The Descendents of Samuel Lewis and ? of New Hanover County, NC

Samuel Lewis was born in what is present-day Town Creek, Brunswick County, NC circa 1730 (at that time, it was considered part of New Hanover County).

He apparently followed his older brother, Josiah Lewis, to Bladen County, NC because he shows up as a witness in many of the early land transactions of the 1750s. However, Samuel Lewis does not remain in Bladen County after the 1750s.

It appears that this Samuel Lewis moved to Duplin County (what is now Sampson County), NC in the early 1760s and settled.

The following children listed are "educated guesses" as descendents of this Samuel Lewis since the Author has been unable to "prove" their parentage. But, based on grandchildren names and other factors, this "educated guess" is fairly accurate.
