Isaac Davisson, Jr
Birth: May 9, 1790
Harrison County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Aug. 29, 1851
Clark County
Ohio, USA

Isaac Davisson, about 1810, settled a short distance east of South Charleston. He married Sarah Curl in 1808. His father, Isaac Davisson, Sr., was an early settler of Warren County. Isaac, Jr., and his bride, made their wedding tour on horseback, Mrs. Davisson using a feather-bed for a side-saddle. They passed through Springfield on their way from Todd's Fork, in Warren County, to their new home, near Catawba. At this time, Springfield had but a few houses, and these were in the brush.

After spending the first three years of their married life in Pleasant Township, they located in Madison, as stated. He purchased fifty acres of land, and in time added several hundred acres to his estate. He was of Methodistic stock, as well as his wife, and, in the years that followed their coming to the neighborhood, the early preachers held meetings in their humble cabin, and to the end of his days his devotion to the Master and zeal for the church never waned. His wife still lives, and has passed the ninetieth milestone in the eventful race of life.

They raised a large family of children; twelve of these lived to become married; they were William, Obadiah, Lemuel, Mary, Elizabeth, Nancy, Sarah J., Margaret, Julia Ann, Maria, James G. and Daniel." [History of Clark county, Ohio, W. H. Beers & Co., Chicago, 1881, p 750].

Isaac served as a Private during the War of 1812, in Capt. John Wilson's Company. [Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812, Adjutant General of Ohio, Columbus, 1916, p. 54]
