Could you check and see if there is an Ethel Lewis mentioned. I went on J.D. Lewis's site and founs 1 but he was under Sam Lewis, (which this could be right since he was raised by someone other than his real parents. His father is really Henry Lewis and his mother is Susie Mincey, both of Horry County. There are several stories behind who raised him so I'm not sure which is the right one, maybe your book can help me out--here goes;(1 story) It was said that Henry is the father of Ethel and that Henry's wife was a midwife. She went out one night delivered this baby, came home confornted her husband that she knew it was his (never no mention of him admitting that he was), got up early the next morning went out and got mother and child and brought them home with her to live. (2 story) My father has always said that all he knew about him was that he and Susie Mincey were never married and that Henry Lewis was Ethel's dad (his grandfather) and that he had heard that one night he got drunk and fell in a ditch and broke his neck and died. Also that he had 1 brother who caught his wife and best friend together, killed them both and fled the state,remarried and named his first daughter after his first wife.
Ethell was born in 1899, in Horry County, somewhere (I assume) around Aynor or Galivants Ferry. Ethell married Lula Gerrald, had 4 boys,Lula died he remarried Verbie Small and had 1 girl. Can you find any mention of any of these people or of these events in your book?
