Looking for info on James W Lewis and his brothers John R and George T. They had sisters Rebecca and Catherine. James was my Great, Great grandfather. I believe there father was James as well and mother may have been Catherine. Would like to verify parents were James and Catherine and find out who their parents were. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!

Catherine McCannan maried Thomas Lewis 1 Dec 1812 in Cecil Co, MD. I believe she is the same Catherine who appears in the 1850 Census of Charlestown, Cecil Co, MD with the children you have outlined. In the census she is age 65 which would mean she was born about 1785.

Sorry for getting back so late on this, I must not have received the email. This is exactly the information I was looking for. Do you have any more information regarding Thomas and Catherine? I have a bill of sale in 1824 where Thomas purchased a 12 oar boat, he then is not listed in census records again. I wonder if he died on board his boat? Thank you so much!

One more thing, I assume you are descended from Benedict Brooks and Catherine Lewis? I am descended from James W and Evaline Grant. Thanks!

I am not descended from the Lewis family, I am related to Elizabeth J Sloan who married John Robert Lewis in 1891. Her father was my gg grandfather. I would like to hear from descendants of John Robert Lewis and Elizabeth J Sloan.

I have a transcript of John Robert and Elizabeth Sloans wedding announcement from Dec 12 1891. If you do not have it you can view it at: http://files.usgwarchives.org/md/cecil/newspapers/whig1891c....

May I ask how you had so much info on Thomas and Catherine such as Thomas birth, first marriage and Catherines fathers name? I have recently been putting the clues together and was about 95% sure that Catherines husbands name was Thomas (I used to think it was James) and then I found your posting from last year that brought it home. Thank you so much for the info!

Thomas's marriages are in Maryland Marriages. Then you can follow the census. 1820 Thomas Lewis, 1830 Catherine Lewis, 1840 Catherine Lewis and 1850 Catherine Lewis. These census records pretty much reflect the same family. I suspect that George T Lewis was born in 1820, not 1822. He shows up in various census records as 1820 and 1822. But the 1820 census indicates 2 males born before that census. That would be James W and George T.

I used the 1800 census to determine likely parent of Catherine McCannan.

I have a deed that Thomas Lewis purchased a lot 57 in Charlestown, MD in 1816. Later George T also purchased from the Commissioners of Charlestown the same lot in 1850. This had to be where the family lived. This has been great fun. Thank you for all the information it is appreciated!
