John DAVIS
Nancy THERAMAN
Please Note:  a patrilineal descendant of our subject has been Y-DNA tested, and he is a tight genetic match with descendants of James & Hannah (RAMSEY) DAVIS.  It is likely our subject is one of James's grandsons, but the paper connection is still to be made.  For test results and discussion, please see this page.  If you think you descend from our subject or from James DAVIS, you can support your connection with a Y-DNA test.
Husband:  John DAVIS
Birth:  15 Nov 1810, KY
Death:  17 Mar 1859, Martinsville, Clark Co., IL
Disposition:  buried Martinsville City Cemetery, Martinsville, Clark Co., IL
Occupation:  farmer
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  R-1b1a-2a1a-1b = R-P312

Father said to be:  John DAVIS ( -1829)
Father suggested by Y-DNA test results:  Joseph DAVIS

Wife:  Nancy THURMAN / THURMON / THEROMAN / THERAMAN
Birth:  ca. 1814, KY
Death:  aft. 1870 census

There's no such surname as "Theraman" or "Theroman," so we're probably looking at a mishearing, misspelling, and/or misreading of her surname.  The most likely alternative is THURMAN.

1.  Thomas DAVIS, b. 1835/6
2.  Elizabeth DAVIS, b. 1837/8

born in Martinsville Pct., Clark Co., IL:
3.  Benjamin Franklin DAVIS, b. 17 Nov 1840
4.  Maria DAVIS, b. 1843/4

These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Thomas (b. 1835/6)
1 male 20-29 1810-1820 = John (b. 1810)
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Elizabeth (b. 1837/8)
1 female 20-29 1810-1820 = Nancy (b. ca. 1814)
The only "John Davis" in the two counties is too old to be our subject, so is this John "Davs?" our subject?  The numbers are right.
