Hello. I'm hoping that your Searles's cousin Thomas is my Kentucky g-g-g-grandfather Thomas Lewis. My Lewis research hit a brick wall with the 1830 census, which shows my Thomas farming in Hardin County. His son later married a Nelson County girl, which led me to wonder about a Nelson County family connection. That led me to your posting on the Nelson County forum.
Do you know anything about the Thomas Lewis who shows up on the 1820 Nelson County census? The census page I have indicates that he's a widower with 3 children.

Any info appreciated, and I'm happy to share anything I have that might be relevant to your research. Thanks.
