Nancy Davis married Mark Monroe on Sept. 30, 1814 in Grainger Co., TN. Nancy was born on 7-11-1795 Grainger Co., TN and died 8-30-1854 in Maynardsville, Union Co., TN. Mark was born 8-3-1793 in Grainger Co., TN and died after Nancy on 9-6-1870 in Maynardsville, Union Co., TN.

Her parents are Isaac and Mary Davis, but that is all I have on them.

Their 13 children were:
1. Lea Anderson b. May 13,1815 Grainger Co., TN d. 1887 and m.May 18,1834 to Nancy Atkins in Grainger Co., TN. (I have no record of children).
2. Lucinda b. April 27, 1816 Grainger Co., TN d. Oct. 14, 1871 Union Co., TN and m. Aug 17,1833 to Hiram Baker. (I have no record of children).
3. Calvin b. May 22,1818 Grainger Co., TN d.Feb 7, 1871 Union Co., TN and m. Sep 5,1845 or 1847 (I have conflicting years) Rossannah Colvin in Grainger Co., TN. (I have no record of children).
4. James b. Mar 30, 1820 Grainger Co., TN d. Sep 23, 1936 m. Nov 23, 1841 to Margaret Bryan in Grainger Co., TN. (I have no record of children).
5. Cirenia b. Jan 3, 1822 Grainger Co., TN d.? m.May 5, 1844 to Charles Warwick (or Wyrick)b. 1824. They had nine children 2 of which were from a previous marriage(?) and one of those is my ggggrandfather. Oh what a tangled web we weave.
6. Orleania b Sep 5, 1823-GC TN d. Nov 8, 1849 UC TN maiden
7. Vilania Jane b. Jul 5, 1825 GC d. May 4, 1850 UC m. Oct 20, 1849 to Emanuel Warwick in GC (this could be Wyrick also). (I have no record of children).
8. Isaac John b. Sep 1, 1827 d. Mar 21, 1891 or 1892.
9. Mary Minerva "Nervy" b.Apr 1, 1831 GC d.Mar 21 1891 UC m. Jan 16, 1829 to Alexander LaFayette b. Jan 16, 1829 TN, d.Mar 16, 1881 Maynardville, TN buried in Carr Cemetary. They had four children. This is also a relative of mine. Did I mention that wicked web?!?! It starting to become a circle. I hadn't scrutinized this before now. Nervy is my gggrandmother.
10.Amanda Louisa b. Aug 1, 1833 UC m. Sep 4, 1852 GC John Warwick (could be Wyrick again).
11.William George (twin to Elizabeth)b. Mar 25, 1836 Maynardville, TN d.Oct 2, 1907 Maynardville, TN m.Aug 23 or 28, 1856 to Lucinda Branson(1) and m.Feb 10, 1867 to Adline Atkins(2) in Maynardville, TN. Adline d.d.Aug 3, 1895.

Let me know what discrepencies you find. This is a compilation of records gathered from family members in the 1970's and current research.

Thanks for the reply. Another Monroe/Davis researcher provided me with information from the 1850 Grainger County census which listed the youngest of the 13 children as John F., not John L. My grandmother believes that John F. was her grandfather (father of her father, Isaac Calvin Monroe). If you can add any clarity to this discrepency, I would appreciate it.

I checked by papers and it is listed as John L. It could be a typo. I only have it documented in one spot so that is not hard verification. ...I believe your grandmother. Please let me know if you find anything else.

Anna,

Could you have possibly omitted the last name of Alexander Lafayette, spouse of Mary Minerva "Nervy" Monroe?

Looks like you and I are 5th cousins once removed!

I often omit things. Alexander and Nervy are the right pair. We are related!!!

I would like to know more about you.

My records also indicate that John F. Monroe married a Lucinda Swarrengin Mills in Greene Co., ILL on 9/20/1863 and that she was born in Hardeman Co. Tenn. in 10/1832. Would you happen to know any thing about her or her family? thanks.
