Limestone Co Cemetery book has been checked, but no Lewters listed for Round Island. Frank Irons went to Round Island April 2002 and did not see a

gravestone for Henry.


Up until about the mid 80ís there was a stone for Henry located just about where the back door is on the new addition at Round Island Baptist Church. My Uncle James Lewter lived for many years just a little piece down the road from the church where I visited him many times over the years.
