      I am SO GLAD we got connected !! I started, thanks to the letter I referred to, with Elinor Lewis(b.1821) who married Owen Edwards( b.1817) and found their marriage. The letter doesn't say the name of my g-g-grandfather who another public tree named Bento-Crook Family Tree, who starts with my g-grandfather, Hugh Lewis(b.1839Wales) and his brother, David Lewis(b. 1841Wales) names my g-g-grandfather as David Lewis who married Mary Hughes(b.1812 Penegoes, Montgomeryshire).. I don't think either of us are too sure of David or Mary Hughes. I found Mary on an 1851 Wales Census as a widow with Hugh and David as sons. After David? died in 1846 Mary married twice before her son, Hugh's, marriage in 1864. I have the marriage certificate with a witness as Mary Hughes and the other as William P. Williams, my g-grandmother's father. Do you have any thoughts ?


      The (L5) Edwards/Lewis tree are descendants of Owen Edwards(b.1817Llanuwchllyn, Merionethshire) who married Elinor Lewis.

      Hi Ann,

      Thanks for that. I can now see your your tree. That's one part of
      Ancestry I've never noticed before as I have most of my links to their pages on my own toolbar. I have just added the Member Directory link as it could prove very useful in the future. Thank you.

      I see you have done an enormous amount of work on the Lewis family. Have you used many other sites beside Ancestry? I see that many of the records are available on findmypast so I well rejoin them for a spell.

      I spent a very short time in Tampa Bay whilst I was working for a small computer firm. I loved every minute of it. Perhaps one day I'll get back there again....

      Thanks again for your help and if there is anything I can help you with from over here just ask.

      Best wishes,

      Phil.

      Hi Ann,

      It's impossible to search for an Ancestry tree by name. Could you please send me the link to your tree?

      Thanks.

      Phil.

      I have a public tree on ancestry.com that I'm working on. The name of the tree is "Lewis." I'll send the letter after I get it on my tree.

      Thanks, Ann

      Hi Ann.
      I don't have any information on Hugh Lewis's parentage or siblings, which is why you can't connect to them.
      Perhaps you would be kind enough to email a copy of the letter you mention along with any family information you are aware of so that I can add it to the tree?
      It's not clear from your messages who Lewis and Owen Edwards are, perhaps you could enlighten me? Do you know who the parents of Elinor and Hugh Lewis were?

      Best wishes,

      Phil.

      I haven't been able to connect them to your tree, but my great grandmother is Anna E. Williams Lewis born 26 October 1845 in Wales. Her parents are William P.(Philip) Williams (b.1818 in Flam, Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, Wales) and Rachel (maiden name unknown)(b.1821 in Llangadock, Pembrokeshire, Wales).

      In your tree Hugh Lewis born "about 1811" who married Elizabeth "Betty" Humphreys born "about 1811" is my g-g-grandfather's brother. I have a letter from Lewis Edwards noteing the relationship between Elinor Lewis (who married Owen Edwards) and her brother, Hugh Lewis. The letter mentions Uncle Hugh y Garthfach as is noted on Hugh Lewis' profile on your tree.
