John Balsley's 1871 probated will identifies nephew William Davison as an heir.The conclusion I have reached is that Amanda (Davis) Davison and Nancy (Davis) Balsley are sisters, because Nancy is the first child of James L. Davis and Mary (Garvin) Davis.
1879 atlas map identifies Wm. Davison owning land previously owned by John Balsley and originally purchased by James L. Davis.I believe that this 22 year old farmer is agrandson of Mary (Garvin) Davis.
