Andrew Lewis Death Certificate 1915
Elizabeth Lewis family 1860 Federal Census
Note her next door neighbors:
Living on one side is her daughter Martha Lewis Casteel. On the other side is John Lane, who migrated to Missouri with George Lewis, Elizabeth's father, John Lane's wife Hepsey is the sister of George's wife, Elizabeth Gilliland.
We are not sure exactly where in North Carolina they are from. We next see records of them in Cocke County, Tennessee.
Their next documented location is Marion County, Tennessee.
No Lewises were listed as landowners in Marion County in 1824 (offsite link).
George and Jacob were in Marion County, Tennesse in 1836, according to the county tax list, living in District 1. John Lewis is living in District 4. Another Lewis on the Tax list was Benjamin, living nearby in District 1. He could have possibly been the father of the 4 brothers. Note that John and George each named one of their sons Benjamin. No sons of the four brothers were named Nathan.
Jacob, David, and John all were in Madison County, Missouri by 1844, and census records show each of them them have a child born in Missouri in that year or the year after. George was in the 1850 Census in Marion County, Tennessee, but was in Iron County, Missouri by 1851, as the next census lists his 12th child as born in Missouri in 1851.
John, David, and George acquired Land Patents from the US Government in Madison County, Missouri. David and John got the first land patents in 1853, then George in 1854. Their earliest Land Patents were in the Lower Carver Creek Valley, northwest of Annapolis.
Iron County was formed in 1857. The area around Annapolis was originally a part of Madison County.
Jacob Lewis acquired a Land Patent in Reynolds County in 1857. Many of his children are found in later Census living in Reynolds County.
