Lewis & Tamplin Families
I have information re persons born in Peoria, IL area. The Lewis family moved to the Peoria area about 1840, along with members of the Tamplin family. The Lewis family was from NY, moved to OH (abt. 1820 to abt.1840), then moved abt 1840 to IL (Peoria Co) and MO (Scotland Co). It is believed the Tamplins come from OH, possibly from NY bef. OH. Both families are believed to originate from Wales/England.
I would like to connect with members of the Lewis or Tamplin family. Email Contact
