Clarasa Dutton Lewis obituary

Mrs. Clarasa Dutton Lewis
July 5, 1925

     The passing of Mrs. Clarasa Lewis takes from our midst one of our oldest citizens. She had passed her 82nd birthday. Many years ago George Dutton, a retired farmer of the town of Broome moved to this village bringing with him his daughter Clarasa. She was a devoted daughter and was their constant helper during their declining years. After middle age she became the wife of our townsman Benjamin F. Lewis. Several years ago he passed away. Mrs. Lewis was domestic in her life and was of a kindly disposition. Over 60 years ago she united with the Methodist church and if we are rightly informed was its oldest member. She was buried from the church Sunday.
