Martha Selina Davis was probably born in Fayette Co. GA. She and her widowed mother, Dovey, are thought to have come to Chambers Co. AL before 1839.
In 1847 she married William Croft Davis there. Martha was a creditor to the estate of Ezekiel Ratchford in 1847. She received $54.00 and $0.50 interest in payment of a promissory note, and the payment was signed in 1848 as received by her husband, William C. Davis.
In 1850 William C. and Martha were living adjacent to Ratchford's widow, Elizabeth P. (Davis) Ratchford. Martha may have died of heart disease at the age of 45. Several of her children died at a relatively young age with heart problems.
Martha and William gave very specific names to their children, as if they were proud of their ancestry and wished to preserve a memory of it. But I've been unable to decipher a single clue from all those specific names, and not that I haven't tried. The middle names Milton, Beaks, Clark, Lawrence, and Mitchell are all surnames. But I've never been able to find a family connection to any of those surnames. It is an open research problem.
