This is a map, made in 1894, of that part of Morgan County, Illinois that shows the Charles W Augustin Land a part of which Charles Edward Davis, father of Alvah N. Davis, had inherited. He was the uncle of Charles Edward Davis on his mother's side of the family. The land was in Illinois located at Sect 36, Spring Run in public road, Morgan County Illinois. Christina Liming his mother passed away when Charles was about 8 or 9 years old. Charles W Augustin is Christina Liming's uncle, her mother's brother. I think the will was dated 19 Oct 1889. View a copy of the WILL. Charles Edward Davis moved his family to the Elbert, Texas area about 1900 or 1901. Charles Edward Davis sold the land he had inherited and used the money to make a down payment on a section of Land near Lockney, Texas. The 1920 Texas census placed them in Baylor County, Texas and he started building the house in about 1926 to 1927. Mom was about a year old when they moved to their new home and she was born near Abilene, Texas. He moved his family to the farm near Sterley about 1927. He and his three sons farmed the land near Sterley and made payments on it together.
