He was the youngest son of John Lewis, the pioneer, and brother of Gen. Andrew Lewis, great-greatgrandfather of Mrs. C. V. Stacy, and was also of the number who fell at Point Pleasant. In 1760, Col. Charles Lewis married Sarah Murry, and left seven children, viz., Elizabeth, Margaret, John, Mary, Thomas, Andrew, and Charles (the father of Charles C. Lewis), who was born in Augusta county, Virginia, in 1774, probably in September, as in the will of Col. Charles Lewis, dated August 10, 1774, just before starting on his march to Point Pleasant, he provides for the unborn child of his wife, Mary.This unborn child was Charles Lewis, who served with distinction under Gen. Anthony Wayne, in 1795, in his Indian campaign in the West, as a lieutenant, as is attested to by his commission, dated August 7, 1795, and signed by General Washington, and now in possession of his descendant, P.S.
