Lewis Wilson Scrogum was standing under a tree, in the yard of his home, holding his gun which he alwasy carried. Notice the jaunty angle of the hat. It says he was a little proud of himself. He was very popular and invited to all parties, hoedpowns, barn-raisings, and corn huskings. He always took his fiddle white he played well. But he was a wanted man in Brown Co., IN for manstaughter, and a duel with a neighbor over the fence line beterrn their properties. A man of his time.!
