Notes


DIGGIN' FOR DAVISES Special Edition, Volume 1, Issue 3 January, 1995 This newsletter is dedicated to recording the history and genealogy of the descendants of Samuel Davis, I, of Virginia; and is intended to be a supplement to the book "Descendants of Samuel Davis, I, of Isle of Wight County, Virginia". Your comments, letters, notes, calls, and manuscripts are welcome. (posted to Hodges-L@Rootsweb.com mailing List) ----------------------------------------------------------------- --
Captain LEWIS DAVIS of Nash County, North Carolina. Since many of our "cousins" are descended from Dioclesian Davis of Washington County, GA, and his father Lewis, of Nash County, NC, I am sending this"special update".We are working on information which alters the ancestry of Lewis Davis, father of Dioclesian. We recently received photo copies of pages from a typewritten manuscript, probably unpublished, called "Morrison and Other Families" by
Anna Morrison Wilson. We have no other information about the content or the author, but her assertions are verified by other sources. The pages were sent by a descendant/researcher from Pleasanton, Texas.The author has some very interesting comments on the Davis families of Dolphin Alston Davis b.1759 and his wife Ann Stevenson. One of their children was named Thomas Drew Davis, b.1792, Fayetteville, Cumberland Co., NC. Dolphin's parents were
Thomas Davis, d.1764, Bute/Franklin Co., NC and Hartwell Hodges. We know that our Lewis was a brother of this Thomas, because he was an executor of Thomas' will and he and his son Dioclesian were named as legatees.Anna Morrison Wilson writes that the Thomas Davis who married Hartwell Hodges was a son of John Davis and Ann Drew of Isle of Wight Co., Va. She being a daughter of William Drew of Isle of Wight County. William Drew also had a son named Dolphin Drew. This is most likely where the name "Dolphin" comes from. The name appears liberally sprinkled through-out the descendants of Thomas Davis and Hartwell Hodges, but not in any family descended from Samuel Davis, II, who removed to Pasquotank County, NC in 1660, and who was originally thought to be the ancestor of Lewis Davis.The same Thomas Davis purchased land in Edgecombe County, North Carolina in 1749 from a "Joseph Davis of Edgecombe County".


In the original deed document Thomas is described as "Thomas Davis of Isle of Wight Co., Va.", an abstract of which appears on page 107 in the book Abstracts of Deeds, Edgecombe Precinct, Edgecombe County, North Carolina, 1732 through 1758 by Margaret M. Hofmann. Also, Thomas Davis married Hartwell Hodges in Isle of Wight Co., Virginia in 1752. This was confirmed from published church records found on page 14 in the book Marriages of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, 1628-1800 by Blanche Adams Chapman.This would mean that Lewis and his brother Thomas were born in Isle of Wight County, Virginia and removed to Edgecombe County, North Carolina; Lewis in about 1751 and Thomas sometime between 1752 and 1755.


Tabitha Davis, the wife named in Lewis' will was most likely a daughter of a family named Young which lived on a farm adjoining Lewis'. This is most likely the source of the name of Lewis' second son, Young Davis, of whom there is scant information.Confusing the research into the life of our Lewis Davis is the fact that another Lewis/Louis Davis was living in the same Edgecombe Precinct at the same time as our Lewis Davis. Lewis/Louis was a son of Arthur Davis, II and Mary (_______); was older than our Lewis; lived on land adjacent to Looking Glass Swamp which fell within the boundaries of Halifax County when it was created in 1746; had a spouse named Martha (_______); and died without heirs in Halifax County in 1760. He would have been a distantrelation to our Lewis. Several researchers have published accounts which state that our Dioclesian was a son of this Louis/Lewis, which has been shown to be incorrect by more in-depth research.Our Lewis lived on the boundary line between Edgecombe/Nash County(s) and Bute/Franklin County(s). A book, Bute County, North Carolina, Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions, 1767-1779 abstracted by Brent Howard Holcomb, published in 1988, and just recently obtained by the compiler has
added substantial amounts of information about the life of our Lewis Davis. A correct Ahnentafel Chart for Thomas and Lewis Davis would look thus:


Samuel Davis, I (c.1610 - c.1667)
= Elizabeth Benton+John Davis, Sr. (c.1633 - 1714)
= (1)Mary Tooke (2)Mary Green (no issue) Samuel Davis, Gent. (c.1663 - 1738)
= Amy Bourden(Bowdoin)+John Davis, Sr. (c.1684 - 1750)
= Ann Drew+Lewis Davis (c.1716 - 1779)
= Tabitha (?)YoungCapt. Lewis Davis, was born about 1716 in Isle of Wight Co, Va., and married in North Carolina, Tabitha Young. Lewis died in 1779 in Nash Co., NC. In about 1751 he removed to a part of Edgecombe County that fell within the boundaries of the new Nash County when it was created in 1777. From 1751 to 1764 his tract was on the border between Edgecombe and Granville Counties. In 1764 the easternmost portion of Granville became Bute (pronounced "boot") County. His tract remained in Edgecombe County but now bordered Bute County. In 1777, Edgecombe County was divided in half and the westernmost portion, which encompassed his plantation, became Nash County. Later, in 1779, the northern half of Bute was renamed Warren County, and the southern half became Franklin County. Bute County was then extinct. His tract in Nash County now bordered Franklin County. When the name and boundary changes were made in 1779, Lewis' land which adjoined that of his brother Thomas, remained in Nash County, and Thomas' land which had been in southern Bute County, was then within the boundaries of the new Franklin County.


In a deed dated 12 Oct 1751, in consideration of "24 pounds current money of Virginia", he bought from William Smith in Edgecombe County, "160 acres on the south side of Great Fishing Creek, joining the creek". On 27 Mar 1755 a survey was performed on "450 Acs. in Granville County in the Parish of St. John, on both sides of Fishing Creek, joining Capt. Young, Robert Taylor, and a branch" for Lewis Davis, to whom Lord Granville awarded a land grant for the tract on 27 Nov 1760. This tract, described as 450 acres "on the S side of Fishing Creek on Capt. Young's line", he sold in 1761 to Thomas Moseley. At a County Court session held on 26 Sep 1758, he was referred to as "Capt. Lewis Davis", indicating that he held the rank of Captain in the Edgecombe County militia. At the Court session of 26 June 1759, his name was on a list of men "Quallified as Militia Officers by taking the Oaths according to Law & Subscribing the Test." At the same session, the following appears: "Andrew Booth, Overseer of the Road from Fishing Creek Bridgeto the Granville line. Orderd that the Hands of Arthur Davis & Lewis Davis,Saml. Miller, Solomon Davis, Wm. Gainer, Wm. Portis & John Portis, work on the same". On 24 April 1764, he was appointed and sworn as a Justice of the Peace for Edgecombe County. He served many times as both a Grand and Petit Juryman. At the time of his death his main plantation was 440 acres situated near the White Oak Swamp, on the boundary line between Franklin and Nash counties, south of Fishing Creek between Sandy Creek and Red Bud Creek, adjoining John Dear's Path. In 1973, a new boundary line was drawn between Franklin and Nash counties. It was placed to the east of the previous line, and east of where Lewis Davis lived, now placing his old homesite in present-day Franklin County.


The transcript of his will reads: "In the name of God, Amen. I Lewis Davis of Nash County of the State of North Carolina being weak of body but in perfect sinces mind and memory do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form as followeth, viz: Imprismis: I give and bequeath unto my eldest son Dioclesian Davis one cross cut saw, and one iron kettle and one rifle gun that is now in the hands of Davis Connell.

Poche Plantation auction shuts another page of state history

Auction ringman Ronnie Zeigler displays an antique fireplace screen Saturday during the Poche Plantation estate sale in Convent. Gonzales-area businessman Mark Anderson and his wife, Yvette, purchased the 6,500-square-foot Victorian Renaissance Revival home for $585,000.
CONVENT -- Another page of Louisiana's history was turned Saturday as the Poche Plantation changed hands and its Civil War-era antiques and furnishings were auctioned to the highest bidder.
Gonzales-area businessman Mark Anderson, 43, and his wife Yvette, 41, purchased the 6,500- square-foot Victorian Renaissance Revival home and five outbuildings on nearly four acres of land for $585,000. The couple said they plan to make it their personal home.


Built along the banks of the Mississippi River by Judge Felix Pierre Poche in 1867 or 1868, according to conflicting records, it is the last of the area's plantation homes to be built, said former owners Greg and Linda Meffert.


The New Orleans couple operated the home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as a bed and breakfast for five years before deciding to sell it.


The Mefferts did not attend the auction because "it was too sad for them," said Realtor Mac Buhler of Burns & Co., The Real Estate Group. The estate was appraised at $1.2 million, and the low sale price "shocked me," Buhler said. He added the final purchase is pending an owner verification process.


Anderson said that he was "in shock" as well, adding "we're happy to have it. It's a beautiful old home." He's the founder of The Ascension Citizen weekly newspaper in Gonzales and also owns a national TeleWeb corporation.


The two-story home features eight fireplaces and an Anglo-American floor plan which contrasts with other River Road plantation homes built in the Greek Revival style prior to the Civil War. It originally overlooked the Mississippi but was rolled back from the riverfront on large pine logs when the levee was constructed in 1929.


"Poche Plantation is an architectural and cultural treasure," said Carolyn Bennett, executive director of the Foundation for Historical Louisiana, a non-profit group that strives to preserve the state's cultural and architectural heritage.


"Every year, it seems, we lose one of these great homes," Bennett said. "There are other homes along the river that are suffering demolition by neglect. We hope they'll appreciate its value and take care of it."


Anderson promised her that Poche Plantation would not be neglected because, he said, when he was a boy growing up in the area, he and his friends used to play in the abandoned Welham Plantation at Hester before it was demolished.


"They just bulldozed it down one night and all that's left is an empty piece of land to this day," Anderson said. "That's always stuck with me. We want to save this house."


The home's builder, Judge Poche, survived at least four Civil War battles which he documented in a diary now believed to be one of the few remaining records left by a Confederate officer. He started a law firm, was elected as a Democrat to the state Senate in 1868, served as a Louisiana Supreme Court justice and was co-founder of the American Bar Association.


Poche moved to New Orleans in 1892 and sold the home to Judge Henry and Adele Himel, according to historical records.


"Before the Civil War, fully three-fourths of the millionaires in the United States lived along the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Natchez, representing a lifestyle long vanished," said auctioneer Ken Buhler of Buhler's Auction Gallery LLC. "Only in the great plantation homes such as Poche can we glimpse a way of life identified with the Deep South and the Louisiana aristocracy."


Buhler sold the real estate along with Burns & Co. Realtors of Baton Rouge and Prudential Gardner Realtors of New Orleans. A $10 entry fee collected from the hundred or so bidders will benefit The Foundation for Historical Louisiana.


Before the home was sold to the highest bidder, dozens of pieces of art, glassware and furniture were auctioned. A hand-carved rocking horse went for $425, a mahogany desk-bookcase went for $4,500 and the home's main treasure, an 1855 mahogany full tester bed, drew a high bid of $20,500.
