Hi, Sharon - I'm glad the book (Wathen's Anthology) is helpful.....they're a great family!
Unfortunately, I know little of the spouses families unless someone sent them to me (or I simply tripped over them<G>). I have nothing on the four Davenports who married Wathens. I do know that Mary and Stanislaus Wathen are buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, St. Vincent, Ky., as are his parents, Thomas and Ann Symmes Wathen. The cemetery records have been published, I believe, but I don't have there here at home.
Stanislaus Wathen died 30 July 1871 in Waverly, Ky., Mary later than that (they were in the 1870 census) but before 1880 (at least I haven't found them in that census).
Stanislaus was born in Charles Co., Md. His father, Thomas, didn't sell the family land, Chesam and Charley, until Jan. of 1810. (Chas Co. Deed Bk IB#8, fol. 395). He was in Washington Co., Ky. by 1813 when he received the apprenticeship of Henry Sansbury, age 18, to "teach him the art of a carpenter." (Wash. Co. Deed Bk D, p. 250) By 1819 he was on the tax list in Union Co., Lost Creek and a lot in Morganfield.
I would look in Gallatin Co., Ill. for Mary Davenport. The two counties are adjacent and everyone went back and forth.
Let me ask you a question .......I have James R. Davenport, who married Louise Wathen and received a pension in 1912. I also have a John Davenport, who married Matilda Louise Wathen and had a daughter, Frances Leonora. Are they the same man? Unfortunately, I have no dates for any of them.
