(Note by Dianne - since the DNA projects have started an new era of Genealogy research, it has been proven that "Planter" John Lewis did not descend from Major John Lewis of Monmouthshire or Brecknockshire Wales. Major John Lewis was the ancestor of the Warner Lewis line & the DNA tests for descendants of that line did not match with the descendants of the "Planter" John Lewis line.
