Biography of Lewis V. Evans
Madison County, NY Biographies





Evans, Lewis Vincent, p. o. Chittenango Station, agent for the N. Y. C. & H. R. R. at Chittenango, is a native of Oneida county. He was born at Remsen, N. Y., September 13, 1859. His father, of the same name, and now deceased, was born in Wales and came to America when about twenty years of age. Finding a home with relatives near Rome, he took advantage of the superior educational facilities there afforded, as we note his name in the roster of students at the old Rome Academy for the year 1848. He died at Rome in 1894, aged seventy four years. The present Lewis Evans also received his education at Rome, and shortly before attaining his majority he became manager of the Atlantic & Pacific Telegraph office. In 1881 he went west, spending nearly a year in Missouri, then in 1882 became telegraph operator and freight clerk at Rome, N. Y., during which engagement he made another western tour, this time to Illinois, returning in 1883. During the succeeding four years he was freight clerk and operator at Rome, and ticket and freight agent at Pierrepont Manor, N. Y. In June, 1888, he assumed the duties of agent and operator here and upon the decease of the acting freight agent in 1891, took charge of that office also. He proves a most efficient and popular official. Soon after locating here he became a Mason and was for two years, 1896 and 1897, master of the local lodge, Sullivan No. 148.
