  • William LEWIS

    Male Abt 1748 -


    Personal Information    |    Sources    |    Event Map    |    All    |    PDF

    • Name William LEWIS  [1
      Born Abt 1748  [1
      • This birth year is simply an estimate given the information in the will of William Lewis in 1784. It stated that Griffith was the eldest son, and we've learned that he was born in 1744, and since Thomas is listed as the last son, and we know he was born in 1755, I have simply estimated the birth years for the other children of William Lewis.
