In the 1850 US Federal Census for Jasper, Crawford, Arkansas, 60-year-old Kentucky-born farmer Henry and his 40-year-old Kentucky-born wife Jane A [Hobaugh] Lewis have in their household their children, 12-year-old Sarah, 10-year-old Elijah, 9-year-old Manerva, 8-year-old Margaret, 6-year-old Retty, and 4-month old Lucinda. All the children were born in Missouri, except the youngest, Lucinda, who was born in Arkansas. This would indicate that the Lewis family moved to Arkansas from Missouri after 1844 but before Aug 1850.
