Henry L. Lewis.

Among the valued employees of the Burlington Railroad at Atchison, Kansas, is Henry L. Lewis, general agent for the company at this point.  Mr. Lewis is a native of New York.  He was born on a farm in Herkimer county, July 24, 1858, a son of James H. and Mary E. (Stewart) Lewis, both natives of that state.

The family removed to Ford county, Illinois, when Henry L. was quite small and there he passed his boyhood days and acquired his education in the common schools.  He began his railroad career at the age of sixteen years, when he entered the employ of the Toledo, Peoria & Warsaw Railroad Company.  For seven years he was with that corporation, a part of the time acting as agent and operator.  In 1879 he entered the employ of the Burlington & Missouri railroad and was with it until he accepted his present position, that of general agent for the Burlington system.

Mr. Lewis was married, in 1884, to Miss Mary E. Bank, of Odell, Illinois, a daughter of Samuel Bank, and they are the parents of two children, a son and a daughter, George F. and Ina.  For some years Mr. Lewis has been actively identified with the Masonic order and has advanced through the various degrees of the same up to and including those of the commandery.  He holds membership in Friend Lodge, No. 73, at Friend, Nebraska; Mount Hebron Chapter, and Mount Hebron Commandery, No. 12, K. T.
