Mary; A few notes... I belonged to HCPD for several years, but needed to slack off on email as I was moving, marrying, retiring and finding a retirement job. In 1980 (before PCs) I wrote and typed a 500+p book, "The Descendants of Thomas BARTLETT c1730-1806 of Fauquier and Harrison Co, VA", in which I listed, and indexed, about 10,000 descendants - most of whom lived or passed through Harrison Co.I've recently scanned and fixed the outline (into MS Word), but still have the index to go.It had/has always been my desire to donate a copy to HCPD (and any descendant), particularly because it touches, and sometimes develops, so many other families from the area.My goal has always been to determine all of Thomas BARTLETT's descendants, regardless of surname.
Anyway, from the manuscript, here are some Davisson links:
Reuben DAVISSON Jr c1822-? (son of Reuben + Susan) m Zerviah BARTLETT 1829-? (dau of Josiah BARTLETT m 1819 Abigail GOFF 1790-1880) Abigail was dau of Job GOFF + Zerviah WALDO; Josiah was son of William BARTLETT + Sarah HATHAWAY (both buried at Simpson, WV); William was son of Thomas c1730-1806.Reuben Jr and Zerviah DAVISSON had 7 ch incl. Hattie m Flavius DAVISSON; and Flora m John DAVISSON - I'd like to learn more about Reuben and Zerviah's children and grandchildren.
Also Mary BARTLETT 1824-? (dau of Josiah above) m 1842 Johnson C FLEMING 1815-1888 (son of James FLEMING + Elizabeth WELCH); they had a dau: Abigail FLEMING c1844-? who I think married a DAVISSON - can you tell me which one and any offspring?
Lucinda "Lucy" DAVISSON (dau of Hezikiah DAVISSON) m 1804 Jesse BARTLETT and they moved to New Madrid, MO.Jesse was the last surviving child of Thomas BARTLETT c1730-1806 - and I don't have any further info on him or his descendants - is there anything in the DAVISSON book?
Also: Alice DAVISSON m Enoch S GIBSON.Their dau, Gretna GIBSON 1891-? m Benjamin Harrison WOLVERTON and they lived in Doddridge Co.Benjamin H was son of Jasper N WOLVERTON 1857-1923 m 1877 Saphronia MASON 1860-1926 (dau of Abraham MASON + Emzy NEWLON). Jasper was son of Benjamin M WOLVERTON 1828-1909 m1847 Ann BROWN 1823-1900 (dau of George BROWN + Sarah BARTLETT - Sarah was dau of Thomas BARTLETT, Jr, son of Thomas c1730-1806).Benjamin M was son of Jacob WOLVERTON 1800-1888 m 1825 Catherine BARTLETT 1795-1888 (dau of Thomas BARTLETT Jr c7160-1832 + Sarah ? who both died in Preston Co - same as Thomas Jr above)
Hope some of this helps, and that the DAVISSON book may provide more info and leads...
