22. LEWIS BURTON3 JOHNSTON (GEORGE GREGORY ("G.G." OR "GREG")2, LEWIS1) (#652) was born in McNairy County, Tennessee, on April 2, 1829. LEWIS died October 25, 1895 in Arkansas, at 66 years of age. His body was interred in Randolph County, Arkansas, Siloam Cemetery.

He married LOUISIANA on February 23, 1848. (LOUISIANA TENNESSEE SPENCER is #677.) LOUISIANA was born in Tennessee, July 24, 1831. LOUISIANA died December 3, 1909, in Randolph County, Arkansas, at 78 years of age. Her body was interred in Randolph County, Arkansas, Siloam Cemetery.

Note: (1): Charles G. only refers to his grandparents as "Grandfather Spencer", and "Grandmother Spencer," never mentioning their names. His grandfather was "a hunter and an early settler in Tennessee." He sez that his grandfather was of Irish descent and his grandmother was Welch. Recently we have learned that Louisiana Tennessee was the 9th child of Charles (1791-1856) and Sarah Reeves (1796-1855) Spencer.

(2) Milledgeville, Tennessee, is in the northeaster corner of McNairy County, Tennessee, about 14 miles northeast of Purdy, Tennessee.
