Notes for Andrew Jackson Davis:
US Census, 1850, Henderson Co., TX, age 4 which makes his year of birth 1846. US Census, 1860, Refugio Co., TX, age 14 which makes his year of birth 1846.

Auth for DOB "Andrew J. Davis was Born April 3rd A.D. 1846" recorded in the Bible of his parents, Andrew Pickens and Nancy (Killingsworth) Davis. This Bible published in NY by the American Bible Society in 1853 is this date owned by the narrator, Bruce G Davis, grandson of Andrew Jackson Davis.

Andrew Jackson Davis is listed in the U.S. Census of 1850 for Henderson County, Texas in the household of his parents (p. 1050, 10 Sep 1850), Andrew P. Davis and Nancy Davis, as Andrew J. Davis, age 4 (born 1846 according to census), white male, born in Mississippi.

His birth year is given in other U.S. Census, i.e., 1860 and 1870; Refugio County, TX; 1880, 1890, 1900 etc., for Aransas Co., TX.

Another source for the birth date of Andrew Jackson Davis is the date recorded on his tombstone, 3 April 1846, MS, in Rockport Cemetery, Rockport, Aransas Co., Texas.
D: 10 December 1921 in Rockport, Aransas County, Texas. One authority for the death date of Andrew Jackson Davis is the date recorded on his tombstone.

10 31 October 2013

B: Rockport Cemetery, Rockport, Aransas County, Texas beside his second wife, Sarah "Sallie" Jane (Newman) Davis, and their son, Jefferson Davis. All graves are marked.
M: 1st, 24 November 1867 in Refugio County, Texas (Refugio County, Texas Marriage Records, Vol. C, pp. 195-196), Julia A(nn?) Casterline (1850 TX - 1874 TX), daughter of Jonas A. Casterline and Rebecca (Bolton) Casterline.

M: 2d, 7 March 1878 in Bee County, Texas (Volume D, page 368, Deed Records of Bee County, Texas), Sarah Jane Newman (1852 LA - 1942 TX), daughter of George Alfred Clayton Newman and Harriet Catherine (Arnold) Newman.

Andrew Jackson Davis was about three years old when his parents moved from Lauderdale County, Mississippi, where he was born, to Henderson County, Texas in the latter part of 1848 and prior to
1849. As previously stated, Andrew Jackson Davis appears in the U.S. Census of 1850 for Henderson Co., TX in the household of his parents as Andrew J. Davis, age 4 (born in 1846 according to the census), white male, born in Mississippi.

By the fall-winter of 1858 the Davis family had moved from Henderson Co., TX to the vicinity of Anahuac, Chambers Co., TX where his sister, Martha Eliza, was born 26 Nov 1858. The family
did not remain here too long as we next find them listed in the U.S. Census of 1860 for Refugio Co., TX as residents of that county. This Census enumerated 12 July 1860, page 50, lists Andrew Jackson Davis in the household of his parents, A. Davis, and Nancy Davis, as Andrew Davis, age 14 (born 1846 according to the census), white male, born in Mississippi.

At age 14 in 1860, Andrew Jackson Davis should have been attending school but what education he was exposed to is unknown, however, it was probably not much of a formal nature.

While the Davis family were residing in Refugio County, TX Lincoln was elected president and South Carolina's legislature by a unanimous vote had seceded from the Union, 20 Dec 1860. Other southern states soon followed their example with Texas voting for secession 23 Feb 1861. With the firing of shore batteries under the the command of Gen. G. T. Beauregard (1819-1893) on Fort Sumter under the command of Major Anderson (Union commander), at 4:30 a.m. 12 Apr 1861 the Civil War began.

The Davis family did not own slaves although the maternal grandfather of Andrew Jackson Davis, Jesse V. Killingsworth was a minor slave holder in Mississippi. As would be expected, the family in sentiment and deed supported the southern cause.

When Thomas A. Davis, the sixteen year old brother of Andrew, volunteered as a soldier in the Confederacy it was only to be expected that Andrew would follow his example. Records show that Thomas A. Davis is listed as a Corporal and his younger brother, Andrew Jackson Davis as Private A. J. Davis on the roster of Company F (formerly Company C) commanded by Capt. P. H. Breeden,
8th Infantry Battalion, Hobby's Texas Regiment (Auth: Hobart Huson, Refugio - A Comprehensive History of Refugio County from Aboriginal Times to 1953, Houston, Texas, The Guardsman Publishing Company for the Rooke Foundation, Inc. (Woodsboro, Texas. 1953, Vol. II (1861 to 1953?), 1953, p. 450). (Note: Company F, 8 Regiment Texas Infantry was successively designated as Captain Breedem's Company and Company C, Hobby's Battalion Texas Infantry; Company C and Company F, 8th Regiment Texas Infantry. The 8th (also called Hobby's) Battalion Texas Infantry was first first organized May 14, 1862, as the 8th (Hobby's) Battalion Texas Infantry with three companies, A to C. Company D was organized June 20, 1862. Captains R. Benavides', S. Benavides', Ware's and Navarro's Company of Cavalry were assigned to this command by S.O. No. 81, Hd. Qrs. Dist. of Texas, N.Mex. and Ariz., dated February 21, 1863. This order was not obeyed by some of the companies and the regiment, as finally constituted, consisted of the 8th (Hobby's) Battalion Texas Infantry, four companies; the 4th (Shea's) Battalion Texas Artillery, two companies; Captain Navarro's Company of Cavalry; Captain Neal's Company of Artillery; Captain Ireland's Company of Infantry and Captain Penaloza's Company of Infantry. The regiment was ordered to be discharged by S.S. No. 142, Hd. Qrs. Dist. of Texas, N.
Mex. and Ariz., dated May 22, 1865.

At the time of his enlistment, 15 June 1863, in Corpus Christi, Texas, Andrew Jackson Davis was 17 years old. In the Davis Family Bible the narrator discovered a loose slip of paper with the following written on it:

"This certifies that Thomas A. Davis has joined the Camp Church by a profession of his faith in Christ and baptism. Galveston March 14th 1864.

/s/ J. H. Cox?, Chaplain

8th Regt Texas Vol. Infty."
After his enlistment, it does not appear that Andrew got much further from home than Victoria, TX where he

was hospitalized 6 Dec 1863. Records indicate that he was given leave to go home, (he appears on roster as sick in Refugio Co. since 1 Jul 1863) probably to recuperate, but never returned to the service. Regimental Returns, March 1864, still carry him in hospital in Victoria. His second wife, the narrator's grandmother, related to the narrator that Andrew, due to an injury (knee), suffered from what was called "white swelling". He suffered from

11 31 October 2013

this disability the remainder of his life. He would not have made a good infantryman with his injury.
The war carried on until Gen. Lee surrendered, 9 Apr 1865, to Gen. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, VA.

Under the leadership of President Johnson every Confederate state beside Texas had been readmitted to the Union by Dec. 1865 and by 6 Apr 1866 Texas was readmitted, however, under the control of a radical congress impeachment of President Johnson was initiated by this radical group and eventually the Southern States were divided into 5 military districts subject to martial law and new demands made upon each state before they were restored to the union. By 1870 Texas had met the conditions. It goes without saying, that the Davis family, like all southern families must have been affected by this so called period of American history known as the "Reconstruction". Political reverberations are still a part of the southern political scene today as a result of the treatment of defeated southerners during this vengeful and stressful period in our nation's history.

In 1867 Andrew Jackson Davis and his older brother, Thomas A. Davis, both married. Thomas was the first to marry. On 21 March 1867 he married Mary Ann Williams (1841 MS - 1924 TX) in Refugio County (Refugio County, TX Marriage Book A, p. 61) daughter of Henderson Williams (1812 N.C. - 1899 TX) and of Emily (Wofford) Williams (1819 - ) (For a history of the Williams and Wofford families see: Clara Vaughan Hatcher O'Brien, Deep Roots and Strong Branches, 1972, i.e., pages 143-145, 290-293 and others).

There were other connections between the Davis and Williams families. Julia Hazelton Newman (1856 TX - 1899 TX), sister of Sarah Jane Newman (1852 LA - 1942 TX), second wife of Andrew Jackson Davis, married Rev. John Wesley Williams (1857 TX - ), sister of Mary Ann Williams (Mrs. Thomas A. Davis). Clara Vaughan O'Brien, author of Deep Roots and Strong Branches, the genealogy of the Williams and Newman families, was the granddaughter of John and Julia (Newman) Williams.

The narrator (Bruce Gordon Davis) has in his possession the original handwritten license authorizing the marriage of Thomas A. Davis to Miss Mary A(nn) L.? Williams. This document was given to the narrator by the County Clerk of Refugio Co., TX where the marriage is on file. This marriage license was issued by R. P. Clarkson, Clerk County Court Refugio County, dated 19 March 1867. The document shows that they were married 22 March 1867 by A.? W. May, B(aptist) M(inister). The reverse side of the original notes that this return was filed 18 March 1867 by R. P. Clarkson, Clerk, County Court, Refugio County.

About eight months later, 24 November 1867, Andrew Jackson Davis married his first wife, Julia A(nn?) Casterline.

The County Clerk of Refugio County, Texas gave the narrator the original Marriage License (license was retained in folder as it had been recorded in Refugio Co., TX Marriage Book A, p. 61). This license was issued 21 Nov 1867, marriage soleminized 24 Nov 1867, filed for record 10 Dec 1867 and again 12 Apr 1900 (Recorded in Refugio County Texas Marriage Book Vol. C, pp. 195-196). A reproduction of the original license follows:

Attention should be called to an error in one source reporting the marriage of Andrew Jackson Davis and Julia A. Casterline. In a compilation of the marriages of Refugio Co., TX, titled Refugio County Texas Marriage Books A-B-C, 1839-1881, St Louis, Missouri, 1980, page 15, the compiler, Helen Swenson (printer, Frances Ingmire), gives the groom in the marriage above incorrectly as H.J.D(avis) and should have been A. J. D(avis).

This marriage was recorded in the Family Bible of Andrew Pickens and Nancy (Killingsworth) Davis with the following entry: "A. J. Davis and Julia A. Davis was married November the 24, 1867."

The above Bible was The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Translated Out of The Original Greek; And With the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised., New York: American Bible Society, Instituted in the year MDCCCXVI. (1853). Bible was given to Fannie Catherine Davis (Mrs. Justus Wilson Court) by her maternal aunt, Martha Eliza Davis (last of children of Andrew Pickens and Nancy (Killingsworth) Davis to own the Bible). The narrator, Bruce Gordon Davis, owns (Feb 1996) this Bible which was given to him prior to her death his paternal aunt, Fannie Catherine Davis (Mrs. Justus Wilson Court). [DavisBruce2.FTW]

"I remember the day he (Arthur Eugene Davis, his younger brother) was born and I was invited by my parents to meet my new brother. Also, I remember his death and funeral. His death affected my mother greatly and I do not think she ever completely recovered from his passing.

Sometime my parents received the letter dated 21 March 1930 from my father's niece, Irene (Court) Thomas (Mrs. Fred Thomas Sr.) my mother and myself and two sisters went for a visit at the Thomas home, a rance near Blanconia, TX."

Notes for Sherman Jackson Burton:
US Census, 1940 for Morgan's Point region of Harris Co., TX is difficult to read due to hand writing of census taker. His name appears in the automated index as Shannon J. Burton although it is clear to this reader that the actual name entered is Sherman J. Burton. He was age 36; estimate birth year abt 1904; male, white, born in TX, married, head of household; home in 1940, Harris Co., TX; did not live on a farm; inferred residence in 1935 was Rural, Harris Co., TX; residence in 1935 was Rural, Harris Co., TX; did not live on a farm in 1935; sheet number was 2B; number of household in order of visitation was 31; occupation was "seam farmer" which I translate as "steam fireman"; industry is Tow Boat (so steam fireman makes sense for a steam powered vessel); home is rented; monthly rental is $20.00; Attended school or college is answered no yet next question is highest grade completed and shows High School, 2nd year (to me this means that while he didn't attend school in the prior year, he had actually completed 2 years of HS; hours worked in week prior to census was 48; class of worker is listed as "Wage or salary worker in private work"; he worked 52 weeks during 1939.
