Michele, Dates are going to become very important to your research soon. Familys passed names down from generation to generation. The Andrew that was born in 1791 spawned a bunch more Andrews down through the ages. The Andrew born in Fountian Co. Ind. in 1835 was young when his parents died leaving him and several others orphaned. This is when Andrew's Luzader became Lewsader. Keep in mind he named a son Joseph Franklin Lewsader; Joeseph Franklin sometimes went by the name Frank. Joe Frank also named a son Joseph Franklin. His children I don't know but this pattern could lead to a link. The oldest Joseph Franklin hear was born March 10, 1863 in Rosedale, Vigo Co. Ind.
When I was growing up in Terre Haute, there were Luzaders in town, one was in an elected office. It would be interesting to know there side of the family legends.
