THE DESCENDANTS OF ABEL DAVIS

1 ABEL DAVIS died 20 November 1826. His estate was administered by his
 son in Wilcox County, Alabama. Married to
Agnus Packer who died 12 August 1819, place unknown. She is said to
 have been the sister of Robert Packer of
Monroe County, Alabama, and the daughter of John Packer who received
 a land grant in the Georgetown, South
Carolina, area in 1765.

          "Abel Davis of Monroe" purchased Section 21 in Range 6 East, 
Township 10 North, Monroe County, Alabama Territory, East of Alabama
 [River], from the U. S. Land Office in Cahaba on 5 August 1819. 
The center of this section is 6 miles west of the community of Hybart.
 The northern boundary is the Monroe-Wilcox County
     line. The Alabama River crossed the southwest corner of Section
 21 and as originally surveyed it contained 631
     acres, but was later found to contain 626.6 acres. The purchase
 was made under the credit system with Abel Davis
     paying $31.27½ in cash and $300.00 in land stock (25% down for
 631 acres @ $2.10 per acre). The land stock,
Certificate #89, originally issued on 1 July 1815 to Ebenezia Jackson,
 had most likely been issued as part of the
settlement of claims made by victims of the Yazoo Land Fraud. 
It could only be used to purchase land in Alabama
and Mississippi and frequently sold at a discount. At some point Abel
 Davis assigned his interest in the land to
William Powell and may have been only acting as Powell's agent. 
The purchase of the entire section under the credit
arrangement was not completed. Instead, the purchase of the SW¼ of 
Section 21 containing 149 acres was
completed by giving up the remaining portion of Section 21 and paying
 $18.37½ in interest. On 1 February 1826
a land patent was issued.

                            THE CAMDEN SHOOTING

     MR. HORN WAS SHOT BY COLONEL E. N. JONES AND HIS SON, DICK JONES


    Camden, Jan. 26 - (Special to the Montgomery Advertiser) -
Camden was shocked last Saturday by what may prove a fatal
shooting affair between Colonel E. N. Jones and P. M. Horn, Esq.

    It seems there were some differences between the heirs of
the Horn estate and a law suit was the result. Colonel E. N. Jones was
employed as attorney on one side in the case, and in opposition to P.
M. Horn, who, it seems, became offended with Colonel Jones for
remarks he made and questions asked during the preliminaries which
were held Friday. The next day, (Saturday) the two met near Mr.
Jones' office, and after a few heated remarks by both parties, the
shooting began. Mr. Jones shot Mr. Horn, the ball entering the mouth
and coming out in the neighborhood of the ear. Mr. Horn then grappled
with Mr. Jones, and it was then that Mr. Dick Jones, son of the
colonel, came upon the scene, and thinking it was his father who was
shot, pulled his gun and fired, the ball entering the rear of the
 head.

   Mr. Horn was known as a man who was quick to use a
weapon, and it was this fact, as thought by many, which caused Mr.
Jones to be so quick with his own.

   Mr. Horn is alive at this writing, and his appearance indicates
an improvement in his condition, but there is little hope entertained
 by his friends of his recovery.

                                                  
                                                  
                                   

                              Peter Horn Dead

                   The Victim of a Pistol Shot at Camden

                           (Montgomery Journal)

    Mr. Peter Horn died at the city infirmary from a wound received
 in the head in a difficulty with Colonel Ed. Jones about ten
 days or two weeks ago. Mr. Horn was brought to this city several
 days ago, and undertook a difficult surgical operation. A part of 
the ball was located near the brain and removed. He had no chance
 to live  with the ball pressing upon the brain. He had a small 
chance with the ball removed. His condition was regarded as critical
 all along, and but few hopes were entertained of his recovery.
 His remains were sent back to Camden last night via Selma.

     Col. Jones does not appear to have suffered any serious legal
 consequences from the shooting as he was practicing
law in Camden at the time of the 1900 Census. However, his son
 Dick is said to have "gone to Texas."

INFORMATION ABOUT THIS DAVIS FAMILY HISTORY

     This history of the Davis family is the completion of efforts
 to determine the origins of the Davis family and to record
the members of the various branches as far as is known. Credit must
 be given to the many family members who have
supplied information and particularly those who have collected 
information in the past. Without the contributions of Jeannette
Smith, Lucille Newsom, Rebecca Welch, Lou Turberville, and Bess 
Pack this work would not have been possible.

     Many schemes have been used to record genealogy. All have 
defects and the one used here is no exception. Each
generation is grouped together. Because of the duplication of names 
among the various branches of the family, a numbering
system is used to distinguish the various family members. Each Davis
 descendant is assigned a number. The oldest child in
a family receives his parent's number with a "1" appended. The 
second oldest child receives his parent's number with a "2"
appended. The first known Davis, Abel Davis, is number 
1. Thus, his oldest child is 11, next oldest child is 12, third 
oldest
child is 13, etc. A similar scheme is used for succeeding generations. 
By eliminating the last digit in a person's number, the
number of his parent may be found.
 
     After each three digits in a family member's number a raised 
period " " is used to separate the digits to make them
easier to read, much as a comma is used with ordinary numbers. Note
 that the number of digits in a person's number is the
same as the number of his generation. Thus, number 111 257 1 belongs
 to the seventh generation.

     Braces { } are used to enclose the former surname of a wife in
 the main body of the text but are omitted in the Personal
Name Index. Compiler's notes are enclosed in brackets [ ].
 Superscript numbers refer to items in the Reference Section.

Efforts to trace the roots of this particular Davis family 
have not met with much success. The dates of death of the
earliest known family members, Abel and his wife Agnus, were 
found in a Bible in the possession of the descendants of
Nathan Gerald Davis (117). Presumably they had come to Alabama
 from South Carolina since records indicate their three
oldest children were born there. Robert and Samuel Packer,
 said to be brothers of Agnus, apparently came to Alabama
during territorial times along with members of the McCants 
family with whom the Packers were intermarried in South
Carolina.

     Coming to Alabama from Halifax County, North Carolina, 
about the same time was Enoch Davis. Court records in
Halifax County indicate that Enoch had a brother Abel, 
was the son of Samuel, and the grandson of John. A history of
Enoch Davis family has been recently published. So far it has not
 been possible to show a relationship between the two
families.

     In 1797 the will of John Davis was probated in Hyde County,
 North Carolina. The legatees were Daniel, William,
Abi, Charity, Molly, Priscilla, and Jerusha.  Perhaps Abi is the
 same as Abel.  Further research is needed.

     It may be that the Abel Davis who in 1768 received a land grant
 of 100 acres on Tarrals Bay in South Caralina was
the ancestor or close relative of the Abel Davis considered here.

     One tradition states that Abel had a wooden leg, the result 
of a war injury. There were men by the name of Abel Davis
who served in the Revolutionary War from New Hampshire, Delaware,
 Massachusetts, and Conneticut. It has not been
possible to show that any of them was the Abel Davis who moved to 
Alabama. So far, no Abel Davis has been found in the
War of 1812 records.

     Abel Davis transported 4 slaves from South Carolina into 
Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia, in March 1818.
Presumably they were being taken to the Mississippi Territory.

     On 5 August 1819, Abel Davis, Daniel Davis, and Samuel Davis 
bought adjoining tracts of land from the U. S. Land
Office at Cahaba. The land was on the east side of the Alabama 
River in Monroe County, Alabama Territory. It was in
Sections 21, 22, and 27 of Township 10 North, Range 6 East, across
 the Alabama River from Packer's Bend and
immediately south of the present day Monroe-Wilcox County line.
 In the fall of 1827 the Alabama legislature passed an Act
for the benefit of the estate of Daniel Davis. It appears that 
Abel Davis had been appointed Administrator and upon his death
his son John P. Davis had replaced him. The act legalized the sales
 of some of the land of Daniel Davis and allowed John
P. Davis to post his administrator's bond in Wilcox County where he
 lived rather than in Monroe County where the estate
had been probated. Monroe County records were destroyed in a 
courthouse fire in 1833 so that no information can be gained
from that source. No doubt Daniel and Abel must have been close
 kin for so much trouble to have been taken.

     Florence {Packer} Spencer (1862-1960), a grandaughter of 
David Packer, who lived near Coy in Wilcox County, stated
that she had been told that Abel Davis became ill, died, and was
 buried at the home of his brother-in-law, Robert Packer,
who lived at Packer's Bend on the west side of the Alabama River
 in Monroe County. She said there had been a large
cemetery there at one time. Efforts to locate this cemetery have
 turned up only a small cemetery containing the markers for
three of the children of David Packer, son of Robert Packer. This
 is probably the cemetery for which Jane Dick Packer,
daughter of David Packer, left funds for fencing when she died in
 Wilcox County in 1937.

      Unless otherwise noted, most of the family members during the
 last century were farmers.
