Name: Ephraim Lewis
Birth: 20 JUL 1778 in , , North Carolina, USA 1 2 3
Ephraim LEWIS was born about 1790 in NC. He died between 1841 and 1848 in Iredell Co. NC. No record of Ephraim's death found. A note in the GSIC files states Ephraim was still in Iredell Co. in 1841 and a letter from Rosa and Elizabeth in July 1848 implies he had died.
Ephraim, by 1840 at least, must have been deaf and dumb. In the 1840 census, the column indicating "a male 25 years and upward is deaf and dumb was checked. There had long been a story in our family that "some ancestor" was deaf and dumb. It, then, was Ephraim. This handicap of Ephaim's may account for the few records we find of his activity in the community when his father Daniel's name was mentioned often." Parents: Daniel LEWIS and Elizabeth BELT.
Spouse: Rosanna FARREL. Ephraim LEWIS and Rosanna FARREL were married about 1818 in Iredell Co. NC. They appeared in the census in 1840 in Iredell Co. NC.
