Anson R. Lewis was born in 1842.
Anson was 19 years old and possibly living in Grand Rapids with his family when he enlisted with his parents’ consent in Company A on May 13, 1861. (Neither he nor his family appear in the 1860 census for Kent County.)
He was killed in action on May 31, 1862, at Fair Oaks, Virginia, and was presumably among the unknown soldiers buried at Seven Pines National Cemetery.
No pension seems to be available.
