Emily Rachel Davis
I meant to post this yesterday. My third-great-grandmother Emily Rachel Davis, wife of William Allman, was born in 172 years ago, on 18 April 1840 in Fairmount, Vermilion County, Illinois. Her parents were Azariah Davis and Jane Connor, and I'll have more information on the two of them in future posts.
Emily's mother Jane died in 1842. Her father Azariah Davis married his second wife Hettie Redman on 3 January 1843. In the 1850 US Census, Emily appears in the household under her middle name Rachel, 10 years old.
