Finding Our Warrick County, IN Ancestors

Davis, Thomas F.

Transcribed from the book "History of Warrick County" by Goodspeed, Chicago: Goodspeed Bros., 1885, submitted by Judy.  

"THOMAS F. DAVIS, born in Mercer County , KY. , December 9, 1829 , is the third of four children born to Thomas S. and Martha (Robinson) Davis, both natives of Kentucky , where the mother died when our subject was a small lad. The father, five years later, married again, and for a number of years afterward made his home in his native State, engaged in farming, and preaching in the interests of the Methodist Episcopal faith. In 1839 he moved to Warrick County , Ind. , locating in Boon Township , making his home therein the remainder of his days. He died in the religious faith advocated by him in October, 1865. Thomas F. Davis came with his father to this county, and was raised on a farm, receiving a limited education. At the age of twenty-three he purchased land adjoining the homestead, on which he moved after his marriage, and where he successfully followed agricultural pursuits up to the present time. He now owns a nicely improved farm of 160 acres; is a radical Republican in politics, and he and wife belong to the Methodist Episcopal Church. April 15, 1858 , his union with Dorothy Duncan was solemnized, and to them have been born eight children, whose names are J. William, Oliver P., Thomas S., Charles E., Martha E., Sarah, Emma and Simon."
