The Descendents of Peter Lewis and Sarah ?

Peter Lewis can be found in the Censuses for Georgetown County in 1800 and 1830, then disappears from the Author's scope - perhaps moving away, perhaps dying. The Author is not 100% sure that his father was Benjamin Lewis, but deed transactions seem to indicate a relationship.

Deed transactions also indicate that his father might be Frederick Lewis, originally of Duplin County, NC. In the Horry Deed books, Peter seems to be acting on behalf of Frederick Lewis who apparently owned land in Horry County, SC around 1805. Frederick Lewis is certainly the brother of Benjamin Lewis (described above), so he could be Peter's uncle.

Another possible father could be William Henry Lewis (of another Lewis family) of Horry County, SC. Additionally, some county records indicate that Peter's wife's name was Harriett, perhaps with the last name of Green.
