About Williams, Lewis and Allied families
The oldest known member of the Williams family, John Williams, served in the 
Revolutionary War.  Although John Williams Revolutionary War pension states he 
served from New York, it is now believed he actually served in a militia unit 
commanded by Captain Outwater in New Jersey. We have been unsuccessful as of 
yet in finding the father of our John Williams.  John had one son Williams 
Williams born 1791 in North Carolina.  There is also a possiblity that John 
and wife Rebecca had a daughter named Lucinda who married John Wolfer.  There 
is a John Williams listed in the 1810 Federal census in Cumberland county, 
Kentucky who had a son and a daughter of the appropriate ages to be William 
and Lucinda. The 1830 Federal Census of Tazewell County, Illinois had a John 
Williams of the correct age living next to John Wolfer and Joseph Williams. 
John Williams and John Wolfer purchased adjacent land grants in Harrison 
County, Indiana in 1836. Rebecca "Recker" Williams is living with Lucinda 
Wolfer and her family in the 1850 Federal census in Harrison County, Indiana.  
The death certificate of John H. Wolfer lists his parents as John Wolfer and 
Lucinda Williams. For information about Lucinda iand her family, please click 
on the link for the Wolfer family listed under useful links.

Both John Lewis and his son Richard Lewis had Revolutionary War service in 
North Carolina. The father of Richard Lewis's wife Lydia was William 
Field/Fields who was a well known Loyalist in North Carolina.  The generations 
earlier than John Lewis, 1719-1802, are not confirmed but are believed to be 
correct by the Lewis Family researcher Michael McDowell of Evansville, Indiana 
who published at least 5 volumes on the Lewis Families of American.
