IT'S MARY LEWELLEN, NOT MARY LEWSADER!
Posted by: Larry Head (ID *****9734) Date: March 07, 2008 at 17:08:14
In Reply to: Re: LEWSADER family members lets try this: by Mary Cunningham of 412

The Mrs. Mary Lewellen [nee Welch] that married Samuel Prevo is the widow of Samuel Lewellen, not the widow of Andrew Lewsader. This can be shown by the 1850 Fountain County census which shows two of her youngest children, Elvina and Martha living in the household with Samuel and Mary Prevo. (Elvina will go on later to marry the son of Samuel Prevo, James, on 13 May 1855, in Fountain County.) Mary’s previous husband, Samuel, died in 1843.

There is a link with Andrew Lewsader and Burton Bailey in that Samuel Lewellen was the administrator for both estates.

Hope this helps!
