: I have uncovered a connection to Prince
: George's County Maryland and I was wondering
: if anyone has come across these names in
: their research.
: William T.A. (Thomas Andrew) Lewis b. 1818
: in MD
: m. Matilda Kelly b. apprx 1823 - presumably in
: William was a shoemaker.
: They had the following children:
: Mary A. Lewis b. apprx 1842
: Joshua A. Lewis - b.6 OCt 1844
: William T. Lewis b. Mar 1846
: james Henry Lewis - b. 15 Mar 1851
: George W. Lewis - b.25 Sep 1855
: Elizabeth A. Lewis - b.1856
: Casandra Lewis - b 7 Dec 1857
: The first clue to a connection in PG County,
: was the obituary for Matilda Kelly Lewis who
: d.13 Sep 1888 - where DC papers were
: requested to copy.
: I then pulled the Death Cert for her oldest
: daughter - Mary A, Lewis - who was born
: apprx 1841-1842 - her birthplace is listed
: as Laurel, MD. -
: William and his family do not show in the
: Baltimore City Directories until the late
: 1840's - So this coincides with the fact
: that the Lewis famiy was in the Laurel area.
: Thanks for any assistance.
