All of the above were enlisted in 3rs Cav. Co. B at Lewisburg Ark.
8.William L. Couch who was killed by accidental discharge of his gun while pursuing the enemy in 1861. He was in Company H.
I don't think the Lewis's above are old enough to be the Lewis you are looking for.
I know from censes records that Hardin, John, and Ambrose Powell are in Ark in the 1850's along with the Couches, Stobaughs, McGinty's, Choats, Hardin's and Riley's.I do know that if Isom Powell actually went to Ark. with Ambrose and Chairty, he must have moved back pretty quick because he is very well documented in TN censuses.
I really don't know what happened to Lewis beyond the fact that he married Elizabeth Pretchell in 1820.For some reason I had thought he was in Ark. also, but after going over my resords, I can't seem to find him there.
