William C. Davis & Almy Greene Davis Obits

These are the news articles pertaining to William C. Davis and Almy Greene Davis (nee Rathbun) you can order from the Geauga County Public Library. As you can see they are not truly obituaries as advertised prior to ordering.

Almy Greene Rathbun Davis and William C. Davis had at least three children: Eunice Amanda, Phoebe Sephina, and John H. Eunice Amanda married Samuel H Cutler and they adopted NP and Betsey (nee Welch) Townsend’s daughter Elizabeth E. Townsend born in 1848 in Cato, Cayuga County, NY. Betsey died from complications of childbirth. Eunice Amanda and Samuel renamed the baby Mary Alice Cutler. She married Benjamin Walker Ellison in 1862. Alice and Benjamin are my 3rd great-grandparents.

I am trying to figure out if I can determine where Eunice and Samuel were married, as Samuel remains a mystery. He shows up in 1850 in Elbridge, Onondaga County, NY and disappears after summer 1863 in Oakfield, Kent County, Michigan. If I can figure out where William and Almy were circa 1845, we could narrow down where Eunice may have met Samuel.
