******************************************
Andrew had very obviously received some education in Tennessee prior to
coming to Van Buren County, AR.   There is the possibility, of course,
that he was taught by his mother and/or father, but there were two
schools that had been established in White County before Andrew was
born.  In "The History of White County Tennessee" (1935; reprinted
2002) Rev. Monroe Seals discusses the early frontier schools of the
area.  The first school in White County was Priestly Academy in Sparta,
TN, chartered in 1815 by the General Assembly.  It had been in
operation as early as 1809.  He also discussed the Cumberland
Institute, established in 1810, located 9 miles north of Sparta in the
Cherry Creek Community. Cumberland Institute was a boarding school.

******************************************
Andrew and Mary Davis homsteaded at "Greasy Valley" in the Morganton
area of Van Buren Co., AR.
******************************************
[Article in 05/15/1925 edition of Van Buren County Democrat]  Davis
Township was named in honor of Andrew B. Davis, who came here from
Tennessee in 1848 in company of the late J. D. Martin and Ant and Smith
Bradley.  He died toward the end of the Civil War.  Andrew B. Davis
married Mary Witt.  Three of their four boys survive; W. T. Davis, J.
C. Davis, and A. B. Davis.  [John A. Davis is not acknowledged as a
brother of Billy, Ammon, Clint and Brad Davis although he was
enumerated as a member of Mary's household in the 1870 and 1880
Censuses]

Burial: Hardin Cemetery, Bee Branch, Van Buren Co., AR
Census 1: 1850, ARS5a433817
Census 2: 1860, AR126187057

Notes for MARY J. WITT:
Mary was enumerated in both the 1870 and 1880 census for Van Buren
County with her children following the death of Andrew in 1866.  A
headstone does not appear with Andrew's in the Hardin Cemetery;
however, there is a footstone near Andrew's marker bearing her
initials.  Apparently, the Hardin Cemetery was vandalized a few years
ago and her marker was probably destroyed then.

Mary's sons, Ammon, James C., John A. and Brad (Anselem B.) and his
wife "Permela" (= Parlee) were listed as living in her household in
1880. Ammon's occupation was listed as him being a teacher and James C.
(20) was listed as being a farmer.  By this time, William T. (Billie)
and Newt Collum had both married.
