Willard and Francis married 29 Mar 1916 Dallas, Polk, OR. He worked in the hop yards probably around Monmouth or nearer to the river next to Salem.
Willard's parents Orson Lewis and Elizabeth Nichols Lewis. His grandparents Nathan Daniel Lewis and Francis Boone Lewis. His greatgrandparents are traced to Meriwether Lewis and Ikpasarewinsara Windwalker.
Willard is third born to this family these are his sibblings...John R.(d.Wasco Co,OR 1927), Silas C., Emma Jane "Amy" Lewis Buckmaster(d.Naches,Yakima,WA 1947), Sylvanus "Vane" (d.Polk Co,OR 1935), Joseph, Noble, C.Ervin, Albert A.Bert, Emily Ellen.
The Lewis' migrated from the East out to the West after Meriwether's trip so if you see a Lewis you can pretty much be sure there is some relation there as I never saw so many Lewis' in Oregon after this research. Just my personal opinion and proud to have run across this gentle man that married my greatgrandmother. There are no children to this union. As far as I know he married late in his life and there are no known children of his.
