|Comments:||Looks like we have something in common though I do not yet find a common link in our names.
I have a 25 marker DNA match with a Dr. Chris Morgan from the U.K. whose family lived along the Wales border and in Wales. All of my folks here in the States have the surname Lewis.
So we have the Morgan.....Lewis connection confirmed with DNA.

|Comments:||You have done a wonderful job of relating local and world events in your history of your branch of the Lewis family. My father is 93 and still lives in Wales and I've begun working on our Lewis family history My greatgrandfather William T.Lewis was born in Mynyddislwyn in 1848. He had six sons William, Lewis,David,Daniel,Bryn, Wyndham. The three oldest were born in Bedwellty. One of the younger brothers, Wyndham was a mountain fighter,and later a boxing promoter in Pontypridd. He had a colourful life. He fought in Australia, kept the Lion in Treorchy, and was for a while a bookmaker. You mentioned the prevelance of Thomas in the Lewis family. I belive my g.grandfather's name was William Thomas Lewis. |
