Hi Janet,
There were several William Lewis in Virginia. I have definite records of him in Loudoun County, VA before the Rev War. Right after the Rev War he lived in Pendleton District, South Carolina. Then about 1809 he removed to White County,Tennessee where he died in 1812. I have been to his grave.. There are Lewis descendants in SC and White Co., TN. today but I don't know any of them..

There was a William Terrill Lewis that fought in the Rev War and he had bounty land in White County., TN but these are two different William Lewis .

The Lewis family listed below is not kin to mine. My William's children is well documented on. We just don't know where William was born. We figure he was born around 1740. He married Mary John ,daughter of Thomas John in Loudoun County, VA.
