Well, I would think that the Lewis and Clark genealogy is on this site. I would google Lewis and Clark to find the complete name and dob/dod. Then do a family tree search. If you are using a free account you can only use public member trees and family tree project. After you put in the initial search info there will be a side bar listing the different tree databases on the left. When you have found the right tree and get on the database, click index. This will pull up all the last names in the family tree. Type Lewis in the surname search box above the index. After you have the list of Lewis's, try to find members of your Lewis line.

complicated huh? lol It's alot easier if you have a payed account.

Let me know if you need any more help.

I am searching for information on Elian Lewis bn Tn in 1786.
Tennessee was not a state at the time so I am not sure where to look. He had three sons, one being Martin Marion Lewis. The family moved to MS shortly after his birth. He died in Calhoun Co., MS.

I was wondering if this could have any connections to the Lewis family in this book. I would be happy to purchase my own copy if I thought it could shed some light on my search.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
