"Back in New York State, things took a turn for the worse for Lewis. He required a second amputation on his left leg. Some said it was because of contributory negligence on his part: others said there was surgical malpractice in his case. Regardless, the consequences were fatal. Lewis died on May 1, 1863. He was buried at the Methodist church cemetery in Sand Hill. He had never married nor had any children." (From Whither thou Goest by Patrick Simpson).
