  1. I’m looking to confirm that Frances Fielding Lewis, daughter of Colonel John Lewis III and Frances Fielding, did not die as an infant and indeed married George Yates IV. I found in a book that they speculated she died soon after her mother. I don’t have any hard evidence either way. Do you know of any records to confirm she lived to marry and have children?

    • There is no record that shows francis Fielding Lewis married George Yates iv . Even his DAR file says no proof of who his wife was. The book Lewis of Warner hall does not mention it all..

Any thoughts?
