    Notes 
    • Lemuel Davis, his wife, Margaret and Elisha, their son, were first on the scene of the Wigton massacre.

      The names of Lemuel and Margaret Davis appear frequently in the deed literature of the county in connection with the property dealings of Robert Morris and Stephen Lowery about 1816 (e.g.,Vol. D, p.432, Vol. G, p.64). Lemuel served with his brother, William, in Captain Schaffer's Company, during the War of 1812, in the winter of 1814. In 1843 , Lemuel, Margaret, and their son, Elisha, were important witnesses to the Wigton massacre of 1843 (The Sam Mohawk trial). The only census record occurs in 1820 for Slippery Rock Township. Three children's names appear in various histories: Jane Davis, b. abt. 1812, m. Hamilton Morrow; Lemuel, b. abt. 1814, m. Prudence Elliott; and Elisha, b. abt. 1827, m. Josephine________, and is living in Rockland Twp., Venango County in l850.

      Lemuel Davis and Margaret Elliott moved to Venango County, PA. He was active in the oil business and also had a farm in Rockland. Lemuel's will was dated 13 Jan. 1855 and probated 29 Dec 1856; filed in Register's Docket Book 1, p. 362, #37. He names only his youngest daughter Eliza Margaret as legatee to his land, and personal property to be equally divided among his heirs (unnamed). No probate packet was found by the clerk.
