    Doctor Andrew Lewis was another member of the Lewis family, who lived and died in Botetourt. He was a son of Capt. Wm. Lewis, who was twice married—first to a daughter of Thomas Madison, and afterwards to Nancy McClanahan, sister of Col. Elijah McClanahan. Dr. Lewis rose to great eminence in his profession—married Maria Walton, who is now living near Salem, and had three children—two daughters and one son.—One of the daughters, Lucy, married George W. Shanks; the other, Mary, married Henry A. Edmundson. The son, Dr. Wm. W. Lewis married a daughter of Rev. Dr. McFarland, and left a daughter and son, Frank Lewis, who is now at Seminary, preparing for the ministry, being the only one of the Lewis name (so far as I know) who has devoted himself to that calling. Having thus traced the Botetourt branches of the Lewis family from their ancestor, John Lewis, of Augusta county, I will now return to my first plan of presenting a sketch of Andrew Lewis, commonly known and referred to as the “hero of Point Pleasant,” which is gathered in part from “Howe’s Historical Collections,” page 204, on Botetourt county—but venturing to suggest a correction in one or two particulars, which will be pointed out—also Charles Campbell’s “Introduction to the History of the Colony of the Old Dominion”—from the same author’s larger work, “History of the Colony and Ancient Dominion of Virginia,” and from Foote’s “Sketches of Virginia,” 2d series, all of which are works of high authority.
