I'm an avid genealogist. I'm very willing to share for mutual discoveries. I am more than willing to hand over memorials if you are family.
I'm searching many family lines with DNA. Our priority is looking for any males willing to test yDNA. Hoping to break walls into 1700's Virginia and Maryland for Lewis, and Lee. Adjacent surnames Burgess, French, Hickman, Hopkins, Power, Rollins, Powell, Lowe, Petty, Collins, Violett. If your family is in one of my virtual cemeteries, likely I can explain our commonality.
Will assist fellow genealogists with legwork in greater Chicagoland, as ability allows.
RE: Lewis Willie Mae Watson Lewis is my sister. Edwin Eugene Lewis is my brother-in-law. His father, Thomas Webb Lewis was born in Gaston County, North Carolina, passed away in Wilmington N.C. His mother was Mary Cathrine Bass Lewis born in Southern Pine, North Carolina. passed away in Wilmington N.C. Gene had brothers Jackie, Jimmy, and Carlisle. Sister's Deanna and one other (Mary?). I don't remember her name. I know very little about the Lewis family. I was a small child when these were alive. Even at that they lived in Wilmington very far away. Don't know if this was any help to you. R.W.
RE: Lees Kinda related! I started this for a friend who is related, and discovered that Bobbie Lee Birkhimer's grandmother was a Martindill. I'm related to them. Bobbie Lee was my husband's sister-in-law. :D
Malissa Hopkins Thank you for the link to her husband Isaac Hopkins. You're right - she was his 2nd husband. We didn't have dates or burial location though. Hopkins is my husbands mother's maiden name and we've been researching this line trying to tie up loose ends. Every bit helps.
