Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Halley Bronson Lewis, III, and I been researching my family roots for the past two decades. I am an 11th-generation Floridian as my ancestors show up as Florida residents in the 1793 Spanish census of East Florida. They then settled in Columbia, Alachua and Levy counties long before Florida became a state in 1845. My main project has been to accumulate and document every descendant of Brunson L. Lewis (1810-1876), who came to Florida in 1837 to fight in the Second Indian War. I am happy to share this tree with anyone who is interested!

Jane Almira Coulter Epperson
Hal, not sure if you are aware but Jane Coulter Epperson is in fact buried at the Old Bronson Cemetery, not Jesse Mercer Willis Cemetery. If you could please delete the duplicate memorial, for clarity purposes, that'd be great. Thank you!

Hope you understood from my message your memorials were the originals. Have rerouted all children links requested to the duplicate memorials. Very understanding of you. Merry Christmas !!

John A. Pylant
I found your Find A Grave Memorial# 69723074 for John A. Pylant. He was my 5x great grandfather. Are you descended from him? By any chance, do you have any photos of him or his descendants?

My son is currently at Auburn U, and is going to find the original Poplar Baptist Church Cemetery and photograph Grandpa Pylant's headstone if it is still there.

Thompson Westbrook
Hal, I see you have done quiet a bit of Westbrook work on Findagrave. Thought you would like to know that there are two memorials for Thompson with yours being created second. Hopefully, there is a way to combine you info and links to the first memorial # 87770092 so, all the links and info are together. Hope I have not offended you. Connie

Death of Nathaniel Ashley (h of JW)
These two EF records establish that Nathaniel Ashley died before 1795. A male appearing likely to be Nathaniel was counted in Jane Ashley's HH in the 1790 Census, Beauford County, SC. He likely died there, which prompted Jane's return to Florida.

You are most welcome, glad I could help. I have a photo of Thomas Seymore's name on the side of their stone. I would assume there is a relation there, if you want to create memorial, I can add the photo as well.

Have a great day!
