Except for the statement of origin that the Lewis family descended from one Robert Lewis of Brecon, the book is well researched and accurate. The actual ancestor emigrant is John Lewis of Abergavenny, who settled on Poropotank Creek and whose headstone still exists on the Chemokins property. John Lewis arrived in 1653, and listed five family members as headrights for the original 250 acres of land granted to him in Virginia.
"Grace McLean Moses, whose unrelenting determination to discover factually supported historical information led to the deciphering of the coat-of-arms on the grave of our immigrant ancestor John Lewis, as well as tracing his history in Wales and Virginia. She documented her research in the book "The Welsh Lineage of John Lewis (1592-1657) Emigrant to Gloucester, Virginia" ISBN 0-8063-4542-X. Dr. Susan J. Daves of the University of Wales, was the principal researcher, conducting her extensive work in 1983/84 at the National Library of Wales." Mark D. Lewis, 2011
