|I am Margaret Givens-Green. I am a descendant of William "Berry" Lewis. I have discovered (98% sure) Berry's father (Ambrose Lewis) and grandfather (John Lewis). |
Berry's son, John William Lewis, was the first African American to settle at Salem, Michigan in September 1879. The Lewises have lived in Salem from 1879 to present day.
