I need information on Andy Lewis born 1850-1865 possibly in KY and who fathered 2 children with Catherine Elizabeth Tomerlin who was born in 1961 in the Lockhart, TX area. Catherine is on the 1880 census as Catherine Tomerlin and her child Annie, age 2. Family legend is conflicted and inaccurate in some instances. He was said to be a Texas Ranger, but that is not proven, and I think he was part of the Army Rangers stationed at Fort Inge. He disappeared without the family knowing where he went.
I know there were Lewises in the area, and maybe someone has information on them, or could suggest where I might look. I have information and records on Catherine and her family, but nothing on Andy Lewis.
