I am looking for information on the family of Adonigah FOX
b. Oct 13,1841 probably in Claiborne Co., TN. He served in 8th Tenn Vol.
Infantry in Union Army during the Civil War. He later moved to Knox Co.,
KY in 1865 where he married Martha Leger (her family may have originally
been from Claiborne/Hancock Co.) and raised their family. Any information
would be appreciated.

and Sullivan Families 9/29/98 8:49:17 AM Pacific Daylight Time
I've posted queries on this group a lot of times, but this
time it's a bit different. I got a copy of a deed sale in Claiborne County
(book z page 136) from Claiborne's Deed Office. This is from June 9th,
1855. In the deed some of the children and sons-in-law of Alexander Davis
are giving this land to another one of Alexander's sons, Walter Davis.
I suspect that the Washington Davis mentioned in this deed is the same
as my Wash Davis, who I have been unable to trace with confidence back
out of Christian County, Missouri in 1859. My Wash was born in Tennessee
and had married there to a Jane LAWSON, whom he divorced by 1859. They
had a daughter, Mary, in 1852, and she came to Missouri with her Dad. Jane
Lawson remarried a John PARKEY or PERKEY and had a daughter, Vesta on Christmas
day, 1862. They may have had other children. Wash remarried in Christian
- Anyway, on this deed, at the signature part is listed
all the names, like this:
- Washington Davis (seal)
- Wiley Davis (seal) (as to Washington D.) Joshua Davis
(seal) James Wilson Rowen Elrod (seal) Joseph Davis Martha (her mark x)
- John Sullivan (seal)
- Lucinda (her mark x) Sullivan (seal)
- My question is to the "as to Washingotn D"
beside Joshua's name; does this mean that Washington assigned Joshua to
sell (actually give) his land away? Washington, if he was the same as my
great Grandpa Wash Davis was not listed with a wife here, and this deed
is listed as having been written in 1851, though the witnesses of James
Wilson and Joseph Davis to the county clerk and other documents before
the actual deed are listed as taking place between 1855 to 1856. My Wash
was married around 1852, but for how long, I don't know. So, does anyone
know what the "as to" statement could mean, and is anyone researching
the Elrods, Sullivans or this Davis line? Or even Jane Lawson's line? All
those listed in the deed were sons, daughters and sons-in-law of Alexander
Davis and Mary Gouger. Some of Alex's other kids married into the Pearson
family. Any information would be appreciated.
