***************************
Virgil was 37 years old when he stated the information for the Draft Registration in Daviess County, Kentucky in July of 1863. His surname was spelled Daviess, but the second "s" was later dropped from his name after he moved to Kansas. Sometimes it is even found spelled Davis. But they pronounced it Daviess and were proud of the family name of the area. Some researchers don't realize that the elongated cursive "s" in a word that looks like an "f" is actually their way of making two s's in those days.
(Passed away after being enumerated in the 1885 Kansas State Census of Spring Creek. No sign of them in the 1895.)
