Author Info

Jay Lewis was born in Breckenridge, Minnesota, in 1949, and was educated at the University of North Dakota and the University of Virginia, where he graduated with a Ph.D. in Education, Evaluation and Research. He spent most of his professional life in Washington, DC, where the Library of Congress and the National Archives provided him with all the resources imaginable in his chosen areas of interest, history, and genealogy. Lewis discovered his relationship to Opechancanough, and his daughter, Nicketti, while doing genealogical research on his own family. Opechancanough had a fascinating life in two different centuries, and in two different continents, some of which had impact on the history of America. His first book, Opechancanough and His Descendants, combines this history with a genealogy of his many descendants, including four governors of American states.
