Another Fielding Lewis married a sister of Geo.

Thomas was the first Lewis to keep a journal of exploration. Captain Meriweather Lewis was the first American to cross the Continental Divide, " Undaunted Courage" by Stephen E. Ambrose 1996 The fateful journey of Lewis and Clark. [" in 1803 the personal secretery of Pres. Thomas Jefferson was selected to lead the voyage up the Missouri River to the Rockies over the mountains down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean and back. Lewis was the perfect choice" "The first Lewis to come to America was Robert in 1635 a welshman and an officer in the British Army with a grant from the King and 33,3331/3 acres of Virginia land. He had numerous progeny"] " The Great grandfather of Lucy Meriweather and the grandfather of William Lewis was Nicolas Meriweather II 1667-1744 so the marriage combined the two bloodlines.
