- There are 98 records for Ellis Lewis and Elizabeth Newlin at WorldConnect.I also found this one for his marriage to Ann. Last child is born in 1712. Since I found several records showing him marrying Elizabeth in 1713, it is probable that Ann died in childbirth or soon after. Note there's a will.

This record below for Ellis took him far back into Wales with names only, no locations or dates. It is always a good idea to take anything you find here with a large grain of salt, but another record shows him sealed to Ann in the LDS in 1944. So their record might be worth obtaining.ID: I7265 Name: Elizabeth NEWLIN Surname: Newlin Given Name: Elizabeth Sex: F Birth: 3 Mar 1686/1687 in Concordville, Chester County, Pennsylvania 1Death: 1723 in Piques Creek, Chester County, Pennsylvania 1_UID: 356CCEEADA0729439FAF5143169BFE336A92 2Change Date: 25 Dec 2001 at 14:08:30
