I suspect that Josiah's father Absalom is the brother of Amaziah's father Jonathan mentioned in your preceding message. If this is the case, the parents of Jonathan and Absalom may be Josiah and Ann Davisson of Harrison County Va (now WVA).Jonathan's birthyear is probably 1806, Absalom's would have been ca 1804, or possibly ca 1808; there were a number of children in their family and the only one I have any kind of a date for is Jonathan.
Ann was the 2nd wife of Absalom & Jonathan's father Josiah;our information has him to be about 63 when Jonathan was born. Families from both marriages were large. The names Absalom and Amaziah repeat in these families.
