Seeking information on the descendants of Alexander Davis born 1813 in Highland Co., Ohio, son of Elihu Davis and wife Love Barnard. He moved with his parent's family to Wayne Co., Indiana, then Cass Co., Michigan.

In 1850 he accompanied his younger brother Zeno Philosopher Davis to Nevada City, California. On the way Alexander's wife Sarah died of cholera near Bridgeport, Nebraska.

After arriving in Nevada City, Alexander was a building contractor and brink maker there. His brother Zeno and wife cared for his infant child. I know nothing of what happened to Alexander and his child.
