Just a hello to anyone who happens across this website. You being here means you care. It also means that you have been summons by the Ancestors. Enjoy your visit, take notes, talk with your immediate families, especially the Elders. Let them know you care about them and their histories While the information here is a lot about the past, we must remember that we are also a living family of today and tomorrow. New information is as important as old information. Every new birth, marriage, etc. brings a smile to those Ancestors.
It's been 18 over years since this particular website was created and nearly 50 years of personal work on our family tree. A labor of Love. PLEASE STAY IN TOUCH WITH EACH OTHER!!
Much thanks to new found cousin Harold O. Lewis (2) for sharing his families amazing history.
Also, wish to thank cousin Diana Delaney (daughter of Audrey Byson Pinn Evans) for the series of

sharing and preserving our amazing heritage. New Photo LINK
A nice article was written by Carolyn Lynn on her Prince William Genealogy blog entitled:Tombstone
Tuesday. It also contains a plat from the Deed Book clearly describing the boundaries of the
land owned by our ancestor Howison Pinn.
Cousin Lutie Lewis Coates
Cousin Lutie Lewis Coates aka "Lutie Lew", as she is lovingly remembered, was not
only a school teacher and a principal but a Gift and Treasure to those countless
youngsters who had the honor of sitting in one of her classrooms. Please see below
Cousin Diane Lewis's reflections and attached story:
An elementary school in Fairfax County, Virginia was named after longtime African-
American teacher and principal, Roscoe C. Lewis and Marie Brown Lewis's oldest
daughter, Lutie Lewis Coates. She taught and was Principal at the Floris Elementary
School for most of her career and thenmoved to an integrated school, again teaching
and serving as a principal. Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary School opened in September
2009. It is staffed with teachers who applied from other schools and were then chosen
for their special skills. The school song, written by one of the music teachers, was
very affecting. It was recently performed for Cousin Diane at the schools assembly
and you can hear and see it by going to: Lutie's Song.
There is a display case in the school's main hallway which needs to be filled with memorabilia from Aunt Lutie's life. A formal dedication ceremony is planned in June of 2010. For more information, please contact Cousin Diane at email@example.com

The long history of our heritage are warpped around the life and times of these four
men and their powerful wifes. Through blood, sweat, tears and joy they lived their
lifes. They may have been very close or may have just heard about a cousin down the
river or over the hill but we are all connected in some way. The hard facts
of "citation" has not been totally found to date but the roots are firmly established
in the rich soil of Virginia and they are the same!
PLEASE take a few moments visit your specific (HP, RP, CVP and/or WCP) line
and let me know some up-dates, corrections or whatever you have to share. I have
added a lot of information of late mostly from the CVP and WHP lines. Thank
you and Enjoy the Journey! Lionel
