After my first experience at the New York City Records Archives, I took a short trip on the subway to Brooklyn where the Green-Wood Cemetery is.
After a VERY LONG walk on a 90+ degree day, I found the area where the plot for ten lewis’s was supposed to be. It took me over 20 minutes to find the grave stone, even with the help of a plot map. The stone is wedged between two shady trees and only contains the names of Anna Roche Lewis and Henry William Lewis. Since there were ten lewis’s there, I expected something a little larger.
So, buried in Green-Wood Hill Cemetery are:
- Anna Roche Lewis
- John Henry Lewis
- Walter F. Lewis (Don’t now how he fits in yet… stay tuned)
- John Lewis
- Joesephone (Mary Jo) Lewis
- margaret F. Lewis
- Andrew J. Lewis
- Catherine Hanley Lewis
- Bertam E. Lewis
- Sidney V. Lewis
