John Williams LEWIS, Scotland to Port Arthur, 1924

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 2:46PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Lewis Williams Bisset Main Doucett
Born 30 July 1888 to Richard Watson Lewis and Ann CLARK, in Scotland. Emigrated to Canada 1924. On emigration entry form, stated he would be joining brother-in-law James MAIN in Port Arthur. Married to Elizabeth (birth surname not known), father of Herbert M. Lewis. Ancestry's Canadian voters lists indicate that the LEWIS and MAIN families lived near each other. John's occupation was government weighman. Other on-line research indicates that "Bert" Lewis married Laura DOUCETT in 1938, served in the RCAF in WW2 and died in 1986. (I have just requested copies of Bert's obit, and also one for an Elizabeth Lewis who died in 1948). Would be very interested in sharing information with descendants of this family--John Williams Lewis my 2nd cousin once removed. His great grandparents/my gg grantparents were William WILLIAMS and Elizabeth BISSET of Aberdeen, Scotland.
