New Jersey Obituaries - 1900 - Miss Jane Lewis
Miss Jane Lewis died on Saturday at the home of her brother-in-law, Charles Cross, near Fair Haven, aged 84 years. Death was due to a general breaking down. She was very active and in possession of all her faculties until a week previous to her death.
Miss Lewis was born on December 17th, 1815, within a stone’s throw of where she died. Her parents were Mary Brown and Jacob Lewis and the homestead was near the spot where the LeMon house now stands. Her brothers and sister were William, Jacob, Joseph, James and Mary A. Lewis, Mary having married Charles Cross. Miss Lewis is the last of her immediate family. She leaves two nieces, Mrs. Sarah Pippey of New York and Mrs. M. D. Snyder of Brooklyn; and two nephews, William Allen Lewis, a summer resident of Red Bank, and William E. Cross of Fair Haven.
Miss Lewis was a woman of more than common intellect and by her gentle manner and unselfish disposition won the hearts of all who knew her. The funeral was held yesterday at the Episcopal church at Fair Haven, Miss Lewis having been a member of that church since it was founded. The service was conducted by Rev. P. F. Crozier. The body was buried at Fair View cemetery.
