Lewis/London Family Notes* it is written by Ina Lee Lewis:

"After massacre, Katherine and her four surviving children
moved to Cole City where they lived with her sister and
brother-in-law, Juda and John LONDON. When Walker and
J.B. (brothers) were old enough they returned to the
mountain [Boston?], married and claimed family property.
They built up businesses farming, operating a sawmill, a flour
mill and some other things in partnership with their in-laws,
the Morris family, and with some of their Morris connections,
the Wood family. At age 14, Vesta [Buenavista] married her
cousin, Rufus Huston LONDON, and moved to Texas until the
Civil War ended when they returned to Cole City."

Four Children: Buenavista Arleva (Lewis) LONDON, David "Walker" LEWIS, James "Boone" LEWIS, Melissa (Lewis) MAXWELL, (possibly "Jefferson" James who may well be our Boone.) [*recorded by oral family history]

If anyone can help fill in the blanks or verify information I would be
