Show synopsis My Neck of the Woods is the account of five different Lewis families known to have inhabited Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marion, Horry, and Georgetown counties in South Carolina; and Brunswick, Columbus, Robeson, Cumberland, Sampson, Duplin, Pender, New Hanover, and Bladen counties in North Carolina. For each family, like that of William and Mary Lewis who settled in Brunswick County in 1731 (Key Lewis Family #1), Mr. Lewis traces descendants into the 20th century and, with the aid of computer-generated diagrams, illustrates their migration patterns throughout the Carolinas. Working from the U.S. federal censuses from 1790 through 1920, court records, secondary sources, and countless Internet sites, Mr. Lewis has laid the groundwork for genealogies of five separate Carolina Lewis families.Mr. Lewis' painstakingly prepared book also comes with a CD containing supplementary information about the Lewises that was available on the author's web site at the time of publication.
