Samuel Caddell Davis Family

 

William Davis born sometime before 1765 per the 1810 Giles County, Virginia census married Priscilla Grimes probably sometime around mid to late 1770’s in unknown place. They had eight known children: Mary born about 1780 married James Drinnon 12 May 1797 in Bath County, Virginia; James born in the 1780’s married Rachel Kennison 12 May 1797 in Bath County; Hiram H. born about 1779-80 married Elizabeth “Betsey” Burk 21 July 1808 in Giles; William born about 1781[1] in North Carolina married 1st Lovica (maiden name unknown) and 2nd Nancy Cook Banes; Nancy born about 1793[2] married Mark Kennison in or around Bath County. Later moved to Elkhart County, Indiana; Abraham born about 1791 in Virginia[3] married Sarah Moore 17 March 1817 in Giles; Isaac born between 1790-1800 married Jane Patterson 24 December 1818 in Wythe County, Virginia; Archibald born about 1798 in Virginia[4] married Elizabeth Caddall 16 July 1823 in Giles County.

Samuel was listed in the 1850 Pulaski County census living with his parents, Archibald and Elizabeth. Oddly, Samuel was listed as owning the land. No deeds are available before 1853. On February 16, 1853, Samuel bought land from the Summers family which was on the waters of Peak Creek.[8] Samuel conveyed this land to John Wygal on March 31, 1857. On April 5, 1857,[9] Samuel was conveyed land on Little Walkers Creek by Joshua Mustard.[10] Samuel’s mother, Elizabeth died in Pulaski on 06 July 1856[11] and it seems, he decided to move after her death.

 

Samuel also bought land on Little Walkers Creek from John C. Crockett, conveyed on February 10, 1869 containing 50 acres.[12] On September 30, 1870, land was conveyed to Samuel on Little Walkers Creek by Phineas Thurston estimated for tax purposes at 200 acres.[13]

 

Samuel enlisted in the Confederate States Army, the 45th Infantry Regiment, Company F “The Bland County Sharpshooters” under Captain Andrew J. Grayson. He was issued clothing on December 15, 1864. Samuel was captured at Waynesboro on March 2, 1865; prisoner of war at Fort Delaware on Pea Patch Island in the Delaware River approximately 15 miles south of Wilmington, Delaware. A query was made to the Fort Delaware Society about Private Samuel Davis and in answer, “He was assigned to Prison Division 2 which was most likely one of the wooden barracks located outside of the Fort itself”. Samuel took the Oath of Allegiance and was released on June 19, 1865. He was described as having gray eyes with light hair and was five feet eleven inches tall.[14] Samuel probably enlisted on May 29, 1861 in Wytheville with his brother, Rush F. Davis who was also in the 45th. The Forty-Fifth Virginia Infantry was organized on May 29, 1861, and was mustered into Confederate service a few days later. Samuel may have fought in several battles and skirmishes including: August 12, 1861 - contact at Tyree's Tavern near Big Sewell Mountain, Fayette Co., WV; April 10, 1862 - skirmish between Dublin and Pearisburg, Giles County, VA; August 5-31, 1863- operations against Averill's Raid from Winchester, Va.; through Hardy, Pendleton, Highland, Bath, Greenbrier, and Pocahontas Counties, VA and WV; December 29, 1863- engagement Mossy Creek and Talbot Station Jefferson County, TN; May 9, 1864 - engagement, Cloyd's Mountain, Cloyd family farm, Pulaski County, VA; October 19, 1864 - battle, Cedar Creek, Middletown, Shenandoah Co., and Belle Grove, VA; March 2, 1865 - engagement, Waynesboro, Augusta County, VA where Samuel was captured; March 3, 1865 - Unit participated in the evacuation of Charlottesville, VA; General Robert E. Lee surrendered on April 9, 1865 at the Appomattox Court House.

 

Samuel C. Davis died without a will; his land was partitioned by the Bland County court between his children and submitted to the court on November 15, 1907:[15]

 

“This cause came upon this day to be heard upon a bill and exhibits filed therewith, duly matured at rules, upon process duly executed, upon the bill taken for confessed as to H. N. Davis, upon the answer of the infant defendants over fourteen, Haynie King and Blanche Davis, and the answers by their guardian ad litem, Wm. C. Thomas, as required by law, and was argued by counsel. Upon consideration of which, and the court being of opinion that the heirs of S. C. Davis, deceased, are entitled to have his lands partitioned in kind; it is therefore adjudged, ordered and decreed that the following free-holders, any three of whom may act, Namely L. D. Repass, Surveyor, John C. Mustard, M. B. Allen… be the same they are hereby directed to go upon the lands of the late S. C. Davis, upon the 8th day of November, 1907, and after being duly sworn, shall partition and allot the lands in the bill mentioned to the following parties in severalty, a part equal to, each one interest in the whole, if this be practicable, having a due regard to the interest of all concerned, that is to say: they shall allot by metes and bounds 1/12 part thereof to the heirs of John T. Davis, deceased; 1/12 part thereof to H. N. Davis; 1/12 part thereof to Emmett Davis assignee of Martha J. Parcell; 3/12 part thereof to David C. Davis, assignee of James W. Davis, Amelia A. Davis and Bettie Corder 6/12 part thereof to R. L. Davis, of which is entitled to in his own right and the remaining as assignee of J. B. Davis, S. C. Davis, Jr.., Charles W. Davis, Edna D. Cassell, and Polly Davis, for this purpose they shall meet upon the premises on Friday Nov. 8th 1907.”

Lot No. 1—assigned to R. L. Davis, it being 6/12 part in value of the whole tract, 1/12 of which he is entitled to by inheritance, and 5/12 by purchase—containing 170 acres.

Lot No. 2—assigned to S. D. Davis, it being 3/12 in value of the whole tract, being the part acquired by him by purchase from James W. Davis, Permelia A. Davis and Bettie Corder. This lot being assigned in three separate parcels or sections—containing 90 acres and 73 square rods.

Lot No. 3—assigned to the heirs of John T. Davis, it being 1/12 in value of the whole tract—containing 46 acres and 4 square rods.

Lot No. 4—assigned to Emmett Davis, assignee of Martha J. Parsell, it being 1/12 in value of the whole tract—containing 43 acres.

Lot No.5—assigned in two parcels or sections, it being 1/12 in value of the whole tract, to H. N. Davis—containing 43 acres and 47 square rods.

“The tract of 38 acres and 16 square rods, shown on the plat, we find in dispute as to title and therefore make no partition or allotment of it.

-:Addenda:-

Your Commissioners, while on the land, were informed by the parties that where the name “David C. Davis” appears in the Court’s order, that it should be S. D. Davis, it being a mistake made in preparing the case. Therefore we use the name S. D. Davis in the assignment of Lot No. 2.”

 

From Minnie Davis Parsell’s articles, “Our family had some very dear friends who lived near us. They were the Samuel Davis family. The mother, Elizabeth, became ill and died in 1882 at the age of 50. She had a lingering illness and before she died she could not speak or raise her hands. The family had twins who were about nine years old when their mother died…When the twins were about 14 years old , Edward became sick with typhoid fever and lived only a short while….The father, Samuel Caddell Davis, married again, I do not know when. They called her “Aunt Polly”…Sammy Davis had four children who settled in Wythe County. One was Edna Doan who married Samuel Cassell of Wythe county and lived on a farm on the Fairview Road. They had three children…Then there was Jerome Bonie who married Lou Halsey of Wythe county. They live on a farm in the Fairview neighborhood. They also had three children. Samuel C. Davis married Josie Halsey of the Cove section and settled in the head of Crockett’s Cove. They had a large family. Josie died before her children were grown. Sam married Miss Effie Smith. They had two sons. Another daughter, Permelia Ann, married my brother, W. T. (Billy) Davis. They moved to Wythe County and raised ten children.”
