Hi Shelli,

I don't have enough information to answer your question. Have not yet identified the family of Louis B. Revis with any confidence. Best fit we have at this point is an entry in the 1850 census from Williamson County, TN. Louis B. is thought be represented simply by "L" and the enumerator only used initials for this family. Father was a "J" born in NC in 1805 and mother was a "M" born in TN in 1813. Other females in this family as recorded in 1850 were "J" born in 1829, "N" born in 1835, "M" born in 1842, and "Mary" born in 1849. Female "J" born in 1829 may be your ancestor and used another given name???

I have not found this family in any subsequent census records to better document names. Has been suggested to me to research other Williamson County records but have not gotten to this task yet! Louis B. did live in Lauderdale County, TN, so there may be some connection.

Thanks for your response and please let me know if you get any additional information or clues.

With warmest regards,

Paul N. Revis
