[Nationwide] MCCURDY /LEWIS CONNECTION MADE-ALSO AMBROSE LEWIS

MCCURDY/LEWIS (CANADA - COLCHESTER, ESSEX COUNTY) CONNECTION MADE - ALSO AMBROSE LEWIS (VA-REVOLUTIONARY WAR VET.)CONNECTION MADE.

JAMES LEWIS WAS THE SON OF MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDFATHER, (WILLIAM) BERRY LEWIS. IN LOOKING FOR MARRIAGE INFORMATION FOR JAMES, AND HIS MARRIAGE TO RACHEL MCCURDY (AT THE TIME BOTH RESIDENTS OF COLCHESTER,ONTARIO, CANADA), MY COUSIN, JANICE LEWIS-BOYD, SENT ME THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

I ALSO NEEDED CONFIRMATION THAT MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDFATHER, (WILLIAM) BERRY LEWIS WAS THE SON OF REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN, AMBROSE LEWIS. ONE OF MY ANCESTORS, THE FORMER FAMILY HISTORIAN, STATED THAT ONE OF BERRY'S SONS' MIDDLE NAME WAS BERRY'S FATHER'S FIRST NAME. NOTE: JAMES LEWIS' MIDDLE IS "AMBROSE." THE GAP CLOSES BUT I WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION.
