     Dionitia Tempe Davis was born circa 1824, daughter of Jacob Davis and Rhoda Turner, in Warren County, North Carolina.3
     She was also known as Dionisia.2

     Dionitia Tempe Davis and Howell Richard Moss obtained a marriage bond on 20 June 1840 in Warren County, North Carolina.4

     In the November 1859 Term of Court at Warren County, as a result of a petition by the heirs of Jacob Davis, his slaves were ordered to be divided into six shares between Mrs. Rhoda Davis; John H. Fleming and wife Nancy P; Thaddeus B. Rowland and wife Mary T; James E. Pattillo and wife Winifred; Howell R. Moss and wife Dionisia; and Mrs. Sophronia Moss. This proves Rebecca Johnson was already deceased with Sophronia her only heir. It also proves Mr. Moss was also deceased by Nov 1859.

     On 2 Dec 1859, the division was filed with the court.5

     Dionitia Tempe Moss died before 1870 because she was not enumerated in the 1870 census.

     Find A Grave does not have a burial listing for her as of 7 Jan 2019.6

     Minor Merritt Davis was born on 29 March 1873, son of Hardy Bryant Davis and Mandaville Emily Highsmith, in Tennessee.4,5,6

     Minor, 27, married Pattie Bullock Turner, 28, daughter of James Nelson Turner and Martha Woodward Bullock, on 17 October 1900 in Sumner County, Tennessee.1,7

     Minor registered for the draft in 1918 at Graves County, Kentucky. He was 45 years of age, married and a Merchant with the Singer Sewing Machine Company who was employed in Mayfield, Kentucky where he lived. No physical description is on this registration card.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     With no end in sight for the end of World War I, a third and final registration law was instituted which now included all men between the ages of 18 and 45 which added younger men that the previous registrations laws and an older group of men born between 1873 and 1900, meaning he had to register.8

     On 17 July 1925, Pattie Turner Davis' obituary states she was survived by her husband, one daughter Miss Katie Davis, of the city; brothers James Turner and Erskine Turner of Gallatin, Tennessee; and sisters Mrs. L. B. Ligon of Clarksville, Tennessee and Mrs. Alice Foster of Black Mountain, North Carolina. The body was shipped to Gallatin where funeral services were held.9

     Prior to his death, he was a widowed sewing machine salesman.5

     Minor Merritt Davis died on 7 September 1931 at age 58 in Montgomery County, Tennessee,5 and was buried in Little Hope Cemetery, Clarksville, Montgomery County, Tennessee.10

     Percy Everett Davis was born on 17 July 1893, son of James E. Davis and Margaret Turner, in Monmouth, Polk County, Oregon.3,4
     He also is reported to have been born in July 1894 in Oregon.1

     Percy registered for the draft on 28 May 1917 at Linn County, Oregon. He was 23 years of age, a Farmer employed by J. O. Brown, single and had been a corporal in Oregon College. He reports being the support of his father and is described as being of medium height, medium weight with blue eyes and dark brown hair.

     Due to a need for men to serve during World War I, the United States instituted a draft. Obviously, not everyone who was registered for the draft was drafted or served in the military.

     The first registration was for men between the ages of 21 and 31 (men born between 5 Jun 1886 and 5 Jun 1896), meaning he had to register.4

     On 15 September 1918, Percy sailed on the Pocahontas from Hoboken, New Jersey, as a Private in the U. S. Army Detachment Agriculturist, Camp Meigs. His service no. was 3422862.5

     Percy was a Railroad S. P. at the time of his marriage.6

     Percy Everett Davis, 31, married Irene M. McDaniel on 29 June 1925 in Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington.6

     Percy registered for the draft on 25 April 1942. He was 48 years of age and employed by the Preston School of Industry in Waterman, Amador County, California. He is 5' 9 1/2" in height, 195 pounds with blue eyes, gray hair and a light complexion. He had an appendectomy scar.

     The Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, also known as the Burke–Wadsworth Act, enacted September 16, 1940, was the first peacetime conscription in United States history. The Selective Service Act required that men who had reached their 21st birthday but had not yet reached their 36th birthday register with local draft boards. Later, when the U.S. entered World War II after Pearl Harbor, all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 45th birthday were made subject to military service, and all men from their 18th birthday until the day before their 65th birthday were required to register.3

     There was another Percy E. (Erskine) Davis, who was born 4 May 1890 and died 28 Nov 1957 in Oregon. He married Bertha Ellis in Kansas where he was enumerated in 1930. This man should not be confused as I originally did with Percy E. (Everett) Davis.

Two Pleasant Dawsons in Amherst County, Virginia

There were two Pleasant Dawsons, both of whom married in Amherst County. The one who married Sarah Turner was enumerated in Albemarle County, Virginia in the 1810 census. The fact that Sarah Dawson was named in her father's will in 1805 provides additional proof as does their marriage bond. Furthermore, security was provided for the marriage of Sarah Turner to Pleasant Dawson by John Sorrell Dawson, his brother.

     The other Pleasant Dawson was the man who married Sarah Christian, daughter of Elizabeth Christian, in 1791.3,2,4
     Pleasant Dawson was born circa 1765. He was 45 years or older in the 1810 census so 1765 is the latest reasonable birth date.5

     He performed his Military Service between 1776 and 1782 at Nelson County, Virginia, as a 2nd Lt. in the Revolutionary War.

     Pleasant and William Dawson are named as revolutionary soldiers in a chapter entitled "Revolutionary Soldiers from Amherst County Comprising then the Territory of the Present County of Nelson."

     This shouldn't be taken too seriously because soldiers often disappeared without official leave to take care of sick children or wives, returninig to duty as soon as possible.6

     Pleasant and Sarah Turner obtained a marriage bond on 6 February 1786 in Amherst County, Virginia, with John Sorrell Dawson as security and John Taliaferro and Peter Lyon as witnesses.7,2

     On 20 June 1798, Pleasant Dawson & wife Sally, of Albemarle County, sold to Martin Dawson for £200, three tracts of land: a patent to Thos Matthews 1 Aug 1772 of 64 acres adjoining Josias Wood; patent to Pleasant Dawson 16 Mar 1789, of 100 acres, adjoining Jas & TGeresah Turner, Zach. Roberets, back of north side Rockfish; and patent to Danl Duncan, 23 Aug 1797, 161 acres on south side Marrowbone Mounting adjoining Martin Dawson, Matt Phillips, Jno Sanders, Jno Matthews at Amherst County, Virginia.8

     On 25 December 1807, Nelson County was created from Amherst County with its government forming the following year.

     On 26 August 1812, Pleasant Dawson and wife, Sally, conveyed to Hugh White and again on 22 Mar 1813, one-eighth share in 512 acres on Hickory Creek, for £150. Boundaries: Henry Turner; Martin Dawson; Jno. Dawson; Zach Roberts. Tract of Jno. Dawson, dec'd as heirs. Witnesses: Jno. L; Benj and Nelson Dawson at Nelson County, Virginia.9

     In 1815, he is listed as a landowner with property on Harrises Creek, as well as "for William B. Damron" at Amherst County, Virginia.10
