Searching for Lewis Family Grave Sites

Another Sunday driving to several Friendly Meeting House (Quakers) with the kids to find some ancestors. As we walked around Old Haverford Friends Meeting House, I found some Lewis names. Here is a picture of the tombstone that was obviously redone since the man died in the early 1700s. I didn't know if this was a family member or not, so I took a picture and came home to see if he was. While walking around this grave site, I felt the spirit very strong. I knew someone important to my family had to be there. I figured out that Henry Lewis was my great...grandfather!! Wow, what an incredible feeling to walk in the area that he lived over 300 years ago!
