Lewis Sewall1

M, b. 2 February 1760, d. 1833
     Lewis Sewall was born on 2 February 1760 in Charles County, Maryland.2,3 He was the son of Charles Sewall and Ann Violette Goodrich.1 Lewis Sewall married Elizabeth Howard Wailes, daughter of Edward Lloyd Wailes, on 30 October 1797 in Columbia County, Georgia.4 On 18 April 1810 Lewis Sewall was appointed Register of the Land Office in the Mississippi Territory east of Pearl River and resigned becuase of the pressure of work and failing eyesight in about 1817. Lewis Sewall died in 1833 in Washington County, Alabama.5

In an article entitled "Reminiscences of Old St. Stephens" in the Transactions of the Alabama Historical Society 1898-99, Vol. III there appears: "Lewis Sewall. Within its precincts there once wandered around an erratic individual, something of a poet. I have often heard my father repeat with great gusto a comic poem written by him on a very common subject. I remember the lines jingled harmoniously, and the rhythm was smooth and flowing, but it was not at all refined. Still it was enough to credit the old town with a poet - Captain Sewall. Some may think that there was quite an array of titles among those old inhabitants. Well, so there was; and let us bear in mind that those were days when a title, either civil or military or professional, stood for something"

One of his poems addressed to Dr. Thomas Sewall of Washington, D.C. reads

"When Cromwell ruled Old England's Isle,
And drove the Stuarts into exile,
Two Henry Sewalls, gallant hearts,
From principle, took different parts:
Your Ancestor, as poets sing,
Join'd Oliver; and mine, the King:
But when the second Charles return'd,
And Cromwell's corps was hang'd or burn'd,
Your ancestor to Boston steer'd,
And mine for Maryland, I've heard;
Our family records say 'tis true,
And hence these lines I write to you.
Three volant Bees our Arms display,
As English heralds' records say;
And for the Crest, a Leopard's head
Is plac'd, although the beast is dead.
You now can tell, or bad, or good,
If you and I are of one blood.

Yours respectfully,

Life Long Resident of Bath Dies in Florida at Age of 76 Years

Miss Lina Gove Sewall, 76, a life long resident of Bath died Thursday in Winter Park, Fla. just three weeks after she closed her home at 44 Pearl street to go to the El Cortez apartments for the season according to her usual custom. death was due to heart trouble with which she had been afflicted several years.
Miss Sewall was born in Bath, a daughter of the late Gen Frederick Dummer and Evelina Hill (Gove) Sewall. She was educated in the local schools and at Abbott Academy. Her father saw distinguished service in the Civil war and was present at the surrender of Gen. Lee to Gen. Grant at Appamattox court house where he received from the Confederate general the documents of surrender which he passed to the Union general. Gen. Sewall later was appointed U.S. Commissioner of Inland Revenue and Miss Sewall passed much time in Washington with him. She had been a member of Winter Street church since early womanhood and active in many branches of the church work during her younger life. She was held in high esteem for her womanly traits and loveliness of character. The late Capt. Joseph E. Sewall was her only brother and there are no near family relatives. Dr. John C. Berry of Worcester, Mass. was an uncle.
Miss Sewall was for many years a member of the Board of Managers of the Old Ladies' Home.
Miss Sewall left Bath Nov. 2 in company with a cousin, Miss Linda Swazey of Bucksport, to be gone for the Winter. Her health was none too good at the time.
