Hello Michael,

Looks like we are cousins. I'm a direct descendant of Benjamin Lewis Jr, and his son Col. Moses Lewis. Would be great to chat and compare notes!

Lewis-42660 and Lewis-10266 appear to represent the same person because: Lewis-42660 and Lewis-10266 are the same person because I made a mistake adding him in as Zuladawn Hall's 1st husband, clicking on the wrong toggle. Humbled, II am sorry.

Hi, Michael. Did you know that merge proposals do not have a set merge direction? They have a toggle switch on them -- if the two profiles have different LNABs, the person who completes the merge can choose the merge direction (unless one profile is PPP). If you have an opinion as to the merge direction for Daniel-3477, it is important to explicitly state which direction the merge should go (you have done that) and identify/provide your evidence for the LNAB.

Hi Michael,

This is to check in with you about your Blog. Are there any updates? It seems the link we have no longer works, do you have a new URL?

I’d also like to invite you to join the WikiTree Ambassadors as part of the Bloggers Team.

WikiTree Ambassadors are volunteers who have taken on the mission of spreading the WikiTree Love across a variety of channels. There are five other teams, if you have an interest in any of them in addition to the Blogging team, just let me know:

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello Azure:

Good catch. My Lewis Genealogy blog is at https://lewisgenealogy.wordpress.com/

I haven't posted much lately, but I will soon be posting about progress on my Lewis Surname One Page Study, and my new website on the Lewisiana - Lewis Letter connection.

Thanks for the poke! I'll be working on it.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for responding and for the updated URL, what we had must have contained a typo! It's been fixed on the Help:Bloggers Page. Excited to hear more about Lewisiana and your progress on the Lewis Surname.

Shall I put you down then on the Ambassadors - Bloggers Team? If so, can you send me a private message so that I have your email for the group setup?

Thanks again!

Michael, my name is Joe Morgan. My question has nothing to do with the Lewis family. I noticed you and one other member have both posted information on Capt. Daniel Doty (1701-02-1785) on your page. My mother was a Doty and her family has passed down from generation to generation that Daniel Doty & Louisa Unknown were definitely the parents of my 4th Great Grandfather David Doughty (1742-01824) who married Rachel Picket (1758-1819). My first cousin and I have spent about 10 years trying to prove this relationship. Through documentation, we provided the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, our lineage from my generation to Fourth Great Grandfather David Doughty and they accepted it but declined our information that Daniel was our 5th Great Grandfather and filed our information in a "Declined" file to preserve in case we ever find documentation to connect Daniel to David.

I notice you and someone else have posted Daniel's information on your page and think Daniel is the father of David. The Find-A-Grave link you provided thinks Daniel is David's father. For years everyone has shown Louisa's last name as "Unknonwn". David and Rachel named their 2nd and 3rd born children Daniel & Louisa. Coincidence? I think not. In the meantime, we had a male Doty first cousin send his DNA into the Family Tree DNA project and he matched exactly, marker for marker, two men who have been allowed into the society as descendants of Edward Doty of the Mayflower, which is enough proof for me but apparently not the society. Family Tree even said my cousin's DNA showed he descended from Edward's son Samuel. Do you have a source showing evidence that Daniel and Louisa Doty were the parents of David Doughty? This is what we believe to be our line but can't prove it: Edward Doty (1598-99-1655) Samuel; Doty (1643-1715) Daniel Doty (1701-02-1785) David Doughty (1742-1824) Thomas Doute, Sr, (1777-1842) Thomas Dowty, Jr. (1809-1880) William Joseph Doty (1844-1923) Charlie Emory Doty (1870-1929) Eva Frances Doty (1909-1974) Joe D. Morgan (1937- ) And yes, they all spelled Doty differently. I have been to the Moreland, OH cemetery where Thomas, Sr. and Thomas, Jr, are buried fifteen feet apart but their monuments read Doute and Dowty.

Please provide me with the evidence you found proving Daniel Doty was, indeed, David Doughty's father. I would be deeply indebted to you. Joe D. Morgan - Oklahoma

Hi Michael ~ I am writing to merge my 4th great grandfather, Truman Lewis, b 24 MAR 1774 • Litchfield, Litchfield County, Connecticut, British Colonial America, d 12 APR 1824 • Sunside, Greene County, New York, United States, My line from him descends through his son, also Truman Lewis, b 01 JUL 1806 • Green County, New York, United States, d 1858 • New York, United States. He married Sally Ann LENNON. I have entered his information and now need to either add him as a son to your Truman Lewis and delete the information I have started to enter. Please advise.

Thank you! Sylvia Harper Nelson

Hello Sylvia!

The two profiles are good as they are. My Truman Lewis has your Truman Lewis as son, with correct dates.

You can go ahead and add data and documentation to your Truman Lewis profile.

If you have more questions, you can contact me at [email address removed]

Hello Michael, hi from New Zealand! Are we cousins?
posted by Joanne Phillips

I'm a descendent of Edmund Lewis through his son, Thomas. I have DNA testing (y67 and Family Finder) through Family Tree.

I also have a group page on Facebook for this line. You can contact me at [email address removed]

Connie Byers who commented below is my cousin (confirmed) and would also be a descendent of Edmund.

Hi Michael: Don't know if you are related to us or not. Our Lewes comes from Barnstable Massachusetts. I cannot see your tree. I just wanted to pass along our possible connection. This link


that you can check this Edward from 1661. Then, you may be my relative. But not until you check it out. Then maybe, just maybe you can be my relative. Best wishes. Connie Byers

I see you added the DNA tag to your profile. Here are a few links & tips to help you along in the journey of WikiTree and DNA.

It's not hard to add DNA test information to profiles on WikiTree, just make sure you add the tests to the actual test participant's profile & set the Privacy to ‘Private w/ Public Biography & Family Tree’ to show the tester's part of our tree. For help see  How to DNA on WikiTree

Here's a great YouTube video with all sorts of questions answered Getting Started with DNA.

Michael: We have been searching for years for a Charles Lewis (1803 - 1860) married to Nancy Riley (1810 - 1880). Do you have either of these people in your tree? Thanks!

Wish you a Happy New Year. May 2018 bring you all you need to be happy.

Congratulation for adding your contributions in December. Whatever the quantity of your contributions, they all count. As I always say "Quality is better than quantity" to make a great family tree.

Thank you for being a Wikitreer,
