Descendants of Michael McDearman
Generation No. 1
1. MICHAEL1 MCDEARMAN was born Abt. 1719, and died 1765 in Prince Edward Co, Va. He married KATHERINE LNU. She was born Abt. 1719, and died in Prince Edward Co, Va.
Notes for MICHAEL MCDEARMAN:
Records show Michael McDearmondroe married to Katherine Last Name Unknown,
with a son Brian.
The early land deeds in the American Colonies usually described the land as
"bounded" by streams, swamps, and adjacent land owners; and by corners marked by
a specific oak, cypress, dogwood, or other kind of tree; and sometimes by a
stake or rock. In Virginia Act of 1748, governing "processing" of lands and
their boundaries and corners, was in force when Prince Edward County was
organized in 1753 - 1754. The law provided that "the bounds of every person's
land shall be processioned or gone 'round every four years, and the landmarks
renewed". The first processioning was done between June 1 and September 1,
1751. A second deed for four hundred acres acquired by John Davidson, on file
in Prince Edward County, probably was a duplicate or confirmation of the 1742
deed and related to this system of "processing". Anyhow, the Parish was divided
into precincts; and two or more (usually three) "intelligent, honest,
freeholders" were to procession the land every four years; and after the third
time the land lines would be considered correct and permanent. William Davidson
and neighbors Robert Atkins, Michael McDearmon, John Clark, John Owens, and
others who also witnessed Davidson's Wills, invoices, and Marriages were among
the first processioners from Bush River and Mountain Creek to Sandy Creek.
THE MICHAEL AND DUDLEY McDEARMON FAMILIES OF VIRGINIA
The name of the McDearmon families were variously spelled in wills, marriages,
censuses, and other records in Prince Edward County, Virginia, during the 1700's,
McDearmondroe, McDearmonroe, McDearmond, McDearmanroe, McDearman, and
Two Scotch-Irish settlements, both under the leadership of John Caldwell, were
made in "Southside" Virginia, one of Cub Creek in Brunswick County, now
Charlotte; the other on Buffalo River in Amelia, now Prince Edward, about 1735.
The Scotch-Irish generally moved in companies and made their homes in a
settlement, for he threefold purpose of mutual protection against the rigors of
the wilderness, of maintaining social contacts, and convenience of religious
The first Scotch-Irish name to appear in the Amelia County Court Orders is that
of Michael McDearmond (as spelled). He appeared as witness at the April, 1737,
Court. Two months later he made oath that he had not received any allowance
provided by lay for bringing persons into the colony, and the Court ordered the
testimony certified, evidently to the Council of the State.
The March 1754 Court directed the sheriff to summon twenty-four "of the most
capable freeholders" of Prince Edward to serve as a grand jury at the May Court.
The first grand jury included MICHAEL McDEARMON and JAMES McMACKLIN.
An act of 1748 provided that " the bounds of every person's land shall be
processioned or gone "round every four years", and the landmarks renewed.
County courts divided each parish into precincts, and appointed for each
precinct two or more "intelligent, honest freeholders" to procession each
person's land, the persons present at the processioning, the lands which were
not processioned, and the reasons for not processing them. The church wardens
were required to give notice at church, at least three days in advance, of the
precincts in which the lands were to be processioned and the names of the
processioners. Three processionings (at four year intervals) fixed the
boundaries permanently, unless disputed whence the court jurors and surveyors
were needed to settle disputes. Such was the orderly procedure of establishing
The first processioning in Prince Edward County was ordered September 12, 1759o
to be done between October 10 and March 31, 1760. In the precinct in the
fork of Sandy River, form the Sandy River Church Road to Griffin's Road, the
processioners were MICHAEL McDEARMON, Thomas Clark, John Clark, and John Owen.
One of the families in that precinct was that of JOSHUA DAVIDSON, who had bought
200 acres on Little Sandy Creek from John Owen in 1755.
In 1760, the Church vestry, its duty to care for the needy, paid Michael
McDearmon two pounds, three shillings for caring for a man with a case of
Michael McDearmondro (as spelled) made his Will, January 30, 1765. He named his
wife, Katherine; daughter Judith, sons Dudley, Brian, and James. He appointed
his good friends Richard Woodson, Richard Burks, and Thomas Owen his Executors.
The Will was witnessed by his neighbors John Clarke, Alexander Womack, and James
Rutledge Junior. The Will was presented to the Court, and probated May, 1765,
by Thomas Owen. The Will read as follows:

Michael and Katherine's children:
Of daughter Judith, we know nothing but the Will's remarks.
Both Brian (Bryan) and James served in the Revolutionary War. James died in
Service. Brian died in 1829 in Prince Edward County.
Dudley probably was the oldest son. In 1785, he and his family were "nine white
souls"; and Bryant's family was eight white souls. Neither, apparently, left a
The records of Dudley McDearmonroe (McDearmon) Family are:
In 1762 Dudley McDearmon was appointed Constable by the Prince Edward Court. In
1766 he was one of several patrollers who were deputized to inspect passes of
Negro slaves, and visit slave quarters to see that there were no clandestine
meetings to plot insurrections. The pay was twenty pounds of tobacco per day!
Dudley Mcdearmonroe (as spelled) when he signed the appraisement of Joshua
Davidson's Estate in 1771, was one of the four men who made the Inventory of his
personal property. The document was filed in WILL BOOK 1, August 19, soon after
Joshua Davidson Junior obtained a marriage license July 13, 1786, and married
Mary McDearmon, daughter of Dudley Mcdearmon September 26.
George Davidson, younger brother of Joshua, married "Creasy" (Lucretia) M
cDearmon, daughter of Dudley McDearmon "who consents, February 9, 1790. These
two Davidson brothers were sons of Joshua Davidson Senior and his wife Sarah,
who named them in her WILL in 1808. (Geo., 7 Lucretia, my line!)
Sarah McDearmon, daughter of Dudley McDearmon, married Alexander Womack December
27, 1798. (Probably Alex., Junior).
This accounts for three of Dudley's nine white souls enumerated in 1785. Some
of the other McDearmons recorded in Prince Edward County may have been Dudley's
Dudley's wife may have been the daughter of James McMacklin who, in 1754, served
on the jury with Michael McDearmon. Lucretia's second son, Bracket Davidson,
named one of his sons Milton McMacklin Davidson in 1830.

He married SYLVANIE 1776 in Prince Edwards Co., Virginia. She was born 1757 in Prince Edward Co., Va.
Notes for BRYAN MCDEARMON, (ROE):
Also recorded as McDearmon at times
Bryan (or Bryant) McDearmonroe was the second son of Michael and Katherine McDearmonroe
(d.1765) of Amelia county(1). Born around 1732, he fought in the French and Indian War under Col.
Byrd, for which he claimed a land bounty in May 1780(2). His older brother James McDearmonroe was a
casualty of the Revolution(3).
In the 1763 Amelia county tithables list Bryant McDearmonroe is located in the upper portion of Nottoway parish(4). Following his father's death in 1765, Bryan MacDearman of Prince Edward purchased 644 acres in Amelia county from Lawrence Brown, adjoining Truehart, Richard Forrest and Isham Vaughan(5). In 1767 Bryan, now of Amelia, sold a portion of this land to satisfy his debt to John Fisher of Chesterfield. In 1773 Bryant McDearmanroe "of Prince Edward" and John Fisher "merchant of Osbornes, Chesterfield" sold 50 acres of this land for 30 pounds(6).
By patent of 1 March 1781, Bryan McDearmonroe acquired 300 acres on both sides of Rough
Creek in western Prince Edward county, adjoining the land of Hinge, Lovel, Arnold Co(7). The
Land Tax Books for 1782 through 1795 show Bryan's holdings limited to these 300 acres(8). Bryan
deeded 200 of these acres to his son Richard McDearmonroe ("of Nottoway") in 1796. The same
year he bought forty acres from William Paris and sold 50 acres to John Wilson(9).
The Personal Property Tax Rolls indicate that Bryan McDearmonroe owned no slaves, and that his
younger sons were living with him until 1800 (Drury) and 1806 (Joseph)(10). He had 2-3 horses
during the period 1797 until 1809 when he became "levy free."
Bryan McDearmon died after 23 April 1812, when he conveyed to his son James McDearmon Sr(11) "one certain tract Â… lying on both sides of Rough Creek Â…containing by estimation one hundred acresÂ….(12)" This was the residue of the tract Bryan had purchased in 1781. James McDearmon Sr sold this land to his brother Richard in 1814, binding himself to record the deed. However he died in 1816 and a survey of the property showed the tract to contain 219 acres, rather than the 100 Bryan had estimated in his deed to his son in 1812. This discrepancy led to a suit brought by Richard McDearmon against his brothers and sisters who sought to be reimbursed for their father's oversight. The suit was settled 11 September 1830, when the commissioners awarded the 219 acres to James McDearmon, heir of Richard McDearmon, but required payment to Bryan's heirs for the overage(13). The dispute led to an estrangement among Bryan's children.
He and his wife Sylvany(14) had eight children; I am not certain of their order of birth:
(1) Michael McDearmon married (bond) Sally Ford February 26, 1787 in Amelia county.
(2) Bryan McDearmon, Jr removed from Virginia by 1818.
(3) Richard McDearmon (1766-Oct. 31, 1829)(15). He is the founder of our line. Richard McDearmon wed Letitia Ford on March 14, 1789 in Amelia County according to the minister's return of the Rev. John Finney (Methodist)(16). Letitia McDearmon was born on December 31, 1768, and died January 30, 1851 in Appomattox Co.(17)

4. ELIZABETH LUCRETIA CREASEY3 MCDEARMAN (DUDLEY2, MICHAEL1) was born January 1, 1769 in Prince Edward Co, Va, and died January 1, 1861 in Polk Co. Mo. She married GEORGE WASHINGTON DAVISON February 9, 1790 in Prince Edwards, Virginia. He was born 1762 in Prince Edward Co, Va, and died June 14, 1838 in Maury Co, Tn.
Notes for ELIZABETH LUCRETIA CREASEY MCDEARMAN:
George Davidson married "Creasey" McDearmon, daughter of Dudley McDearmon,
February 9, 1790. She was born in Prince Edward County, Virginia, in the latter
half of 1768 or the first half of 1769. (She was 81 years old in the 1850
census; so she was about 21 when she married George Davidson; and 70 when he
died in 1838.) John Brackett (Sarah's brother) was Surety.
We do not know exactly when George and Lucretia moved their family from Virginia
to Tennessee. Three of their children, and perhaps four or more, were born in
Virginia; but their last child, Susan, was born in Maury County, Tennessee, in
1816. The family must have been in Maury County, however, in September, 1814,
when two sons, Joshua and Bracket, volunteered for six months service in the War
of 1812. Bracket, the younger, was 17--nearing his 18th birthday (November 17).
Bracket was wounded "on the evening of December 23, 1814, being engaged with the
enemy at or near a place called New Orleans."
The County records of land deeds show that their father, George Davidson, bought
100 acres May 20, 1816, from Samuel Polk for $200. The land was on Flat Creek,
a tributary to Duck Creek, in northeastern Maury County.
Samuel Polk's son, James Knox Polk, became the 11th President of the United
States, serving one term (1845-1849). The Polks had lived in Mecklenburg
County, North Carolina, and were neighbors (related by marriage) to the Davidson
families of that county and Iredell. Tradition is that the Davidsons of North
Carolina and Prince Edward County, Virginia, were closely related; but exactly
how is not known.
George Davidson died in 1838, in Maury County, Tennessee. He must have been
buried near his home but there is no stone extant. Lucretia was 69 or 70 when
George died. Their sons, Joshua and Bracket, had moved to Missouri.
Page 343 of November, 1838, Court reads: On motion and it appearing to the
satisfaction of the Court that George Davidson, late of Maury County is dead and
that he died in said County of Maury intestate leaving effects in said County of
Maury to be administered. It is therefore ordered by the Court that letters of
administration on the estate of said deceased issue to Henry W. Derryberry
Robert A. Glenn who executed bond in the sum of four thousand dollars with
William Swain and David Fogliman their securities who were selected by the Court
as sufficient security and thereupon said Henry W. Derryberry and Robert A.
Glenn were duly qualified as administrators of said deceased and received
letters of administration.
Page 345 reads: Ordered by the Court that Wiley Brown, John Lee Hosea Bateman
be appointed commissioners to lay off one years provisions for Lucretia
Davidson, widow of George Davidson deceased make report to the next term of
Page 351 reads: H.W. Derryberry one of the administrators of George Davidson

George Davidson dec'd returned an account of sale of a Negro girl Solo under an
order of the Circuit Court which was received by the Court and ordered to be

George and Lucretia issue:
1) Mary A. born about 1791 married Thomas Brockman, living in Polk County,
Missouri, in 1843.
2) Joshua born July 11, 1793 - died October 13, 1850 according to his headstone
in an old cemetery about one mile south of Geo. Washington Carver monument in
Newton County, Missouri. He married Elizabeth Glover November 25, 1819, in
Maury County, Tennessee. He moved his family to Washington Township, Newton
County, Missouri, before son Stephen was born in 1833. Ten other children,
including son, George, and daughters Mary, Sarah, and Nancy.
3) Bracket born November 17, 1796 - died September 29, 1863 was born in V
irginia, and married Delilah Hardison August 3, 1817, Maury County, Tennessee.
Issue - 14 children, including Joshua (1835-1908). Moved to Polk County,
Missouri, around 1838 where he died and was buried in Atterbury Cemetery, Dallas
4) Sally born ca. 1798 - died before 1841 married George Davidson in Maury
County, Tennessee, about 1815. One issue, Miles Davidson, born about 1816
according to Census of Polk County, Missouri, 1850, where grandmother Lucretia,
81, was living with him, a wife, and one child.
5) Nancy married Peter Lawrence. Both deceased in 1843 or before. Issue Lucy
and Hannah, minors in 1843.
6) Susan born ca. 1816, Tenn - ??? married a Johnson man, lived in Kentucky when
their daughter Lucretia was born (1835); in Tennessee when daughter Mary was
born 1837; and Missouri when last four children were born (1848-1846).
7) Miles was an orphan in 1841, entitled to his mother's share of the George
Davidson estate. Miles was Lucretia and George Davidson's grandson (son of
their daughter Sally Davidson and her husband who was a George Davidson). On
March 11, 1846, Lucretia gave a Bill of Sale of personal property (recorded in
Book Am, page 438, in Newton County, Missouri, Courthouse) which reads: In
consideration of the natural and affection which I have toward my grandson Milas
(sic) Davidson, I give all my goods, chattles, money, and effects of whatever
nature-one yoke oxen, one wagon, 2 feather beds, all the furniture household
and kitchen. It was signed X her mark. She was 77 years old.
In 1850, the Census shows that Lucretia was age 81, living in Polk County
Missouri, with Miles Davidson, age 34; his wife Sarah, age 22; and son George
W., age 2.
Miles had bought 40 acres in section 31, township 34, range 21, in Polk County,
Missouri, from Durette Barclay for $50 on June 28, 1834. Durette's wife was
Lucretia Davison, daughter of Delilah and Bracket Davidson who lived near Miles'
new land purchase. His aunt, Mary A. (Davidson) Brockman, also lived in Eastern
Polk County. That cemetery was bull-dozed out when a new highway was
constructed many years later. My brother, Gus, and I talked to the present
owner who showed me some of the broken stones.
The 1820 Census of Maury County gave George and Lucretia's ages as over 45,
which meant born before 1775. She was 51.
The 1830 Census of Maury County lists George and Lucretia in age group 60-69,
indicating their births between 1761 and 1770.
On November 26, 1834, George Davidson had bought 70 acres on Flat Creek for $140
from William K. Hill. (Hill's original grant No. 452). This tract adjoined the
Polk place on the South.
George sold 220 acres on Flat Creek September 12, 1835, to Joseph Powers for
$800 and signed his mark. Next, he sold 90 acres to William Williford on Little
Flat Creek, October 14, 1835.
Lucretia was sixty-nine years of age when her husband, George Davidson, died in
Maury County, Tennessee. Their sons, Joshua and Bracket, had moved their
families to Missouri - Joshua to Newton County about 1833 and Bracket to Polk
County in 1837.
Lucretia had moved to Newton County, Missouri, to be with (or near) her eldest
son, Joshua. He was given the Power of Attorney by and for George's heirs on
May 24, 1841; June 14, 1841; and June 1, 1843.
In 1841, Joshua Davidson, son of George Davidson who had died in 1838, was given
Power of Attorney to settle the estate of George Davidson, deceased. The
following documents were executed-
"To Joshua Davidson, Power of Attorney, from: I, Bracket Davidson of the County
of Polk and State of Missouri do make, constitute, and appoint Joshua Davidson
of Newton County and State aforesaid my true and lawful attorney for me and in
my name and for my use to ask, demand, and sue for cover and receive all sum or
sums of money debts in any wise coming to me from the estate of my father,
George Davidson, deceased of the State of Tennessee and County of Maury,
etc.-in witness whereof I have set my hand and seal this 14th day of June A.D.
(Recorded Maury County, p 157, Vol 1, Book Y, August 4, 1841)
"To Joshua Davidson, Power of Attorney from Lucretia Davidson widow of George
Davidson, deceased formerly of Maury County, Tennessee, Mary Davidson and Susan
Johnson, heirs and daughters of said George Davidson, deceased and Miles
Davidson, son of heirs of Sally Davidson, deceased, who was also a daughter of
George Davidson, deceased, all of the County of Newton, State of Missouri."
(signed) Lucretia X Davison
Mary X Davison
Susan X Johnson
Miles X Davison
On the 24th day of May, 1841, personally appeared before me, William Sexton,
Clerk of the County Court of Newton County, Lecresia Davison, Mary Davison,
Susan Johnson, and Miles Davison, who are known to me to be the persons who
signed and sealed the foregoing instrument.
(All spelling as in the record, p 158, Vol 1, Book y, reg)
The above and other instruments indicate that Bracket and his father's people
changed the spelling from Davidson to Davison and must have made that decision
in the early 1830's while still in Tennessee.

Sixteen years, five months, and nine days after May 15, 1809, the 200 acres on
Little Sandy Creek where Joshua Davidson (sic) and his wife, Sarah, and their
nine children had lived, was sold at Public Auction-November 24, 1825! (That
Indenture spelled Sarah's and Joshua's name DAVISON five times. This probably
is the document which caused Bracket Davidson-Davison to drop the second 'd'
from the family name, as he did in 1830 while he still lived in Maury County,
Tennessee. Bracket, born November 17, 1796, in Prince Edward County, Virginia,
was a grandson of Joshua Senior and Sarah Brackett Davison; and the second son
of George and Lucretia McDearmon Davidson.)
Guardian to daughters of his sister Nancy (Lucy and Hannah).
BRACKET DAVIDSON-DAVISON AND HIS FAMILY (1796-1863)
Brackett Davidson (as spelled in his grandmother, Sarah's 1808 Will) was born in
Prince Edward County, Virginia, November 17, 1796. He was the second son of
George Davidson and Lucretia McDearmon, both of whom were born in Prince Edward
County. Bracket's parents moved from Virginia to Maury (pronounced Murry)
County, Tennessee, sometime after his grandmother died in 1809. Maury County
had been formed in 1807 (The final settlement of Sarah Brackett Davidson's Will,
in 1825, spelled the family name Davison, and may have been the reason Bracket
dropped the second d.)
Bracket, and his older brother Joshua (1793-1850), served in the War of 1812
at the age of 15-16.
Brackett was also one of the largest slave-owners on Polk/Callas Co in 1840 census.
Pension records in the National Archives Building, Washington, D.C., show that
Bracket, nearing his 18th birthday, volunteered September 27, 1814, in Maury
County for a term of six months. He was assigned to Captain James McMahon's
Company (also refereed to at various times as Captain Samuel Crawford's Company)
of Mounted Gunmen in the service of the United States. His company belonged to
the First Regiment, commanded by Colonel Dyer. The record reads:
"On the evening of December 23, 1814, being engaged in a battle with the enemy
at or near a place called New Orleans" Bracket "received a ball in his left
hand". He was honorably discharged at Nashville, Tennessee, on April 27, 1815
having been declared "three-fourths disabled from obtaining his subsistence by
manual labor", signed by David C. Kerr, Surgeon of the U.S. Hospital. Bracket,
therefore received a small pension for the rest of his life.
The Battle of New Orleans was one of the greatest American victories against the
British. Unfortunately, it was fought after the peace treaty had been signed in
England, but before General Andrew Jackson and the British attackers got the
The British had burned Washington, D.C., August 14, 1814; and the British
vessels and troops sailed southward into the Gulf of Mexico for attacks along
the southern coast of the U.S. General Jackson was the commander of the
Tennessee, Louisiana, and Mississippi Territory forces. In late August he asked
Tennessee Governor Blount to send the Brigade of Tennessee Mounted Militiamen,
without delay. Bracket Davidson had been in the service little more than a week
when he, among 2, 000 men assembled in Fayetteville under Brigadier General John
Coffee who, like Bracket, was a native of Prince Edward County, Virginia. At
dawn October 5th, they began the long ride to Camp Gaines, 70 miles north of
Mobile. The brigade traveled the four hundred seventy miles in eighteen days.
General Jackson then sent Coffee and his mounted riflemen westward to the Mouth
of Sandy Creek, north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The British, however, were
outfitting a fleet of fifty vessels at Negril Bay, Jamaica, for the attack on
New Orleans. So Jackson had to order Coffee to make a forced march from Baton
Rouge to New Orleans-one hundred fifty miles-in five days. They arrived
December 20. Coffee remarked "One Tennessean can run down ten sailors and
wornout Europeans thru mud, water, and brush!"
The British army on the night of December 23rd were ready to attack, and did. A
powerful thrust by Coffee's men sent the British reeling backward; and that was
the engagement in which Bracket Davidson "received a ball in his left hand."
(See Elbert L. Watson's TENNESSEE AT THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS written on the
150th anniversary, 1965.)
Bracket, his older brother, Joshua, and Nathaniel Wollard must have recounted to
their children many times-their long hard marches in that campaign of Tennessee
militiamen. Of course, it was not the first long trip those three had made.
The Davidson's had moved overland about eight hundred miles from Virginia to
Maury County, and Nathaniel Wollard had "walked eight hundred miles" from
Beaufort County, North Carolina, to Maury-only a year or so before the boys
volunteered as mounted gunmen. The three returned with their company by Way of
Natchez Trace, the old Indian and pioneers' road to Nashville, Tennessee, where
they were discharged in April 1815.
James Hardison, a veteran of the Revolutionary War, also moved about eight
hundred miles overland, from Martin County, North Carolina, and settled on Flat
Creek, north of Duck Creek, in Maury County. He purchased six hundred forty
acres in 1812. Bracket Davidson's father bought one hundred acres near
Hardison's home in 1816. Nathaniel Wollard married James Hardison's daughter,
Margaret, in 1816.
On August 3, 1817, Jacob Scott, Justice of the Peace, Franklin County, Te
nnessee, married Bracket Davidson and Delila Hardison, daughter of James
Hardison. She was born July 22, 1802, in Martin County, North Carolina, and was
fifteen years of age when she and Bracket were married, but it was not a
shotgun wedding! Their first child was born May 11, 1818. Delila's mother was
Mary Robason (Robeson) who was fifteen or sixteen when she married James
Hardison in 1789. Mary and James had seven children when Mary died in 1804, at
which time Delila was only two, and Margaret was thirteen.
Bracket and Delila would live a colorful life. Tennessee had become the
sixteenth state when it was admitted to the Union June 1, 1796--the year Bracket
was born in Virginia. Bracket lived during the administrations of fifteen
Presidents-from John Adams to Abraham Lincoln. Delila survived five
more-Andrew Johnson, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield,
and Chester Abram Garfield.
To the union of Delila Hardison and Bracket Davidson, fourteen children were
born-the first twelve in Maury County, Tennessee. The last two in Polk County,
Missouri. Their children were:
1) Thomas McDearmon, born May 16, 1818, perhaps named after Delila's oldest
brother and her mother's family. Thomas married Elizabeth Barclay in Polk
County March 22, 1841. He was ambushed and killed during the Civil War period.
2) Dr. George, born February 22, 1820, named for Bracket's father. George
married (1st) Rebecca Wollard (1819-1865); and (2nd) her widowed sister,
Elizabeth Wollard Edmisson, in 1866. George, doctor and farmer, died January 4,
1887, buried in Dallas County, Missouri.
3) Fanny Manerva, b Oct 22, 1821, d Oct 28, 1840, never married.
4) Lucretia, b July 28, 1823, m Durrett Barclay Apr 15, 1841, d Feb 25, 1904.
Lucretia was named for her father's mother.
5) James Hardison, b Jul 28, 1825, m Lucy Barclay Mar 24, 1844. He was named
for his grandfather. He was ambushed (killed) during the Civil War in Dallas
6) Milton McMacklin, b Sep 9, 1826, m Rosa Glover July 24, 1845, d Jun 12,
1912. He probably was named for a McMacklin family, neighbors of his maternal
grandmother's family who may also have been her parent's.
7) Margaret Catherine, b Jul 13, 1828, m Joe Stuart May 7, 1845, d Mar 29,
1910. Margaret was probably named for her mother's sister Margaret Hardison
Wollard, and Catharine McDearmon who was her great-grandmother.
8) Calvin Bracket, b Mar 1, 1830, m (1st) Matilda Jane Glover May 10, 1849, and
(2nd) Mrs. Rachael Steinbaugh Bridges Sep 6, 1864, d Dec 6, 1903. He died in
Rockwall County, Texas.
9) William H. (ardison?), b Jan 5, 1832, m Sarah Jane Davis Feb 3, 1853, d Aug
21, 1855. He probably was named for Delila's oldest brother who died in 1830.
10) Sarah Elizabeth, b Feb 6, 1834, m John R. Glover Feb 3, 1853, d Dec 6,
1887. She was probably named for Bracket's mother, Sarah Davidson.
11) Joshua, b Oct 13, 1835, m (1st) Henrietta Bennett c 1855, and (2nd) Mary
Bennett (Henrietta's sister) c 1856-7, d Apr 10, 1908. Joshua must have been
named for Bracket's brother and their father who died in 1771.
12) Mary Jane, b Jul 30, 1837, m William Kennedy Atteberry, d May 20, 1911.
She is buried at Charity, Dallas County, Missouri. Bracket's sister and
Delila's mother were both named Mary.
13) John Humphrey, b Oct 30, 1843, m (1st) Susan Virginia Ragsdale Dec 19,
1861, and (2nd) Susan E. Turner, d Mar 10, 1922. Susan Ragsdale died Apr 29,
1898. John Humphrey was named for Delila's brother, Humphrey, who was two years
younger than she and possibly for John who was Sarah and Joshua's first son.
(It is suspected that an infant died in 1841.)
14) Charles Isum Joel, b Nov, 1846, d Sep 9, 1848, age under two. The name
Joel came from Delila's brother, Joel, who was two years younger than she and
Charles from her brother who was seven years older than she.
It appears that Bracket and Delila chose their children's names from their
parent and grandparent families, somehow omitting two of Bracket's great-aunts,
Ann and Phoebe Davidson.
Just what kind of man was Bracket Davison? He apparently was a respected,
law-abiding, honest business man of the times in Tennessee. He was a staunch
member of the Christian Church throughout his life in both Tennessee and
Missouri. "All his family were deeply religious Christians," his grandson,
Dolan Bracket Davison, said.
Bracket's business was farming, begun after his discharge from the War of 1812
in 1815. He assembled about three hundred acres, adjoining his father's land in
the Flat Creek area, north of Duck River, in eastern Maury County, Tennessee.
The deed records now in Columbia show the purchases he made from 1821 and the
land he sold in 1838 before he moved his family to Polk County, Missouri, that
Bracket's father, George Davidson, bought one hundred acres on Flat Creek (a
tributary to Duck River in eastern Maury County) for $200 on May 20, 1816, paid
to Samuel Polk who received a grant of five thousand acres following the
Revolutionary War. Samuel was from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, a
surveyor and farmer who was a friend and neighbor of the Davidson's in Iredale
County, North Carolina. (Samuel was the father of President James K. Polk whose
term was in 1845-1849.)
Bracket bought fifty acres from Polk's grant, and one hundred ten acres that
adjoined Polk's south line, in 1821. Bracket also bough seventy-eight acres on
Flat Creek, adjoining the Polk grant, from his brother, Joshua Davidson, June 5,
1821, for $350. The one hundred ten acres became Bracket's home, and adjoined
his father's land. (Bracket's father-in-law, James Hardison, had bought six
hundred forty acres on Flat Creek December 12, 1812, soon after he arrived in
Maury County from Martin County, North Carolina.)
Bracket sold his Flat Creek lands in 1838, two hundred twenty-eight and one-half
acres, to Alfred Young for $1,300. He had also sold seventy acres for $140 to
Solomon Bunch on January 9, 1836.
All of Bracket's wealth and business activities, however, were not in real
estate. He owned, bought, and sold slaves-men, women, and children. He took
thirty or more slaves with him to Missouri in 1838. The chattel records in the
Columbia Courthouse Maury County, Tennessee, included some interesting
transactions in human ownership.
He paid Samuel Blackeley $450 for one negro girl named "Fanny" January 27, 1823.
In another transaction, October 11, 1828, Samuel Dunlap sold Bracket "a negro
girl slave named Rachael, of dark complexion, about eleven or twelve years old,
said negro to be sound and healthy." The price was $250.
Bracket sold a negro woman, Amy, seventeen or eighteen years old, with her three
months old boy "Edmund" to John C. Brooke for $600 December 5, 1825.
In more exacting legal language the Bill of Sale for one negro man read:
"Know all men by these present, that I, John McMeen of the County of Maury,
State of Tennessee, have this day bargained and sold unto Bracket Davison (sic)
of the County and State aforesaid, one negro man named Balaam or Bulum, about
twenty-nine years of age for the sum of six hundred and twenty-five dollars in
hand, for which negro I warrant to be sound in body and mind and slave for life
for which I defend from all persons forever. December 29, 1834, my hand and
seal." (signed John McMeen.)
Balaam was, indeed, a fine specimen of male slave. He was "stood", seven negro
women having children from him in one week. He was not only a good stud, but a
fine negro, good worker.
Negro slavery had begun in America in 1619 when a Dutch ship stopped to buy
provisions from the eleven little villages (Jamestown and others) along the
James River, Virginia. They sold twenty negros to the colonists who needed them
to work in the tobacco fields. Tobacco had become the most valuable American
crop, to be exported to England, where its habits of use spread and demand grew
1619 was also the year that the London Company sent ninety young women over to
the new colony. The women were not sold, but all did marry very soon, the
husbands required to pay expenses of the journey. Several other shiploads of
women were sent over. Homes were then built and men no longer thought of
breaking up the colony. So amid the developments of tobacco (which became a
religious, moral issue to many churchmen during the next three hundred years)
and the introduction of slavery (which would tea the Americas apart during the
period one hundred fifty to two hundred years hence), the basic stabilizing
influence of women secured the family foothold which would make America the
greatest country of the world by the mid-nineteen hundreds.
There were also white slaves, criminals sent from the English prisons, and also,
"redemtioners" who agreed to work for a number of years to pay their passage to
the new land. The redemptioners were given a sum of money, good clothes, and,
sometimes a horse when they had worked out their time. Some became good
citizens, some lazy and bad, "living like the Indians."
Missouri was admitted to the Union August 10, 1821, the twenty-fourth state and
the second one west of the Mississippi River. Polk County was created March 13,
1835, and named for President James K. Polk. on January 29, 1841, the eastern
half of Polk County was formed into a separate county, its boundaries described,
and named Niangua. That name was difficult to spell and write, however, and the
name was changed to Dallas County in honor of George M. Dallas who had just been
elected Vice-President to serve with Polk from March 4, 1845, to March 3, 1849.
Mark Reynolds was one of the first five settlers in Polk County, Missouri. He
sold Bracket Davison land on which he had settled and improved, lying on Buffalo
Head Prairienorthwest of the Blue Mounds-in 1833; but Bracket did not move there from Maury County, Tennessee, until 1838. Two of Bracket's sons, Dr. George and Milton, also made land entries in the same township; the Robert and William Barclay had land in Township 33, Range 21. These heads of families lived in the same community. Three of Bracket's
children (Thomas, Lucretia, and James) married Barclay children-Elizabeth,
Durrett, and Lucy, respectively in March 1841, April, 1841, and March, 1844.
When the early settlers (including Emanual Edmisson, Moses G. Bennett, Nathaniel
Wollard, and Bracket Davison) arrived in Polk County territory, they found a
vast wilderness and Osage Indian tribes. In place of roads, there were Indian
trails and paths. The wild game animals were numerous, deer, ducks, geese,
quail, rabbits, and squirrels; also bobcat, coyotes, raccoon, grey wolf,
'possums, and red fox. A few buffalo, elk and bears were soon killed or driven
In 1851, Bracket sold the Polk County farm and moved to his new farm about one
and one-half miles south of Charity, Dallas County, Missouri, where he lived
until his death September 29, 1863. (His descendants say he owned ten slaves
when he died.)
In 1889 History of Missouri noted that the Bracket Davidson, Emanuel Edmisson,
Moses G. Bennett, and Nathaniel Wollard families were in Polk County before
present-day Dallas County was formed from it in 1841. Bracket first settled in
eastern present-day Polk County; but the other families located in the upper
Niangua River watershed which includes Greasy Creek, all in present-day Dallas
County. The relative ages of these forefathers and wives are indicated by the
years of their births:
Nathaniel Wollard, born 1792; wife Margaret Hardison, 1791
Emanuel Edmisson, born 1794; wife Nancy Johnson, about 1795
Bracket Davison, born 1796; wife Delila Hardison, 1802
Moses G. Bennett, born 1813; wife Sarah Wollard, 1817
These families, related by marriage, move from Tennessee to Missouri in 1838 or
1839. Missouri was the last of the eleven southern states to secede from the Union in
1861. Missouri Unionists stopped secession in conventions on February 28 and
March 9, 1861. The legislature condemned secession; but under the protection
of Confederate troops, secessionist members of the legislature adopted a
resolution of secession at Neosho October 31, 1861, and the bitter controversy
within the state and within the families was cast. The family of Bracket and Delila Davison was torn apart. The 1860 Census of Dallas County recorded sixty-four year old Bracket living by himself. Delila was living with her daughter, Mary Jane Attebury.
When Verne E. Davison, in 1957, called these census appearances to the attention
of Dolan Davison, one of Bracket's grandsons, his reply was, "Yes, I know but we
don't discuss it much. Our families are strict Christians and it's difficult to
understand the troubles of the Civil War days, but Bracket and Delila were
together again before he died." Two of Bracket and Delila's sons were ambushed and killed in a local skirmish one night during the War. They are buried in the family cemetery but without markers to designate their names. Evidently they were James Hardison Davidson
(b January 28, 1825) and Thomas McDearmon Davidson (b May 16, 1818).
John Humphrey Davison (1843-1922), Bracket's thirteenth child, served, in the
Union Army during the Civil War. Bracket's land was valued in the 1860 Census at $5,00 and his personal property as $14,700, which, no doubt, included his slaves. President Lincoln's
Emancipation Proclamation freed all slaves January 1, 1863, a near final blow to
Bracket, who still owned ten slaves. He was said to have owned seventy or
eighty slaves in Tennessee and taken thirty or more to Missouri. Nine months after the Emancipation Proclamation, September 29, 1863, Bracket Davison died at his home in Dallas County, Missouri. "He was buried at the Attebury Shed Christian Church, which was organized principally by himself, Charley Davis, and Wash Atteberry, and was a strong organization until the Civil War. He was very loyal to his church until he died." according to his grandchildren's mimeographed "History of Bracket Davidson."
In 1869 Delila Hardison Davison received letters from her brother Humphrey (two
years younger than she) and Joel (two years older than she). Verne E. Davison
has the letters.
Letters from Humphrey and Joel Hardison to Mrs. Delily Davidson, Spring Grove,
Mo., handwritten on one sheet of paper, Humphrey's on one side and Joel's on the

The pension afforded Bracket for his injury, suffered in the Battle of New
Orleans December 24, 1814, required several examinations, affidavits, inquiries,
etc. The Surgeon of the U.S. Hospital, David C. Kerr, declared Bracket ;was
"three-fourths disabled from obtaining his subsistence from manual labor." He
apparently was placed on pension June 26, 1822, seven and one-half years after
he was wounded. The pension was $6 per month until 1840 when it was "reduced to
$5.33 per month."

Following her death, the Postmaster advised the Federal Pension Office that
"Delila Davison is dead". He didn't know the exact date, but one of her
children thought it "was in early February." (January 30, 1884, actually.)
Eleven direct ancestors of Verne Elbert Davison moved from North Carolina and
Virginia to Maury County, Tennessee; and settled in nearby communities north and
south of Duck Creek, on Flat Creek, Little Flat Creek, and Cedar Creek in the
eastern part of the county near Marshall County, in the period between 1810 and
1842. They were:
James Hardison (1759-1842)
Margaret Hardison (1791-1840) first daughter of James. She married Nathaniel
Wollard in 1816

John Wollard, George Davison, and James Hardison died in Maury County, Te
nnessee, in 1833, 1838, and 1842 respectively. The eight other ancestors of
Verne E. Davison moved to Missouri in 1837 and 1838--lived, died, and are buried
in Dallas County.
In addition to the eight ancestors who moved from Maury to Dallas County, eight
more inhabitants became direct line ancestors of Verne E. Davison in the period from 1838 to 1893. They were:
Emanual Edmisson (1794-1857), and his first wife.
Nancy Johnson (c 1800-1840), married about 1817
John S. Edmisson (1820-1863), son of Nancy and Emanual. He married Elizabeth
