“You mentioned a Sarah Elam, her mother may have been a Mrs. C. A. Lewis (Information provided by the historian, Keith Lingenfelter, probably from the census.) could be, don’t know, but my mother - Viola Lewis Elam was the daughter of a Mrs. C. A. Lewis (Clarence). Don’t know who the ‘A’ is for. Grandma Loretta (Greer) Lewis, she later married Fred Gurnsey. Grandma Lewis was known, or everyone called her “Aunt Maggie." She was a practical nurse, I think that is what she was called.”
