It's evident from the death registration that Lewis married a second time.This was on the 1st of January 1916 at Victoria College in Toronto, the clergyman being R. Bowles. Lewis' wife was a widow by the name of Grace Cooper, maiden name McCrae. There is no evidence that she was buried in the St. George Cemetery and so she was probably buried with her first husband.
