History from Goodspeed's 1885 history of Pike and DuBois Counties: Lewis is the oldest of four children of Henry and Susanna (Beck) Loveless. Lewis was one of the most prominent citizens and a native of Logan Township.They were natives of Pike County. The Loveless family settled in Pike County about 1811 and the Beck family came from Gibson County about four years later.
Lewis's mother died when he was four years of age. At the age of thirteen years he went to live with Lewis Beck with whom he remained for two years. He then made his home with his granfather Beck remaining there until his grandfather's death. Lewis always evidenced a decided love for learning. He learned without the aid of an instructor and by the age of eighteen, he had mastered the common branches of learning. A year later he began teaching and followed that occupation until 1884.
On September 8, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, Fifty-Eighth Indiana Regiment to fight in the Civil War. He served until 1863. He was discharged because of a disability arising from inflammatory rheumatism. During service, he was captured by John Morgan at Bardstown, KY.
In 1864 he united with the Missionary Baptist Church of which he was an ordained elder.
In 1870, he moved to Knox County and was nominated by the Republican Party to represent the Second District as a member of Congress. The district was largely Democratic, but he succeeded in reducing their majority over 3,000 votes.
In 1878, he returned to Pike County. He is Republican in politics and shows a warm interest in the affairs of the county.
Most of his life has been passed on a farm of which he has 80 acres improved.
