Zachariah was my G'G'Grandfather. Here is some more info I found. Lewis came to Alabama with a land grant. Until I found this we didn't know what from. It was listed on the site where Z.L. was listed as their child. I emailed the researcher but I haven't heard back yet.

* Lewis GEORGE was in Jefferson County, Alabama (according to censu
s records),
in 1830.
* He applied for land, based on his time of service in the War of 181
2. The
National Archives in Washington, DC ( 20408), places his enlistmen
t as being
about 20 June 1812, volunteering in Collenton District, South Carol
ina.
* Lewis GEOREGE did purchase land in Jefferson County, Alabama on 1
5 March
1849, land in Section 19, Township 20, Range 4 East. On 11 Januar
y 1856 he
was awarded Bounty land in S25, T18, R3E, with Certificate No. 1013
28, this
land was based on his military service.
* His wife (married in 1850) Mary_________ , was living in 1856, bu
t had died
before the 1859 settlement of the Lewis GEORGE Estate, in Jefferso
n Co. Al.

Pretty cool Huh?

Susan
