Julia Frances Lewis was born July 1836 to Rose, one of the slaves of
Elizabeth Dickson (mother of David Dickson) and Joe Lewis, a white man
(according to Julia's testimony in the Dickson Will Case trial).
Joe Lewis and Rose supposedly had at least two more children, sons, Saeb
and John C. Lewis
Amanda America Dickson was born to Julia Frances and David Dickson in 1849,
when Julia was 13 years old.

and When "Servants Ride Horses" by Dorothy Morgan, as well as other reading.
I hope this information is helpful.
