<> Mike Carr <> 17 Jan 2002 Name given as Lewis Thomas Gabbard. Born 1 Nov 1854.
Seems a bit odd to me that there would be sons named Thomas Lewis and Lewis Thomas - I suspect one of the names to be in error. The birth record states the child born in 1854 was Lewis Thomas Gabbard.

Lewis Gabbard & Jane Boles married by Granville Griffith, JP

Luther and Haley said to be children of Sula Raines. There was also a gap of 7 years between Elijah and Mahala - that would also suggest the death of a wife and remarriage. Sula was with Lewis in 1900. Mahaly and Hailey must be the same daughter.

1900 Census. Newton Co, Arkansas, Kentucky Township, Hh 216
Lewis Gabbard, b. Apr 1854, age 46, married for 19 years, b. KY, parents b. KY, Farmer
Sulie, wife, b. Apr 1861, age 39, married 19 years, 8 children - all living
Note: one wonders if the years married were assumed by the enumerator, or did Lewis marry Sula much earlier? The gap between Viley and Elijah suggests they married circa 1890 - or his birth is wrong. In 1910, Elijah was living with his brother John Thomas, and was said to be 20.
