Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 19, 1839, USA
Death: Sep. 7, 1915, USA

Same stone as her husband Benjamin Davis.

MRS. CHRISTENA DAVIS, of Fairfield Township, was born at her father's homestead in Fairfield Township, this county, August 19, 1839, a daughter of ROBERT HIGMAN, one of the honored pioneers of the county, and widow of BENJAMIN P. DAVIS, who was one of the well known citizens of Fairfield Township. BENJAMIN P. DAVIS was born in Delaware, removing
from that State to Ohio with his father, SMITH DAVIS, and
in an early day the DAVIS family came to Tippecanoe County, Indiana. BENJAMIN P. DAVIS and CHRISTENA HIGMAN were
married August 19, 1857, and to them were born four
children--ROBERT E., MARTHA (wife of ROBERT L. DAILY),
JOHN and LEWIS. Mr. DAVIS was a shoemaker, which he followed until about a year after his marriage, when he settled on the farm on section 9, Fairfield Township, which
is still occupied by his family. He died September 9, 1879,
respected by all who knew him. Mrs. DAVIS is a lady of
great energy and excellent judgment, and since her
husband's death she has greatly improved her farm which is
a part of her father's estate. Being left a widow with a
young family she has overcome many difficulties, and
attended personally to the improvements of her farm,
and her pleasant home is ample testimony of the success to
which she has attained. She is the owner of a fine farm of 18 acres, on which she makes her home.
