1913 Corydon, Wayne Co., IA Newspaper
John Nelson Lewellen, one of Wayne county's pioneer residents, passed away last Sunday
at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Bessie James, after an illness of two months of
complicated diseases, at the age of 65 years.
He was born September 9th in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was a son of Wm. T. Lewellen and wife.
He came with his father to Wayne county in 1850, settling east of Corydon. In 1867 he was
united in marriage to Anna M. Hand, who passed away in 1901, leaving three children, three
having died in infancy. The children now living are Lucy E. Brewer, of Eldon, Iowa;
Phurba E. Consoliver and Bessie E. James of Corydon.
The funeral services were held Monday, conducted by Rev. C. C. Davis of the Christian
church and the remains were laid to rest beside that of his wife in the Hogue cemetery.

John Nelson Lewellen was my great-grandfather's brother. His parents were William
Thomas Lewellen and Lucinda PHILLIPS Lewellen (Boswell). Would love to connect to any one
related to this family.
