DAVID LEWIS Jr.
THE TWO FAMILIES OF DAVID LEWIS JR.
Through the third generation.
The Henry Numbering System is used in the following descendant charts,
modified only by using upper case letters instead of lower case. Data
from NDT and WTL is marked as such. Many of the descendants listed
here have been sent to me and are not from my research. NDT was at one
time the genealogist for the Stovall Family Asso. and issued Vol. 1 of
a proposed two volume set on the Stovall family. Vol. 2 was not
David LEWIS Jr. m(1) Rebecca STOVALL b. about 1726 Henrico Co., VA,
daughter of George and Elizabeth STOVALL. Ref. NDT p. 51. It can
be estimated by the birth date of their first child, Rachel, in
about 1745, that they were married in about 1744. Rebecca was last
recorded as living on 8 Jul 1762 when she relinquished dower in
court to one of her husband's deeds.
1 Rachel LEWIS b.c. 1745 Albemarle Co., d. after 24 Jan 1803
Granville Co., NC. She was married by 13 Aug 1760 to Henry GRAVES
of Granville Co., NC. By her will and that of Henry GRAVES, dated
12 Jul 1797, the heirs of Henry GRAVES were Ralph GRAVES, David
GRAVES, daughters Betsy N. GRAVES m. Obediah FARRAR and Mary
GRAVES wife of Lewis YANCEY. NDT was not sure which, if any, of
these children were children of Rachel. Most of the data on
Rachel and her heirs is from NDT p. 53. Later generations have
been added here as Kenneth GRAVES, a GRAVES family researcher and
Dennis J. YANCEY, a YANCEY family researcher, both feel that all
of Henry's children were Rachel's children. Neither think that
Henry was married twice. I have added some from my research.
Rachel was in the 1800 census of Granville Co., NC, p. 511, as
aged over 45, with one male 16-26. For these to be her children,
Rachel had to have been married by age 15. For Mary GRAVES to
have married Lewis YANCEY by 1775, [and she was], she would have
had to be Rachel's first child and to have married Lewis by age
15. This is entirely possible but no proof has been found. By
the use of the 1800 census, the four children listed in the wills
can be worked into the family of Rachel.
11 Mary GRAVES b.c. 1760, m. by 31 Jan 1775 Granville Co., NC,
Lewis YANCEY b.c 1750 VA, d.c. 1819 Granville Co., NC, son of

2 Prudence LEWIS b.c. 1747 Albemarle Co., d. probably between 10
Jun and 21 Nov 1771 in Mecklenburg Co., VA. She m.c. 1762 her
cousin Thomas STOVALL. He made his will 21 Nov 1771 which did
not name his wife. On 9 Dec 1771 his will was filed for probate.
All data on Prudence and her heirs is from NDT p. 130-1.
21 Rebecca STOVALL b.c. 1764
22 Susannah STOVALL b.c. 1766, living Sep 1795, m. George JOHNSON
23 John STOVALL b.c. 1767, living 9 Nov 1789
24 Mary STOVALL b.c. 1768, living unmarried in Wilkes Co., GA 16
3 Mildred LEWIS b.c. 1749 Albemarle Co., m. William HAILD and moved
to Union Co., SC.
31 Rebecca HAILD b. before 1773, living 23 Dec 1794 Union Co.,
32 Sarah HAILD b. before 1773, living 23 Dec 1794 Union Co., SC.
[Author's speculation about this family. WTL p. 198, says
that Mildred m. a Mr. HALE and no further information was
known. The deed in Albemarle Co. dated 23 Dec 1794 shows that
Rebecca and Sarah HAILD of Union Co., SC, sold a tract of land
in Albemarle Co., to James LEWIS, which they received as heirs
of William HAILD, deceased, who received it as a bequest from
the will of David LEWIS Jr. Obviously, this William has a
connection to David Jr. Since WTL said that Mildred m. a Mr.
HALE, it is more logical for me to think that William could be
David's son-in-law and Rebecca and Sarah could be his
grandchildren. NDT did not find this deed when he was
compiling the STOVALL genealogy. In a phone conversation with
him, he said he disagrees with this theory and feels that
William most likely was David's grandson and Rebecca and Sarah
were his sisters. It seems less speculative to me to think of
William as a son-in-law with his wife deceased, than his
theory that he was a grandson. William HAILD's executor Fedr.
CROWDER, filed for letters of adm. 25 Mar 1789, Court
Minutes, Union Co., SC. No will has been found and no list of
heirs is known. There are four persons in the 1790 census
of Union Co. named HAIL and Rebecca and Sarah could be living
with any of these. They are named Hannah, Daniel and two men
named John. There are three named Hail in the 1800 census,
Hannah, John and Benjamin. Research will continue on this
