    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Mrs. Bradley LEWIS which was taken at the Harding & Gustin Studio in Towanda, PA sometime in the 1860's or 1870's. Mrs. LEWIS appears to be in her teens at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Mrs. LEWIS and her family: Mary Genevieve or Geneveve METCALF b. 5 Apr 1851 to parents Major Henry Harper METCALF (1821-1864) and Sarah Ann DANA (1824-1901). Mary was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Mary; Emma Helen; Henry Freeman; Ann; and Amy METCALF, all born between 1851 and 1859. Mary married Bradley Wakeman LEWIS (1845-1925) on 4 Jun 1874 in Tunkhannock, PA. Mary died in 1933 in Tunkhannock, PA. Bradley was b. 20 Aug 1845 in Stevensville or Wyalusing, PA to parents Milton LEWIS (1813-1896) and Angeline ACKLEY (1815-1890). Bradley died 30 August 1925. Mary and Bradley had three children including, Helen Mary; Henry Metcalf; and Mabel Dana LEWIS, born between 1876 and 1882. Their son Henry married Mildred JAYNE, and their daughter Mabel married Alexander D. SHOEMAKER. Census records include the following details: 1870 census of Tunkhannock, PA: Sarah M.
