1. Hunch...I think it likely that Mourning Lewis might well be the start of many other women in my Wilburn family cluster named Mourning and or Morning. I have at least six or seven Mournings in my database...c 1750 to 1850.
The name Mourningwas usually given a female child born after the death of her father. Of course the mother would have been "expecting" at the time of the father's death.
