  • Name Mary Douglass

    John Lewis enumerated on census with a female age 20-29 in the home 
    Died 1840-1845 
    • per tombstone, died in the month of July
    • believe her death was circa 1840, if not before. John is enumerated on 1840 census in Iowa, but does not have an older female in the house. I take this as an indication that Mary was already dead. John remarried in 1845.
