Mother of Gov. Meriwether Lewis

Lucy's first husband was Lt. William Lewis, buried at "Clover Fields" in Albemarle County, Virginia.They had the four children shown linked below.

Her second husband was Capt. John Marks, a friend of William Lewis. John died about 1791 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia and is presumably buried there. John and Lucy had two children, Dr. John Hastings Marks who died in Baltimore and Mary Garland (Marks) Moore, who died in Alabama. Burial places are not known for either.

NOTE: John Marks is not the Rev. John Marks someone has linked to Lucy.
