  • The Davidson Family Genealogy provides good information on Milus Davidson and his wife Ann Sophronia Carpenter. Censuses and family information report Milus born in Tennessee.  He moved to Alabama, and his daughter Malissa Edward Davidson was born in Lawrence County, Alabama in 1846.  Other Davidsons reported to be his siblings were in Franklin County, Alabama, for the 1850 census.  His mother Margaret (Clayton) is reported living in the household of Clayton Davidson.

    "Milus DAVIDSON (Mr.) was born 2 Sep 1821 in Tennessee. He died 17 Jan 1873 in Arkansas County, Arkansas and was buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Ethel, Arkansas County, Arkansas.  Milus married Ann Sophronia CARPENTER on 12 Sep 1844 in Lawrence County, Alabama. Ann was born 1827 in Mississippi. She died after 1880 in Arkansas County, Arkansas and was buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Ethel, Arkansas County, Arkansas."

    Though born in Tennessee, in 1850 we find him in Franklin County, Alabama, as are his mother and sibling, in a separate household nearby.  The 1850 census year has been modified by hand, apparently, to indicate 1851.  The date for this section of the census is 11 January 1851.
