Eva was my grand aunt

Youngest daughter of George and Mary Hickey Preston. Buried with her parents, her older brother, Alden and her husband Wallace Lewis. She was a strict woman that at a young age was expected to take over for her mother in raising her younger brother. Her older siblings already with families of their own, Eva took on the role of housekeeper and mother to her father and little brother. Census shows Eva to be homemaker.

She was active in the Ladies Auxiliary to the Public Service Railway Social Club in Paterson back in the early 1900's serving on many committees.

According to my research she married Wallace Lewis sometime between 1906 and 1910.

Dear aunt Eva, I know I haven't been by here recently, but you know I've been to the grave many times. I've been researching you more in hopes to find out about your mom, my problem child, Mary Bridget. Where I don't get very far with her, I find more inf...(Read more)
