Death of Mr. Lewis C. Spencer
Mr. Lewis C. Spencer, a venerable and influential citizen of Catahoula parish, La., died last Monday at his residence on Little River, about 9 miles above Troyville.  Mr. Spencer was a gentleman of the old school and the possessor of many sterling qualities which endeared him to legions of friends in Louisiana and Mississippi.  His influence as a useful and intelligent citizen was widely felt in Catahoula, and his death creates a deep void in circles where he was venerated and love.--Natchez Banner.
Mr. Spencer was a brother of the late Judge Spencer and an uncle of Mrs. C. J. and J. S. Boatner of this city.
Lewis Cass Spencer was born in Catahoula Parish in 1832 to the marriage of George S. Spencer and Nancy Stone.  He married Priscilla A. Elam ca. 1852 and was the father of Nancy Elizabeth and George Elam Spencer.
