Genealogy has become a hobby for me over the last 10 years. For me, it's like a puzzle, I love fitting the pieces together. But over the years, I've researched a lot that does not pertain to our family lines. Some for extended family, some for close friends, and some because I was trying to rule out lines to figure out where our line went exactly. I do not want these notes on my Heather's Genealogy Notes blog - because they are not our lines. But I do like to share all of my research, in case it benefits others. That is what this blog is for - research I have done that does not apply to our own family lines, but may be helpful for someone else.

Lewis Genealogy To Lester Eugine Lewis 1922-1982

Although not my genealogy, this is one of my major projects this winter.  My stepfather is Sam Lewis, son of Lester Lewis, and I would like to put his genealogy together, with the family photos, in an album for him & for my step brothers, for Christmas this year.  

Ironically, my husband's maternal line connects to my stepfather's maternal line - so my husband is related by blood to my stepfather, while I am not.  :-)

All of the photos I have collected can be found here:

Israel Lewis 1717 – 1770
Jane Drew 1725 – 1804
Lived in Maidstone, Kent, England

fathered a child with his housekeeper
Priscila Forwood 1783 – 1872
Purchased Mount Lewis, & Lewis Lake - now known as Eagles Mere, and established a glass works there.

Mary Jane Casterline 1818 – 1891

Ida E. Brown 1872 – 1917

Anna J. Henry 1903 – 1954

Lester Eugene Lewis 1922 – 1982
Mary Ellen Shook 1927 – 2011
