Francis Marion "Frank" DAVENPORT III <[email protected]> lives in Vienna, VA.
LINEAGE: Francis M. Jr. (TX-OH) < Francis M. (b. TX) < James Darling (David) (GA-OK) < Smith Glover (GA) < David S. (d.1880 GA). The name "David Slaughter Davenport" is on the marriage record (GA) to Lykestry Scarborough(aka Lakitsey, La Kitt C., Lizzie C.

COMMENTS: The DNA test shows descent from Davis Davenport, but so far there seems to be no certain paper trail before Feb. 1825 for David S. The full names of three of his nine children suggest David S. either knew he was descended or wanted to be thought of as descended from David of Martin. These names are: Smith Glover, James Martin Slaughter, and Frances Virginia, Davenport.

LINEAGE: William Davis Davenport...Martin...Glover...John William...John B...John Evrem...John William... Lorenzo Belt...Kermit Ford...Rodney Belt...Nathanael Alexander

COMMENTS: John B, 1795-1886, was a preacher in Davie County, NC until 1838 when he and two brothers and their families moved to Ga. His family settled in Union Co. Another moved south to Forsyth Co, and the third moved on to what became Cobb. John B's son Jon Evrem was impressed, along with brothers David and Daniel by Gov Joe Brown's agents into the Confederate Army on July 3, 1862. They enlisted at Fort Nelson near Morganton in Fannin County and were placed in Company B of Fain's Regiment, Georgia Infantry.

His daughter Alice was born six days later. While camped at Kingston, Tenn, he deserted at news of his need at home where Lively his wife had birthed a daughter, Martha Alice just six days after he was taken the previous year. He made his way home and wearing a bonnet and dress, worked the fields until two agents captured him, leading him off with the two on horseback and he on foot with hands tied behind his back, between the two. But, rounding an outbuilding he dove under some bushes and escaped. Making his way to a friends, he was freed from his bonds a rifle was procured from John's house. He hid Lively would leave him. This went on until the war ended after that hard winter.

His brother's David and Daniel deserted shortly after John and surrendered to the Federals at the end of the summer. after a while as POWs, they joined the Union Army, Co C, 5th Regiment Tenn Mounted Infantry on Sept 12, 1864 at Cleveland, Tennesse. Their main task was guarding the RR between Chattanooga and Atlanta.
