Isaac DAVIS, farmer, came with his parents to Brown township, this County, in 1826, from Butler County, Ohio, where he was born October 17, 1821, his parents coming there from New Jersey, where his ancestry settled at an early day. Mr. Davis remained upon the farm until he was twenty-five years of age, when he returned to Ohio, farming and dealing in real estate. He was married here to Jessie SMALL, January 8, 1846, who died in October 1870. From Ohio he again came to Indiana, and for twelve years lived in Franklin and Shelby counties, when he returned to Montgomery County, settling near Crawfordsville, where, in 1864, he, with a brother, Gen. M. D. Manson, and Col. John Lee, he embarked in the grain trade, where they kept in operation two warehouses, one of which is now Darler's mill. In April, 1861, he joined Co. G, 10 reg. Ind. Inf., with which he remained until his regiment was mustered out. He was sergeant of his company, and the oldest man in it. In 1862 he was elected sheriff of Montgomery County by the democrats, since when he has been a strong republican. He now owns 1260 acres of land lying in Wayne, Union and Ripley townships.
