Biographical data
Name: Lewis, John James  
Born: 1822
Died: 28 Dec. 1888
 
Notes:
Gaige has date of birth as 1823. Steve Mann (personal communication) gives date of baptism as 17-03-1822, so I am guessing that he was born in 1822. Is this the Lewis who played in a blindfold exhibition by Blackburne in Manchester in 1862 (see the Era, 16 Feb. 1862, p.14)?
