Descendants of Richard (speculative) DAVIS

Davenport Family Tree

updated 1-1-2008

Photos

Generation No. 1

1. Richard (speculative)1 DAVIS was born Bet. 1630 - 1640. He married Anne (speculative) DAVENPORT. She was born Bet. 1630 - 1640.

Notes for Richard (speculative) DAVIS:

It is believed that Richard Davis is Davis' father and that Davis' was born out of wedlock. According to researchers, there was a Hannah Davenport, immigrating about 1650 and Anne Davenport, immigrating about 1658 and one of these women could be Davis' mother. It has been found that Anne was living very near Richard Davis (land records) and there is no mention as to further research on Hannah. From researching land records and other records available, it may be that Anne Davenport would be Davis' mother.

 

Child of Richard DAVIS and Anne DAVENPORT is:

+ 2 i. Davis2 DAVENPORT, born Bet. 1650 - 1660 in King William Co., VA; died Bef. 1735 in King William Co., VA.

 

Generation No. 2

2. Davis2 DAVENPORT (Richard (speculative)1 DAVIS) was born Bet. 1650 - 1660 in King William Co., VA, and died Bef. 1735 in King William Co., VA. He married Wife (?) DAVENPORT. She was born Abt. 1660.

Notes for Davis DAVENPORT:

Davis was first found with his son, Martin, in King William County Quit Rent Rolls of 1704, but a Davenport Plantation and Landing existed on the Mattaponi River in Pamunkey Neck in 1696. I wonder why it is that no one has been able to learn Davis' wife's name but they can determine his children's names?

Depending on the Davenport researcher, his birth year varies. He may have been born out of wedlock, according to one researcher, however this is speculation. It may be that his father was Richard Davis and mother was Anne Davenport. Who was Anne's parents?

Some of this family history comes from the research courtesy of The Pamunkey Davenport's, courtesy of John Scott Davenport. Some of my family history comes from other Davenport researchers, with trees found at rootsweb.com, ancestry.com and other family tree sites online. Some research is my own using records such as census, birth, death, marriage, etc. Who would I tend to believe as a credible researcher with credible information? John Scott Davenport

It is believed some records may have been destroyed by fire or other means in New Kent, King & Queen, King William, Caroline, and Hanover counties. from what records that could be found, the earliest was a female Davenport in Pamunkey Neck, VA in 1650. In 1704, Davis and son Martin owned land in King William Co., VA. They were slave owners. Davis' mother could have been either immigrants Hannah Davenport (transportee 1650) or Anne Davenport (transportee 1658). It is learned that Anne appears to have lived very near Richard Davis, who is believed to be Davis Davenport's father. There is no mention as to what happened to Hannah Davenport. There is no mention of the ages of Anne and Hannah. Births are estimated.

It is believed that Davis' father is Martin b. 1625 King William Co., VA and that Martin's father is Lancelot b. 1599 England. The major researchers who seem to know what is going on and who have done extensive research do not have ancestors named for Davis.

There are many researcher's of this family and there are variations of birth/death years/locations. This can be quite confusing. I cannot verify most of the information and try to make sense of information I locate and I try to determine who may be more accurate. I have found birth years of some people being after the births of their own children!! I don't claim to be perfect and I am sure some of my information is not accurate.

Alternate death location: James City, VA and death date of 5-24-1732. Also Hanover Co., VA

By 1749, the tract was in Chesterfield County, and by 1777 it was in Powhatan County. He may have been childless inasmuch as Absalom of Richard was the only Davenport enumerated in Powhatan County in 1783, or those yet unidentified Davenports in Goochland County before the Revolution may have been his descendants

Notes for Martin DAVENPORT, Jr.:

Martin (s/o Martin) appears to have married late. He was living with his mother Dorothy, along with brother David and family, on the old homeplace in Hanover until mid 1760s (court evidence). When David illegally mortgaged the property in 1767, which apparently resulted in joint devisee brother James Davenport's repossession of Martin's plantation, Dorothy, having participated in David's action by releasing her dower interest and life estate, moved to Cumberland Co to join David. Martin having married, had his own household, and was apparently required to move elsewhere in Hanover. In 1782, his household was enumerated as consisting of 7 whites, no black. Unless he obtained land in Haover after 1765, he was landless as well as slaveless, either a tenant farmer or following craft or trade. If he was the Martin Davenport who made the casket for Thomas Graves, husband of Ann Davenport, in 1769, then he was a carpenter

Notes for Julius Terry DAVENPORT:

Apparently to satisfy the debts of Philemon, James Jr., and Joel--as well as his own, Julius sold his 337 acre plantation in Cumberland in September 1767. (He was the only one of Thomas, Sr.'s sons who lived over the ridge to the west on the waters of Willis River of the James River. Thomas and all of his other sons lived in a cluster on the waters of the Appomattox River.) Julius was landless thereafter until his father gave him title to the Old Homeplace and 100 acres in 1772, subject to Thomas, Sr.'s life estate. Apparently still hard pressed financially, Julius sold his rights to the homeplace in June 1772, three years before his father died in 1775.

While Julius is present in Cumberland County records until 1780, he appears to have moved to Buckingham County in 1776. (Buckingham County, where all early records have been lost to a series of courthouse fires, is in the next county west of Cumberland.) He was tax listed in Buckingham County in 1782 in a household that contained one White Titheable, no Blacks. No further traces of Philemon, James Jr., and Joel, believed sons of Julius, have been found. Their flight from debt most likely would have been towards the Mountain Frontier of Southwest Virginia. They may have preceded their brother Thomas to the Holston River country of later Washington County, and have been ancestors of those East Tennessee Davenports whose origins are still unidentified.

33. Henry4 DAVENPORT, Sr. (Thomas3, Davis2, Richard (speculative)1 DAVIS) was born Abt. 1715 in King William Co., VA, and died Dec 09, 1791 in Buckingham Co., VA. He married (1) Wife (?) DAVENPORT Abt. 1765. She was born Abt. 1720. He married (2) Nancy Ann PEMBERTON Dec 12, 1770 in King William Co., VA.

Notes for Henry DAVENPORT, Sr.:

Henry was much older than most of his Twentieth Century descendants have credited. Family legend claims that he was born in the mid-1730s, and that Henry's (second) family (where they ignore a first family) was born and reared in Buckingham County. Public records, however, heavily document that Henry and his first and last family lived in Cumberland County, where all of his children were born--except possibly the youngest . Only a few years before his death, in May 1788 he and Ann sold the Cumberland plantation where they "now lived"--and then apparently moved to another plantation that Henry owned in adjacent Buckingham County on the Appomattox River.

In February 1789, Henry was back in Cumberland to convey slaves to his eldest son (second family) Wilson. When Henry died, Wilson, not yet 21-years-old but by then--or soon to be--an attorney, in February 1792 was appointed guardian to his six younger sisters by Cumberland County Court--which was passing strange if the family was resident in Buckingham County. There is no question that Ann lived fifty years and more of widowhood in Buckingham, and likely reared Henry's second family there.

Notes for Martin DAVENPORT:

A private in Captain Charles Fleming 's Company, 7th Virginia Regiment, Continental Line, possibly while at home on furlough, he died.

A Martin Davenport was associated with Henry in witnessing a Cumberland deed--William Davenport to Henry Davenport on 2 March 1777 with Thomas Davenport, minor (son of Julius?), Martin Davenport, Thomas Davenport ,Jr., and Julius Davenport as witnesses--and in signing a Cumberland petition that was filed with the Virginia General Assembly on 10 May 1777. (From the beginning of the circulation of a petition for signatures until the completed document was filed with the General Assembly generally took two-to-three months-at the least.) Claiborne Davenport, son of Thomas of Julius, another private in Captain Charles Fleming's Company, 7th Virginia, also signed the petition. (Fleming was from Cumberland County.) Martin Slaughter Davenport was 12-13-years-old in 1777, and would have signed the petition with his father David Davenport who did not sign the copy of the petition that Henry and Martin did sequentially, Henry being first to sign. No further record of this Martin has been found.

Notes for Alex MORROW:

Alexander Morrow filed for divorce in April 1833 charging Matilda Morrow with adultery. His deposition states that `they lived together about 3 years in Wayne County and then moved to Indiana for 4 years, then back to Wayne County on the 20th August 1832; had 3 children, 2 are living and 1 dead; Matilda became involved with Isaac Casady in Indiana and that's why they moved back to Wayne County to break up this relationship. In October 1832, Alex and James Frost took a drove of hogs to Georgia for $8.00 per month. He made arrangements for his wife Matilda and their children to stay with her brother, Isaac Davenport while he was away. Alex was gone for two months and a few days and on his return, he found that Isaac Casaday had come to take Matilda and the children back to Indiana. Alex overtook them some 25 miles south of the Ohio River. Matilda would not return with Alex, but gave up her children and he brought them back to Wayne County. In 1845, Alex was in White County, Tennessee. The divorce was granted at the October Term of Court in 1834. They were married by Reverend George Dodson.

WILLIAM DAVENPORT - Eulogy

William Davenport was born in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, September 8, 1796 and died in Campbell County, Georgia, March 28, 1877.

The subject of this notice was married to Miss Andrew (sister of our late Bishop Andrew), who still survives him, and with whom he lived a devoted husband, a bright and shiny light in the interest of Church and Country. He processed in a rare degree practical common sense, and an inquiring mind, added to a fair education, that kept him well-informed as regards the great political, literary, and ecclesiastical movements of the age. He liked to read. In his house the Minister of Jesus could not only find a home, but books on theology and early Methodism. He was wise in counsel, and his great soul was felt in the correctness and cogency of his admonitions. To use his own language, he was "born with an unusually incredulous heart, and several years made an honest effort to be an infidel." And 1824 he attended the Salem Camp meeting, in Clark County, Georgia. At a night service, as he approached the stand, Dr. Lovie Pierce rose and with unusual emphasis read Charles Wesley's Hymn, beginning, "Stay, thou insulted spirit, stay," which produced a strange feeling in his heart. The text was Romans xi: 22 - "behold the goodness and severity of God." When the sermon closed the last fragment of infidelity was gone, and he, for the first time seeing himself a lost and ruined sinner, knelt for prayer and called on God to be merciful. At that meeting he was converted, and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, and the communion of which he lived a faithful and useful member to the end of his life. His views on the plan of salvation were more than ordinarily clear and correct. Although brightly converted, he was often in great doubt and darkness, which he ascribed to not coming to Jesus when he was a child. But with all, he had the true, spiritual idea of trust in God. He was an invalid for about six years and 10 months combined to his bed. During all these years of gloom he wrestled in prayer to God for unmistakable assurance of his acceptance with God. Fifteen months before his death, when bathed in penitential tears at the mercy seat for the witness of the Spirit, he said, "if I never again have it, and am finally lost, I will tell the enemy till doomed, I still trust God." Oh, how great and such faith! At last the cloud lifted, the shadows fled, and he exclaimed, "my God is reconciled," etc. He never had another doubt and praised God all the time - often saying "hallelujah" - "glory to God" - "happy, so happy" - "bright, bright." He had always been devoted to the Sunday school, the children, and young people, but now he extorted them, and all who came near him, to meet him in heaven, and not to be discouraged though Satan should pursue them to the gates of the city. He had reached "three great tribulations" faith's beatitude in sight of the Jordan, and there rejoiced and hope of an entrance being administered unto him that would be all the sweeter because of the afflictions. His departure was ecstatic. As the ship loosed its mooring he exclaimed distinctly, "heaven, sweet heaven;" "Farewell;" "Glory, Glory;" and was not, for God took him.

William Davenport was the father of Overton Davenport.

Notes for Elizabeth "Betsey" Sydnor ANDREW:

ELIZABETH SYDNOR DAVENPORT - Eulogy

Mrs. Elizabeth Sydnor Davenport was born in Elbert County, Georgia, October 28, 1800, and died in perfect peace on October 10, 1888, and Campbell County, Georgia, where she had lived since 1830.

She was the daughter of Reverend John and Mary 0. Andrew, and was the last of nine children, six daughters and three sons, one of whom is now our glorified Bishop James Andrew of precious memory. She was married to William Davenport, December 10, 1818, by Reverend Gabriel Christian, and survived, in much feebleness, her husband, about nine years. Her educational advantages were few but possessing a strong natural mind, being a lover of books and a constant reader of current literature, particularly that of her church, she developed into more than ordinary intelligence. Converted in childhood, she joined the Methodist Church and lived seventy-three years in its fellowship. Her Christian life was beautiful, devoted to her church and the calls of Christ, she kept all religious interest well in mind. She was hopeful and looked with great faith for the triumph of Christ's Kingdom, and when, because of infirmity of age, she cannot attend the public meetings, she wrestled in prayer for the Holy Ghost upon the preacher and congregation. She was affectionate as a mother, and faithful as a wife, but she was fond of the Bishop especially, and watched with amazing interest the points in his life that identified him with the history of the church. Left, as she felt, almost alone in the world, because of the death of her friends of her youth, she became quite taciturn toward the last, but when she did talk it was in beautiful expressions of same being with the Saints and rest. Here was a life of prayer, of usefulness and of trial, but also of triumph.

John M. Bowden

This was the mother of Overton Fletcher Davenport.

Overton Fletcher Davenport -Eulogy

1820-1909

Davenport - the subject of this sketch, Overton Fletcher Davenport, was born in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, February 10, 1820, moved to Texas in 1855, and settled on Station Creek, Coryell County, and lived there until 1892, when he moved to Eastland County, Texas, and died at his home and Ranger, Texas, June 22, 1909. His death was triumphant. He was converted when twelve years old and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and remained a faithful, devoted member of the same until the day of his death. He was a Stewart in the church the greater part of his life. His home was the preacher's home. He was a safe counselor to his pastor and presiding elder, always interested in the up building and enlargement of the church. He was liberal in his contributions to the Church and the support of his pastor. I knew him personally, not only when his sky was clear and the atmosphere was balmy, but when the storm raged and the fires of persecution burned. He was the same faithful, gentle Christian under all circumstances. He had a rich Christian experience. This fitted him for the grand life he lived and the triumph and death.

He entered the Confederate Army, in the 10th Texas Regiment Infantry. He was promoted to Captain of his Company, and served under Colonel R. Q. Mills, in General Grandburys' Brigade. Here he maintained his honor and integrity as a Private and Officer. He was twice married first to Miss Margret Susan Roberts, December 29, 1842. Two children were born to this union; one, William Grant Davenport, is now living. August 5th, 1852, he was married to Miss Eliza Pennington. Eleven children were born to this union, 10 of whom with their mother, live to mourn his death. In his life as a devoted human and father, a noble character as a citizen, soldier and Christian, he leaves to his family riches worth more than hoarded wealth. To the bereaved ones that may say, it will not be long, at most, when, if faithful, you can meet again where your union will be eternal. Here we have conflicts, sorrow, affliction and death. Uncle Overton has outstripped all of these and rest and that clime "undimmed my sorrow and unhurt in my time."

J. P. Mussett

J. P. Mussett was a Methodist preacher, and let a longtime friend of Coryell County days. Eliza's nephew, John Pennington, married his daughter, Mollie. They had no children but Mollie knew more about how to raise all the nieces and nephews better than their parents did. They lived in Oglesby and were too stingy to eat, except when they went somewhere, which was quite often.

WARTIME LETTER OF PVT. OVERTON F. DAVENPORT CO. H, 10TH TEXAS INFANTRY

(future Capt. of Co. K, 10th Texas Infantry) TO HIS FATHER AT NEW HOPE COMMUNITY NEAR DALLAS, GEORGIA

contributed by: Pvt. Davenport's Great-Grandson, JOE R. DAVENPORT San Antonio, Texas Virginia Point, Texas October 22, 1861

My Dear Father:

Your welcome letter of the 5 of Sept was rec'd a few days before I left home & I concluded to wait until I arrived here before I answered it & in order that you may get the hang of my movements. I will commence at the beginning. When I wrote you before, I belonged to a company of cavalry which had been organized previous to my joining it but on the last of Sept. we re-organized & I was elected 2nd Lieutenant & our company was reported to the Gov. as being ready for service but before our report reached the Governor there was a call for a company of Infantry from our county & Capt. Brice Hartgraves accepted the call for immediate service at Galveston as they were daily expecting an attack at that place & our company was to unite with portions of other companies in the county & we were to to meet on the 10 of Oct. & reorganize but when the time came there was only about 50 men met & they were willing to go into the service for 12 months & we elected our same capt. & I was elected 1st lieutenant & on the 11th we received out Flag from the Ladies, which was presented by Miss Lizzy Morris in a most beautiful address which was replied to by Wm Collard, after which we set out for Galveston to join Col. Allison Nelson Regiment. The neighborhood furnished 8 hacks & 2 horse wagons to bring us to Millican, the present terminus of the Houston & central R R, which place we reached on the 17th where we were met by Col. Nelson who informed us if we went into service at all it must be for the war which caused us to lose some 8 or 10 of our men which reduced our numbers so much we could not get in without uniting with some other company. This we finally did with a portion of a company from an adjoining county. The terms that they proposed was that we had the capt. & they had the 1st Lieutenant which our company rejected until I settled it by resigning my place contrary to the wishes of the company, but I got them reconciled to it when Col. Nelson promised them that he would give me an appointment in the Quartermaster department. What it will be I cannot tell as the Col. has been absent ever since we reached here, but I suppose he will have the regiment full in a few days as there is (sic) 6 companies here & 4 others will be in today or tommorrow. We are now in about 5 miles of Galveston on the mainland at the Railroad Bridge that crossed the Bay and connects Houston and Galveston.

I was in Galveston yesterday & witnessed the review of 4000 troops that are stationed at the City. There will soon be a large number of troops in this neighborhood so that I think we will be able to give the republicans a warm reception. John is with me & the company is in fine health & spirits & I think if we get a showing we will not disgrace our country. The inscription on our Banner is States Rights & the name of the company is Coryell Yankee Hunters & it is composed of the largest & finest looking men that I have seen & they are decidely the most civil crowd of the size that I have ever met. I have never been in a situation which enabled me so fully to appreciate the blessings conferred on me in giving me parents who inculcated (cq) the principles of Religion & morality. We are getting along finely, have plenty to eat & will soon have every thing we need. I want you to write as often as possible & direct to Nelson's Regiment, Hartgraves company. Give my love to all. As ever, your affectionate son, O.F. Davenport.

[Overton Daveport's Great Grandson, Joe Davenport of San Antonio, Texas]

Capt. Overton F. Davenport - Age 41 upon enlistment as Pvt. to Co. H, 10th Texas Infantry, at Houston, Harris County, Texas, on October 18, 1861, by 1Lt. Jesse Sparks He was a native of Campbell County, Georgia, a successful farmer and family man from Station Creek, Coryell County. He was detached on Recruiting Service on February 22, 1862, promoted to 2Jr. Lt. (3Lt.) and transferred to Co. K, 10th Texas Infantry, on March 29, 1862.

3Lt. Davenport was captured with the Command at Arkansas Post, Arkansas, on January 11, 1863, arriving at Camp Chase Prison, Columbus, Ohio, on January 30th. He was paroled from prison for exchange on April 10, 1863; arriving at Ft. Delaware on April 12th. He was exchanged at City Point, Virginia, on April 29th. According to his exchange certificate, Lt. Davenport stood 6'1" tall with blue eyes, brown hair, and a fair complexion.

Overton Davenport was assigned with his Command to the Army of Tennessee, where he assumed was promoted to 1Lt. on May 23, 1863, and placed in Command of the Company. As Captain of the Company, Davenport was wounded twice at the battle of Franklin, Tennessee, on November 30, 1863, but returned to his Command several days later; his jaw was shattered by a minie ball at the battle of Nashville, on December 15, 1864. His son, William G. Davenport, 6th Texas Cavalry, collected he and Pvt. John A. Davenport, Co. K, 10th Texas Infantry, wounded in a Franklin hospital, and retreated with the army. William loaded his father Overton on a westbound train at Tuscumbia, Alabama, on December 23, 1864. Capt. Davenport was admitted to the hospital at Okolona, Mississippi, on January 10, 1865, and later captured there then sent to Johnson's Island, near Sandusky, Ohio, where Overton was paroled on May 12, 1865, by order of General W. T. Sherman. He was the brother of Pvt. John A. Davenport, who was under his Command.

The following entry was written by Davenport Descendant, Doris A. Thompson, for the 1985 book, Coryell County Families; 1854-1985:

"'Tell Ma to save me some apples for I have a fine specimen of gold for her. Now I must close as the time has come to go to work.' This ended the last letter of Overton Davenport written to his father, William, in Georgia. Overton was in California mining gold, the date was Oct. 5, 1851. The letters written over a period of 18 months describe his adventures traveling to California, working and living in the west during the Gold Rush.

Overton Fletcher Davenport was born in Oglethorpe County, Georgia Feb. 10, 1820. He married Margaret Susan Roberts Dec. 29, 1842 and had two sons, William Grant and Harbert. Both Margaret and Harbert died before 1851. After the California trip, he settled down to farming in Georgia and married Eliza Agnes Pennington August 5, 1852. Two sons were born in Georgia - Thomas Henry 1853 and Ephraim Pennington 1854. In 1855 the family emigrated to Coryell County, settling at Station Creek near Eagle Springs. The following children were born in Coryell County: Caroline Agnes (1856/1956), John Jewett (1857), Parks Edward (1859), Lucy Elizabeth (1862), Sarah Maria (1864) [Ed: "Betty," conceived in April 1863, while Overton was on leave from Camp Chase Prison, after his capture at Arkansas Post], Albert Sidney (1867), James Samuel (1869), Baldwin Piercelee (1871), George Lovick (1873).

In 1892 the Davenports, Harrisons and other related families moved to Eastland. Overton lived in Eastland only a short time, then moved to Ranger where he lived until his death, June 22, 1909. Eliza died in San Antonio Dec. 20, 1924. Both are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery, Ranger, Texas.

Ephriam Pennington Davenport and brother Thomas H. married Laura Virginia Roberts, his half-brother, William Grant married Mary J. Shook, his uncle John A. and John's son Overton Vol married Sarah Ellen Backstock moved to Pearl in 1875. E. P. my grandfather, married Inez Estelle Whitney Nov. 6, 1861 in Stephenville and lived in Pearl. The two children born at this time were not born in Pearl. A daughter, Winnie (1882) was born in Stephenville and Overton Royal (1886) was born at Ealgle Springs. Ephriam and his cousin, Overton Vol, were operating a store in Pearl when it was called Wayback. He became postmaster March 28, 1890 and was instrumental in changing the town's name to Pearl. Vol's son, William Pearl, eight years old had been bitten by a rattlesnake, survived the bite and lived until Dec. 27, 1951.

In 1892 the cousins sold the store and move to Eastland. The two sons born in Eastland were Ernest Vernon (1892) and Travis Ephraim (1894). E. P. was a merchant and banker during this time. The family moved to San Antonio about 1915 where E. P. continued in banking. E.P. died July 25, 1935 and Inez died Oct. 4, 1950. Both are buried at Mission Burial Park, San Antonio.

Travis E. served in the A. E. F. in France during W.W.I and worked in San Antonio after for the Southern Pacific Railroad. He married Eleanor Anne Lucas Sept. 5, 1925. In 1931, Travis, Eleanor and children Travis Jr. (8/24/26) and Doris Anne (8/1/28) moved to Houston where they reside presently.

I know of no Davenport living in Coryell County except me, Doris Anne Davenport Thompson. I transferred here in 1981 from Huntsville, where I work for the Department of Corrections. My husband, Robert Bruce Thompson, Jr., died May 21, 1979. Our sons, Robert BruceThompson III, (11/24/60) and Travis William Thompson (11/26/62) presently live in San Antonio and Denton, respectively.

The family possesses a collection of letters written by Overton to his family in Georgia. The letters reflect a man of deep religious, moral and patriotic beliefs. This first Davenport of Coryell County set a noble example for all of us who follow - Doris A. Thompson"

The next entry is by Joe Davenport, the contributor of this page's letter:

"Overton Davenport after the war. O.F. served for a time as Station Creek postmaster before being elected to a full term as Coryell County, commissioner. (Four commissioners and county judges make up commissioner courts in Texas.) He was then elected to represent Coryell County in the 13th Texas Legislature (1873) which repealed most of the carpet bag laws imposed upon the residents.

He continued farming and he and wife Eliza Agnes Pennington continued having children. Overton and first wife had one surviving child: William Gran. Overton and Eliza had 11 surviving children, including one named Albert Sydney, who became a district Judge in Eastland County. Overton accompanied by his family as well as those of brothers John Andrew and Jouett Harbert (a major in Co. D, 30th Texas Cavalry during the war) moved to Eastland County. For a brief period Overton engaged in a mercantile business and aided brother Jouett in starting the county's first newspaper while beginning, again, a farming operation. He engaged in some land speculation in the town of Eastland and later in Ranger. Overton died June 22, 1909 at age 89. He and wife are buried in Pioneer Cemetery three blocks from downtown Ranger, Texas.

John Andrew [Ed: Pvt. John A. Davenport, Co. K, 10th Texas Infantry], born December 20, 1830, farmed in Coryell County and served a term as Station Creek postmaster. He also farmed in Eastland County near Ranger. He died October 18, 1916, and is buried in Pioneer Cemetery in Ranger under a tombstone that has his name spelled, improperly, as DEAVENPORT.

Overton had 6 brothers. All entered CSA service. Three were killed or died, the other four were wounded."

Notes for Eliza Agnes PENNINGTON:

Eliza Agnes (Pennington) Davenport - Eulogy

1832 - 1924

 

Mrs. Eliza Agnes Davenport, (nee Pennington), was born Coweta County, Georgia, January 1, 1832. She became a Christian and united with the Methodist church in childhood and gave her whole life in active service to Christ through the Methodist Church.

On the 5th of August 1852 she was united in marriage to Overton Fletcher Davenport of Palmetto, Georgia. To them were born eight sons and two daughters. (Thomas Henry, Ephraim Pennington, John Jouett, Parks Edward, Albert Sidney, James Samuel, Baldwin Pierce, George Lovie, Lucy Elizabeth and Sarah Maria).

In 1855 with her husband and stepson, William Grant Davenport, and her two baby boys, she came to Texas and settled on Station Creek in Coryell County. Here, for thirty seven years, this strong, vigorous woman gave herself in service to her family, to Church and State. She was one of that ever thinning line of pioneers who did valiant service in wrestling Texas from the savage and in turning a wilderness into a great Empire State. Sister Davenport shared all of the dangers and hardships of Pioneer life, while being a true wife and Mother, she found time to render a great service to her church. She became a charter member of the Station Creek Church about 1856 and gave 37 years of service to that church.

And 1892 the family moved to Eastland County and spent nearly 25 years in and near Ranger.

In 1917, her husband and son having died, she moved to Austin where she made her home for about two years. Then she moved to Weatherford were she lived until June, 1924 when she moved to San Antonio to spend her last days. Here, about the 24th of October she became ill. Her strong constitution enabled her to rally for a time, but about noon on December the 20th she closed her eyes upon things of time and sense and went home to be with Jesus and the great white robed throng who had gone before.

Measured by every standard, Sister Davenport was a notable woman. She had a body strong enough to endure the storms and stress of 92 years. She left behind a large family of children and grandchildren who are vigorous of mine and character. Her name is also embalmed in precious memory with many of the prominent families of this country saddened by her going, but hope to meet her in the land beyond the skies.

Notes for William Grant DAVENPORT:

Appears on the 1860 Station Creek Beat, Coryell Co., TX census

He was called "Billy Jack". He lived with William Davenport and Elizabeth Sydnor Andrew for a few years after his mother died. During this time, Overton Fletcher Davenport went to CA tot he gold rush. Overton was living in GA at the time. He returned to GA and married Eliza Pennington and they moved with William to TX.

William served in the Civil War. Overton was wounded adn William was captured and held prisoner until the end of the war.

The experiences of William G. Davenport (son of Overton) while in the Confederate Army during the years 1863, 1864 and 1865.

When between the age of 17 and 18, I enlisted in Joseph K. Shipman's Company of Major Erath's "Frontier Battalion" and was elected a Sergeant in that Company. I served a few months in that company scouting for Indians in Coryell, Hamilton, Comanche, Brazos and Erath County. I did not meet any Indians and was not in any fights with any Indians.

In June 1864, I was transferred to Captain Joseph T. Cobb's "Texas Scouts" operating in the Mississippi area under Generals Sul Ross, Jackson and Forrest. I took part in General Hood's Tennessee campaign. I left from Waco, Texas, with Lieutenant John C. Sparks, Second Lieutenant of Cobb's Company. There were eight or ten other men with us. We went to Raymond, Mississippi. On our way to Rodney on the Mississippi River, the Yanks tried to capture us. They shelled us for several hours, but we escaped. We crossed the river that night in a skiff and swam our horses alongside. The next day we rode into an encampment of Yanks without knowing it, until we were in their midst. They opened fire on us but no one was hurt on our side. We all escaped, though there were several hundred Yanks. They fired quite a number of volleys at us and we returned the fire.

We reached Raymond, Mississippi, in a day or two and joined the entire Company. We began scouting with the Company and had many exciting incidents chasing Yanks and being chased and return. We went on a scout into the Mississippi and Yazoo River valleys and captured many prisoners. The scouting trips were continued for months. We were ordered to Scout into Natches by way of Port Gibson from Raymond. On September 30, 1863, we entered the town of Port Gibson and stopped for noon in the town. We left our horses in a livery stable while we separated for dinner.

While scattered, the Yanks made a dash into town and attacked us with several companies of men. We engaged one company at the stable where we had left our horses. When the firing began fourteen of our number led by Captain Cobb, Lieutenant Sparks, Smith and White charged the Yanks in the town. In the charge, I was wounded in the head and was unconscious for a short time and was left. When I recovered consciousness, I was in the midst of the Yanks. They ordered me to surrender but I fired into them, spurred my horse and dashed for liberty and escaped back to where the others of my Company were at the stable.

We were then ordered out of town. As we rode out in company formation, columns of four abreast, Newt Crain, who rode to my right and next to me was shot in the head and killed. We crossed the bayou on the outer edge of town and then formed on an eminence, and dared the Yanks out but they refused to follow us, although greatly superior in numbers. I continued with the Company the next day, though was ordered to remain behind. We followed the Yanks to the river. There they took to boats and that ended the incident.

I was then unable for duty until Hood's Tennessee Campaign began. I was then with the Company all the time and took part in fighting at Columbia, Tennessee, near Shelbyville. In this last fight, I captured two prisoners and brought them in alone. The next day, we went into the town but were repulsed and driven out. We then went for the railroad tracks, intending to cut the tracks. The Yankees followed in force. We only had two companies and they opened fire on us continually during the day. It made it a very unpleasant day for us. We endured several attacks being made and pushed against us and succeeded in repulsing our opponents, emptying many saddles.

We then had a short respite and were rejoicing, when suddenly we rode into a regiment of the enemy. They did not know our strength nor we theirs. We dashed at them and ordered them to surrender. They likewise ordered us to surrender. We killed several Yanks and captured quite a number. They continued fighting running and fighting all the time. When we halted in this running fight, I shot a Yankee in the back. Lieutenant White, who was by my side said "You have got him" but just at this time a Yank shot White in the right arm. His pistol failed to the ground (we were using pistols). He ordered me to stop, get down and get the pistol. The Yanks then turned on us and pushed us back.

Others of our men came up in a short while and we halted, formed a new line and opened fire and held the enemy back. While in line, one of our men had his horse shot from under him. We were near a house and he got a horse from the stable. We were then ordered to make our way out the best we could, as the Yanks were closing in on us from both sides. We made a dash for the river (Duck River) and beat the Yanks to the crossing and made our escaped. That night while I was out guarding a Negro man (a Yankee soldier) we had captured that day. I had the Negro gathering corn for feed and I took my eyes off him a moment and he escaped. He took a fine Mexican blanket of Captain Cobb's while escaping. I never knew how he escaped, as I was very watchful. He tried to get my pistol a short time before, but it was then nearly dark. On our return to the main company we went started fighting at Franklin. We were on the extreme right of the Confederate line. We then were in a fight at Murfreesboro, capturing many prisoners. In the meantime we went entirely around the Yanks position. I then went to Nashville on December 15th. On that day my father (Overton) was wounded while commanding his company, Company K of the 10th Texas Infantry. I found him in an old boxcar that night with other wounded. On the 16th the battle reopened and Hood was defeated. I then put my father on my horse and brought him to Franklin and down to Tuscumbia, Alabama. I did not see him again until the war was over and we went home. The hardships of the retreat back to Mississippi can be imagined but we got back there after enduring many privations.

From Oxford, Mississippi, I was sent with orders on a scout into the Mississippi Valley. We captured several prisoners and some stock. I then was sent out with stock and provisions and got separated from my command. While waiting for my command a call was made for volunteers to carry a dispatch to a Yankee officer. I volunteered; went and was captured at Friars Point, Mississippi, carried to Helena, Arkansas, then to Camp Douglas, Illinois.

I was captured February 18, 1865 and was a prisoner until the end of the war. While I was in prison President Lincoln was assassinated. I tried to get out on a prisoner exchange using another's name, having paid a man for the right to use his name. I was found out and punished by the Yanks. I had to ride "Morgan's Mule" a slat nailed up on high legs. Had to wear a barrel and work in the prison. I was paroled and went to Georgia to see my grandparents and from there home.

This is a partial history of my war experiences and the first time I have ever attempted to write it. I state facts here that are bright in my memory, but the hardships endured will never be forgotten.

Very affectionately,

William Grant Davenport

Notes for Harbert DAVENPORT:

DAVENPORT, HARBERT (1882-1957). Harbert Davenport, lawyer and historian, was born in Eastland, Texas, on October 19, 1882, the son of O. H. and Elizabeth (Merril) Davenport. In 1904 he married Elizabeth Pettit; they had two sons. After living in Rusk for two years, the family resided in Austin from 1906 to 1908, when Davenport received an LL.B. from the University of Texas. He practiced law in Anahuac until 1912, the year he established permanent residence in Brownsville, where he was a law associate of Judge James B. Wells, Jr.qv During World War Iqv Davenport became a second lieutenant in the air corps. He was recognized as an authority on southwestern land and water law and on Spanish and Mexican law as it applied to Texas. Concerned with procuring needed water legislation for the Rio Grande valley, Davenport wrote "The Texas Law on Flowing Waters as Applied to Irrigation from the Lower Rio Grande." One of his important legal cases involved the disputed title to Padre Island.qv In 1944 the state Supreme Court decided the case in favor of the descendants of Padre Nicolás Ballí,qv who had received the original land grant from the Spanish government in 1800. As a historian, Davenport was particularly interested in early Spanish expeditions, personnel of the Goliad campaigns, and the history of the lower Rio Grande area. He contributed several articles to the Southwestern Historical Quarterly.qv From 1922 to 1955 he was a member of the executive council of the Texas State Historical Association,qv and from 1939 to 1942 he was president of the association. He also served as a member of the Brownsville school board from 1924 to 1932 and contributed to the American Legionqv and other civic organizations. He died on February 23, 1957, and was buried in Buena Vista Cemetery, Brownsville.

Pioneer Experiences of Mary Davenport and Nancy Kelley, deceased, residents of Sabinal UVALDE COUNTY DISTRICT #10 RECEIVED [?] 15 [?] WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION SAN ANTONIO TEXAS AUNT MARY DAVENPORT as told by Mrs. Emma Kelley Davenport

"I remember ma mighty well. We all called her ma or mother. She was born in Missouri in 1823, and a daughter of Captain John Crane. Captain Crane was a boyhood friend and playmate of Sam Houston and both of them enlisted in General Jackson's army in Tennessee when the war broke out with the Creek Indians.

"Of course, she was a grown, married woman when she came to this country but I've heard the older ones tell about her. She was a tall woman and large too. She had a handsome face, black hair and hazel eyes. She was active and a good buisness woman. She managed her own buisness many a year.

"She first married James Elkins of Walker County in 1839 and they lived in the county until he died, leaving her with a daughter, Polly Ann, and ranch stock to take care of.

"She was so pretty and young, of course, the bachelors were soon courting her but the red-headed one named John Davenport won her. He brought her and the young Polly Ann to the Sabinal canyon in 1852 in the train of settlers, among whom were some of his relatives and some of hers: the Cranes, Davenports, Kellys, Fenleys, Old Man McCormick and Captain William Ware. They settled in the Sabinal canyon at that time but in 1854 John moved his family to the D'Hanis settlement. They later settled on Ranchero Creek and continued in the ranching buisness.

"About 1858, John Davenport was captain of a company of minute men that was organized for protection against Indians. Shortly after this, he was killed by Indians and scalped as he was returning home one afternoon riding a mule he had meant to trade off. The Indians overtook him and surrounded him. John fought like a demon but the number of Indians was too great for him. After he fell from the mule, they scalped him. They wanted his red hair.

"Ma took up life again as a widow. She was always ready to go to the sick and rode horseback many a mile at nights to get to a sick bed. And no one ever came to her house without being fed. Many a person made it to her place after a hard journey and whether day or night, it mattered not, she would prepare coffee and something to eat.

"She was a great person to dance. When one of her grandsons or [?] came to her house, she often picked up her fiddle and played but if they played it for her, she didn't sit still long; she got up and danced. She could do regular nigger-jigging and she was a graceful ballroom dancer too.

"Once she went with a crowd to a dance up at Aldine and while they were there, they got word that Indians were in the country. Ross Kennedy and his wife were in the bunch and Mrs. Kennedy says, 'Now, Ross, I'll handle one of the guns and you handle the other and we'll let Mrs. Davenport do the driving.' They were driving a two-horse wagon and had a big bunch of children along. On down the road they discovered that the tap had run off of one of the wheels. They stopped to see what could be done and decided to go back after it. They drove back several miles but never did ind that tap. Well, Mrs. Kennedy and me had to take up watch over the wheel, then. But they didn't run into the Indians and made it home all right.

"Not only were the Indians a worry to her, but very often, 'renegades' came to her house. They demanded something to eat and she has told how frightened she was many a time when she found them suddenly in her house.

"Renegades were men who were hiding out or going to Mexico to keep from fighting in the Civil War and they were bad characters, lots of times. Tales had traveled of how they had done mischief in other places and of course she didn't know what they might do. Once there were several of them stopped a and demanded food. She set about cooking and fixing a meal as quickly as she could. They eyed the walls and ceiling and examined things in the house. She told us afterward that one of the men stood right on the plank of the floor she kept her money under. She said she dared not look at the plank because they were watching her. He never did discover the loose plank and the money was saved.

"For years she had a store about two miles east of where Sabinal now is. It was the old San Antonio road then and still is. The road forked at Uvalde and one went to Eagle Pass one road went to Brackettville. Long mule trains and ox trains used to come by. I've seen them day after day. The Mexicans used to drive two-wheel ox carts and tied the yoke on the steers' heads with rawhide strings. It was cruel the way those poor steers had to hold that load on their heads and pull the loaded wagons too.

"Ma had her stuff hauled out from San Antonio more by the neighbor than by the ox trains, though she sent for some of her merchandise like that too.

"We have an old leather-bound account book she used in her store in 1872 and 1873. She kept a regular bookkeeper and this fine handwriting is his. Some of these old accounts give you an idea of what they generally came into the store and bought. Now here's one account -- it's liquor entirely -- including most of the 'old account' of thirty-six dollars and seventy-five cents:

1872

Aug. 28th To old account ------------- $ 36.75

" " Brot from another page ----- 6.00

Oct. 1st To one treat ---------------- .50

" 8th " one bottle whiskey -------- .75

"The account shows it reached sixty-five dollars and ninety cents but doesn't show that it was over paid.

"Here are accounts of Billy Biggs, Clabe Davenport, Ambrose Davenport, George Johnson, John Binnion, Clabe Davenport's hand (Mexican), John [?], John Miller, Charles Ritcher, John Rinehart, Joe Howel, George [Billard?] Henry Taylor, Monroe Fenley, John Patterson, [?] Rielly, Wendy Buckloo, George Johnson, Jr., J. H. Kennedy, John Kennedy, Ben [?], William Patterson, August Rothe, Jasper Tatum, Henry Patterson, Jack Gibson, A. [?], Samuel Johnson, J. D. Fenley (father of Monroe Fenley), J. C. Ware, A. J. Crane, Jeff Johnson and several Mexican accounts.

"You'll notice that a box of sardines cost thirty cents and the men were great on coming in and buying a pocket handkerchief which usually sold for forty cents, though some are recorded for thirty cents. Then here are other prices:

8 yards calico -----------$ 1.00

1 box hairpins -------------- .25

1 pair sox ------------------- .30

1 " stockings --------------- .30

1 bottle musk ---------------.25 (perfume)

6 lbs starch ----------------1.20

5 yds flannel ---------------2.25

2 pairs shoes ------------- 2.50

1 " bachelor boots ------4.50

4 handkerchiefs ---------1.40

1 bottle sweet oil ---------.50

1 plug tobacco ------------ .20

1 hat ------------------------ 3.50

2 lb candy ------------------- .25

1 box oysters -------------- .23

1 " sardines ---------------- .30

1 can salmon --------------- .35

1 " devils ham (deviled ham) - .30

2 1/2 lbs rope --------------- .75

1 lb. coffee ----------------- .25

12 lbs. flour ---------------- 1.00

2 bottles of cherries ---1.50

1 can peaches ------------- .50

"Ma was a great person to fix things the grandchildren liked. She made a drink she called 'desertine' out of fresh milk, eggs and a powder she bought. When it was cooked it was something like ice cream. All of the children loved to go there. I used to love to go myself, for she always kept so much butter, milk and cheese on hand. She made the finest cheese by using the 'runnet' (renet) from a beef which curdled the milk. Then she used the cheese press to make it firm.

"She was a fine, Christian woman. She never had much of a chance to do church work but she never spared herself or anything she had if it was needed. I've known her to take a pillow off of her own bed to help someone. The preacher always found a friend and helper when he came to her house.

"Besides running her store, she had her own stock. She was under the friendly protection of her old friends and neighbors of that day who looked after her, and helped with her stock but of course there were many Maverick yearlings that belonged to her and were possibly branded other brands because she couldn't be riding after them all the time. But, she didn't seem to miss it and made money all the time. She loaned Reading Black $2,500 cash to buy the town site of Uvalde. She seemed to have cash ready for anything she might choose to invest in. Like the Bible promises. 'Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days,' is a true saying and I know her kindness to others was returned to her many times. There was one time that she took the last dust of corn meal in her 00066bin to feed a man's horse. He had made it to her place after a hard ride and she had no horse-feed so she gave him the meal for his horse.

"Being of a practical turn, ma was sensible about anything which came up to be done. In hog-killing time, she always got men to help her with the butchering but she usually handled the rifle herself. She would pick out the hog she wanted to kill, aim steadily at him and shoot him right between the eyes everytime. There was someone there to stick the hog but she was capable of that too. If the occasion arose, she could stick a hog as well as shoot one.

"There is a tale told yet among ma's friends of the time she told one of her boys to go out and kill a Maverick yearling. He was gone several hours and came back without the meat and as she was worrying about not having some fresh meat, he said, 'Well don't worry, ma, we'll have some fresh meat by night if we have to kill one of our own!'

"Ma was the mother of six children, who were Polly Ann, the wife of the late Clabe Davenport; Katherine, the wife of the late Monroe Fenley; John who was my husband; Ambrose who married [?] Reilly and the two boys who died, Howell and Jim."

Roy owned his home and it's value was $6000. He was a veteran.

Roy had spoken to his family about attending the last Harris Co., TX public hanging. In my research, I found on Feb. 13, 1916, the last hanging took place in Harris Co., TX. Henry Sampson was hanged for murder and robbery. Roy would have been 19 at this time. In Texas, each county performed their executions until hanging was replaced by electricution in 1924.

Information found online: Colorado County District Court Records

Criminal Cause File Index, 1837-1930

Criminal Cause File No. 3047: State of Texas v. Perry Frisson, Willie Dumas, and Henry Sampson (1911) burglary.

Criminal Cause File No. 3050: State of Texas v. Perry Frisson, Willie Dumas, and Henry Sampson (1911) burglary

(This may be the same Henry Sampson that was executed)

Roy talked to his grandson Ricky about training as a pilot and visited a barber shop in downtown San Antonio, TX, where part of his training was being spun in a barber chair. When visiting the Alamo and downtown San Antonio, across the street from the Alamo, on the 2nd floor was a display of a barber chair. Apparently this was the place. The chair was known as the Barany Chair. It is used to eliminate the effects of spatial disorientation. I read an article where pilot training included 3 days of the Barany Chair. I found nothing online about this particular barber shop/military training facility.
