I, too, am interested in a family living on Indian lands prior to the Creek
Cession. The family name was Lewis. Daniel B. Lewis founded Lewisville (later
Louisville), and deeded the land where Clayton now stands. This are is in
present day Barbour County. Daniel died in 1833 and his will listed among his
Kendall Lewis --- who served with Benjamin Hawkins when Hawkins was Indian Agent
to tribes south of the Ohio. Kendall married an Indian woman and ran a inn near
Fort Bainbridge. This family migrated to Titus County Texas sometime in the
Others who inherited were John E. Lewis, Harrison W. Lewis (who migrated to
Arkansas), Mary, Catherine, and Seabourne L. Lewis. Seabourne migrated to the
Coastal Bend area of Texas and is the person in whom I have the most interest
but the least information.
Any information about any of these family members will be greatly appreciated.
