Our Family In Collin County Begins With Martin And Winnie Lewis.  Their Journey From Cocke County Tennessee To Collin County Texas Began In December Of 1867.

Martin Lewis was born in Cocke County Tennessee and moved to Collin County Texas in December of 1867. Little is known as to why they packed up and left a few days before Christmas in that year. What we do have is a story written by Martin's son, C.T. Lewis, given to his daughter who preserved it for the family. It tells of the trip that took them 3 months by boat, on foot, and wagon.
