Birth: 8 Aug 1764 Radnor Twp., Chester (now Delaware) Co., Pa.
Death: 1799 Baltimore, Md.
Cause of Death: yellow fever
In 1782, Lewis was apprenticed to someone in Uwchlan Twp., Chester Co., Pa.
Lewis sold to his brothers Daniel (1E5) and Benjamin (1E9) his share of his
father's farm. Lewis lived in Maryland, possibly in Frederick County.
James is not named in the will of Lewis' mother Zillah (Walker) Maule Brown
(1E). It is possible that he was not Lewis' child.

Account, in possession of Mary Maule (1E75712); Miller-Robison Notes; Hist. of
Seneca Co.; 1850 Va. census; Rudd, Shockoe Hill Cem.; Lang, Hist. of Seneca Co.,
Ohio; Records of Nottingham MM
NOTE: I'm unsure that there was a child James... where did that come from? A
census? Yet in her will, written in 1806, Zillah Walker Maule Brown lists 4
grandchildren, Jesse, John, Joseph and Lydia. Why not the others? Already gave them
something? If so, was she unable to "find" these four? How did she know there were
these four and not five?
The 1790 census has a Lewis Maal in Little Britain Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. It shows
one male above 16, one female above 16, and one male under sixteen. So which child
was born in 1790? Not far away in the listing is Joshua Brown and Jeremiah Brown.
Acct of John Maule in Seneca Co., Ohio,says his father died when he was 7. So is
death in 1799?
Per Pa archives, he was in the 8th Co (Capt Grubb), along with Joshua Brown,
Jeremiah Brown, Moses Midcalf, of Ludwick Urbaun's Lancaster Battalion 1793

US Quaker Meeting Records on ancestry has item 29 Aug 1789, "They also inform

prepare a testimony against his misconduct, inform him therof, & produce it at next
10 Oct 1789, "The Committee report in the case of Lewis Maule that they had an
opportunity with him and find on inspection, that he has been guilty of taking strong
drink to excess, and that he has not kept to the truth in some of his dealings, and as a

Lewis Maule as directed and it is returned, it being as follows: Whereas Lewis Maule
having a Birthright amonst us the People called Quakers, but for want of attending to
the dictates of divine Grace which would have preserved him from Evil he hat so far
given way as to be guilty of evading the Truth and drinking strong Liquor to excess;
