  • Jacques Heureux lists the children of Solomon Lewis Dumond and his first wife Serena (Serener) Elizabeth Young.  He gives us the full name of their first child, John Lewis.  He provides no date of birth, but I was able to estimate this from the 1920 census.  And the 1900 census is helpful, even though it often is wrong by one or more years, as in Johhn's case reporting 1887, when in fact John was biorn in 1886.

    John Lewis married his stepsister Katie Watkins, enumerated in the blended family above.  The Ancestry transcription of their marriage record has his initials as S L instead of J L.  I have not seen the oriinal handwritten original.

    No record for John and Katie has been found in the 1910 census.

    In 1920, John Lewis is a few houses away from his father and step-mother, Solomon Lewis and Jennie Dumond, recorded on the next page of the Arkansas County census.  In this census, he is reported as Lewis J.

    Some time after entering this census information, I found Lewis' WWI registration, which provides some more details.
