Family of Davenport, Martin S and Green, Sarah Elizabeth

Married Husband Davenport, Martin S ( * 1844-12-02 + 1915-07-30 )
Event Date Place Description Sources
Marriage 1866 Jackson, TN    

Note Martin and Sarah are next door neighbors in 1860 TN>Jackson>District 3
Also Sarah is not with parents in 1870 but already married to Martin Davenport AND her first daughter is named Nancy E like her mother.

Home in 1880 District 3, Jackson, Tennessee, USA
Martin Davenport 35 Self (Head)
Sarah E. Davenport 33 Wife
Nancy E. Davenport 14 Daughter
Joseph Davenport 11 Son
Thomas J. Davenport 11 Son
Milas S. Davenport 8 Son
William Davenport 3 Son

As of 1900, Sarah was mother of 7, 5 still living - only George at 17 yrs old still living at home. Since there are no gaps in her children's names, I suspect her 7th child was born after George, prob. about 1886, and died before 1900.

1910: living next door to daughter Nancy Richardson in Davidson County, TN.
