Lewis County, located in the center of the state was created on December 18, 1816 when the Virginia State General Assembly passed the act to establish the county named in honor of Colonel Charles Lewis. Colonel Charles Lewis was one of the key leaders of the colonist against the Shawnee at the Battle of Point Pleasant. He was mortally wounded at the battle and his last words were recorded as “Push on, boys. Don’t mind me.” Being in the middle of the state, Lewis county has been a major part of the development of the state.

This volume includes the history of the county from 1816 until the mid-1880's. The family sketches are submitted by the families themselves so the information should be more accurate than other sources.
