I am looking for the family of Charles Davis and Anna Loiseau and in particular, Charles's parentage and ancestry.
Charles was my great-great grandfather. he married Anna Loiseau and they had my great-grandfather, Ernest. (On Ernest's death cert, it states that his father was born in Iowa.) I can't find any marriage records for them although rumor has it they married in 1884 and I don't know where I got that. This family is all in Moody County, BTW.
I think Charles' father was AMOS DAVIS, born in Clearfield Co., Penn in 1810-1811. However, his mother is more confusing. Amos DAVIS married PHEBE CALHOUN in Fayette Co., Indiana in 1847. She was the daughter of John CALHOUN and Elizabeth MIDDLETON. Together, Amos and Phebe had Elmira DAVIS and Emaline DAVIS. I suspect Charles was born in 1862 because the 1870 census shows him as 8 yrs old. HOWEVER. Phebe died in 1866 and Amos remarried Eliza ROSS in Jasper co., Iowa in 1869. Eliza had children from her first marriage and one of them was either C.F> or Charles F. so I am trying to determine which one, if any, was my Charles. Does anyone know anything about this family????
