    Notes 
    • Go to the Media section, Down to collection, then to Obituaries, Then to Lewis Obits

      It is unknown which house he was born in, as he was born between the 1910 & 1920 Census. But his parents are found at these two locations; 210 Conover St. or 216 Conover St., Burlington City, Burlington County, New Jersey. All we know is that he was born at home.

      145 West Broad St.

      If Charles A. knew of his paternal lineage he took it to his grave. He persisted in saying that
      he was not interested. When shown a picture of his Mother's Grandfather (Edward Tonkins Shinn), his reply was that he didn't know who it was and referred to Edward as "Willie off of the pickle boat."

      Getting him to discuss his family was like pulling teeth, the more we asked, the less information we received.

      Charles hardly knew his Mother (Mary Martha Shinn) as she died 13 Nov 1918, when he was only 5. For 11 years he and his two sisters (Louise & Elizabeth) resided with their Shinn Grandparents and their daughters at 468 Washington Ave. in Burlington, NJ. (Louise & Elizabeth remained here
      until they both married.)

      In 1929 his Father (George A.) remarried; her name was (Mary Roth-Innes/Innis). Charles was now 16 and returned to live with his Father and Step-Mother.

      Charles barely spoke with his Father, Nor would he allow his Father to visit the Delanco residence. (for reasons that I am not privy to.)

      On the 29th Oct. 1995 Charles Allinson Lewis penned the following poem to his children on his
      60th wedding anniversary to Elizabeth Mae Risley.

      WE LEARNED

      In the realm of childhood
      we find a mystic charm;
      A sort of trusted innocence
      which banishes alarm.
      We learned that four from
      two is six.
      Other rules too, we learned
      were looking for a fix.

      We can't endow a hospital
      or buy our way to fame.
      We've built four noble people
      who do honor to our name.
      To the four from two we leave
      the things that,"might have been",
      The things we meant to do
      but never did begin.
