Notes for HENRY T. LEWIS:
The Lewis Family of the Southeast

This family is primarily centered around the ancestors of John Lewis of Wales. But there are several offshoots from this tree. This family is Caucasian. Notes have not been included here but if you would like a copy of the GEDCOM with notes, just contact me via e-mail.

The LEWIS family is and was from the southeastern United States. Our oldest research goes back to the British Isles and then to France and back to the British Isles. Every time they would cross the English Channel they would change the spelling of the name. The family crossed into the new world into the Carolinas. They continued moving westward across southern Georgia south Alabama and northwest Florida. The largest concentration known of the family today is a few miles north of Bonifay, Florida just below the Alabama state line.

The HURSTON side of my family also came from South Carolina via Georgia and then to Alabama where my branch is down to a handful of name survivors. But there is another rather large group north of LaGrange, Georgia. Some Civil War Hurstons have a rather colorful biography that would be of interest to family members. For more information on the Hurston family contact Jan Hurston Burlin at JanHBurlin@aol.com .

The data has been gathered from the usual sources and is believed to be correct. Please check J.D. Lewis' website at http://www.senclewises.com  . He has contributed a vast amount of data, research and time to the southeastern Lewis family. If you need more information, contact me, Doug, at JDLewis@snowhill.com . or J.D. at jdlewis@fsmc.com . I know, we have the same initials but we've never met.
