Francis Lewis.

If only because he was the only signer of the Declaration of Independence born in Wales.

CORRECT!

He retired from Congress in 1781 and lived with his two sons for the rest of his life. He died on Dec. 31, 1802 at the age of 89...quite a long life!

According to Wikipedia his son Morgan Lewis served in the army during the Revolutionary War and later held many offices in New York State, including Governor. Francis Lewis's great-grandson, Manning Livingston, died at the Battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War. He also has many relatives stretching all the way to Idaho.

Wonder what happened to his daughter who married the British naval officer.

I served time at hard labor for being a homosexual. At the time of my death I said of the wallpaper in my room, "One of us has to go." Who am I?

The rest of the story of Lewis' wife and children

Three children were born to Elizabeth Lewis and her husband: Francis, the eldest son, was married to the daughter of a Tory named Ludlow, whose family strenuously objected to the young man, "because his father would certainly be hung." Col. Morgan Lewis, the second son, married Gertrude, the daughter of Robert Livingston and Margaret Beekman, his wife. She was a sister of Chancellor Livingston and of Edward, "The Jurist." Ann Lewis, the only daughter of Elizabeth and Francis Lewis, fell in love with a post-captain in the British navy, named Robertson. Her father refused to consent to their marriage and a clandestine wedding ensued. Had she remained in America, it is probable that reconciliation would have been effected, but as Captain Robertson and his bride soon after sailed for England all intercourse ceased. Robertson was a brave, reckless sort of man, it is said, not given to taking much thought of the morrow. When in years afterward Mrs. Robertson was left a widow in straitened circumstances a small sum of money was sent her every year anonymously and it was not until the death of Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, that the identity of the donor was made known. The Queen was reported to have said that the wife of a gallant sailor like Captain Robertson ought not to suffer penury. One of Mrs. Robertson's daughters married Sumner, Archbishop of Canterbury, another married Wilson, Archbishop of Calcutta, and a third became the wife of Sir James Moncrief, Lord Advocate of Scotland.
