Notes for Annie Rebecca Lewter:

 

Madison left everything to Kitty and she died in 1918. Annie Rebecca Lewter's family lived 'next door' to the east and Tenella Lewter's family lived 'next door' to the west. All these folks were very close and all the kids grew up together and their kids kids grew up together and on and on. I don't know the dynamic that made Madison choose these two children to benefit after Kitty's death, though. I've always figured the three sisters either died or married between 1880 and 1900 as they don't show in 1900.
