    More info on LEWIS'& EMMERSON'S


    Hi Lora,   Quick follow up to last night's email. My best guess of the picture taken of the two brothers was around this plot #241 in Section #5. You can see my George Washington Lewis as well as his wife, Martha, mother, Frances, and when you check on the Orton's, you can see they had the whole family except John Henry and Mary Frances. The first of the two Samuel M.s  was the son of Samuel Morgan and Frances Pulley born 10 Feb. 1836 and died 11 July. 1854. As you can see, our Samuel Morgan is buried here but the date of birth is incorrect as it is in all of my other records, and yours, I believe, July 4,1784. And, we're still missing the elusive Sarah that Mildred wrote so much about. I'm convinced that she never left the area around Uniontown and Fayette County. Mildred went up to the court house and researched years ago but I'm sure that the records were spotty and so much has improved with computers. Couldn't live without mine.     All for today. After awhile, I'm not even sure who I am.     Marty   Click here: http://files.usgwarchives.net/va/portsmouth/cemeteries/portlock-h-l.txt
