I've been searching for more information about Horace Holden Lewis, Sr. He was born around 1795 though I haven't been able to find out where (possibly CT or MA) or who his parents were. He married Experience Bassett from Lee, MA around 1819. He had 2 sons, Frank (1819) and Horace Holden Jr. (1824). He died Dec. 27, 1824 after the Dec. 9, 1824 explosion at the Laflin Loomis mill in S. Lee, MA .
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
