Message Board Post:


I am very interested in comparing notes with you on Colonel John McGee. He was my 6th great grandfather. His daughter by his first wife, Nancy Ann McGee (c.1753-1832), married Robert Lindsay (d. 1801) in 1772. Their son William Lindsay (c.1777-1841) married Elisabeth Briggs (c.1784-1871) in Feb., 1807. Their daughter Guilianna Lindsay (Dec. 29, 1807-1885) married Elswick S. Field (born c. 1807/8) in 1831. Their son John Andrew Field (1846-1883) married Mary Adeline Wilkinson (1846-1906) in 1865. Their son Ernest Marion Field (1866-1904) married Mary Rhetta Bell (1862-1947) in 1888. Their son John Levi Field (1902-1963) was my grandfather. I never knew him as he died before I was born.


I was also interested to see that your name is Julian, as that name has early connections with my Field line in Randolph & Guilford Counties. Elswick Field, listed above, was the son of Jeremiah Field (c. 1764-1830) and Eleanor Sherwood. Jeremiah was the son of William Field, Jr. (born before 1727-d. 1805) and his wife Lydia, maiden name unknown. William Field had a brother Joseph (born after 1727, died c. 1780) who married Lydia Julian. After Joseph's death, Lydia married an Armfield. For a long time, because two brothers married ladies named Lydia, I thought the Julian line was in my ancestry.


Best Regards,
John Field Pankow
Asheville, NC

William LEWIS

ABT 1600 - ____

ID Number: I70524

  • OCCUPATION: Huguenot family
  • RESIDENCE: FR; Wales; IRE
  • BIRTH: ABT 1600
  • RESOURCES: See: notes [S2693]
Father: Robert LEWIS


Family 1 :
  1. +Andrew LEWIS

Notes


The Lewis ARMS Arms-Argent, a dragon's head and neck erased, vertical, holding in the mouth a bloody hand proper. Crest-A dragon's head and neck erased vertical. Motto-Omne solum, forti patria est.


It is a question very often discussed of late as to whether the hour makes the man or the man the hour. To a student of the history of Virginia an answer is very soon given, for since the settlement of Jamestown, in 1607, which was virtually the birth of this country, there has never arisen a crisis of any kind when Virginia, our mother State, has not had one or more of her sons ready to meet it. When the hour arrives the man appears. We may search the pages of history in vain for a nobler or as noble a group of men as Washington and his patriot Virginians in 1776.



The Lewis family of Virginia is one of the most distinguished families in the State. It is connected by marriage with many of the best-known names, such as Washington, Marshall, Fielding, Merriweather, Daingerfield, Taliaferro and others. The men of the family from the time when they first settled in the colony, about the middle of the seventeenth century, have been men of action and distinction; they have won for themselves the most remarkable record as soldiers. It is recorded on the tombstone of "Pioneer John" that he furnished five sons for the Revolution. There were five colonels in the Revolution-Colonel Nicholas, Colonel Fielding, Colonel William, Colonel Charles and Colonel Joel-and quite a number of majors and captains. The Lewises also won a gallant record in the War of 1812, the Mexican War and in the Confederate States Army.


The Lewis family were originally French Huguenots, and left France after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, 1685. Three brothers-namely, William, Samuel and John-fled to England. (See Smiles' "History of the Huguenots.") Shortly afterwards William removed to the north of Ireland, where he married a Miss McClelland; Samuel fixed his residence in Wales, while John continued in England. Descendants of each of these three brothers are supposed to have settled in Virginia.


About the middle of the seventeenth century four brothers of the Lewis family left Wales. I. Samuel Lewis, went to Portugal; nothing is known of him. II. William Lewis, d. in Ireland. III. General Robert Lewis, d. in Gloucester Co., Va. IV. John Lewis, d. in Hanover Co., Va.


1. I. William Lewis((1)), one of the Welsh brothers; d. in Ireland. Married Miss McClelland and left one son: 2. I. Andrew Lewis((2)). Married Miss Calhoun. Issue: 3. I. John Lewis((3)), b. 1678, in Ireland. Married Margaret Lynn. 4. II. Samuel Lewis((2)), b. 1680. No issue.

Notes


"Col. Robert Enoch Withers, of Wytheville, Va., is the eldest son of Dr. Robert Walter Withers and Susan D. Alexander, of Campbell Co., Va. He was born September 18, 1821, at "Rock Castle," Campbell Co., and educated in county schools, Woodburn Classical School and the University of Virginia, from which institution he was graduated with the title of Doctor of Medicine in July 1841, before he was twenty years of age. He afterwards had an appointment as one of the resident physicians at the Baltimore Alms House Hospital, which he filled for nearly a year. Then practiced medicine in his native county, Campbell, until 1858, when he removed to Danville, Va., and continued the practice until the commencement of the war.


On February 3, 1846, he married Mary Virginia Royall, the oldest daughter of Joseph E. Royall and Elizabeth Gwatkin, of Lynchburg Va., who was born January 13, 1827. They had twelve children, whose names will appear hereafter. (See Johnston, Callaway, Royal Families, Chapter XX.)


On April 23, 1861, Robert E. Withers left an infant eight hours old and went to Richmond, Virginia, in command of two volunteer companies, and was mustered into the military service of the State as Major of a Battalion. He served through the war, having been appointed Colonel of the 18th Regiment of Virginia Volunteers, which he commanded at the first Battle of Manassas, and all the subsequent actions, until June 27, at Gaines' Mill, he received several severe wounds, which disabled him from active service. He was put on the Invalid Corps, and assigned to the command of the Prison Post at Danville, Va., where six to eight thousand prisoners were confined. This post he surrendered to Gen'l Wright, of the 6th Army Corps, about two weeks after Gen'l Lee's surrender at Appomattox.


In January 1866, he was appointed first editor of the Lynchburg Daily News, which soon became the leading paper of that section of the State.


He was nominated for Governor by the Conservative Convention in Richmond in May 1868, and canvassed the State of Virginia in the effort to secure the defeat of the "- Constitution," just promulgated by the "Black and Tan Convention," as it was called, and so successful was this canvass that the military authorities refused to appoint a day for the clection to be held.


The next year he withdrew in favor of Gilbert C. Walker, who, as a "Liberal Republican," had been nominated, and who was elected by a large majority. In 1870, he accepted the place of General Agent of the University Publishing Co., and canvassed the State in the effort to secure the adoption of the school books published by that company for use in the public free schools of the State. A large majority of the counties in the State selected them for use.


In 1872 he was unanimously nominated as Lieutenant Governor of the State, after having closely contested, with Gen'l James L. Kemper, the nomination for Governor.


He accepted the second place and canvassed the State, and the ticket was elected by an overwhelming majority. In 1883-4 he was elected, by the Legislature of Virginia, Senator of the United States and served six years in that body.


He was defeated for re-election by Gen'l William Mahone, the leader of the Readjuster Party in Virginia, who on entering the Senate affiliated with the Republicans.


In 1885 Col. Withers was appointed Consul to Hong Kong, during Mr. Cleveland's first administration, and served in that position until the inauguration of Gen'l Harrison, when he resigned and returned to Virginia. He served as States Elector in the presidential canvass of 1868, when Gen'l Grant was elected. He retired to private life in 1889, after his service in Hong Kong. He had held all the offices in the various Masonic orders of the State of Virginia, and was elected Grand Master of Knights Templars of the United States, in San Francisco, in 1883, serving until 1886, when he came from Hong Kong to attend the St. Louis Conclave. He was for some years one of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution and has since 1871 been one of the Lay Deputies to the General Conventions of the Protestant Episcopal Church at all the triennial sessions of that body, except those held while he was absent from the United States."
