He married Laura Marguerite Remington, born in Philadelphia. She was the youngest daughter of Capt. John S. Remington, a descendant of an old Philadelphia family. Her early life was spent in Philadelphia. She was much loved by a large coterie of friends, and had many admirers, among whom was Lewis Dewart Apsley, then an active young business man of Philadelphia. Their marriage occurred in that city in 1873, where they resided for a few years, then went to Boston, Massachusetts, and finally located in Hudson, Massachusetts, in 1883. Their only son, Willie George, died in 1880.[1]

When Laura died in 1914, her companion, Abigail Fobes Aldrich Black, the widow of a favorite cousin, Victor F. Black, had been running their household for nearly 20 years. Due to the morals of the times, Abigail had to move out or marry Lewis Apsley to keep her place. They were married May 1, 1915[2]. Abigail (nee Abbie) and Lewis traveled to Europe together several times and enjoyed his remaining years together.

Apsley was elected as a Republican to the Fifty-third and Fifty-fourth Congresses (March 4, 1893 – March 3, 1897). He served as chairman of the Committee on Manufactures (Fifty-fourth Congress). He declined to be a candidate for renomination in 1896. He resumed his former business pursuits in Hudson, Massachusetts. He served two terms as vice chairman of the Republican National Congressional Committee. He died in Colon, Panama, April 11, 1925. He was interred in Forestvale Cemetery, Hudson, Massachusetts.
