Subject: [DAVIS ] DAVIES, William Henry; Brown Co., Indiana migrated to Hennepin, Putnam Co., Illinois

I wish I could say our William or his grandfather was born in Wales, but no
such luck connecting to such ancestor.

William Henry DAVIES was born in Elkensville, Johnson Twp., Brown Co.,
Indiana ca. Jan. 9, 1872. Married Mariah E. Stogdill ca. April 1879. Next,
I find him in Illinois...Putnam County...with his wife and 13 children!

William Henry's grandfather Isaiah (if that is his name--some reported
seeing the name of Isaac or Isa), b. ca. 1809 TN; m. Nancy
SHERRILL--ca.1840; b. ca. 1814 AL. This family is found in the Brown Co.,
Indiana 1860 census only.

Isaiah's son, Isaiah J., b. ca. July 10 1842; m. Mahala HEDRICK--ca.Nov.
1870; b. ca.1853 Brown Co., IN.

According to Brown Co., Indiana "Democrat" obit 11/22/1917 record D.2-71 and
reprinted in Nov. 19, 1936, Isaiah J. died Nov. 20, 1917, and buried in
Polley Hill Cem...Johnson Twp., Indiana.

Thanks for your interest.
