In 1962 the film "How the West Was Won" was released.  A portion of the filming took place in Cave-in-Rock, Illinois.  Part of that filming was on Jack Lewis' land known as Battery Rock.  Specifically, the scene where the character of Jimmy Stewart is introduced.  The photos were taken over several days of shooting by Jack Lewis and his wife Doris.  Charles P. Lewis, Jack's Great, Great Grandfather, is buried at Battery Rock in a small family cemetery called Browns Cemetery.  Jack Lewis eventually sold the land to the federal government.  It is now a National Park.
