Family of Davenport, Joseph and Huffines, Elizabeth

Married Husband Davenport, Joseph ( * 1818-12-25 + 1875-06-05 )

In Joseph's first census appearance 1840 lists 1m<5, 1m20-30, 1f<5 and no wife! So William and Mary could have had a different mother. Sloan researcher thinks Rhoda was his first wife.

Home in 1862: Jackson Co, TN (Civil War Tax Valuation)
Home in 1880: District 3, Jackson, Tennessee (Elizabeth, Ward, Lovenia, Simpson)

note Martin and Sampson are names of Joseph's mother's brothers.

Oct 24, 1874 Probate court authorized 1 year support for the widow Elizabeth Davenport and children:
"Report of the Commishioners appointed at the Oct term of the County Court of Jackson County to lay off and set apart one years support to Elisabeth Davenport and her children, widow of Joseph Davenport, which Report is in the following words and figures (to wit): we find nothing on hand but what is exempt but about five or six hundred lbs of tobacco which are given to said widow and children all of which was done on the 24th Oct 1874.
