John (possibly Joseph) Davis Family

Posted: 1465232230000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Davis, McGee, McNeal
I am searching for information on Moses Davis (my 3rd Great Grandfather) born in Greene County, Ohio, in 1831, he married Manerva Dennis of Mt. Sterling, Brown, Illinois in March of 1852. Manerva died in October of 1852. He later married Philena McGee (Magee) in Wapello County, Iowa.

I am also looking for his parents and siblings, I believe his father to be John (possibly Joseph) Davis, mother Mary - both being born in Delaware, and siblings Elizabeth born 1820 (married Samuel McNeal in Greene County 1836) 2 additional Sisters (names unknown at this time) Brothers - John, James, Philip born about 1830, and Josiah born about 1832 all believed to be born in Greene County, Ohio. I have found them in Morral, Shelby, Indiana in the 1840 census, and Schuyler and Brown County Illinois in the 1850 Census. Mary was widowed in this census.

I also know from Civil War pension records that they all worked at the Taggart Mill in Schuyler county for several years prior to the War.

I would appreciate any help with this family, I have been stuck on this line for many years. Thanks
