Need info on Margaret Helm SCOTT, her husband Alpheus LEWIS, and their daughter Henrietta Clay LEWIS (b. 28 April 1852 in KY)

Surnames: Scott, Lewis
I'm looking for info on the Lewis/Scott side of my family.

My great-great grandmother, Henrietta Clay Lewis, was born on 28 April 1852 in Kentucky, USA.

Her parents were Alpheus Lewis and Margaret Helm Scott, also from Kentucky. (I found their marriage certificate on FamilySearch.org -- between "Alphius Lewis & Ming H. Scott" on 19 Sept. 1851 in Bourbon County -- but I don't have any more info.)

I THINK that Margaret Helm Scott might have been the daughter of Henrietta Povall Clay (b. 1 March 1808; d. 4 Nov. 1866) and Robert C. Scott, both of Bourbon County . . . but I'm not sure how to prove this, as Kentucky does not offer birth certificates prior to 1911.

If I could find a newspaper birth announcement for my great-great grandmother, Henrietta Clay Lewis; or any info about her parents and their parents, etc. . . . I'd be so grateful!

Thanks!

ETA: I think I may have found my great-great grandmother's sister on this website -- http://kykinfolk.com/bourbon/BirthDeathIndex.html

They list a "Manda M. Lewis" born to Alpheus Lewis and Margaret H. Scott in Bourbon county, Kentucky, in 1855. Brings me a little bit closer to finding a birth announcement/record for Henrietta. :)
