Lucy Lewis, the daughter of Elisha Berry Lewis and his second wife, Frances Eleanor Campbell, was the half-sister of my great-grandmother Martha E. Lewis (Moore). Christopher C. (I believe the “C” stands for Columbus) Hindman was the son of Patrick Hindman and Elizabeth Holliday. My information on the children is rather sketchy; most of it comes from the obituary of Christopher Hindman, Jr. As you can see, Lucy Lewis’ Hindman must have been 99 when she died. The SSDI for her actually gave her year of birth as 1878, but she shows up on the 1870 census as a two-year-old and on the 1880 census as a 12-year-old, so I took 7 February as the date of her birth from the SSDI and corrected the year to 1868. From the 1900 census onward, she becomes progressively younger.
