I've also been told I'm related to Jerry Lee, Mickey and Jimmy on my dad's side. But that's all I know. My dad's mother dad died when he was 7 or 8. His mother was Mattie Elizabeth Hough and his dad was Thomas Walter Lewis. Sum total of all I know since dad died in 91.

Wes,
Have you gotten birth or death certificates on any family members? These sometime help as they have listed parents of subject and also where subject was born and where parents were born. They are not always right but it is worth a shot. Please contact me at lakota@supernet.com - I have some Gilley and Lewis info - don't know about Jimmy Swaggart yet; his Mother must have been a Gilley or Lewis.

I have a book on the Gilley family tree that takes the ancestry all of the way back to Francis Gilley in the 1700's. Which branch spawned Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley and Jimmy Swaggert?

Surnames: Lewis, Gilley, Swaggart
I am not related to any of these celebrities, but I did a quick lookup on Wikipedia. In case you don't already have this information, this is the condensed version of what Wikipedia has:

Lewis was born [Sept. 29, 1935] to Elmo and Mamie Lewis in Ferriday in Concordia Parish in eastern Louisiana, and began playing piano in his youth with two cousins, country music singer Mickey Gilley and TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart.

Mickey Leroy Gilley was born [March 9, 1936] to Arthur Fillmore Gilley and Irene (Lewis) Gilley in Natchez, Adams County, western Mississippi. Gilley lived just across the Mississippi River from Louisiana where Lewis grew up. Gilley, Lewis, and another cousin Jimmy Swaggart played piano together as children.
Jimmy Swaggart was born [March 15, 1935] in Ferriday, Louisiana, to Willie Leon (a.k.a., "Son") and Minnie Belle (née Herron) Swaggart. With his parents, Swaggart attended a small, 25-member Assemblies of God congregation in Ferriday. On October 10, 1952, Swaggart married Frances Anderson. Their son, Donnie, was born in 1954.
