    Notes 
    • Joseph and Eliza first appear as a separate household in the 1850 census next to his parents. They first acquire their land (125 acres) in 1867 from Wm. Shaffer (Butler Coutny Record of Deeds, Vol. 89, p.221), although they probably had farmed the land on shares since 1850. The farm appears on the 1858 and 1874 Butler County maps. Occupation: Farmer; farm along Muddy Creek in Franklin Twp.

      Joseph and Eliza were parents of 7 children: James Madison Davis, (1851-1922), m. Ellen Shanor (1853-1932); Joseph Edmondson Davis, (1853-1921), m. Harriett Moser (1851-1932); Sarah Jane Davis, (1855-1907), m. Alexander W. McGowan; William Bigler Davis (1857-1922), m. (1) Elizabeth Bach, and (2) Margaret Edna Vensel (1860-1929); Josiah Porter Davis (1862-1891); John Henry Davis (1864-1911), m. Mary Minnie Book (1866-1928); Perry Davis (1866-1883).
