In Fayette's Civil War Record there is a copy of a letter from Mrs. Hattie Lewis, 271 Canton Ave., Detroit, Mich., April 24, 1913. She wrote to the Bureau Pensions, Washington, D.C. Dear sir, Owing to death in family we are in search of one Fayette Thorn. Civil War Veteran last known address was 200 W. 51st St., Los Angeles, Calif. He being a pensioner you can send ? ? ? ? us as to his whereabouts. Further down from above message is type written - Fayette Thorn's address, 525 W. 43 rd St., Los Angeles, Cal. Ctf. No. 48631 Civil War. This shows that Hattie was living at above Detroit address in 1913 and Fayette was at his new address in CA. Question at this time is, who was it that died in 1913 in the family? Possibly James T. Lewis, husband of Hattie Lewis. She is widowed on the 1920 census.
