James Oliver Lewis of Precept, NE ~1880s

Am searching for info on James Oliver Lewis, born Sep 25, 1883 in Precept, NE (Furnas county), died Jan 30, 1959 and buried in Phillipsburg, KS, some 39 miles distance from birthplace. Acc to 1896 US Atlas, Precept had all of 20 population. Cannot connect earlier than date and place of birth. Cannot find any historical info on Precept, except that it did have a school and post office by 1879. Family lore says that either James Oliver Lewis, or his father (or both) were teamster drivers from MO to NE, but have found no evidence to collaborate. James O Lewis first wife, Alice Knox, was born in Wilcox, NE, so believe there is --some-- connection here. Any help appreciated.
