I don't think I can help you, but I will tell you what I've heard. My grandfather David Lewis Sailor was born in Jefferson Co. in 1863. The family elders say he had six brothers, but there are no records that I could find. Your grandfather might have been a son or grandson of one of these brothers. David's father's name was Lewis Sailor.You might check Jefferson Co. Indiana records, or maybe Jefferson Co., Louisville Kentucky for records of Sailor family. David's death certificate just said he was born in Jefferson Co. David had a son named William. He might have been named after one of his brothers. William's obit. said he was born in 1887 but did not say where. I hope I might have helped you more than I've confused you. If you stumble on to any information on David or Lewis please forwardit to me. Thanks! Dave
