He took part in an Indian war after which Iowa opened up for settlements. Lewis and his father each secured title to 2,000 acres of land in Iowa, where he hard of the persecution of the Saints. Although he was not personally disposed toward any religion, a pair of traveling missionaries taught him and his family and others in the community. After traveling to Nauvoo to meet Joseph Smith, he was baptized in the spring of 1840, and confirmed by the Prophet. He helped in the building of the Nauvoo temple, and later moved his family to the Nauvoo area. A neighbor took his farm and mobs burned his home. In Winter Quarters, during the winter of 1846-47, he hauled provisions from Missouri to the exiles. He crossed the plains with the original company and distinguished himself as one of their best hunters. In 1852, he brought his family west and established a lumber business in Provo. He later moved to Spanish Fork, then to Spring City, Sanpete C., and then to Monroe. He settled for a time in Grass Valley in Sevier Co. and in Arizona.
