Query: LEWIS/STEVENS of Parke, Marion, Ripley, Benton Counties

Looking for John Stephen LEWIS parents? He married Louisa Jane STEVENS 1849 Parke County. Also looking for a possible connection with Thomas LEWIS,who lived two doors from STEVENS Sr. residence.

John Stephen LEWIS b. 1823 (Marion County Family history or Ripley County Mexican War pension records). Bounty Land in Benton Co. 1851 with a William R. LEWIS (Possible brother) and Abraham BB LEWIS. Pension witness says he has known John Stephen since 1835 in Marion County. He left Indiana and was in Polk Co. Iowa in 1853. Census reads his Father born in KY, Mother N.Y

Thank You.
