Hi Clarence and Everyone,
Does anyone happen to know anything about the Jacob & Isaac Lewis families that were living next door to your Heatherly family in the 1850 Ozark census.
I've assumed Jacob Lewis Heatherly was named for this Jacob Lewis. Jacob Lewis came to Ozark/Douglas Counties from Greene County Indiana about 1848, and according to information written in the 1930s, he was from Greene County, Tennessee (abt 1800-1818), and VA & NC prior to that. His wife, Mary, was supposedly from a Virginia tribe; her maiden name is often given as "Learsay." There is no documentation that I know of. Here's a link to my Lewis pages: http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/12356576/person/-280377164
