John Henry Lewis was supposed to have married once before, name unknown. She was suppose to have died young without having any children, although not verified.
My wife's father was John Henry Lewis Nowell, son of Burl Burchard Nowell b.02 May 1887 and Lona Ivy Lewis b.30 May 1898, daughter of John Henry Lewis mentioned above. He married Hallie Aline Croft b.24 Dec 1928, daughter of William Croft and Alma Lillian Grantham, my wife is Rebecca Aline Nowell Barfield.
Burl Burchard Nowell b.02 May 1887 was the son of John Henry Sylvestus Nowell b.10 Mar 1854 in Mississippi and Lula Eva Taylor (no dates). My wife's father, John Henry Lewis Nowell b.22 Jan 1922, was named after both of his grandfathers, John Henry Lewis and John Henry Nowell. Burl BurchardNowell and Lona Ivy Lewis owned a farm next to the then "Corsicana State Orphans Home", located in Corsicana Navarro County Texas, where I was raised for five years from 1960-65. I married Rebecca Aline Nowell, Burl's granddaughter, on 12 June 1965. Burl and Lona had sold the farm several years prior to my marriage, Burl d.29 Aug 1954 in Corsicana and is buried at the Hamilton-Beeman Cemetery Corsicana Navarro County Texas. He had farmed and also owned a tractor shop located next to the train depot (gone now). The story is, during the depression and at other times when local farmers didn't have the money, he would work on their tractors for chickens, hogs, livestock or for part of the various crops those farmers raised, this is how the family got through those bad times, he had a lot ofmouths to feed.
