Lewis/Philips Roots North Carolina

Hello, my name is Chelsi and I'm trying to trace descendants from my great uncles and aunts out of Lower fishing creek/ Edgecombe, NC. My Lewis roots stem from Isaac and Jane Lewis and they had 8 children: Rufus, Amanda, Charles, Rachael, Harry(my great grandfather), James, Frank and Willis.

Census 1880

So far, I was only to trace my great uncle Rufus's (Eliza/wife) lineage: Francis, Katie, Joanna, Winnie, Martha, Emma, Lee, Flora and Mary (she died as a child 1yr and 4 months old).

Census (Rufus household) 1910

Census 1920

Grandma Francis Philips (yes w/1 L) was also born and raised in North Carolina. Her parents were Jessie and Pheby Philip. They had 5 children: Ida, Francis(my great grandmother), Cory, Haywood and Isaac. I was able to trace anything on them.

If this rings a bell lets talk!
