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.
As some of these events seem to take place in Philadelphia, I'd suggest you post your query on the Philadelphia forum, too. Just use the JUMP TO FORUM in the upper right corner.
