Re: [AL] Hattie Lewis
In Response To: [AL] Hattie Lewis ()

: Hello,

: I am looking for information on my grandmother Hattie Lewis. Willie
: Lewis is listed on the death certificate, but there was no
: mother listed. She was born about 1912 because she died in 1950
: and on the death certificate, it said she was about 38 years
: old. I think that her mother died early (guessing about
: 1919-1921). In the census of 1930 her sister, Juliette Lewis was
: in the household of Lucy and Dock Jones, Bessemer Twps,
: Jefferson County, AL as 10 years old. The story that I have
: right now is that the other children, Mary, Willie Lewis Jr.,
: and my grandma Hattie remained in Perry County, supposedly with
: the other grandma (Willie Sr. mother). I don't know her name,
: but have looked in the 1920 and 1930 Heritage Quest census, and
: have not been able to find any of these children. I even looked
: to see if there was an orphanage or something, and came up with
: a blank. Any info regarding my grandma Hattie Lewis is
: appreciated. My grandma was married to Ike Underwood and I think
: she was his second wife.

: I have sent away for Willie Jr., her brother's, SS5 application,
: maybe that will give me their mother's name. Did an Death Index
: lookup for her, but found nothing. My mother said that as far as
: she knows, she never worked while married to my grandfather. She
: died of TB in 1950. Do you think I can/should still send away
: for a birth certificate even if I don't have the mother's maiden
: name, but have the father's? I don't know. Just trying to get
: another lead on Hattie Lewis from Perry County.

: Thanks,

: Ginger
