I am relatively certain SARAH Letha Stennett who married Stephen Lewis of Jasper County , MS, must have been a daughter of William and Elizabeth (Bynum) Stennett. The ONLY proof I have is they were censused next door in 1860.
The Civil War claimed the lives of both Stephen Lewis and wife. Their children were adopted out. I think some went by orphan train to Texas. These are some of the children.
I am relatively certain Stephen and Liddy (may be SARAH LETHA) Lewis died during the Civil War leaving
Civil War orphans,
Thomas Jefferson Lewis, married- Columbia "Lum", died in TX
Mary Josephine, censused 1860 Jasper County MS

Sarah, censused 1860 Jasper County MS

HARRIET ELIZABETH (censused 1860 Jasper County MS
(my ancestor), married C. W. Lindsey in Hood County, TX
Charles Lewis, lost on the orphan's wagon train- died in Erath County, TX
Sedora Frances, md Dr. Bandy, died in Texas
Bigby, censused 1860 Jasper County MS
Littleton, censused 1860 Jasper County MS

Alice Jemima, married John Washington Steen, a Tittle, and a Littlefield; died in Texas

and Jane,censused 1860 Jasper County MS

Do you know anything else about Elizabeth "of the Bahamas"
(according to one census)
and William Stinnett?


I've been searching for Sarah Letha Stinnett's (as well as Stephen Lewis' ancestors for several years.
