      Our family has little information about the life of John Davis. From his gravemarker, we know that he served in the Civil War. We also know from his son Elmer's obituary that he was a Reverend.

      John married Margaret Jane Davis in 1869. Margaret was born on September 15, 1852 in Miller County, Missouri. She was the daughter of William Thompson Davis and Mary Polly Malone. William was John's uncle, which meant that John and his wife were first cousins. It is a bit confusing but not beyond one's understanding.

      John, his wife, and son Elmer, are buried in two plots at the Sallisaw City Cemetery located in Sallisaw, Sequoyah County, Oklahoma.

      On June 30th, of 2006, I was able to visit the grave of my great-great-grandfather John S. Davis with my uncle Darrel Scribner, and his wife Carol. We had the pleasure of spending the day together and traveling to Oklahoma to find John's grave. To our knowledge, no members of our family had ever visited the Sallisaw City Cemetery.

      We photographed both John and his son's gravemarkers. John's grave marker is inscribed:

      John S. Davis
      Co. B
      46 MO. INF.


      Elmer's gravemarker is also inscribed with both of his parents names and their dates of birth and death.

      I encourage anyone who may have further information about this family to contact us. Thank you.
