    Jesse DAVAR   9/28/98 9:38:28 PM Pacific Daylight Time
    Jesse DAVAR was born abt 1780 in Virginia. His Step-Father was Garrison TATE. Jesse married Martha CANE in 1806 in Claiborne, Tennessee. He died in 1860 in Monroe County, Indiana.

    Regarding the spelling of this surname: Pension Records from the War of 1812 give his name as Jesse Tate Dever. February 1833 land records give his name as Jesse Davar. His name is given as Jesse Davers in the 1840 census. His name is given as Jesse Davar in the 1850 census. August 1867 probate records give his name as JESSE DAVER. In the Claiborne Co. court records (1815 - 1823) his surname is spelled in all of the following varriations: Dever, Devers, Deaver, Deavers, Deavors, Davor, Daver, Devor, Davers.

    Adonigah FOX   9/29/98 2:52:45 PM Pacific Daylight Time

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.

    Davis, Elrod 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 County, Missouri.
    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) Elrod (seal)
    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.
