Re: William H. Lewis-Arthur M. Lewis-180

HI Brenda-

What a strange coincidence, but unless MY grandmother was leading some sort of double life, it's not the same Lillian May Lewis. Born in 1886 in Fairfax County, she married a John Loring Baker somewhere around 1910-1912 or so, gave birth to my mother, Barbara, in 1915 in Cleveland, and moved to Washington, DC, where she died (at only 41) in 1927.

BTW, my original post mistakenly mentions Charles H. Lewis as Lillian's grandfather. Actually it was William H. Lewis who was. Charles H. Lewis was an uncle or great uncle or some such.

I tracked Charles H. to a confederate pension roll in 1909. I've been unsuccessful so far in turning up info on Arthur M. or William H.

I would not be at all surprised if my grandmother and your great grandmother were cousins of some sort. Supposedly, William H. Lewis moved in the early 1850's to Fairfax County , VA, probably from New York State, where his father had moved in the early 1800's from Rhode Island.

I'll make a note, cuz, to keep an eye out for another Lillian May Lewis, or for the name Crizer in connection with the Lewis brood.

Best of luck and thanks,

Dave Jacobs
