I know this is a shot in the dark, but here goes. Our oral family history says that my gggrandfather was living in Pleasant Site Alabama up until around 1890. Legend has it that he owned a mill of some type there. We were told by my ggrandfather that carpetbaggers came in, killed my gggrandfather at the mill, and told the rest of the family that they had until dark to leave Alabama. My family then shows up in Arkansas in the 1900 census, but without my great great grandfather. The name of my great great grandfather was Thomas John Lewis. His wife was Mary W. Harrison Lewis. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
