Lewis Agenbroad came from Maryland to Ohio with his father when about ten years of age, and settled near Dayton. Here Lewis learned the brick and stone mason trade, and built several large factories in Dayton, among which was the foundry and cotton factory. His father, Daniel Agenbroad, served in the War of 1812 under Gen. Harrison. He will be eighty-one years of age next Sunday, May 2, 1880, but having been a man of a remarkable strong constitution, even at his advanced age is smart and active, while his hair is less gray than that of most men at fifty
