Does anyone have any information on LEWIS MONROE (MUNRO) who lived in Howard Co. in 1827? I have a tax receipt showing his name for that year. It was in the possession of James Stewart Monroe (1814-1884) who was b. in Howard Co. and in 1852 moved to Oregon and then to California. I assume Lewis was James Stewart Monroe's brother and thus a son of William M. Monroe and Jerusha Williams, but I have no evidence other than the tax receipt.
