I am researching my great,great Grandfather Moses Davis, and his Father Joseph/John Davis.
I know that Moses was born on 24 June, 1831 in Greene County, Ohio. His Civil War pension lists his Father as a Joseph Davis, Mother unknown, but I have since found her name on the census as Mary.He married Manerva Jane Dennis in March of 1852 (Brown County, Illinois) - she died 9 months later. He then married Philena McGee (Agency City, Wapello, Iowa) in 1853. They had 5 children Mary J., Sarah L., William Robert, Charles Wesley (my line), and Clementine. I do know of at least four Brothers named John, James, Philip, Josiah/Joseph Davis - and one Sister Elizabeth (she married Samuel McNeal), and have heard rumour of possibly 2 other sisters.I have been unable to locate any specific information on Joseph/John Davis or his spouse. According to the 1880 census, both Moses and Philip list their parents as being born in Delaware. But I have also come across Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
I have found this family in the 1850 census in Brown and Schuyler County Illinois.
Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.
