UPDATED 10/27/2012 - children updated.

UPDATE 11/30/2012 - His name indeed was Davis instead of David. I have posted for years his name was David, so this is probably proliferated in trees. After speaking with Ron Wood, a cousin, he confirmed that it was indeed Davis. My apologies for this.

Ron Wood also told me that the current property owners have let cattle destroy the beautiful rock wall and has knocked Tom's stone over.
