Circle L Ranch, Hood County, Texas, USA

Fourth son of Samuel Lewis Felix Grundy Lewis(1845-1919) and Abraham Pinkney Green(1844-1927) were both young men in Fayette County, Texas, between 1870 and 1880. Abe Married Felix's little sister Jennie(1853-1927) and Felix married Sarah Ann Ligon(1853- 1918). Sarah's family had just moved from Virginia to Texas. Sarah's brother Ben (1851-1918)married another of Felix's young sisters, Catherine 'Kate' M(1852-1910). Felix and Abe moved around a bit before settling near Thorpe Springs, Hood County, Texas. They were both were interested in cattle and land and formed a partnership that lasted until they retired. They founded the Circle L Ranch in Hood county which was one of the larger ranches in the county at that time. Unlike most brother in laws, Felix and Abe got along better that blood brothers. They even bought a joint plot in the Granbury Cemetery for both families to be buried in. Felix, Sarah, Ben and Jennie and many of their kids are all buried together. I took pictures of all the gravesites and have started posting them with each of ones involved. Felix's oldest brother Uncle Burwell 2nd Cavalry (1830-1864) died in the Civil War in a Union POW camp. His other brother, Uncle Andrew Jackson (1839- 1857 (my great-grandfather) was involved in the Civil War as well. Their father, Samuel Knight Lewis 1807-1870 had a brother , Andrew Jackson, that left Alabama before Samuel came to Texas. He got involved in the war between Texas and Mexico and was captured and thrown in prison in Northern Mexico. He escaped prison and starved to death in the mountains subsequently. I gather from family history that if a war was on, one of them was involved. Thanks to Neil G. Lewis, Granbury, Hood, Texas, USA (Cousin)
