I started with Ancestry in 2009 when I got my first tablet as I was able to go right into the cemeteries, take a picture and upload it and all gravestone info immediately :) I was most interested in my Mother's family from Germany and So Illinois (Schoembs)....Imagine my surprise when I discovered my Father's Family originated right in Nashville, TN where I am currently living :) I had visited many Lewis graves in Nashville and joked they were my ancestors...well they really are! :) I am now hooked on discovering my family's past and have travelled all over TN, KY and IL exploring graveyards and digging up archives. Not only am I learning a lot, but I am having fun seeing all of these interesting places!|

Hi! I am glad that you enjoyed your time in Cerulean/Trigg County. I happen to be very fond of that area for many reasons.
I am sorry to say that neither of your ancestors you are looking for are listed in the updated Cemetery book of Trigg County. It's frustrating when you know that they have to be buried some where in the vicinity, but have no clue where. I've got a few I wish I could find as well...if they only knew that we would care today where they would be, maybe they would have been more careful to document. *Genealogy Problems*
If you need anymore help with Cerulean or there around, please let me know!!

1880 census - Warren Co, TN
E.H. Lewis 39 (Edward)
M.H. Lewis 27 (Mary)
B.H. Lewis 8
B.E. Lewis 7
M.L. Lewis 2
(The last two of the above children appear with widowed mother on 1900 census, confirming that it is the same family.)
(I've found Rush's mother's findagrave memorial and linked it.)
The above link is someone's genealogy that shows Edward's connections.
George T Lewis 34
Margarette Lewis 38
Edward Lewis 11
Blanche Lewis 9
Sabie Lewis 7
Eugene Lewis 5
Mary Lewis 3
William Rush 63
Sarah Rush 51
1850 census shows Edward with his parents. Note that others are living with them, surnamed Rush. I'm guessing this might be Edward's mother's maiden name and the source of his son's name.
Hope this helps.
