Notes


Kentucky: A History of the State, Battle, Perrin, Kniffin 2nd ed., 1885 Livingston Co. BIO: ASA ALVIS, Livingston County, was born June 17, 1812, in Sumner County, Tenn. Mr. Alvis traces his paternal ancestry to Virginia, but has no definite knowledge of the family beyond the grandfather, whose name was Ashley Alvis. Ashley Alvis was born in Buckingham County, Va., but left his native State as early as 1806, immigrating to Sumner County, Tenn. He served in the war of the Revolution, and was with Washington's army during the several years of that struggle. Abraham Alvis, subject's father, was born in Virginia and immigrated to Tennessee two years after his father. He served in the war of 1812, and in the Indian campaigns of Florida. He was a farmer by occupation, and died about 1854. Love (Ventress) Alvis, subject's mother, was born in North Carolina, and was a daughter of David Ventress. She died in 1836. The family of Abraham and Love Alvis consisted to two children, viz.: infant (deceased) and Asa, subject of this sketch. Asa Alvis was reared in his native county, and at the age of twenty years commenced working for himself at different vocations. In 1837 he purchased a farm in Sumner County, and May 3, of the same year was married to Blanche Jackson, daughter of Bartholomew and Martha (Clark) Jackson, of North Carolina. After marriage he commenced farming, and resided upon his farm for a period of nine years, at the end of which time he disposed of it and purchased other tracts of real estate in different parts of Tennessee. In 1858 he moved to Kentucky, and purchased his present farm of 369 acres of choice land in Livingston County, one-half mile from Salem village.


By his first marriage, Mr. Alvis had a family of ten children, four of whom are living, viz.: Abraham B., Zachariah H., W.O., and Ashley G. The deceased children were named as follows: David L., Robert H., Martha D., Mary C., James G. and Charles L. After thirty years of wedded life Mrs. Alvis died March, 1869.


Mr. Alvis' second marriage took place in the latter part of the last named year, with Mrs. Mable Baxter, daughter of Henry and Charlotte Alley, of Livingston County. This marriage has been blessed with the following children: Alda, Asa, Electa, Ophelia and Mabel. Mr. Alvis is a very successful farmer and stock raiser, and his life has been characterized by an untiring industry. He is a member of the Baptist Church, to which he has belonged for about forty years, and also belongs to the Masonic fraternity.

Cornet William DAVISON "the Immigrant"

____ - ____

ID Number: I78002

  • TITLE: Cornet
  • RESIDENCE: See: Dublin, IRE and PA
  • BIRTH: Dublin, Ireland
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2095]

Family 1 : Sarah ARMSTRONG
  1. +John DAVISON

Notes


Col. Armstrong and Cornet William Davison were natives of Dublin, Ireland, where the father of the latter was a banker. Col. Armstrong's regiment, which was stationed in Dublin, was ordered to put down some disturbances between the Irish and the English. They refused to obey orders. Other troops were ordered out, the regiment disbanded, the officers court-martialed, and some of them Major William Davison shot. Col. Armstrong, young Cornet, and two other brothers of the latter escaped to America and landed in Philadelphia penniless.


William Davison was at that time nineteen years old, and betrothed to Sarah Armstrong, daughter of his Colonel. He and Col. Armstrong remained in Philadelphia, and as soon as the young man's income was sufficiently large, he married his lady-love. A prize was put on Col. Armstrong's head, "dead or alive," by the English authorities, so he lived in strict seclusion. How or when his family joined him is not known.


The brothers of William Davison changed the spelling of their names; one went to Kentucky, the other settled in Virginia, and many of their descendants have become leading people in their localities. For many years there was no intercourse between the families, but when they did meet they identified each other by their family tradition, which was related by each branch without variation."


"Tradition asserts that this family of Davisons is descended from one of the four sons of William Davison, the unfortunate Secretary of State, and Privy Councilor of Queen Elizabeth of England, in 1568; but the family have no data by which the fact can be verified. Elizabeth signed the death warrant of Mary, Queen of Scotland, and gave it to Secretary Davison, he said, with instructions to deliver it at once to the Lord High Sheriff. This he did, and beautiful Queen Mary was beheaded next morning. To appease the angry disapproval of the public, Elizabeth asserted she gave the warrant to Davison, with orders to hold it for further orders. Davison was sent to the tower, and his property confiscated. After two years, partial justice was done him by releasing him, but his property was never restored. In 1568, he married Katherine Spellman, and settled in Dublin, Ireland, and had six children. His biographer, Sir Nicholas H. Nicoli, describes him as "an honourable, upright man, gentle and affectionate in his family." He was of Welsh extraction."
