Another record of interest is the 1797 will of William Price proved 1807 in Patrick County, where he lists his daughters:

Joice Lewis
Nancy Lewis
Sally Lewis

Charles left a will and mentions his children. No will for Edward or James has been found.

Edward and Nancy’s family can be deduced as follows:

Morris Lewis  b. 1786
Alvin Lewis  b. 1788
Andrew Lewis  b. 1790
Edward Lewis  b. 1796
Samuel Lewis  b. 1801
Elizabeth Lewis b. 1805

James and Sally’s family can be deduced as follows:

Elizabeth Lewis  b. 1813

Other considerations:

There are three other males named Lewis in the record. They are:

1. Benjamin, born about 1775 only mentioned once in the record
2. Sampson, born about  1820 son of George Lewis of Bedford
3. William, born 1825 not placed but likely a grandson of Charles of Patrick County
