  • Notes  Married:
    • Jane died before Sep 1757 in Albemarle County, probably at "Belvoir." About 1758, Robert Lewis married Elizabeth (Thornton) Meriwether, widow of Jane's nephew, Thomas Meriwether. There were no children by this marriage and Robert died before December 1765, when his will was proved. (Robert was the paternal grandfather and Elizabeth was the maternal grandmother of Capt. Meriwether Lewis. The Meriwethers & Lewises of the day liked to keep family connections close.)
