Thomas Lewis (1878-1888) was the son of Peter Tilman Lewis (1750-1829), a soldier of the American Revolution. Peter’s father was also named Thomas.
These images were obtained from the Peter Lewis Ancestral File in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution Library, Washington, D.C. It is said that the originals of these images were found in a trunk belonging to a woman living in Fort Worth, Texas. The trunk belonged to her grandmother. I don’t know the relationship to Peter Lewis, but assume these women were descendants.
