  • Married c. 1724 in Virginia to John Brown b. c. 1685

There is NO record of her marrying a Major John Lewis - she had a BROTHER by that name.

The second wife of Henry Willis was born Mildred Lewis, the daughter of John Lewis and Elizabeth Warner. She married first John Howell, by whom she had one child, a daughter Mildred Howell, who married a Lightfoot. John Howell died, and she married, second, Dr. John Brown, as probably his second wife. It is thought that she did not have any children by Dr. Brown. Her third husband was Henry Willis, and she was his second wife. By Henry Willis she had four children. After her death Henry Willis married Mildred Washington, daughter of Lawrence Washington and Mildred Warner, and they had one child, Lewis Willis. Notice that the two Mildreds are first cousins, since their mothers were the two Warner sisters.
