In Reply to: Davis Family, Newton,Baker Co. , Ga. by elizabeth anne ingram of 151

My Davis family was in Baker County by, at least, 1835. They are listed in 1840 census.

I need info as to husband of Priscilla Davis (b. 1810 in North Carolina). She is listed as head of household in Newton District, Baker County,GA. in 1840. Family lore says there is Indian heritage, either thru Priscilla or her husband.

In 1840 census Priscilla Davis is listed living between George Long and Reuben Hatcher. Is she related to either of these men?

The following children are listed living with her in 1840 along with an unidentified female between 15-20 years old.
Is this another daughter, b. ca. 1815 to Priscilla or relative?

Her known children are:
1. Susan Davis, b. 1827, d. 1884 in Mitchell County, GA., married 1844,Baker County, John C. Frazier.
2. Sophronia Davis, b. June 1830 in Thomas County, GA., d. ca. 1910 in LaBelle, Lee County, FL, married 1846, Baker County to William Byrd Frazier (brother to her sister's husband, John C. Frazier)
3. John B. Davis, b. 14 Oct 1835 in Baker County, GA, d. 14 March 1900 in Lowndes County, Ga., married 14 Nov 1852 to Mary Ann Black (daughter of Douglass Black of Thomas and Irwin County, GA.
4. Emily J. Davis, b. 1837, Baker Co, Ga, d. 1880-1900 in Brooks ? Co, Ga., married 1852 in Baker Co, GA to William St. Johns.

I would greatly appreciate any help with this family.

Priscilla's children all left Baker County ca. 1852, and lived in Taylor and Marion County, Florida until 1879, except her daughter, Susan, married to John C. Frazier, who remained in Mitchell County.

Her son, John B. Davis and daughter, Emily J., married to William St. Johns, moved to Brooks County, Georgia in 1879. Her daughter Sophronia married to William Bryd Frazier, moved to Lee County, Florida after the Civil War and remained there until she died.
