Re: Lewzey Family London c1800
Hello! It's so great to hear from a descendent of the Lewzey line.I'm not related to you, but William Lewzey is responsible for my family being members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.He joined the Church in London and later baptized William Warner Major and his brother, sister and their spouses and children in London in 1842.In fact, he was instrumental in baptizing many, many people.
I have a copy of a letter written from Lorenzo Snow (later a President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) to William Lewzey and William Warner Major, who served as "The Presidency of Elders of London Branches."
Church meetings were held at Lewzey's home in London.After he immigrated to St. Louis, he left the Church.William Warner Major and his family emigrated to Utah where I still live.I have some records of the Lewzey family in St. Louis.
