John M. Davis married Susannah born in 1777 or 1778. They lived in Abington Virginia in Washington county. While living there they owned a large plantation. This was before the civil war when people were allowed to purchase slaves. John M. Davis owned many slaves.

In 1818, John M. Davis and Susannah migrated by covered wagon to Tennessee. They traveled as far as Popular Creek in Anderson County and because the territory was so thickly populated with Indians they lived there for awhile. They later lived in the Coves, a northwestern part of Oliver Springs Tennessee in Roane County. They later moved to Nemo, in Morgan County Tennessee.

John M. Davis and Susannah had nine children, 6 sons and 3 daughters: Mary "Polly", Anna M., Joseph S, John Lewis, Hugh R., Andrew, Francis E, Thomas H, William Carr
