William Lewelling

William Lewelling
b. 28 September 1817, Randolph County, North Carolina, to Meshach and Jane (Brookshire) Lewelling

Cyrena “Sirena” Wilson
b. 27 November 1817, Highland County, Ohio, to Michael C. and Rebecca (Reece) Wilson
d. 19 November 1856, Henry County, Iowa

Children with Cyrena Wilson:

  • Lorenzo Dow (1846–1900) married Angeline C. Cook

In 1838 William Lewelling moved with his brothers, Henderson and John, to Henry County, Iowa.

William, a Quaker minister, was a powerful advocate of the abolition of slavery. In 1847, while lecturing either in Illinois or Indiana, “with great fervor, power, and energy” on his constant theme, William was taken ill and afterwards “took to his bed and never arose.”

At the time of this lecture, William had admonished his friends and assistant, “Thee will have to look after Cyrena and the children, Eric.” Within a short time Cyrena Lewelling became the wife of Eric Knudson. But in 1856 a fire took Cyrena’s life, and the Lewelling children became orphans.

Travis immigrated to Washington Township, Randolph County, Indiana, possibly from Highland County, Ohio, about 1814. He emigrated in 1837 to Henry County, Iowa.

Although the family name was changed from Adcock to Emery by the Indiana General Assembly on 22 January 1835, the family has generally spelled the name Emry. Harriett Emry, a granddaughter, wrote in 1941 that the Adcock name was changed to Emry because the children were being teased at school about their name.

From Tucker’s History of Randolph County, Indiana: “The first settler in Washington Township may have been Travis Adcock…”
