Isaac DAVIS, Jr.
Elgiva VAN BIBBER
Husband:  Isaac DAVIS, Jr.
Birth:  1794-1800, Pendleton Co., SC
Death said to be:  1856, Montgomery Co., MO 
Father:  Isaac DAVIS, Sr.
Mother:  Sarah "Sally" CLARK

Isaac is said to have died in 1856, but surely it was 1846 because not only does Elgiva appear without him in the 1850 census, she stopped having children ca. 1843/4.

Wife:  Elgiva / Elgida VAN BIBBER
Birth:  1805/6, MO
Death:  1870-80, Boone Co., MO 
Father:  Maj. Isaac VAN BIBBER, Jr.
Mother:  Elizabeth HAYS granddaughter of Daniel BOONE

Elgiva is a form of Olga/Helva, so "Elgiva" is not a mistake, but "Elgida" and, especially, "Elvira," are.
In the trivia department, the wife of Edmund I, King of Mercia, was named Elgiva.
