Hi Mary.Nice to hear from you.Thank you for responding.
I've been trying to gather information on the 13 LEWIS siblings, and I've found a little on most of them.But, Helen, "Nettie" and 2 brothers I had very little on.I started typing up a report on the whole family last year, but haven't had time to finish it.Now I'm glad I waited.
I think it was fall or winter when I heard from 2 daughters of John LEWIS out your way.I can't think of their names at this second.They've been waiting for me to finish the report.
I've been extra busy for 3 days;we've had beautiful, New England fall weather this week.I had to do a lot of driving, for different reasons, but I didn't mind too much because of all the nice scenery I experienced.And, I just came home a few minutes ago from going to yard sales and farm stands, etc.
I probably mentioned in my posting / query that my grandfather was Silas Dean LEWIS.He had 3 children with his first wife, a daughter and then 2 sons,Louise, Stanley, and Silas, Jr.I am Stanley's oldest daughter.
I have something to do right now, so that's all I'll say for the moment.
(35 yrs. in Billerica, MA;5 yrs. in Chelmsford, MA)
(grew up in Winchester and Arlington, MA)
P.S.My grandfather had 3 marriages.With his 2st wife, Clarissa KIDDER, he had his only children.They divorced in 1935 and both remarried within a few months.Clarissa had 2 more children with her 2nd husband.It's her FRANCIS daughter and grand children that I visited with this week.They had a death in their family.
