I am searching for the parents of Jacob Lewis who was born in Houston Co, GA on February 7, 1811. Their names are possibly James and Martha Lewis.
Jacob came to Texas to fight in the Texas Revolution. He fought at the Battle of Bexar
in December 1835. This means that this is the approximate time he left Georgia.

Jacob Lewis Jr. born 7 February 1811 Houston County Georgia was my GG grandfather. He married Pernetty Harris 20 June 1838. Came to Nacogdoches, Texas fall of 1835. I am looking for his mother. I found one marriage but 5 years late. It was in Barron's Military District to a Jacob Lewis and Elizabeth Johnson. Jacob Lewis Sr. was born 1178 In Guilford, N.C.

If we have the right Jacob, he was born 25 May 1778 in Gilford, Guiford, N.C to Jacob Lewis 24 May 1750 and Sara Avery Noland 16 January 1749. His son Jacob Lewis Jr. was born 7 February 1811 in Houston County Ga. He died before 1860 in Nacodoches, Texas and buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery. I can not find a marriage for a Jacob Lewis that makes any sense to me. One to Alcy Leonard 20 Feb.1772 makes him 13 years old, another to Elizabeth Montogomery is 5 years or so after Jacob Jr.was born. Some Nacogdoches people think here name was Martha, maybe. Any way the Jacob buried in Nacodoches is my 3rd great grandfather.
