Looking for information on Lewis J. Gaddis listed on the 1850 census for Talladega Co., AL.

Talladega Co., AL. 1850 census, dated 1850 Dec. 3, Microfilm #M432-15, stamped pg. #454B, lines #22 - #25.

hh #1450 - #1489, Talladega District.

Lewis Gaddis 24 m w Laborer GA.
Georgi Ann Gaddis 26 f w GA.
Mintora R. Gaddis 4 f w AL.

It is possible that Lewis was a timber speculator. Family known to have been in Talladega/Randolph/Calhoun areas.

Lewis J. Gaddis purchased the following land:

40.21 acres SESW Twp. 17S Range 6E Sec. 12 (SE quarter of the SW quarter).

40.52 acres NESE Twp. 17S Range 6E Sec. 11 (NE quarter of the SE quarter).

Land purchases appear to be approx. 30-36 miles East of the Huntsville Meridian in the Northern part of Talladega Co. approx. 2 miles South of the Southernmost Calhoun Co. line.

Lewis J. Gaddis apparently died ca. 1859/1860 (died aft. 1-1-1859 but bef. 6-29-1860).

Lewis' Widow listed Calhoun Co., AL. 1860 census.

William Lewis Gaddis married Dorcas Elizabeth "Eliza" Robinson in Hamilton Co., TX. 8-27-1876. They stayed in Hamilton Co. until 1884/1885 then moved to Erath Co., TX. where they lived until 1891/1892. They then moved to the Indian Territory, Chickasaw Nation, around Byars in present McClain Co., OK. In 1900 they were in Pottawatomi Co., OK. and in 1908 they moved to Cement, Caddo Co., OK. where they lived 1908-1939. William Lewis Gaddis was born 8-20-1854 Roanoke, Randolph Co., AL. died 11-21-1930 Cement, Caddo Co., OK.

Looking for any information on the above Lewis J. Gaddis and any confirmation of Lewis' wife's maiden name (there is a possibility that she married a Bowman after 1860).
