His birthplace was Bedford Co., East Virginia. He was a soldier in the War of 1812 – 1816. We know not what department of the army he served in, but have been credibly informed that he was a brave soldier and received an honorable discharge at the close of the war.
He leaves eight children living. Mrs. Joseph Zickafoose of Buchanan is his oldest daughter. Three of his children live in West Virginia.
His wife, who is 77, told me she did not remember the number of years she had been in church, but that she had been a Methodist nearly all of her life.
The remains of the deceased were interred on Monday in the cemetery at Mt. Latham, 2 miles south of Buchanan.
Jacob and Nancy had nine children:

Jacob's first son William H. Davis and his wife Samantha M. Chase Davis had a son Dr. John Merrill Davis who did much research on the Davis family and got me interested in finding out all I could about the Davis line.
