Norma Karter nckarter@flash.net writes:

 Jesse Gross Davis  Sr. was born in Nelson Co., KY Oct 31, 1792.
Jesse died March 14, 1860 Pike County IN, at 67 years of age.
His body was interred in Spurgeon, Pike Co., IN, Davis Cemetery.

 He married Nancy Mason in Elizabethtown, Hardin Co., KY, Dec 21, 1815.
Nancy was born in Kentucky Jan 6, 1795.  Nancy was the daughter of John Mason and Hannah Hutcheson.
Nancy died Jan 9, 1896 Pike County IN, at 101 years of age.
Her body was interred in Spurgeon, Pike Co., IN, Davis Cemetery.
Consent for the marriage of Nancy and Jesse was granted by her mother on December 19, 1815.
Her mother's name was listed as Hannah Mayson.

 Just after her daughter Tacy died, Nancy left land in a deed conveyance in October 1874,
to her grandchildren by Jesse Clifford.

 Obit: Pike County Democrat, Friday, Jan 17, 1896 Nancy Davis,
the oldest person in this section of the country,
died at the residence of James Black last Sunday.
She was one hundred and one years old and was drawing
a pension as surviving widow of the war of 1812.
She was a sister to William and David Mason, Sr.,
who died a short time ago.
Jesse fought in the War of 1812 in John Farmer's Kentucky Militia.
On September 28, 1850 the government passed an act awarding 80 acres
of land as bounty for any survivors of the War of 1812.
On March 3, 1855 they passed another act allowing those same veterans
an additional 80 acres of land.
Jesse was awarded 80 acres of land on bounty land warrant 6274
and another 80 acres of land on bounty land warrant 46179.
On March 9, 1878 the government passed an act allowing widow's
of veterans of the War of 1812 to file for a pension.

 In his pension file, on April 24, 1855,
Jesse stated that he was 63 years old and a resident of Pike Co IN.
That he had served for the term of six months (Nov 27, 1814 to May 10, 1815)
in the war of 1812 against Great Britain, that he had received
bounty land of 80 acres and had legally disposed of it.
He was applying for his second 80 acres.

 In 1878, Nancy filed for a widow's pension.
She states that her husband at the time of his
enlistment at age 23 was a farmer about six feet,
black hair, hazel eyes and had dark complexion.
She states that he was born in Nelson County KY
and that they were married in Elizabethtown,
Hardin Co., KY by Martin Utterback a Baptist minister.
She states that her maiden name was Mason.
From the date of their marriage to October 1819
they resided in Bardstown, KY (Nelson Co) when
they moved to Gibson Co., IN where they remained
about 20 years and then moved to Pike Co., IN
where they lived until the death of her husband
and where she still resided.

 In the Tax lists for Hardin Co, KY Jesse is not listed in 1814.
He is listed in 1815 as owning one horse/mule worth $30.
He is not listed in 1816 or any year after.
According to Nancy's pension affadavit,
they were in Nelson Co, KY right after their marriage.

 There is a Jesse Davis that purchased land Aug 28,
1818 in Gibson County IN.
He also purchased land on Sept 11, 1821,
January 11,1834 and March 30, 1836 in Gibson Co IN.
Buying land in the same parcel was
Robert Clark Davis (Nov 14, 1818),
Joel Davis (Sept 30, 1835) and
William Ross Davis (Dec 12, 1834).
It's possible that Jesse was related to these Davis's.
There is a Robert Davis listed in the 1815 Hardin Co KY tax list.

 Jesse is listed in the 1820 and 1830 Gibson County IN census.
There is a Robert C. Davis, William R Davis and David Davis listed also.

 In the parcel next to one above, John Davis purchased land May 13, 1833 and July 31, 1836.

 While living in Gibson County Jesse purchased land in Pike Co. IN on March 29, 1837.
He is listed in the 1840 census in Pike Co.

 Jesse also purchased land in Pike County on Nov 25, 1848, July 14, 1849,
Sept 21, 1850, and June 5, 1851 (used his Military Land Warrant).
In the same section of land his sons John J. and David J. also purchased land.

 Based on the number of children listed in the 1840 census we have added those missing to our list.

 In the 1850 census Jesse and family are in Pike Co IN in Monroe township.
Their grandchildren Lydia and Josiah Davis (children of David Jackson Davis and wife Lydia ?)
are living with them.
We know these are not Jesse's children because he states that his daughter
Tasey Lewis Davis born in 1842 is his youngest daughter.
After Jesse's son David's wife Lydia died he had remarried so we assume
that his mother took his two youngest children to raise.
In 1860 Nancy is living alone with her children still in Monroe township after Jesse's death.
In 1870, Nancy is living with her daughter Tacy Clifford and her family still in Monroe township.

 Jesse left a will dated Dec 21, 1855 in Pike County, IN.
He only bequeathed land and/or goods to  his wife, his 4 youngest children and one granddaughter.
He named his son David Jackson Davis as executor.
His older children may not have needed support or he may have already settled land or money
on them at an earlier date.   In 1860 the disposition of items was made based on Jesse's will.
He left beds to two of his daughters, his wife and his granddaughter.
The value of his estate was approximately $3500.00.

 In Sept 1881, an heirship deed conveying land to Jesse Clifford was filed in Pike County, IN .
All of Jesse's children are listed: David J., John J., Jesse G., Benoni S., Candis, Hannah Ritter, Nancy L., Sarah and Mary Ann.

      Jesse Gross Davis Sr. and Nancy Mason had the following children:

     2   i.     Wilson Davis.
     3   ii.    David Jackson Davis was born 1817.
     4   iii.   John James Davis was born Nov 22, 1818 and died Sept 5, 1898.
     5   iv.    Jesse Gross Davis Jr. was born 1823 and died bef 1881.
     6   v.     Daughter Davis was born 1825-1830.
