Bruce, I am not related, you have a good start and hope this helps and hope you enjoy your genealogy. Paula

Interesting info about the granite being used in the Capitol building.

23 June 1860: Beat 2, Cherokee, Texas Post Office: Rusk
Roll: M653_1290 Page: 438
Thos B Lewis, age 35, farmer, $250 real estate, $250 personal, born AL
Susan C Lewis, age 24, TN
James H Lewis, age 4, TX
Charles W Lewis, age 2, TX
Mary H Lewis, age 1, TX
James E Lewis, age 25, farm laborer, AL

The 1860 Cherokee census had a couple of male Lewis' who would have been old enough to be father of Thomas B Lewis but none born in GA as indicated on the 1880 census as being the birthplace of his father which may not be correct. The 1900 record indicates T B Lewis father was from NC.

I did not find Thomas B nor James E Lewis in the 1850 record and James E Lewis was not counted in either Cherokee or Burnet counties in 1870. If Thomas and Susan lived long enough to have their deaths recorded [required beginning in 1903] their death certificates should have the names of the parents on them providing the informant knew who they were; well worth the 10 or 11 dollars for the copies.

Abner Gregg, 5/1880, born TX, father MO, mother AR, listed as bro in law of John R or B Bingham, 1854 of LA and Chloe? J Bingham wife, 1857, TX; married 23 yrs. I believe Abner to be son listed as P A Gregg on 1880 record. John Bingham may have been married to one of the Gregg daughters before marriage to Chloe who indicates father was from Iowa.

Cleo J Bingham and John R family was in Guadalupe Valley, Guadalupe, Texas in 1880 record.

I did not find Jessie J Gregg in the 1900 record...seems like he should have been in Travis county in 1900?
