Descendants of Sophia Jackson

Generation No. 1

      1.  Sophia2 Jackson (John Jackson1 Sr.) was born 22 September 1763 in Howard’s Lick, Hampshire/now Hardy County, (West) Virginia, and died 10 March 1836 in Turkey Run, Lewis/now Upshur County, (West) Virginia.  She married Josiah “Joseph” Davis about 1785.  He was born 09 May 1767, and died 18 October 1832 in Lewis/now Upshur County, (West) Virginia.

Her will probated in 1836 was dated December 10, 1832 in Lewis County. She signed with her mark in the presence of H. Jackson, Isaac Dix and Elizabeth Dix, probated June 1836. Appraisement Bill, W B A, p. 243, Admx. G. Rohrbough, son-n-law, WBA, p. 319.

She and Joseph may be buried in the old Jackson / Brake cemetery located on the Hull farm on a knoll overlooking the intersection of Turkey Run and Route 20 in Upshur County, WV.  There are several grave indentation – 25 – 30 and several scattered field stones.  Some engraved stones were removed by the farmer, one of which was the stone of Warren Jackson, brother of Stonewall Jackson, who died on Turkey run. This was probably at one time the John Jackson Jr. farm.  Josiah and Sophia lived a short distance up Turkey Run near the Pringle Tree on the Old Carper farm – the old Carper house is still standing (1995) but is in very poor condition.

19. 1833. Brake vs. Brake. Oratrixes John B. Brake, Joseph Shreves and Elizabeth   his wife and Isaac Reager and Mary Magdalene his wife which said John, Elizabeth, and Mary Magdalene are children and heirs of Jacob Brake claimed their brother Abraham Brake was fraudulent in obtaining a deed of Jacob Brake’s property.  Prior to his death in “Feb.” 1831 Jacob Brake had lived many years in the Buckhannon Settlement.  Abraham W. Brake accused of being “connected with a lewd woman” had lived for many years with his parents.  Plts. [plaintiffs] complained Abraham did not contribute to welfare of parents and was disrespective to them.  Jacob Brake’s wife [Mary Slaughter] died in 1830.  It was claimed Abraham took advantage of his father’s mental state and obtained a deed by fraud. Depositions were taken in Lorentz from Jesse Slaughter [Mary Slaughter's brother] who had known Jacob Brake about 40 yrs.  Abraham Brake was the elder son of Jacob Brake. Abraham stated his father’s death occurred in the year 1831 on or about 7 January abt seventy six years of age.  Abraham W. Brake in his response stated he was married about 1806 and had one child, that he never left his father’s residence. He lost his wife about eleven months after their marriage.  Abraham stated that [from] about 1812 when his brother John married until death of their father, the respondent was the only male person who resided with their father.  He stated he had to perform “menial duties apertaining to females as well as the masculine labor of farming.”  It was understood that in consideration he was to have the home farm.  He stated that the respondant’s child never lived with him while he resided with his father but lived with and was maintained by their other friends.  Abraham claimed his father deeded the property to him without his knowledge until completion of the transaction.  Abraham Reger was mentioned as a son-in-Iaw to Jacob Brake [Abraham married Jacob's daughter, Leah Anne]. A deposition was taken from Jacob Brake’s grandson Adam Shreves [Elizabeth Brake Shreve's son]. In the file, it was mentioned Jacob Brake went to Buckhannon to vote for the Constitution and this surprised his son Abraham.  Jacob Brake departed life intestate and the essence of this case is that plts. claimed Abraham W. Brake deprived his siblings of equitable share of their father’s property through fraud.

5.  William Jackson3 Davis (Sophia2 Jackson, John Jackson1 Sr.) was born 31 December 1791 in (West) Virginia, and died 05 November 1850 in Brown County, Illinois. Burial: Howes Cemetery, Lee Township, Brown County, Illinois. He married Lydia Gould 11 April 1815 in Lewis County, (West) Virginia, daughter of Aaron Gould and Lydia Gray.  She was born 02 February 1794 in Charlemont, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, and died 04 January 1859 in Brown County, Illinois. [Her birth calculated from Brown County Cemetery Reading of 61y10m21d, makes her birth 14 Jan 1797.] Burial: Howes Cemetery, Lee Township, Brown County, Illinois.

George Perkins genealogy [query to Jackson Brigade, Inc 11/10/1997] says he died in Brown County the cemetery reading “William J. Davis d. 5 Nov 1850 age 57y10m4d.  Calculated this would give his birth date as 1 January 1793, which conflicts with the typed copy of the Bible Record of E. J. Rohrbough, which gave his birth as December 31, 1791.

The following is from a letter (January 1966) from Russell Sage Davis to Ann Noel Perkins: [George Perkins, 2007, submitter]

“Ann, the Davis branch of your family tree has been recorded for the last five generations with reasonable accuracy from family records, bible entries and published obituaries.

Davis is an English name and most of it’s families trace their origin in the USA to the Virginia colony; many of them to land grants from the Queen of England.  The lineage is usually easily traced as far back as the Revolutionary War.  But the tracing becomes difficult beyond that time.  It is tradition in English law for the oldest son to inherit all his father’s estate; the younger members of the family had to rustle for themselves.  This tradition is the basis for much of England’s colonial development.  The Revolution, in fact, was a war between the younger members of the family who came to America and their elders at home.  They were enemies now.  This makes it difficult to couple up family ties across the Atlantic.

So far as I have been able to trace, our Davis lineage began with Joseph Davis, born May 9, 1757; died November 18, 1832.  He married Sophia Jackson in 1874; she was six years the younger of the pair.  He lived to be 75, she to 73.  Ten children were born to this union: John, Mary, Elizabeth, William, Edward, Sarah, Henry, Joseph, Obedience, and Margaret, — five boys and five girls.  Their first born died at 18 years, and Mary at 11 years.  All the others except Joseph married and produced the foundation for many other Davis families.  I have heard my father speak often of his uncle Edward Davis.  He settled somewhere in the midwest, but I don’t know just where.

William Jackson Davis, fourth child of Joseph and Sophia, is the one from which our lineage continues.  He was born December 31, 1791 (a New Year’s gift) and died November 5, 1850, age 59.  He married Lydia Gould, and to them were born four children: Jackson Gould, Isabel, Sophia, and Lydia.  William Davis was a short, heavy man; his wife tall and slender.  They lived near Wheeling, West Virginia; moved to a campsite in the Illinois River bottom not far from Versailles, Illinois in the fall of 1830; then on to a farm southeast of Clayton, Illinois in the spring of 1831. William was 39 years old at that time; his only son, Jackson was 14, and his youngest, Lydia, was nine (she died in November of that year).

How come this family moved to Illinois?  A brother-in-law, Oliver Howes, a few years before had pioneered on 160 acres given him by the government.  On March 21, 1831, Howes sold 97 acres of this tract to William J. Davis for $232.50.  Today (1966) this tract would bring $38,500.  Two years later, in May of 1833, Howes and William J. Davis bought an adjoining 160 acres for $200.  This became the family homestead and is located half way between Timewell and Clayton, on the south side of U.S. 24.  This man Howes must have been a real prince.  I have heard my father speak well of him time and again.

The Davis line continues through William J. Davis’ son, Jackson Gould Davis.  He was my paternal grandfather.  Jackson was born January 30, 1816; died 1893 (sic) age 77.  He was 14 when his father’s family moved to Illinois.  He was a short, sandy complexioned man; and was 30 when he married Mary Chipman, she was 10 years younger.  To them were born five sons: Cyrus Judson, Oliver, Eugene Seth, Jesse, and Oscar.  Only three of this family of boys ever married.

Jackson Gould Davis took over the operation of the farm from his aging father.  In addition, he was a skilled carpenter.  Many of the seemingly indestructible, morticed-and-pinned, framed barns still standing in the community (Clayton, Illinois) are relics of his handicraft.  The smaller barn at Glenhaven (Russell S. Davis’ farm), built in 1880, is one of these.  He was an artist in mortice, dovetail construction, and lathe operation.  He made most of the cabinets, dressers, chairs and furniture in their home, and for his newly wed sons.  Many of his dressers and chairs are still among today’s antiques.  Material for both buildings and furniture was sawed from native trees.  He even made his own lathe, work bench, and vise; even the wood screw for his vise was turned out on his home-made lathe.

My father, Eugene Seth Davis, was the third son of Jackson Gould Davis’ family.  Born October 20, 1852, and died from cancer of the prostate, May 17, 1930, age 78.  He married Rozina (Rosa) Hopper in February 1879.  She was the oldest daughter of Harrel B. Hopper, a farmer living two miles west of the Davis’.  The Hoppers moved to Illinois from Virginia in 1839, nine years after the Davis migration.  Like his dad, my father didn’t marry young.  He was 27, and mother 24.  Dad was a six footer, bald ever since I knew him, and a wore tightly twisted, sandy powderhorn mustache.  He was a money maker — enough to give each of his sons a good start and still leave a sizeable estate.  He made more money feeding forty head of cattle a year than I have made on the same acres feeding 250 head.

My mother, Rozina Hopper, died of a stroke, July 23, 1907, age 52.  I was just out of High School.  Three years later, January 19, 1910, father married Agnes Hopper, younger sister of my mother.  She was 47, (father 58), and had spent much of her early years caring for her aging parents.  She was sure of hardy constitution — outlived father by 24 years.  She died at 90, of stroke, by far the oldest of the Hopper tribe.

In my father’s family there were but two children: Fred Hopper Davis, born September 22, 1884, died 1958.  He married Doral Marshall, out of a family of thirteen children, but they had no family; Russell S. Davis, born May 19, 1890.  If family planning is a virtue, dad and mother earned a badge of merit.  They were married 66 months when their first child was born, and another 66 months elapsed between the first and second birth.

Getting back to the Jackson Gould Davis family lineage:  Oliver Davis, born September 1, 1850, died February 28, 1904.  He remained a bachelor, managed a grain elevator and feed enterprise at Bentley, Illinois.  Jesse C. Davis, born November 22, 1858.  He married Delia Lester, had on son Claude, lived on a small farm west of the Davis homestead until the early 1900s when they moved to California.  He and his family are all buried out there.  No record.  Oscar Jay Davis, “Yockey” as he was called, born November 7, 1864.  Being the youngest of the family of five, he was given the old homestead when his aging parents retired and moved to Clayton, Illinois.  He was to care for his parents in exchange for the farm.  Apparently he lacked the judgement and maturity of his elder brothers.  He soon sold the old farm, for less than it was worth, took the money and disappeared.  The only letter from his was postmarked in Hilo, Hawaii.  If he lived out a normal life span, he did it under an assumed name.  Other Clayton residents moving to California reported seeing a man they felt sure was Oscar, but he was never definitely recognized.  Oscar’s father died soon after moving to Clayton.  His mother lingered several years and never gave up hope the “Yockey” would return.  But he never did.  He was a member of the Blue Lodge of Masons, even they were never able to trace Oscar’s wanderings.

Cyrus Judson Davis, eldest of Jackson Gould’s sons, married a neighbors daughter, Emma Watson.  Their son, J. Otis Davis, married Pauline Hopper, a niece of my mother, and raised a large family.  Cyrus J’s two daughters, Lana, and Merle, both married but fell victims of cancer early in their married life and left no children.

William Jackson Davis, his wife Lydia and daughter Lydia, and son Oliver are buried in the family lot at Howes cemetery which joins the family homestead on the east.  Cyrus J. Davis, his wife Emma, Eugene S. Davis and both his wives, Rozina and Agnes, Fred H. Davis and wife Dora, are all buried in their respective lots in Mound cemetery, a mile north of Timewell, Illinois.

Ann, all of the above information is from family records, handed down from one generation to another.” [George Perkins Genealogy, March 2007]

From Cemeteries of Brown County, IL [Perkins 2007]

William J. Davis came to Brown County in 1830, stopping at the Vandeventer settlement until the spring of 1831 when he came to Lee township. The first post office in the county was established at his house and it was called Davidson Post Office, and he was the first post master.

“In some undocumented notes, source unknown, I have William Jackson Davis, b. 31 Dec 1791; died Oct 1850; married April 11, 1815 Lydia Gould, born Feb 2, 1794; died January 4, 1859, daughter of Asron and lydia (Gray) Gould. Three children: Jackson Gould Davis, Isabell and Sophia Davis. I have not been able to find a marriage record in Harrison County and surrounding counties. His parents had the property at the mouth of Turkey Run, which is where the Pringle Tree is located, where John and Elizabeth Jackson first settled. [Nancy Jackson researcher]

The will of Joseph Davis, father of William Jackson Davis, was written September 1832 and probated November 1832 in Lewis County. He willed William J. Davis, one shilling which is the amount given to the other children.

 

Children of William Davis and Lydia Gould are:

6.  Edward ” Edmund” “Elmore”3 Davis (Sophia2 Jackson, John Jackson1 Sr.) was born 20 February 1794 in (West) Virginia, and died 20 October 1836 in Adams County, Illinois.  He married Eleanor “Nelly” Stout 17 February 1817 in Harrison County, (West) Virginia, daughter of Caleb Stout.  She was born Bet. 1790 – 1800 in (West) Virginia, and died before 1850 in probably Adams County, Illinois.

This family was living in Adams County, Illinois in 1840.

***

“Another daughter, Eleanor, in 1817, married Edward Davis, fifth child of Josiah Davis and his wife Sophia Jackson Davis, daughter of John and Elizabeth Cummins Jackson of the Stonewall Jackson line.  In fact, Sophia was Stonewall’s grandfather’s sister. Through the years following 1820, Edward and Eleanor accumulated considerable land on Major Power’s Run. In 1846 (possibly typo and should read 1836) they secured 108 acres on Rooting Creek.  Later they bought a house and lot in Johnstown opposite the old blacksmith shop.  At the death of her husband, in 1837, (this date conflicts with the 1846 date above) Eleanor received her share of the estate, and the balance went to her only child, a son, Washington J. Davis, a lawyer of Lewis County.” [Stout History: Waldmore, Clarksburg, WV].

 

Children of Edward Davis and Eleanor Stout are:

+       18                 i.     Washington Jackson4 Davis, born 15 November 1817 in (West) Virginia; died 09 October 1857 in Clayton, Adams County, Illinois.

The Heirs of Edward Davis were listed in an 1839 Lewis County West Virginia Chancery File: William Sexton vs. Edward Davis Heirs: Washington, Julia Ann, Elinor, Elizabeth, Rebecca, Clemanza, Dyurnal, Amanda and Edward. [Nancy Jackson, researcher – Lewis County Order Book 1:93, Fall 1839 case ended]

In the 1830 census for Lewis County, (West) Virginia, the Edward Davis family had 6 children, 4 girls and 2 boys.

In 1840 Eleanor Davis was listed as head of the household living in Adams County, Illinois with 1 male under 5, 1 male 5-10, 1 male 10-30, one female 5-10, one female 10-15, 1 female 15-20 and one female 30-40..this last female would be Eleanor. She was not found in the 1850 census and presumed that she died by then and there was no second marriage for a Mrs. Eleanor Davis in Adams.

 

Following for research purposes only: Marriage in Adams County, Illinois- more research needs to be done to determine if any of these women are descendants of Edward and Elinor.

7.  Sarah3 Davis (Sophia2 Jackson, John Jackson1 Sr.) was born 02 October 1795 in Harrison County, (West) Virginia, and died 23 February 1839 in Lewis County, (West) Virginia.  She married George Peter Rohrbough 27 May 1817 in Lewis County, (West) Virginia.  He was born 01 May 1792 in Hardy/Pendleton County, (West) Virginia, and died 07 December 1874 in Elvaston, Hancock County, Illinois.

In 1854 George Rohrbough sold out to Reuben Hevener and headed west accompanied by some of his grown children and their families. Initially he settled in Quincy, Hancock County, Illinois where he remained for six years, then settled on a farm near Elvaston in Prairie Twp., Hancock County, IL.

Obit:

“George Peter Rohrbough was born in Hardy County Virginia on the South Branch of the Potomac River May 1st, 1792 and died in Hancock County, Illinois on the 7th day of December, 1874 at the advanced age of 82years 7 months and 7 days. The deceased moved with his father to the residence on the Buchanan [sic] river and lived with his father until 1818 at which time he was married to a Miss Sarah Davis. Three years after his marriage he moved to Lewis County in what is now denominated West Virginia. While he was residing here he had the misfortune in the year 1839 to bury his wife, having been married about twenty one years. He only remained a widower for the space of about six months when he was again married to Emily E. Curtis daughter of Alexander Curtis who now survives him. In 1854 he and his family emigrated to Illinois and settled in Hancock County within a few miles of Carthage where he has continued to reside. At the age of 16 he embraced religion and joined the M. E. Church. He was a class leader for a number of years in the church and commanded the respect of all who knew him for his devotedness and Christian work. He has been sorely afflicted for fifteen years from a hurt from which he never fully recovered but from which at times he experienced the most intense anquish. His dying requests were in some degree peculiar. There was one certain spot in which he desired to be buried. He wished his pallbearers in carrying him out of his room to let the head of the coffin be in advance. He als selected the words, God is Love, from which he wished his funeral preached. After being confined entirely to his bed for eight weeks and undergoing the greatest sufferings he peacefully and unreluctantly passed from time to eternity leaving behind him a blessed assurance of his immortality beyond the grave. A large circle of friends and relatives are left to mourn his loss.

History of Jefferson County, Missouri,  Western Historical Company, Chicago: 1879. Page 354.

“During the summer of 1836 a very considerable number of claim-hunters visited the country west of Skunk River and in the Cedar Creek region.  Many of them selected claims, which they came to occupy the following season.  Some made immediate improvements and came with their families to occupy them in the summer and fall of 1836.  So far as can be remembered by John Huff and Mrs. Lambirth (Sarah Ann Tilford, widow of  Thomas Lambirth), the following list embraces the entire population when the summer of that year faded into autumn and autumn whitened into winter:

James Tilford and his son Joseph; Thomas Lambirth and wife; Samuel Scott Walker, his wife and two children; John Huff and wife; Amos Lemon, his wife and five children; Isaac Blakeley; James Lemmon, his wife and six children; David A. Woodward (a boy who came with John Huff, now a resident of Neosho County, KS),  Col. W. G. Coop, his wife and three children: Noah Wright, his wife and one child;  Harmon J. Sikes and three brothers, all unmarried; George Stout, his wife and three children; Samuel T. Harris, his wife and eight children; David Coop, his wife and two children;  ____ Ballard; Fred Lyong and Lambeth Morgan, both unmarried; Isaac Bush and a man named Mount, the two last named being the last arrivals in the fall of 1836…

..Section 24 Cedar Township, Jefferson County: “house occupied by a settler Benjamin Mount.”

Generation No. 3

      12.  Isaac D.4 Brake (Mary3 Davis, Sophia2 Jackson, John Jackson1 Sr.) was born 1807 in Virginia.  He married Jane.  She was born about 1812 in Pennsylvania.

Mary died in childbirth and her son, Isaac probably “D”. was bound out to her father in 1808.  In his will Joseph left his grandson one shilling.  The typed copy of the will says “B” but it is likely that he was named Isaas Davis Brake. Legend is he migrated to Ohio and married a girl named Pam who was Irish.  I find an Isaac D. Brake purchasing land in Ohio in November 1831, 80 acres in Wooster, Ohio.  In 1850 he [Isaac Break] was living in North Bloomfield, Morrow County Ohio on August 7.  He was age 43, born in Virginia, his wife Jane, not Pam, was age 38, born in Pennsylvania, all children were born in Ohio. [The name of Jane in the census could have been mistaken for Pam as the cursive writing is not clear]. This Isaac would be the correct age for Isaac the son of Abraham and Mary (Davis) Brake. Legend is he traveled around the country side selling medicines. Nothing on him after 1850. Requests from Morrow County provided no additional information on this family.  The family may have left the area before the marriage of the children.

Obit for Mary Chipman Davis, Clayton Enterprise, Thursday, June 25, 1903, Clayton, Illinois:

“Mary Chipman was born in Gilford (sic, should be Guilford) Co., North Carolina, January 12, 1826 and died at the home of her son, J. C. Davis, east of Clayton, June 18, 1903, age 77 years 5 months and six days.  She came to Illinois with her parents in her childhood from the State of Virginia (sic, should be North Carolina).  Upon arriving at womanhood, March 12, 1846, she married Mr. Jackson G. Davis, who came from sturdy North Carolina (sic, should be Virginia) stock.  They settled on the old farm, just over the line in Brown County, which continued to be their home until they moved to Clayton a few years ago.  Mr. Davis passed away soon after moving to town.

She professed religion in early life, “in her teens”, and united with the Baptist church with which she and her husband were intimately associated all of their lives and lived a consistent member until death called her to that “Rest that remaineth for the people of God”.

To Mr. and Mrs. Davis five sons were born, C.J., W.O., E.S., J.C. and A.O. Davis all living as far as we know.  During the long weeks of her last illness so full of pain and suffering she manifested great patience and resignation to God’s will and when the end came she was as calm as the Sea of Galilee when Jesus said, “Peace be still”.  She was anxious to go and dwell with her God and to hear Him say to her, “Come home; life labors well done, Rest”.

Many of her old neighbors and friends gathered at the beautiful home of her son to attend her funeral and to look once more at the face of one they knew and loved.  With tender and loving hands we laid the body away in hope of the resurrection of the dead, Faith refuses to accept the grave as the end of such a life.  It goes on, beyond the end into vast eternity.  May the sorrowing sons and relatives find comfort in their faith in God.  We extend to them our sincere sympathy and commend them to the dear Heavenly Father who has numbered the hairs of our heads and tenderly notices the little sparrows fall, who will cause all things to work together for good to them that love Him and while we sorrow at the departing from us of another and friend, nevertheless we (?) in the will of God who is able to keep her deathless spirit safe in his own loving omnipotent arms against that day when we shall no longer see through a glass darkly, but we shall see face to face and know as we are known.

Obit for Nancy Chipman Davis, Clayton Enterprise, Thursday, 12 August 1886

“DIED- In Clayton, Adams county, Ill. at the residence of her youngest daughter, Mrs. Robt. Smith, Mrs. Nancy C. Davis, aged 66 yrs., 6 mo. and 28 days. Mrs. Davis was the daughter of Jesse and Harriet Chipman and was born in Guilford county, North Carolina, January 12, 1820. She moved with her parents to Schuyler county, Ill., in 1835, uniting with the Baptist church in Rushville. She was married to Washington Davis, March 16th, 1843. They moved to Clayton the same year, where she has since resided up to the time of her death, uniting at that time with the old Centerville, now Clayton Baptist church. The fruit of this marriage has been 3 sons and 2 daughters, all of whom are living and with us today. Sister Davis was left a widow, Oct. 9th, 1857- 29 years ago- yet she who trusted in the widow’s God has not been disappointed in his merciful love and watchful care. All the children have come to the measure of manhood and womanhood, and all have taken the parents place in the family household and most of them stand registered with father and mother in the church of God. Her end was peace. She died as she had lived, leaning on the strong arm of her Saviour and the Christian maiden of 15, passed away the sainted grandmother of more than 66 years. She was laid away in the Howes graveyard by the side of her husband, from the Baptist church. The sermon was preached by Rev. G. D. Kent, who was assisted by the resident pastors of the place, while the large congregation attested the deep felt bereavement of the community.  GDK” (Adams County, Illinois Genweb).
