Simeon Lewis, Franklin Co., MO

I am looking for information on Simeon B.Lewis...

In 1850 he was a minister of the Gospel ....The following information is from "Goodspeeds History of Jefferson, Franklin, Washington Counties Missouri":

In the Franklin County chapter:

p. 351: "Little Meramec Missionary Baptist Church was organized in the fall of 1849, by the Rev. Simeon B. Lewis...

His wife was Barbara.

I believe he is my 3rd Great-grandfather.

in 1858 he took a land patent in Phelps Co. In 1860 the is an S. B. Lewis and wife B. Lewis living 2 houses away from J. F. Lewis and wife Sara. J.F. Lewis has 3 children listed
B. E. (F) age 12 born in INdiana, sons Issac and W.B also born in Indiana.

In 1830 Simeon Lewis has a land patent for Orange Co., IN... 1840 he disappears from the census... 1850 James L. Lewis wife Sarah (nee Pinnick married 1847 in Orange Co., IN) and daughters Barbara E. age 2 and daughter Susannah age 4 months are living on the land Patent by Simeon B. Lewis
I believe this is the same as the J. F. Lewis listed 2 houses away from Simeon in the 1860 census for Phelps Co.

In 1840 Thomas H. Lewis married Sarah Wininger. I have a copy of their Bible record that lists Simeon B. Lewis and Barbara as Thomas H. Lewis's parents.

Last known time that Simeon B Lewis was in Indiana was 1848 in Dubois Co. there is a court record for him.

Rev. Simeon B. Lewis married several people in Franklin Co. his son Abraham married Julia THornhill in 1857 in Franklin CO.
In 1880 Abraham, Julia Simeon B age 80 all live together. Abraham also has a son Simeon Beauford Lewis who married a Sarah. I have seen their lines on different sites.

I'm hoping someone can look to see if there is a will record for Simeon B. Lewis in Franklin or Phelps Co., MO between 1880 and 1890. Or if there is an Obituary maybe... I am certain that this is my 3rd Ggrandfather but would like to have proof.

Does anyone have more information on this line?
