the names James Williams and Ann Lewis do not appear in QUAKER ARRIVALS IN PHILADELPHIA 1682-1750, or IMMIGRATION OF THE IRISH QUAKERS INTO PA 1682-1750.....However, by the names, I think it a fair working theory that they were all WElsh...anytime you see a surname that is generally a given name, you can figure, because of the Welsh naming system, that the folks are Welsh....and, I know that Reece/Rice/Rees, etc, is very Welsh. So this should be a clue as to where they might be found. All three surnames are extremely common in the entire area.
I have the Philadelphia MM records for births and deaths...none of the names are included...nor are they in the Philadelphis yearly meeting .
What is your documentation for saying that all these folks are Quakers? That often is a clue as to where to be looking.
