Notes for Alexander Marion Lewter:

 

1880 census, Dist. 1, Giles County, TN,

                     Lewis 6, son Tn.

                    Alfred B 4, son Tn.

                    Harriett 1, dau Tn.

I believe this man bought land from James M. Lewter, Alexander M. Lewter's

uncle. I also believe that this man is the man called "Andrew Luter" in the 1870

census. That man was 22 and had a wife Lucy, age 16; no children. They lived

next door to Lewis Luter, Black age 78 b. NC, & Jane, age 65 Black NC. These

people lived next to the Matthias T. Lewter (called Madison in 1870!) family, and also by Jane/Jincy Lewter, widow of Kinchen. Per John Burn's story (see other notes), could Lewis have raised Alfred as his own child, when in fact he was Kinchen's child, or the child of one of Kinchen's sons??
