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."
[Family Source: Ina Lee Lewis]

Four Children: Buenavista Arleva (Lewis) LONDON, David "Walker" LEWIS, James "Boone" LEWIS, Melissa (Lewis) MAXWELL, (possibly "Jefferson" James who may well be our Boone.)
