I have been off-line with computer problems, and just found your posting.
The land record that you found is really great! These sound like the younger children, for at that point I am sure all the rest were married and out on their own.
I found a Benjamin Lewis on the census records of Henry Co. but I am not sure it is the same one that you found.
A Benjamin Lewis is on the 1830 Henry Co. AL census with 14 in his household, 7m, 7f - with John Lewis nearby with a household of 3m, 1f (2m under age 5). Benjamin Lewis is on the 1840 Henry Co. AL census with a household of 5 (1f 15-20, 1f & 2m 20-30, amd 1m 60-70), so his wife died between 1840-1850. He is not on the 1850 census, but is on its Mortality Schedule.
Another correspondent sent me an email that said a woman in FL had written a book on him, and that his death date was Nov 16, 1840, but she never responded to any further emails. There was some reference to records in the Henry County Orphans Court regarding him, but I never followed up on that - maybe you can.
