I am related to the same Nathan Batts (b. abt 1821) through his son Lewis Jasper Batts (b. 1853). From reading various posts, I see that Nathan Batts' father was a Lewis Jasper Batts (supposedly born abt 1780-82), but I do not have any documentation of this. The 1860 census shows a Lewis Batts (b. 1805) who lives with Mahala and Mary Kirby. This Lewis Batts (b. 1805) is listed one house before Nathan Batts (b. abt 1821) on the census, which leads me to believe they are related. Are the Lewis Batts' (b. 1780-82 and 1805) the same person?
