I think that my great grandfather died in a fire accident in Carroll, Va. about 1889. He had been living in Surry Co. Mt. Airy, NC and was married to Tempy Taylor Johnson. They were the parents of my grandfather, Andrew K. Johnson. I would appreciate any leads or info. on Lewis A. Johnson. ... it is a real mystery. Surely, it would have been in the newspaper, but I don't which one. He was young and I guess a drunk...I don't know. Please if anyone has any leads, please contact me. Thanks so much.

I am searching for a James Lewis Henderson who married Sarah Elizabeth Henderson on June 14, 1865 in Granville Co NC. I hope that his father was James who was listed on the 1870 Census in the Fancy Gap District. James was listed as age 63 and Diahan as age 45. There is a Delilah Henderson age 55 next door who could be James' aunt. These ages would be consistent with being the parents of James Lewis Henderson. James Lewis Henderson named his first daughter Delilah. I am hoping someone has a clue.......Patricia Henderson London, Looking in LA
