Note: A careful study of all the census of Robert Lewis, Sr. and Sarah Cagle Lewis is suggested before adding any more children for them. On the early census where marks were made for other members in the household of Robert Lewis, there were no other marks for children other than those named above. While there were errors on some of their census (marks in wrong sex or age lines, the above children are the only children born to Robert Lewis, Sr. and Sarah Cagle Lewis, and they do fit in, while no other children will fit in and follow in a logical order through out all of their census.
Robert Lewis was a farmer.
Robert Lewis, Sr. and Sarah Cagle Lewis were buried in the Lewis family cemetery, known as Lewis Cemetery, which is located on their original home place, where they first settled, at the bottom of "Lewis Mountain".
TVA documented on one of their old maps the location of Lewis Cemetery containing five graves + (Plus). Today the land is owned by Rebecca Welch and the Lewis Cemetery is located in their cow pasture on Sunny Brook Farm Road. If one takes Bakers Chapel Road until it turns into Lewis Mountain Road N., then turn onto Angeltree LN and follow that road, it turns into Sunny Brook Farm Road. In the year "2006", William E. "Sonny" Lewis found the location of the Lewis Cemetery, and the location of their grave sites. There had been two limestone grave markers and foot markers facing the river which were those of Robert and Sarah Cagle Lewis. Ms. Welch knew the exact location of the cemetery, as well as, the location of the remains of the old Lewis Home. Her Father had owned the land before her and she had played in the cemetery and around the old remains of the old home as a child. She was kind enough to show William E. "Sonny" Lewis the locations and let him take photos of the areas.
