Excerpt from Genealogy of the Lewis Family in America: Family From the Middle of the of Century Down to the Present Time Were it our fault we would offer an apology for the many errors and omissions doubtless to be found in this little volume but we have spared pains r expense in our efforts to procure every name and all the information relative to the Lewis family in America. Hundreds to whom we wrote never responded to our interrogatories; and many who did, withheld the information asked at their hands, and excused themselves by saying that they knew but little about the family, and that it looked too much like egotism to speak or write eulogistically of themselves.
