Lewis Garland, Clay/Knox KY
I am looking for information on Lewis Garland.1780s- 1830s.Born in TN or NC, lived most of his life in Clay or Knox counties in KY.
In 1820, Lewis is living within a few households ofJohn and Susanana (Nichols) Garland and Solomon Garland and several other close-knit families (Hammons, Broughton, Cobb, Hopper), in Goose Creek, Knox, KY.
My inclination is to link Lewis (perhaps William Lewis) to John and Susanna, as a son or nephew etc.Lewis was not in John's pension application, but John (who lived to 104) probably outlived Lewis.
I have several references to Lewis such as deeds or estate papers, the last in 1835.
I do not know the name of Lewis's wife, but I do know the names of most of their children.I descend through their daughter Rhoda.Rhoda and two of her brothers ended up in Pike county, Indiana.Rhoda married Joseph Jones.
There are a few accts for Lewis on Rootsweb databases, linking him to Samuel Garland of NC and TN.I believe Lewis, son of Samuel, is a different person, altho probably closely related.He was married to Tabitha and probably died prior to 1830.
I would appreciate any help in clarifying Lewis and his family.
