewis
      and Charles A V Lewis, living at home. Mrs Lewis died June 17, 1874.
      Mr Lewis is a member of the K of L, of the I O of O F, and has been a
      member of the school board for nine years. He owns a comfortable home and
      has some good property in the town. He began blowing glass in 1861, and
      is still engaged in that business at the Belle Vernon Glass Works. He is
      a preceptor of the K of G.
      Ephraim Lewis is the son of William Lewis and Margaret Sutton Lewis.
      William H Lewis was born in Virginia in 1806, and came to Pennsylvania
      when a boy with his parents, who settled at Monongahela City. His father,
      Burton Lewis, the grandfather of Ephraim Lewis, was born in Delaware, and
      was one of the early settlers of Pennsylvania.
      Mr Lewis's mother, Margaret Sutton Lewis, was born in 1804 in
      Perryopolis. She lives with her son Ephraim Lewis in Belle Vernon. Her
      father, Nathaniel Sutton, was a farmer, one of the early settlers of
      Fayette county, and was one of the leading men in the Methodist Episcopal
      church. He married Miss Brown (see Alexander Brown's sketch). Ephraim
      Lewis's mother has in her possession a table set of four pieces of
      pewter ware that has been handed down in the Brown family for over 200
      years.
