    Not the Julius P Lewis you were looking for? View more results from the 1940 Census.


    This snapshot of Julius P Lewis's life was captured by the 1940 U.S. Census.
    When Julius P Lewis was born about 1918, his father, Joseph, was 32 and his mother, Meriam, was 26. In 1940, he was 22 years old and lived in Washington, District of Columbia, with his father, mother, and 2 brothers.

    Don & Matteo, I found the guy I was looking for on the dog tags found several years back, 2010 to be the exact. Just went through over 4,000 names and needless when I'm running out of names in the alphabet, his name is with a "V". https://old.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=56315404 https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/56315404/john-vegso

    Next, I remember several years back before the great flood of August 2016, where I lost everything I owned. I do remember helping with an American GI's found dog tags by Matteo in Italy. Matteo posted the tags, I found the name in Find A Grave's data base as buried in the American Cemetery in Italy. I also found photos of him, since no pics was on his memorial, I posted his photo along with the dog tags. I can't find the post about it anywhere on TNet. I don't remember his name cause I lost all in the flood. There's over 10,000 names to sort through and you have to do it listings of A's, B's etc.

    Do y'all happened to know what happened to the post? I went through all of Matteo's posts...just not having any luck.

    Thanks, Diggummup! I just didn't see the dog tag on the 1st page and did not scroll down to the 2nd page. Sure would of beat the heck out of scrolling through 10,000+ names in the cemetery, Then I thought about my contributions to Find A Grave & like I stated above scrolled through almost 4,000 names to find at the very ending.

    Matteo and Don,

    One of the earlier posts indicated that Lt. Lewis' nephew, Gerald L. Lewis, lived in Mount Laurel, NJ in 1990. Mount Laurel is in Burlington County. I searched the Burlington County tax records and found a deed transfer from Gerald Lewis to Melody Lewis in 2011. The deed showed an address for Gerald in Palm Coast, Florida. I did a little searching on the web for Melody Lewis and found links to Gerald L. Lewis. Long story made short, I found contact information for Gerald L. Lewis that appears to be more current. It is as follows:

    Gerald L. Lewis
    4 Surrey Ct.
    Palm Coast, FL 32137-7364
    Cell: (609) 231-1204
    Landline: (856) 231-1204
    Email: glewis@snip.net

    I don't know how accurate any of this information is. This was all public domain info on FastPeopleSearch, so it could all be wrong. However, FastPeopleSearch listed the address I saw on the deed as one of Gerald Lewis' previous addresses. That lends a little credibility to their info. The cell number is not registered in his name. The landline number appears to have been issued in Burlington County New Jersey. I hope this helps.

    I forgot to mention that Melody E. Lewis is Gerald L. Lewis' wife. I was able to confirm that (856) 231-1204 was a phone number used by Melody and Gerald Lewis in 2004 when they lived in New Jersey. It may still be a good number.

    Dear friends,
    please excuse my silence. I had some health problems and I not received confimation of your replies to this tread from TN. I not know the reason. Therefore I put also here my email matteopierro@gmail.com if someone want to contact me directly. Your work is wonderful. I greatly appreciated your efforts to find relatives of airman. I'm also in contact with Gerardo Ciccone and his father hoping will be possibile for us help they to return the pen. Here is a photo of Gerardo, father and some of us on crash site.
    I also received IDPF from USA but there is not useful information to contact relatives but I stille hope.
    Best regards from Italy and again THANKS!

    Thanks Don. I not understand because I not found my message to you in mail sent on TN....
    However I want simply inform you that I received IDPF from USA and that information in it simply confirm that you and other friends already discovered about Lewis family. No good information to find someone of his relatives....
    Again thanks.

    Matteo,

    I have found a surviving member of this family, who confirmed details of this lost airman. I am sending him the link to this thread, your website, and your email. This individual is no longer in the MD area.
