Swansea Resident David Henry Lewis Wills Homes To Tenants

Below is an interesting newspaper article that has been framed and displayed in my Moms house for a very long time. She has always told me that she cut it out of a newspaper because of the last name and location, but did not think it was related to anybody in our family.

Today I asked her about it in depth and took it home (with her permission) for further evaluation. She remembers cutting it out of a newspaper around 1970-1980.

So I did some research and found that the article was actually published in 1951, much earlier than when she remembers cutting it out. My Mom would have been only 25 years old when it was printed. It would not be likely that she had ANY interest in something like that at 25. Even she admits that.

Now… I am thinking that is is possible that she cut it out of the newspaper that was given to her by  family member years after it was published and had it framed. Could my Mom be confused concerning the events of her acquiring the article? Could David Henry Lewis be related?  Or could this just be a true trick of the mind who has had to remember so much.

Research indicates that David Henry Lewis died 25 Dec 1950.
