Esther Lewin Duerr

Posted at 08:16pm
To the children of Rosetta, I am her 1st cousin, Esther Lewin Duerr. My dad, Thomas William Lewin and her dad, Clayton, were brothers. We used to visit our cousins at their house in Vernon Center. Grandpa Edward Lewin lived with their family. Grandpa died and in those days many times the funeral was right from the house. I do remember a little of that. I was born in Feb. 20, 1946 so your mom was 9 years older than me. My two brothers , Claude and John are still alive. Jean Lewin Kehoe is another surviving cousin. (Her father was Claude and brother to your Grandpa Clayton Lewin). Barb and Sue (Lewin) are two surviving cousins to your mom from another Lewin brother, Martin. Not sure if you knew much of your Lewin Family history but maybe this will help. With deep sympathy for your mother's death and for my cousin, Rosetta's passing, Esther Lewin Duerr
