    Notes 
    • Notes from Don Houliston (10 March 2004):
      ... was still alive in 1927 when we visited the UK and we saw him briefly
      and again (17 April 2004):
      ... met my mom's father in 1928 when I was a boy of seven, when my Dad had long leave and we all went to the UK. He was already a widower then (I think - I do not remember seeing his wife) and he was living in Liverpool or on the other side of the Mersey.

      =======================
      THE FOLLOWING BMD Birth record IS WRONG!! (and have the GRO entry to prove it!)
      in the 1861 census this family is living in Liverpool, Lancashire, England
      and the father Thomas is a Boiler maker
      1 Marshs Place
      Name Age
      Thomas Lewis 40

      John Lewis 12
      Thomas Lewis 9
      George Lewis 7
      Mary E Lewis 3
      Joseph Lewis 10 Mo

    Notes 
    • ??? not sure about this

      The marriage between Thomas Lewis (b. West Derby, Liverpool 1824) and Mary Ann Griffiths (b. Wistaston - between Crewe and Nantwich, Cheshire - in 1824) took place in West Derby in the June quarter of 1844. Most couples usually had their first child soon after getting married, and since the birth of Richard didn`t happen until 1849, there may have been another child before Richard.

      This marriage is also recorded in the July, August September quarter of 1844 (www.1837online.com <http://www.1837online.com/>) as
