Documentation:
Daniel Lewis, was a native of Kentucky, born in Shelby county, December 4, 1800,
where he lived until he was twenty-seven years old when he moved to
Indianapolis, Indiana. After spending a couple of years there, and three years
at Quincy, Illinois, he located in Des Moines Co., Iowa. In the fall of 1850 the
family joined a wagon train headed for the California gold rush; because of a
storm that overturned their wagon and injured Daniel the family stayed in Mills
county, Iowa. He located on land then in the possession of the Mormons, and from
whom he purchased it in Aug. 1851. It was then known as Cutler's camp. At the
time Mr. Lewis came to Mills county the country about him and Malvern, except
the "Mormon settlement" was unoccupied by white men. He was identified with the
first formation and settlement of the county; he was a member of the first grand
jury organized in the county; he had seen corn sold in the early days of the
settlements for $1.50 per bushel; his farm was in section 7, and contained over
twelve hundred acres.
