Kelly: I think you maybe giving me my first break-through on the Lewis family in years. Please let me explain: My ggggrandfather, Col.Samuel Lewis, was born either in Goochland or Henrico Counties, Virginia around 1750.He supposedly was born along the James River on the Tuckahoe Branch possibly in Henrico County at that time.The Lewis family was either intermarried or very, very good friends of the Adams family at that time. Unlike the Adams family that came to Tennesse in 1809 from Virginia, I have a spposition that the Lewis family came through Kentucky to the Central part of Tennessee. However, at this time I am at a loss for proof, I just don't have them that far back, yet. Col.Samuel Lewis, I believe, had a son John W.P.Lewis,Sr. who had several children and Carroll Lewis of Wilson County, Tennessee is one. That's all I know so far. If you run-up against something let me know. I am familar with your ancester William Adams who lived near Richmond, Virginia in the early years 1710 so forth. Thanks for the valuable clue.
