    One genealogy compiled by Dixie Darter reports Henry's birth place as Lost Creek, Jefferson County, Tennessee.  There is no documentation or notes to explain anything.  This birth place matches other facts we know about his son John and wife Rachel, who were members of the Lost Creek Monthly Meeting of Friends.  This genealogy also reports an exact birth date which I find nowhere else and find no documentation or record for.  The date is consistent with estimated birth year based on census ages.  The genealogy has no death date.  Darter also has Henry's parents, Evan Lewis and Susannah Moon.
