Surnames: Lewis, Morris, McCurdy, Berkett, Burnett
Been researching James M Lewis (forever), told to be born on 18 Feb 1800, KY
(possibly in Boonesboro, Clark, KY). [Seems in 1800 that would be Madison County, now Clark County, KY]

I have a date of marriage as 12 Nov 1826, marrying either a Katherine Berkett/Burnett or McCurdy. If they married in Crawford County, Arkansas the records would've been destroyed by fire in 1870's. I suppose it's possible they were married in Hardin County, Kentucky before moving to Arkansas around 1830.

First daughter born in 1847 and 1850 census finds her Catherine alone with three children and haven't found where he was living after that. He may've died as late as 1858 (unfounded) but family lore states 1853. A fifth child was born "M.J." Melissa J. MAXWELL, about 1854. I say "about" because I'm working purely on memory ;-D

It's possible his son James Boone "J.B." aka: Boone was born in 1849, married a Mary A or C Morris, daughter of Elijah "Elza" MORRIS born 1849, Elizabethtown, Hardin, Ky. I get the Mary C from a possible military record for James Lewis, Private, record on gwinifred tree: Benjamin Harrison Lewis.

More of the names we've come across in your post seem familiar; Henry C and Elijah or Eliza Lewis.
