I can't find the Newcomb connection for James. Does anyone have him in their line? I would be very grateful for any information, he is one of my "walls".

  1. It appears that James Newcomb Lewis is a descendant of Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins.

    Stephen Hopkins m. Mary
    Giles Hopkins m. Catherine Wheldon
    Caleb Hopkins m. Mary Williams
    Thomas Hopkins m. Deborah Bickford
    Hannah Hopkins m. John Lewis
    Solomon Lewis m. Mary "Polly" Wiley
    James Newcomb Lewsi m. Patty Lawrence Stone

    The Hopkins family is linked to the Newcombs.

    Here is one such link:

    Stephen Hopkins m. Mary
    Giles Hopkins m. Catherine Wheldon
    Deborah Hopkins m. Josiah Cooke
    Elizabeth Cooke m. Thomas Newcomb

    This makes James Newcomb Lewis a 2nd cousin 2R to the children of Thomas Newcomb and Elizabeth Cooke.

    Whether or not this is the reason for his middle name, I do not know.
