"William Davisson, retired farmer; P.O. South Charleston; one of the respected pioneers who are still living in Madison Township, is the man whose name heads this sketch.
He is so well-known throughout this vicinity that his name is familiar to all, and his life has been of that energetic sort that was characteristic of the first settlers who have contributed the best years of their lives to the development of this country.
The subject of this sketch was the eldest in the family, and was born in Warren Co., Ohio, Sept.15, 1809, and was reared a farmer.
He was married March 8, 1832, to Emmerine Adams, daughter of Eli and Elizabeth (Beaks) Adams, he a native of Maryland, and she of Virginia. Mrs. Davisson was born in Greene Co., Ohio, May 12, 1813; and three children are the fruits of this union, viz., James C., Sarah E. and Eli A., all of whom are living.
Mr. Davisson, although retired from active farm life, is yet in partnership with his son in the stock business, the latter having charge of the farm. Politically, a "dyed-in-the-wool" Republican, he was a firm upholder of the rebellion, and, for forty years, he and his wife have been members of the M. E. Church, and every public measure found in him a hearty supporter. He is one of the oldest settlers living today in his township, and is honest and upright in all his affairs, and is trusted and respected by all who know him."
