Notes for Lucy B. Lewter:

 

Note: I have absolutely no documentation to show that Lucy was a daughter of Elias. I stuck her with this family only because she fit this family. She could very well have been the Unknown daughter of Hardy or a daughter of one of the other Luter/Lewter brothers or even a Luter widow. Perhaps in time we will find out who she is. I stuck her here simply so she would not get lost.

Neither Jeremiah nor Lucy found in 1860 Census

Lucy not mentioned in Jeremiah's will of 1859.

 

In 1859, Jeremiah P. Johnson of Northampton County, NC left a Deed of Trust, naming each of his living 8 children. Four of those children, Louisa, Elmira, Emma and Elizabeth, were of his first wife, name unknown. The remainder, Mildred, Margaret, Martha and Mary, were with his 2nd wife, Lucy Luter/Lewter whom he married 19 January 1822, in Northampton County. Now keep in mind that the daughter named above, Louisa, married Henry K. Lewter.

 

On the 1810 Census of Northampton County, NC, Sarah is listed with 9 children (we can account for only 6), with four of them being females under the age of 10 yrs. The only problem with this is that there is no Lucy mentioned in his will. If she had married Jeremiah Johnson and he was well enough of that Elias didnít feel like he needed to leave her anything. Or, perhaps, she had married Johnson against Elias wishes, thus Elias left her out of the will.
