Research Notes

Possible census match?

Year: 1850; Census Place: Baltimore Ward 17, Baltimore, Maryland; Roll: M432_286; Page: 203B; Image: 411
Enock Davis / b. abt. 1833 Maryland / Black / Brickmaker / (presumed) son of Susan & Isaac Davis
Year: 1880; Census Place: Baltimore, Baltimore (Independent City), Maryland; Roll: 498; Page: 24C; Enumeration District: 042
Enoch Davis / b. abt. 1845 Maryland / Black / Oyster Shucker / m. Ellen

Assuming for now the Enoch J. Davis in the Baltimore, Maryland city directory is the same as the Enoch Davis in the 1890 Veterans Schedules in Baltimore. No address is given in the 1890 Veterans Schedules so it's not 100% rock solid the same man. But probably. Hopefully further research will clarify with certainty. Middle initial J. comes from the city directory entries.

There is a Mrs. Mary Davis at 113 E Madison in the 1873 city directory. Possible relative / mother?

Probably his grave, but erroneously listed as United States Colored Troops (USCT), a not uncommon mistake with the 54th & 55th Mass regiments.
