Lewis Markwell Next

1822 Oct 12: Born. (8)

?? When was Lewis born? The US census information is inconsistent. It implies birth years from about 1822-1828.

?? Where was Lewis born? Again, US census information is inconsistent. In 1850, 1860 and 1880, his birth place is shown as Indiana. In 1870, it is just "O." What does that mean? In 1900, it is Kentucky.

Perhaps Lewis simply did not know when or where he was born. -- dg 2012 Mar 1
