  • Notes 
    • The DAR record gives her birth date as 6 Apr 1809. The 1850 census record has her as 41 years old which gives her an estimated birth date of abt 1809.

      1850 Census Dist 13, Doddridge Co., Virginia
      William B. Davis 42 m farmer VA
      Martha Davis 41 F VA
      Jonathan H. Davis 14 M VA
      Greenberry Davis 11 M VA
      Marion Davis 9 M VA
      Alvin M. Davis 7 M VA
      Sarah A. Davis 5 F VA
      Leah E. Davis 2 F VA

      Davis, William B. W M 72 married farmer WV PA VA
      Davis, Marthy W F 71 wife married keeping house VA GA GA
      (The record of Martha's parents being born in GA is an interesting lead as to Abigail's birth location, but so far, I have not been able to verify this by any other means. And we know her father was NOT born in GA, so perhaps someone gave the enumerator the wrong information??)
