Abel, George and Francis Lewis from West Zanesville
I purchased a letter written by Francis Lewis (George's son) when he was herein Maryland before the battle of Antietam, in the September 1862. Also, among the group of letters is a "Death letter" sent to George Lewis, written by a soldier who was with Francis Lewis when he died in Marrietta, Georgia. I would like to communicate with descendants of Mr. Lewis, and I am in hopes that someone might be able to help me find living members of the family who might be interested in having the letter. Also, any information that you might have about the family would be of great interest to me, as I want to round out the life of this young soldier.
I tried contacting Nan Sabulsky (Lewis, Johnston, Shellenbarger, Rector, Allen, message posted April 12, 2002)in hopes that she might have information on the Lewis family, but the email was returned.
