I am Margaret Givens-Green. I am a descendant of William "Berry" Lewis. I have discovered (98% sure) Berry's father (Ambrose Lewis) and grandfather (John Lewis).

Berry's son, John William Lewis, was the first African American to settle at Salem, Michigan in September 1879. The Lewises have lived in Salem from 1879 to present day.

I have also connected the following genealogy to the Lewis family:
*AMBROSE LEWIS FAMILY (MIDDLE/LATE 1700s+ VIRGINIA)
