For anyone descended from Philip Lewis (decendants of his son William still live in Adams), there is some new information about him that contradicts the family "history" by his grandson, Zachary Taylor Lewis, on file at the historical society.
Z.T. said he thought Phiip's father was an Enoch, but documents from both Chester and Westmoreland PA and from Monongalia WV indicate his father was also a Philip. This Philip Lewis Sr. first appears in Vincent Twp, Chester PA as a member of the militia in 1756. He and his family are listed as members of the Great Valley Baptist Church (and later the Vincent church)in Chester. In the 1780s, Philip Sr. deeded land in Chester to Philip Jr. (wife Esther, not Elizabeth as Z.T.'s history claimed). In 1783 both Philip Sr. and Philip Jr. are listed on tax rolls in Westmoreland Co. PA.
In 1785, one Philip (probably jr) was in Washington Co. PA, the other in neighboring Fayette Co, PA. In 1790, Philip Jr. was in Washington PA before moving to Adams Co. OH about 1797.
In 1784, Philip Lewis Sr. received a land grant in Monongalia VA (now WV) for 207 acres, but he never appears on personal property rolls there. However, in 1814, a court record in Monongalia indicates that his four children are having the property resurveyed after Philip's death (date not given--died intestate). The four children named (and the doc states "his only children" are Philip, Enoch, Catherine (Merrells) and Rachel (Williams).
Research is ongoing, but if any of you have Philip of Adams Co. OH in your genealogy files, I think you can safely say his father was Philip, not Enoch.
