Jacksonville Daily Journal, Sunday, Dec. 31, 1876


We were pained to learn yesterday, of the very sudden death of another of Morgan County's old citizens. Mr. David Lewis, long a resident of this vicinity, living of late upon his farm some six miles south of the City, died from a stroke of apoplexy Friday last. He was some 61 years of age, and his general health had been good. About 5 o'clock Friday afternoon he went out of the house for some firewood. Returning he threw it down from out of his arms, and dropped upon the floor insensible, and did not breath afterwards. The funeral services will be held at the residence today, at 2 p.m., and the body will be interred in the Lewis grave yard nearby.
