Jackie R,
Sorry, we have the wrong relative. My 2nd great grandmother was Catharine Louise Reddinger Geyer. Her father was Michael Reddinger of New Baltimore, Somerset, Pennsylvania, Buried in Saint Johns The Baptist Cemetery. Name on the headstone is Michael Reddinger. I have picture if you need.

RE: Eli and Enos Davis
Hi Jackie,

Thank you for the information you sent. I appreciate it, and it is all very interesting. If you wish to send me anything or contact me through email, you can do so at wlkernan@outlook.com.

I am curious about your thoughts about Eli Davis's death date. Do you think it is about 1888 or 1861?

Eli and Enos Davis
Hi Jackie,

Thank you for the information about Eli and Enos Davis. Indeed, the number of Davis families have created confusion as to who is who. Additionally, there are several mysteries in our Davis family. I was aware of some of the information you provided, though not all. Thank you for sharing.

I put Eli's birth as Ohio because he claims this at times. It does make sense that he would think that, as he lived there when he was young. I have also seen his place of birth as Pennsylvania. He claims this on his Oregon Land Donation Claim. He claims on this he was born in Fayette Co., Pennsylvania. I have changed his birth location because what you say does make more sense to me. I also changed his death date, as I do not think it is correct. Several databases put his death date as 1888. Although difficult to see in the photo, I am told the headstone placed on his grave many years later states this as well. However, he is not found on census records after 1860 or tax lists either. There is a estate record for Eli Davis of Washington County for 1861. I found this in Oregon Historical Records Index.

As for Enos, the Enos I linked to is often asserted to be Eli's father. I have not been able to find anything that actually proves it myself. Many claim that the Enos I linked to lived in Portage, Ohio. Do you have any further details about our Enos and any information that he could not be the Enos I linked to? I have removed the link that I had for Enos, as he may not actually be his father. I added the link for his mother.

If you do not mind me asking, how do you connect to the Davis family? One of my Great Grandmother was a Davis: Eli Davis > Enos Davis > William Davis > Maxine Davis (my great grandmother). Are you closely related to me?

The Davis family has been one I have some difficulty tracking down solid information on. I appreciate you contacting me and sharing information.
