LEWIS SPEAK, born in Nelson County, Ky., Oct. 15, 1815, is a son of John Speak, an early settler of that county. He was educated in the common schools and in St. Mary's College, Marion County.

Nine children have been born to them--Mary, John T., Sarah, Matilda, Rebecca, Martina, Henry, William and Emma. Matilda married Zachariah Head, and died Jan. 21, 1883, leaving two children.
