Thank you for your reply. I have seen this query before, and you are right in that it is very confusing. I don't know where to go to try to untangle all this. I can't figure out the path of migration for the Joseph C. LEWIS family. I'm also wondering if this was a plural marriage as opposed to a marriage, divorce and remarriage on the part of Joseph C. LEWIS. Or perhaps the family was from RI and part went to NY and part went to MI after the Revolutionary War. You are the first person to offer help from MI and I thank you very much. Any idea is appreciated.
