    Lewis Tanner and his wife, Margaret Haskins Tanner, settled in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, probably between 1730 and 1740. Their son, Josiah Tanner, married Martha Wootten, in 1771.
  • Lewis Tanner, who settled in Mecklinburg County, Virginia, not far from 1730 or 1740, or something near one-hundred-and-sixty-years ago. It is shown by the records that his deed for his homestead was recorded in 1750, and this property is still held by his continuous descendants, at the present time owned by Melville Tanner, of Lacross, Mecklinburg County, Virginia: The name of Lewis Tanner's wife before marriage was Margaret Haskins, she having a brother named Creed, and these two names -- Haskins and Creed, are often found in the later families, following Lewis and Margaret Tanner. To this patriarchal pair were born two sons, named Thomas and Josiah. Thomas married Mollie Evans, and they had three sons, named Thomas, Ludwell and David. This Thomas was the grandfather of Wm. M. Tanner, and Ludwell was the grandfather of Mary H. Tanner, Wm. M. Tanner's wife.
  • Lewis Tanner lived in 1748 at Lunenburg (later Mecklenburg County), Virginia, In 1748 and 1749 Lewis Tanner was living with his sons, Lucius and Thomas Tanner, in the part of Lunenburg County that would later become Mecklenburg County, likely on the 354 acres he secured with a patent in 1750.
