Came across some information in searching for my Morris family line that I thought might be of use to someone. I have a lot more information on the Morris family, but none on the Davis family in this area.
The newspaper article quoted below was called Personalities of the Past, and was about Martha Anne Morris Davis. Martha Anne Morris m. Allen J. Davis in 1852 and they lived in Summerville, LaSalle County, Louisiana.
The Olla-Tullos Signal (newspaper)

"Her zeal and will to carry on and share with others knew no bounds. Her negro slaves, who seemed to catch this spirit, remained faithful to the end and delivered their best service. "We'll all eat as long as there's food,"she told them. Incidentally, the family's slaves were George and Lucy (slaves had not family names) and their children Harrison, Mary, Anne (note could be Mary Anne--KTD), Thomas and James Madison. After they were freed, they adopted the family name of "Pertue"and many of their posterity now live in the Jena Community."
