Samuel Case and Mary (Polly) Davis

Married 21-Jan-1795

Husband:   Samuel Case

Father: Nathaniel Butler Case
Mother: unk.

Served with his father-in-law, Giles Davis, during the War of 1812.

Giles Davis and Samuel Case were neighbors in Nelson Co., KY

According to Preble Co, OH tax records he paid taxes in 1811 & 1816 on S6, T6, R2

Sometime between 1816 (tax) and 1819 (wife remarried) it is presumed he passed away.  A strong indicator is the lawsuit brought against his wife after she married.  It was a suit by her children for the division of property. 

Oddly, there is no record of his death or burial that has been found yet.  This becomes strange when you stop to consider the many entries that followed him since Nelson Co., KY.

Wife:   Mary (Polly) Davis

Father: Unknown Carr
Mother: unk.
Other Spouses: Henry McMillin, Moses Davis, Unk. Carr
Other Children: Samuel Davis Case, Sarah Carr

Since we are focusing on the Davis connection I am using Mary (Polly) Davis.  I really suspect Polly as her original maiden name and the search goes on. 

I have confirmed at least four marriages.  I believe that is all.  All names in order;

Polly ~ Carr ~ Davis ~ Case ~ McMillin

Mary Carr married Moses Davis 8 Nov 1787 in Nelson Co., KY with Samuel Davis standing in surety.  Mary Carr was listed at that time as being a widow.

Marriage records have an entry on 26 Oct 1790 showing Robert Simonton wed to Sarah (K)arr, daughter of Mary Davis, surety David Crable.  Consent for this marriage was granted by the parents, Moses and Mary Davis.

Samuel Case and Mary Davis on 21 Jan 1795.

Preble Co., OH records show Mary Case marrying Henry McMillin on 9 Dec 1819.  This would indicate Samuel died between 1816 (tax) and 1819 (remarriage).
After Mary Davis remarried her children filed a lawsuit for division of property left by Samuel Davis.

In 1825 Samuel D. Case, "born prior to the marriage" brought a seperate suit against her.  His full name being Samuel Davis Case it is assumed he is the son of Moses and Mary Davis yet there are no records found so far to verify this conclusion.
