I'm afraid I have a rather incomplete picture of this branch of the family.The following would appear to be the one you are looking for, but I don't have Ida Bell there.I'll go back as soon as I put in the more recent generations and then tell you what/who goes before Davis.
3. Davis Poulter (1829-1871) and Mary Sullivan
Davis Poulter was born in Henry Co. 16 July 1829 and d. 3 Feb. 1871.He m. 6 July 1859, Henry Co., Ky., Mary Sullivan, b. ca. 1838.They appear in the 1860 census of Henry Co. with son William T.[She is probably the M.J. Poulter, b. 1832, d. 1881, bur. in Smithfield cem., Henry Co., Ky.]
a. William T. Poulter, b. ca. 1859.[ Born 1860, d. 1865, bur. Smithfield cem., Henry Co., Ky.But who was the William T. Poulter who was appointed postmaster of Smithfield, Henry Co., on 17 May 1881?Could it be that the tombstone inscription was copied incorrectly?]
b. John Davis Poulter.[Born 1863, d. 1887, bur. Smithfield cem., Henry Co., Ky.]
c. Lemuel Poulter, d. 7 Jan. 1924, Jefferson Co., Ky., m. Margaret, b. ca. 1868.Lemuel Poulter, b. ca. 1866 does not appear in any Jefferson Co. censuses until 1920, when he is living with his wife and married daughter.This account assumes, without proof, that this is the same person.
(1) Mattie Poulter, b. ca. 1894, m. Sam Berry, b. ca. 1884.
(a) Marion Berry, b. ca. 1915.
d. Shelby Poulter, m. 26 Oct. 1892, Mattie L. Powell.[Perhaps he is the S.T. Poulter, b. 4 Oct. 1868, d. 9 Jan. 1900, bur. in Smithfield cem., Henry Co.]In the 1900 census of Henry Co., Mattie, b. July 1870, is living in her father's household with daughter Norena in the Smithfield-Eminence area.

The Family of William Poulter and Theresa Watkins
William Davis Poulter, born 19 March 1803, Jefferson Co., Ky.He marriedTheresa Watkins on 19 Feb. 1825 in Henry Co., Ky., and they made their home in Middletown, Jefferson Co.He died 23 February 1846 and she 30 April 1865. [ He is also found in the records as a witness to the marrige bond of Philip Cornwell and Eliza Arterburn on 5 June 1841 and was security of the marriage bond of William Able and Catharine Burk on 6 Jan. 1834.]May Speierman says their children were all born in Middletown.[Robert P. Moore:The author later contradicts herself by saying that Allen, Davis, and Squire were born in Henry Co., Ky.I have no explanation for this, and will simply repeat what she has said.]
[The 1850 census of Jefferson Co. lists this family with a female "C." as the head of household and with all the children except Jane.However, there is also a son Evan, b. ca. 1836, listed between Lucy Jane and Robert.]
And William is the son of the immigrant from Va. to Ky. William Poulter who m. Ann Marder(s).The elder William is the son of William Poulter, wife unknown, who died in Culpeper Co. Va.This first Wm.'s other three children, a son John and two daughters, settled in Mercer Co.
