Subject: WILLIAM LEWIS - WASHINGTON CO. NC (TN) 1750-1838
Hello Karen I wrote to Joseph Payne about the possible connection of SOLOMON LEWIS and FIELDING LEWIS, in Claiborne Co TN, both had come from North Carolina and were of similar age. FIELDING LEWIS (PLF:8L225) was born 15 May 1768 in Virginia, but raised in Wilkes Co.NC by his uncle GEORGE LEWIS= (PLF:833L100).=20
SOLOMON LEWIS (PLF:570L100),was born in Cumberland Co.NC 1750. He was living in Surry Co.NC, at the time of his first enlistment in the Revolutionary War, and served several 3-6 month enlistments, amounting to a total time of 2 years 6 months. He was supposed to have been at Kings Mt. and the Guilford Court House battles. This would have put him in the general area of NW NC and East Tenn. in 1780. He was also married to CATHERINE MOON in 1780 in NC, but no record as yet, except his pension claim. CATHERINE MOON was also born in Cumberland Co.NC in 1759. After the war, (no dates), he moved to Henry Co.VA., then he moved to Washington Co.TN, in the Greasy Cove area, next to or with, WILLIAM LEWIS. SOLOMON LEWIS shows up at the estate sale of THOMAS HOWELL, in 1806, with WILLIAM LEWIS, and on the taxables in 1807 and pays taxes on 100 acres.
This WILLIAM LEWIS (PLF:555L100) has been my target and, I believe, my ggggrandfather. SOLOMON LEWIS had two daughters, ELIZABETH"POLLY"LEWIS (b. 1 Jan 1781) and CATHERINE"MOLLY"LEWIS (b.ca1782). They married DAVID ROGERS (b 3Oct1779) and WILLIAM ROGERS (b.ca1778),respectively, and moved to the Speedwell area of Claiborne Co.TN, with their husbands father, JOHN ROGERS (b.ca1750) originally from Wythe Co.VA. JOHN ROGERS supposedly, also fought at Kings Mt and lived in Washington Co.TN prior to moving to Speedwell in 1798-99. JOHN ROGERS is said to have had three wives, with a total of 25 children. His first wife was supposed to have been a BRITTIAN (BRITTON), the second an ASHER, and the third is unknown.There is record of JOHN ROGERS marrying ELIZABETH ASHER in Washington Co.TN, 17 Jan 1788 (Wash Co. Wills & Marriages Vol.O, pg 110). DAVID and WILLIAM ROGERS stayed in the area of Speedwell, with their families, but many of the children moved to Missouri, Virginia and other parts of TN.=20
Some time after 1807 SOLOMON and CATHERINE LEWIS moved from Washington Co. to the Speedwell area of Claiborne Co., living with, or near, DAVID and ELIZABETH (LEWIS) ROGERS the rest of their lives. JOHN ROGERS died 5 Jan 1822, and never applied for a pension. SOLOMON LEWIS applied, and was allowed a pension, 22 Dec1832,claim R-6309. SOLOMON and CATHERINE had more children than the two daughters, but the only other LEWIS in the Speedwell area was SOLOMON LEWIS JR in the 1830 census (Cl-143), next to JOHN ROGERS JR (Cl-143), both ages 30-40, with families. No record of other children. SOLOMON LEWIS SR was living near DAVID and WILLIAM ROGERS families (Cl-138-139) in 1830 census. SOLOMON LEWIS died 6 Mar 1843, at the age of 97 years. CATHERINE LEWIS died 25 Aug 1845 at the age of 86 years.There was mention that a grandson lived in Missouri, when SOLOMON died in 1843. JESS ROGERS was the administrator of CATHERINE"S estate, no relationship recorded, but believe he was her grandson. =20
WILLIAM LEWIS (PLF: 555L100) of Greasy Cove,Washington Co.NC, was born ca 1750-55. There could be a link with WILLIAM and SOLOMON in Cumberland or Bladen Co's NC. WILLIAM LEWIS first shows up on the Wills and Inventories of WASH. Co. NC, at the Estate sale of JACOB BROWN in april of 1786. August of 1786 William Lewis shows up on the voters roll in Jonesboro,Wash.Co. NC. WILLIAM LEWIS has a Land Grant of 440 acres on Cedar Creek, next to PHAROAH COBBS line, then south to YOUNGS line, then east to WARDS line and then north to starting point.This land grant was transcribed by the entry taker, No.780, on 7 Aug 1787 to ROBERT LUCAS, but in fact, the North Carolina Archives have No.780 listed, and granted, to WILLIAM LEWIS.The same day NATHAN LEWIS was granted 200 acres on Gap Creek, No 776. No relationship has been established between them,if any exists. Pat Alderman, who was a local Historian for UNICOI Co, which is part of the area of the old Greasy Cove, stated that "most of the early Greasy Cove residents had participated in the battle at Kings Mt." WILLIAM LEWIS is on all the taxable lists , that survived between 1788 and 1811. In 1788 WILLIAM LEWIS'S neighbors on the tax rolls were, JAMES WARD, JOHN YOUNG, and JOSEPH YOUNG. These were taken in CAPT GUDGERS district by ROBERT LOVE, also a King Mt. veteran and prominent in Washington Co politics.=20
Though I can't find any records of pension, or application for pension for WILLIAM LEWIS, I'm sure he was very active in the local militia, which was headed primarly by COL JOHN SEVIERS. In the spring and summer of 1793, there were increased attacks on isolated settlers in Washington Co. and Col John Sevier gathered a large unit of mounted militia and headed south to the Cherokee settlements and towns, and to the Battle of Etowah. SEVIER left approximately the 25 Sept 1793. On the 10 Oct 1793, while Mr WILLIAM LEWIS was away from home, a band of twenty eight Indians,in the early morning, attacked and killed MRS LEWIS and five of her seven children. One son managed to get away to the cane brakes along Indian Creek and make his way to the Blockhouse in the Temple Hill area. He reported the attack to a young Lt NATHANIEL TAYLOR, who pursued the Indians to the French Broad River, but without success.=20
The Indians took a young daughter of WILLIAM LEWIS, who was later ransomed for a rifle and some powder. This was recorded in the Knoxville Gazette, 23 Nov 1793, Vol.2 No.25,pg 3, col.1-2, and in 2 Jan 1794, Vol.3 No. 2, pg 2, col.1-2 . WILLIAM LEWIS's house and barn were burned down by the Indians during the attack and were located on the south end of Indian Creek . There is a Creek named "GRANNY LEWIS", where his farm was supposedly located, that runs into Indian Creek. The 1799 taxables list WILLIAM LEWIS SR and WILLIAM LEWIS JR. This is the only reference to the son who escaped and reported the massacre. I dont know the name of MRS LEWIS or any of the children that were killed. The daughter who was ransomed was supposedly MARY 'POLLY' LEWIS born ca 1790. MARY LEWIS married CANADY RIGSBY (WRIGSBY) in Carter Co. in 1809. WILLAIM LEWIS SR , as was tradition, remarried very soon after the incident. His second wife name was SARAH 'SALLIE'_________. They started a second family that produced three more daughters and three more sons.WILLIAM LEWIS, by his first marriage, had WILLIAM LEWIS JR (b ca 1778) and MARY"POLLY"LEWIS (b ca1790). The first child born of his second wife is uncertain, but I think it was LOUCRETIA LEWIS (b ca 1794-95) -This is totally unsubstantiated! =20
Next was ELIZABETH "BETSEY" LEWIS (b 1796), BENJAMIN LEWIS (b1798), HIRAM LEWIS (b1800), RUSSELL LEWIS (b 1804) , KESIAH LEWIS (b 1807). WILLIAM LEWIS JR married unknown-possibly lived in Knox Co. MARY 'POLLY' LEWIS married CANADY RIGSBY, Carter Co TN 1809. LOUCRETIA LEWIS married unknown,possibly JOHN JULIN (JULIAN)Knox Co TN. ELIZABETH 'BETSEY' LEWIS married JOHN HUTCHINS (HUTCHINGS) White Co TN,ca 1814. BENJAMIN LEWIS married CHARITY-------------- ca 1820, possibly White Co TN.HIRAM LEWIS married ELIZABETH JANE CAROLINE KIRK,ca1821 White Co TN. RUSSELL LEWIS married DELILAH MOORE, ca 1830 White Co,Rutherford CoTN. KESIAH LEWIS married JOHN RIGBSY, ca 1825 White Co TN.
The next record WILLIAM LEWIS appears in is 1806, on the 27th-28th of June, at THOMAS HOWELLS Estate Sale and SOLOMON LEWIS is also there. This was recorded in the Wills and Inventories of Washington Co TN, pgs 179-180. WILLIAM LEWIS bought one old Razor and one old Bed Tick, while SOLOMON LEWIS bought 5 Bushels corn. CHARLES HUTCHINS was there, his son JOHN HUTCHINS married ELIZABETH"BETSEY" LEWIS, WILLIAMS daughter. THOMAS RIGSBY was there with JAMES RIGSBY. Two of WILLIAM LEWIS' daughters marry RIGSBYS. JOHN DILLARD and ROBERT LOVE were there also.The HUTCHINS ,DILLARDS and LOVES had married into each others families and were close. They were from Culpepper Co. VA .Unfortunately I've been unable to link any connection to these three families with WILLIAM LEWIS, until they all arrive in Washington Co NC(TN) in the 1790's.=20
There was a Will from Bath Co NC-"Abstracts of Wills-1690-1760" by GRIMES, and lists: WILLIAM LEWIS- Wife -MARY LEWIS 1731-5 AUG 1732-Sons: WILLIAM LEWIS JR & SOLOMON LEWIS. Daughters: ELIZABETH (LEWIS) SINCLAIR, MARY (LEWIS) DUDLEY, MAGDALENE (LEWIS) BIGFORD, & EDITH ' EDY' (LEWIS) BENSON - There is the possibility that the families are connected.The names of HANSON LEWIS (PLF:15L922) ,in relationship to JOSIAH LEWIS (PLF: 15L936),JAMES LEWIS (PLF:15L937b) AARON LEWIS (PLF: 15L937a) are recorded in BLADEN Co in the 1763 Census. HANSON LEWIS shows up as follows:' Deeds 10 May 1794 of New Brunswick Co. NC, 120 acres on "OLD TOWNE CREEK", part of 320 acres Patented to WILLIAM LEWIS, 9 Dec 1735. JOSIAH LEWIS SR had deeded SARA SMITH 100 acres, and SOLOMON LEWIS purchased 120 acres, with the remainder 100 acres as HANSON LEWIS'S.' Again, there is only name linkage and commonnality, but no substantiating records. Back to WILLIAM LEWIS of Greasy Cove,TN, I find him on the taxables until 1811, at which time he and the RIGSBYS, HUTCHINS and probably others, moved to White Co,in the Cedar Creek area,outside of Sparta TN. Again, he is found on the Taxables for 1812 for WhiteCo and several Deeds and Land Grants are listed in the next few years. The 1820 & 1830 Census's shows the HUTCHINS, RIGSBYS, JULIANS and LEWIS's in the same general area of White Co,and that they purchased lands in WARREN Co and DEKALB Co. WILLIAM LEWIS died Aug 1838 and his will was probated at that time. BENJAMIN LEWIS was the Executor of the Estate. WILLIAM was possibly buried in the NORRIS- POLLARD-BAIN Cemetery by Walling, White Co ,TN, no markers were found. The Will mentions the children of his second marriage and three grandsons that were living with him. The grandsons were DENNIS JULIN (JULIAN), JAMES W. JULIN and GEORGE W. JULIN . These three JULINS (JULIAN) grandchildren are thought to have been LOUCRETIA'S, again= speculation.
The following names are of interest in Washington Co NC(TN) area,during the 1770's-1800's:JOHN LEWIS, JAMES LEWIS SR & JR, NATHAN LEWIS, AARON LEWIS, NATHANIEL LEWIS,TURLES or (SURLES) LEWIS, 'KAN' (RIGSBY) FOSTER, WILLIAM & JOHN BLEVINS, GEORGE CLOUSE, CHARLES HUTCHINS, THOMAS RIGSBY, ROBERT LOVE, ZACARIAH ISBELL, GEORGE & WILLIAM RUSSELL, JOHN ROGERS, SOLOMON LEWIS.

The William Lewis from New Hanover County you mention in your website is my direct ancestor. This is not the same William Lewis that lived in Washington Co. William Lewis,Jr.'s children were James, Mary, Jane, Jacob, and William III.
Hope this helps in your search. I am currently working on getting our Lewis genealogy on line.

"FIRST SETTLERS ON CLINCH AND IN POWELL'S VALLEY, CLAIBORNE COUNTY"
"The Act establishing CLAIBORNE COUNTY (from parts of HAWKINS & GRAINGER) was passed October 29, 1801.
"The first settlements in Claiborne County were mde in POWELL'S VALLEY and along Clinch RIVER. Two Hundred Thousand acres of the lands included in the boundaries had been granted to HENDERSON & CO. under the terms of the settlement made with them.
"The County was named for WILLIAM CHARLES COLE CLAIBORNE, one of the first Judges of the Superior Court and the first member of the U.S. Congress from Tennessee.
"When the County was laid off, according to its boundaries, it included the lands theretofore obtained by purchase or otherwise by persons who had obtained such lands when they were a part of Hawkins County, of which they were also original settlers. It also included original settlers of the then GRAINGER COUNTY, who likewise had obtained their lands taken up when it was part of HAWKINS COUNTY. These facts explain why it is that some of the first settlers of CLAIBORNE COUNTY had also been first settlers of HAWKINS AND GRAINGER counties.
"Following is a list of the first magistrates of CLAIBORNE COUNTY, who were present at the house of JOHN OWENS in December, 1801, when the court of pleas and quarter sessions was organized:
"1. ISAAC LANE 2. JOSEPH WEBSTER 3. WILLIAM TRENT' 4. JAMES CHISHOLM 5. ABRAHAM LENHAM 6. JOHN WALLING 7. MATTHEW SIMS 8. JOHN VAN BIBBER 9. WILLIAM ROGERS 10. GEORGE READ 11. C. NEWPORT 12. JOSEPH NATIONS 13. JOHN CASEY 14. JAMES RENFRO
"The oath of office was administered to those persons gy ANDREW EVANS and JOSEPH COBBS, of GRAINGER COUNTY. The officers of the new County selected at this meeting were:
"ISAAC LANE, Chairman WALTER EVANS, Clerk NATHANIEL AUSTIN, Ranger JOSEPH NATIONS, Coroner EZEKIEL CRAFT, Register LUKE BOWYER, Attorney General *DAVID ROGERS, Sheriff
"*DAVID ROGERS failed to make bond, and JOHN HUNT, SR. was therupon elected to fill the vacancy thus created in the office of Sheriff.
"The next term of the court was held at the house of JOHN HUNT, who lived on the site of TAZEWELL. A town to be called TAZEWELL was selected as the county seat, and it was laid off and estblished on JOHN HUNT"S land.
"LUKE BOWYER came tothe settlement very early. He had been one of the first settlers of the WATAUGA SETTLEMENT.
"The first grand jury selected for the county were: JOHN HUNT WILLIAM GRISSON NATHANIEL AUSTIN SAMUEL TATE JACOB DOBBINS WILLIA BOWMAN WILLIAM STROUD JOHN WEBSTER NIMROD DODSON PETER NEAL THOMAS GIBBONS PETER HUFFAKER WILLIAM RUSH THOMAS JEFFERS HEZEKIAH JORDAN ELISHA WALLING** ARCHIBALD McKINNEY GEORGE SNUFFER
The third meeting of the court was held at the house of ELISHA WALLING. Commissioners to erect a jail in 1819 were:
JOSIAH C. RAMSEY ROBERT CROCKETT JOHN EVANS DAVID ROGERS WILLIAM RENFRO REUBEN ROGERS"
P. 196 "DAVID ROGERS OF CLAIBORNE COUNTY AND HIS FAMILY CONNECTIONS
DAVID ROGERS, who was the first Sheriff elected by teh County Court in Claiborne County in 1801, but who resigned his right to the office in favor of JOH HUNT, SR>< who was elected to serve in his place, was born in WYTHE COUNTY, Virginia (or what is now Wythe County) about the year 1777, and lived to the age of 94 years.
DAVID ROGERS was possibly the son of that certain JOHN ROGERS, who at session of the WASHINGTON COUNTY COURT on the 28th day AUGUST 1778 (American Historical Magazine, Vol 5, page 356) was mentioned in the following order:
Ordered, that a commission issue to JOHN COULTER and ISAAC SHELBY, Esq. to take the deposition of RUTH MORRIS, LYDIA CROSS, MARY TYE, and JOHN CROCKETT on behalf of JOHN RODGERS, defendant, the State Plaintiff.
The JOHN CROCKETT mentioned in this order, was the father of DAVID CROCKETT, the "hero of the Alamo, who was born several years after this order was passed.
Information about this ROGERS family is very meager. It is mere tradition that DAVID ROGERS was born in WYTHE County, Virginia, and that he was born in 1777. He may have been born earlier, and he may have been born in Washington County, or somewhere on the Watauga, since his father was undoubtedly there in 1778. It looks like, considering all the records available that JOHN ROGERS had children:
1. DAVID ROGERS 9 b. 1777-9) married MARY ELIZABETH LEWIS, b. GUILFORD CO>< NC, 1781 & died Claiborne Co., 1880 in her 100th year. 2. REUBEN ROGERS, of Claiborne Co., about the same time. 3. HUGH ROGERS married NANCY THORNTON of GREENE COUNTY, Oct. 1, 1788. 4. JAMES ROGERS married RHODA ALEXANDER, 1793, Washington Co. 5. JOHN ROGERS married ELIZABETH ASHER, Washington Co., 1788. 6. ROBERT ROGERS m. HANNAH TIPTON, Washington Co., 1793.
"DAVID ROGERS AND JESSE ROGERS SONS OF DAVID OF CLAIBORNE
"DAVID ROGERS in Claiborne County in 1801, and who married MARY ELIZABETH LEWIS (dau of AARON LEWIS of Watauga) had these children:
