Notes: Information on this family can be found in the book "Johnson County, Kentucky: A History of the County, and Genealogy of Its People Up to the Year 1927" by Mitchell Hall. On page 150 of that book it says:

No. 8. N. ELIAS DAVIS - B. 8-15-1804; D. 7-13-1893 M. 2-20-1823 to Elizabeth (Betty) Curtis, B. 10-30-1803, D. of James. (See Fairchild family).
Children -
No. 25. N. Mary (Polly) Davis.
 
No. 26. N. Sarah Davis - born February 20, 1826.
No. 27. N. James McHenry Davis.
No. 28. N. Anna Davis.
No. 29. N. Mahala Davis.
No. 30. N. Susan Davis.
No. 31. N. Lydia Davis.

      Mr. and Mrs. Davis first went to housekeeping on Colvin Branch near Fish Trap Church, where they resided the greater part of their married life. They also lived for a time with their son Davidson near Concord Church, and in their old days moved to Morgan County for a year, after which they broke up housekeeping and lived with their daughter Mary.

      Mr. Davis is said to have visited his people in Virginia on various occasions. but just in what county they lived has never been learned. He was a good, hard-working man, and very industrious. Although he had a quick temper, he was prominent in the family gatherings in the neighborhood, and is said to have been an excellent "Virginia-reeler." Sometimes he would let his disposition of the mind get away with him. On one occasion, when a sheep strayed from his flock and was some trouble to get back, he pushed it over a cliff. However, his temper in no way interfered with the esteem and respect in which he was held by the pioneers of Johnson County. He was given more to loquacity than. the average person but he had not the stamina of Mrs. Davis who had very decided opinions, and when pressed for an answer, there was not any question as to where she stood or felt about any subject.

      Mr. Davis' death was caused from the infirmities of age, combined with lagrippe and a slight stroke of paralysis. He broke down and could never recuperate. He was so determined in his ways and his will-power so strong and set on carrying on in life, that at the time, he refused aid and his family could not get him to bed, with the result that he died two or three days later. He is buried in the family graveyard on the Blanton farm near Fish Trap.

      Mrs. Davis was noted for her excellent memory. She joined the church just one month before she died. She had been visiting her daughter Anna VanHoose and took sick. It was at this time that she expressed her hope of a brighter life, even calling in some of her children to tell them of her hope in Christ. Thinking that she had sufficiently recovered to return home, she undertook to go to her home at Fish Trap. Although eighty-four years old, she made the trip on horseback, but died the same night of that day. It is said that she talked until the last moment of her life.

      The tax list for 1837 of Floyd County shows that Mr. Davis had 100 acres of land on Paint Creek.

On page 154 of that book it says:

      James H. Blanton lived and died on Blanton Branch in Johnson County, Kentucky.

      He was handicapped in early life by lack of any chance. He had to work and provide for himself, and for a time hired out to the Litterals. When he was seventeen years of age, he surveyed and worked on surveying parties for 100 acres of land near the present post office of Elna, Kentucky. He also ran out fifty acres, which was later deeded to his oldest son. He followed farming as an occupation, but also served around the county courts as a juryman and on other official matters until he had acquired a fair knowledge of the local laws. He was a large man, weighing over two hundred pounds, and was never sick to any extent, until his death, caused from the infirmities of age. He was buried at the old graveyard on the Blanton farm.

      Aunt "Polly" Blanton was a member of the United Baptist Church at Fish Trap. In her older years, she fell and broke a hip and could not walk the last three or four years of her life.

      Ben Blanton was killed on Thanksgiving Day, 1906, by a saw-log rolling over him near Kenwood, Kentucky. As a matter of fact all of the Blanton family except S. L., Jim, Mack, and John Elliott have been engaged in the timber business in some form or other mainly ox-team drivers.
