May be will be confusing some more. In my book
"Abstract Wills of Edgecombe NC 1733-1856" there is a listing of 6 CHERRY families and their wills. One listing is for an
AARON CHERRY on page 71. It follows:
Aaron Cherry January 16, 1835 November Court 1835
Book F page 182 My wife, Elizabeth, lend land whereon I reside, all negroes, stock and furniture. Son: Lunsford R. Cherry, 1 negro; Son; Lewis K. Cherry, reversion in land whereon I reside, 1 negro. Daughter; Sarah R. Jones, 2 negroes. Exr: Charles W.Knight, Jesse C. Knight. Wit: Asa Edmunson, James H. Savage. Edward Power.


So, your ggg grandfather, Lewis Knight Cherry is listed as son of Aaron, along with his mother Elizabeth listed.

Five years later, there is listing of an ELIZABETH CHERRY dated March 12, 1840, February Court 1841 book F, page 250
Daughter: Sally D. Jones, all my property of every description. Good notes amounting to $1000.00 to heirs of Lewis K. Cherry, deceased. Wit: Henry Austin

I hope this has been of help to you
If i can help further, let me know
