Ok John, you made me look :)

Riany Lewter female age 20 in the 1850 Mortality Schedule is listed as dead in May 1850. I checked all Lewters in Chatham, Wake and Orange for 1850 to make sure she wasn't in someone's home and was missed.... nope. Most of the 1850 Lewter families were enumerated in September, 1850, after this girl died. Then checked the 1840 census to see if anyone had daughters born about 1830 that I didn't have listed.... Bingo! Axum Lewter's family for 1840 has 2 kids I missed. Axum is enumerated in Orange County instead of Chatham, but this may be his daughter. Add the following to your database for Axum's family. Unknown Male LEWTER b btw 1830 and 1835 (1840 census only) Unknown Female LEWTER b btw 1830 and 1835 (1840 census only)

NOTE: Possibly the Riany Lewter, female, age 20 listed in the 1850 Chatham

Co., NC Mortality Schedule as having died of unknown causes in May of 1850.
