It started, as good quests always do, with a family tale.

Emeline married Oliver Lewis MD on August 24th 1848 at the New Hempstead Presbyterian Church in Pomona, New York.

The couple had at least seven children:

  • Anna M Lewis b. Jun 1850 d. UNK died young
  • FNU Lewis b. UNK d. bef 1900  from 1900 census
  • Williard P Lewis b. abt 1854 d. 18 Jan 1893 no issue
  • FNU Lewis b. UNK d. bef 1900  from 1900 census

As the wife of a physician, Emeline and family moved around a lot. Both Emeline and her husband were born in Orange Co, New York and resided there through 1860 or 1865. The family moved to Bradford Co, Pennsylvania before 1870 and moved again, to Tioga Co, New York before 1875. Oliver retired from practicing medicine in 1882  and the couple moved to Jersey City, New Jersey.

Oliver died on March 6th 1885 in Jersey City, NJ. He is buried in the Wallkill Cemetery in Phillipsburg, NY.

Emeline moved to New York City sometime after Oliver's death and was living on Park Avenue by 1892. In 1900 Emeline was living on St Anns Avenue in the Bronx with daughter Jennie and son Augustus, and a 60 year old niece, J Mary Lewis.

Emeline Corwin Lewis died June 26th 1903 in the Bronx and is buried along side her husband in Wallkill Cemetery with son Willard.
