David Lewis (1750-1798) and Joannah Trundle (1754-1810) from Frederick County, Maryland to Harrison County, (West) Virginia


Two early settlers living in the Province of Maryland around 1700 were Jonathan Lewis and John Trundle I. This is an attempt to provide information about some of their descendants. The title contains the name of one descendant of each settler. This work is divided into two parts to cover descendants of the two settlers and their known wives. The first part is limited to the first four generations of descendants of Jonathan and Mary (---) Lewis and the second part is limited to the first four generations of descendants of John I and Mary (---) Thorley Trundle. Female lines have been extended for only one generation out of the surname. Within those limitations descendants through great-great-grandchildren for whom records were found have been included. Those interested in a probable connection to this Lewis family or this Trundle family should be able to determine whether there is a connection by researching more recent generations back to the period covered in this work. Some other related surnames are: Barber, Beall, Beckett, Belt, Browning, Burdette, Davis, Dawson, Fitzgerald, Harvey, Howard, Jenkins, King, Lazenby, Lovelace, Millhouse, Moxley, Mullican, Perine, Spires, Thawley, Thorley, Trunnell, Veatch, Warfield, Watkins, Wilcoxen, Wilson, Windsor, and Wood. A full-name index, early maps, facsimiles of some wills, and numerous transcriptions of wills, deeds, and other court documents add to the value of this work.
