About Jesse S Davis

"The first actual settler within the present bounds of the district was Jesse Davis, who reared his cabin on Buckeye run, where George Ford now lives, in the year 1811. He was followed to his new home by W.F. Davis, Adam Ash, R.P. Nichols, Thomas Ford, H. Davis, W.B. Davis, H.B. Davis, and several others, all of whom were hardy pioneers, and by their industry and economy established the many comfortable homes now enjoyed by their descendants. The first white child born here was P.S. Davis, a daughter of Jesse Davis and Hannah is wife, in the year 1812. The first marriage was that of William B. Davis and Martha Hughes, in 1825. The second was that of D.D. Davis and Anna Davis; the marriage rite was performed by the Rev. John Davis."
