Moses Davis and Family
Posted by: Laneya Rino (ID *****1054) Date: October 04, 2006 at 17:23:52

I am searching for information on Moses Davis (my GGGrandfather) born in Greene County, Ohio, in 1831, he married Manerva Dennis of Mt. Sterling, Brown, Illinois in March of 1852 - daughter of Dr. Dennis. Manerva died in October of 1852. He later married Philena McGee (Magee) my GG Grandmother in Wapello County, Iowa.

I am looking for his parents and siblings, I believe his father to be Joseph Davis, mother Mary (Bigelow)Davis - both being born in Delaware and married in Greene County Ohio, siblings John (Unknown birth year), Elizabeth born about 1820, James M. born 1822, Philip born about 1830, and Josiah (also known as Joseph) born about 1832 - all in Greene County, Ohio. I have obtained this information from Moses's Civil War pension records, and there may be additional siblings that I am unaware of.

Elizabeth married Samuel McNeal on the 3rd of February 1836 in Greene county, Ohio.

The family moved to Illinois around 1846. I find them on the 1850 and 1860 censuses in Schuyler and Brown County.

Moses also lived in Wapello County, Iowa, then moved to Nemaha and Otoe County, Nebraska in the 1870's

I would appreciate any help or information on my family. Thanks
