Notes for S
ARAH JANE DAVIS:
[Bracey.paf]

Sarah Jane Davis was born Sarah Jane Bracy. She was born on the Wiley Long farm on April 20, 1877. She lived alone with her mother. According to the Census of North Carolina-Northampton County (Occoneeche Township), Sarah, age 2, and her mother Bettie lived in a house alone until her sister Annie was born on November 9, 1880. Her sister Millie was born in 1882. Her mother met a man of Blackfoot Indian descent by the name of Ned Raspberry Davis, the son of Calvert and Hulda Davis of Gaston, North Carolina. They were married on Dec 1884 in Seaboard, North Carolina.
Her name became Sarah Jane Davis. Her sisters, Annie and Millie, names were changed also. Raspberry was a strong, lumberjack-size man with big hands and feet. Sarah respected him as her father, even though she didn't know her real father.
As I was told was that Sarah was a tall, stout, brown-skinned, talkative woman with brown eyes and black straight hair. She always talked about family and her past. She respected her mother and grandmother to the highest. She was not to be played with because if you stirred her, she would give you a conversation that would last a lifetime.
Five children were born to her mother, Bettie and Raspberry Davis. Raspberry died in April 1899 in Seaboard, North Carolina. Her step-father was only 33 years old.
Sarah Jane Davis married Silas Bynum on December 20, 1894 in Seaboard, North Carolina at the Bill Braddie farm. They were 10 years apart in age. Their marriage was considered one of the most beautiful weddings in Northampton County, North Carolina history.
Sarah and Silas had thirteen children from 1895 to 1919. Betty Anne, Mary Emma, Lenora, Alma, Wiley, Susan, Fannie, Henry Wilkins, Lucille Georgia, Lil Stewart, Brutus Joseph, and Jessie Vera were There children. All the children were born in Seaboard, North Carolina. According to the 1900 Census of North Carolina-Occoneeche, Silas and Sarah had three children: Betty, Emma, and Lenora. Landis, Sarah's brother, age 10 and Nelson, Silas's father lived on the farm with them.
In September 1901, Nelson, old sickly, and partially blind, was lying in his bed when he knocked over a kerosene lantern while reaching for a lantern. He had been talking about seeing his first wife, Annie. The house caught on fire and Nelson was burned to death. Silas was hit hard by his father's death. He was buried in Seaboard, North Carolina. They had a daughter, Alma, the same month.
In 1905, Sarah gave birth to twins, Susan and Fannie. They were two beautiful girls. They were sickly all the time. At the end of 1907, they became gravely ill. Susan died in December after turning two years old. Fannie died 20 days later from the same illness.
In 1908, Sarah and Silas moved to the Bill Braddie farm once again were Henry Wilkins was born. They sharecropped for Bill Braddie. According to the 1910 Census of North Carolina-Northampton County (Occoneeche), Sarah and Silas had seven children in the home.

In 1912, Lucille Georgia Bynum was born in Seaboard. In 1914, Lil Stewart was born. According to Alma Davis, everyone had whooping cough except Lenora and her on the day Lil Stewart was born. Brutus Joseph was born in 1917. Jessie Vera was born in 1919. According to the 1920 Census of North Carolina-Northampton County (Seaboard Township), Sarah and Silas had ten children at home with Betty living with her husband, Oral Smith in another part of the county and Susan and Fannie already deceased at the time of the census taking.
Sarah's mother and her sibling caught the train to visit her quite often because she could leave North Carolina on a train or any mode of transportation. She was a down home country lady just like her husband. She didn't trust "city folk". Therefore, her family would visit her in North Carolina. They would have a wonderful time together, visiting family and friends. Sarah would make sure she let everyone know who were her mother, sisters and brothers. They would visit on holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving.
In 1924, Maddy Lee Bynum, their thirteen years old daughter, died on her birthday. The family was shocked by her lost. They put her body in the parlor until they buried her. She was buried in the Brassey Cemetery in Garysburg, North Carolina.
In 1930, Sarah's mother, Bettie died in Portsmouth, Virginia. Her brother, John Davis, sent her a telegram about their mother's death. She had no choice but to come to Portsmouth for the funeral. Silas and Sarah packed up their bags and went to Portsmouth to Mom ma Bettie's funeral. She was buried on January 30, 1930 by Roger's Funeral in Portsmouth. She was buried in Lincoln Cemetery.
The winter of 1935 was a very harsh winter in North Carolina. Sarah was working hard to get the child and her husband ready for the winter ahead. According the Evelyn Thomas, her daughter Lenora's child, she was sickened with pneumonia just before Christmas. She was bedridden for a short time. Evelyn caught a train back to Portsmouth where she lived when she found out later that her grandmother had died as she was returning to Portsmouth.
Sarah and Silas were married for 41 years when Sarah became sick. She died on December 27, 1935 from pneumonia in Seaboard, North Carolina. She was 58 years old. She was buried on December 29, 1935 by Faison Funeral Home in Seaboard, North Carolina. She was buried in the Brassey Cemetery in Garysburg, North Carolina.
