_________________________

NOTES/SOURCES:
His name is given as Charlie "A." Lewis, Sr., by granddaughter, Jewell Estelle (Lewis) Buckley, as informant on her father's death certificate, whose given name was Charles Alexander Lewis - implying the "A." in her grandfather's name to be "Alexander" as well.

On at least two of his children's death certificates, his middle initial appears as an "S." NOT an "A." Both of these death certificates had different informants.
