Isaac Newton Davis
I'm afraid I have very little information. My husband's paternal great grandmother is Margaret Ann Davis Wier. The family bible shows that Margaret was born 06/10/1857 in Green County, MO, and married Thomas in 1874 in Burnet County, TX. The Wier family moved to the Dexter/Hagerman area of Chaves County, NM, around 1906, after a six-year stay in Oklahoma Indian Territory. We understand that the Davis family raised Margaret Ann and her brother, Newt (Isaac Newton Davis), but their biological parents were unknown. That could explain the dead end to your research. However, the McDermott genealogy shows Isaac N. Davis (age 2 years) living with the John W. and Lucinna Davis family in White County, TN, in 1850. Perhaps Margaret was the only one who was "adopted" since there is a 9-year age difference. Margaret's death certificate lists her father as John Davis, but she does not appear in the household on the 1860 census.

Our only "contact" with Philotha C. Davis (Find A Grave Memorial #52215482) is that she is buried next to Thomas and Margaret in the Wier Family Plot in Hagerman, NM. The headstone states that she is the wife of I. N. Davis. She appears on the 1900 US Census in Sundance, Crook County, Wyoming, which shows she was born in Wisconsin in December 1855, and had been married to Isaac A. [sic] Davis for 3 years (estimated marriage year 1897). At that time she was the mother of five children (four living), though I assume they were probably born of a previous marriage. See 88161083 Ed McDermott shows the 1910 census @ on which she also appears. If you haven't already, you might like to read the message posted on my contributor's page from Ed McDermott on 9/17/2010. Isaac's obituary states that he was survived by his sister, Margaret Wier. Ed believes that Philotha is a second wife and most likely died while visiting Margaret in New Mexico.
