Hi Liz, Thanks ever so much for this info! I am trying to document husband and maiden name of my ggggdmother, Priscilla married to ? Davis.
My ggggdmother, PRISCILLA DAVIS (b. 1810 in North Carolina)is listed living in "Newton District" , Baker County, Georgia in 1840 census as head of household with three females, ages under 5 to 20 and one male, age 5 under 10. She had three girls and one son whom we have been able to identify: No. 1: SUSAN DAVIS, b. 1827. No. 2: SOPHRONIA DAVIS, b. 1830. No. 3: EMILY J. DAVIS, b. 1836. JOHN B. DAVIS, b. 1835.
The No. 2 daughter, Sophronia Davis, b. 1830, said she was born in Thomas County, Georgia (source: Confederate widow's pension record). My gggdfather, John B. Davis, b. 1835 was born in Baker County Georgia (source: Confederate Soldier's pension record).
In the 1840 Baker County census, Priscilla Davis is listed as head of household in next listing after GEORGE LONG and next to REUBEN HATCHER. (In other words, listed between George Long and Reuben Hatcher.)
In 1850 census, Priscilla and her youngest daughter, Emily, are living in the household with her married daughter Sophronia Frazier (her husband was William Byrd Frazier) in 9th District of Baker County. This area was given to help form Mitchell County in 1857.
I found all the children in 1860 living in Florida, but not their mother.
Last census Priscilla is listed is 1870 Mitchell County, 9th District. I am assuming she died between 1870-1880.
I do appreciate any help I can get with this "stone-wall".
