Elijah Lott "Lige" Davisson
Birth: Apr. 12, 1840
South Charleston
Clark County
Ohio, USA
Death: Mar. 29, 1924
Mechanicsburg (Champaign County)
Champaign County
Ohio, USA

Elijah was born his on grandfather's farm in South Charleston. His parents moved when he was small up north to Pleasant township.

During the Civil War Elijah enlisted in Company C, 110th Regiment, Ohio Volunteer infantry, but contracted typhoid fever at the camp, and was so sick he was dismissed. He crawled the last few miles home. Sadly his father contracted it after Elijah arrived home, and for Lemuel the disease was fatal.

It is said Elijah was engaged to marry Amy Neer, but after his convalescence he married her sister Dorothy Jane. He built a home north of his father's, on Davisson Road, and his farm overlapped a little into Champaign and Union counties. The home is now (2013) owned by Roy Estes.

Elijah was leader of Methodist singing schools, an active member of Nation Chapel, and he and Dorothy Jane raised three boys on the farm. They celebrated their 50th anniversary together.

In later years they moved into Mechanicsburg, where their home is still standing.
