Re: Ambrose & Rebecca Lewis descendants
Thank you for the information. I just now discovered your message - sorry. I now have the deed you mentioned. It is a Comissioner's Deed from Adair Co. Ky and is dated June 24 1853. It lists all of Christopher Lewis's living heirs. William & George Powell were mentioned as the infant sons (under 21)of Recbecca Powell, late Recbecca Lewis. The birthn year in 1833 appears to match well per this record.
I am still trying to find more about George and William Powell (b. 1833) in Adair Ky. So far I only have George in the 1850 Adair census, which you mentioned, with his grandmother Nancy Lewis (maiden name Dorton). I hit a brick wall after that.
