Belinda Jane Daniel1

b. 7 August 1852, d. 29 December 1915
Birth*7 August 1852Belinda Jane Daniel was probably born on 7 August 1852 in Harlem Springs, Carroll County, Ohio. Her obituary reported her year of birth as 1872, which appears to us to be a simple error for 1852, which would then agree with her age at death as reported in her obituary. Her gravestone and her Find a Grave memorial reported her year of birth as 1853, which might also be correct.1,2
Marriage*28 August 1871She married Samuel P. Phillips on 28 August 1871 in Marion, Carroll County, Ohio.1,3,2
Death*29 December 1915She died on 29 December 1915 at her home near Alanthus Grove, Gentry County, Missouri, at age 631,2

Alexander L. Davasher1

b. 31 January 1811, d. 4 August 1895
Birth*31 January 1811Alexander L. Davasher was born on 31 January 1811 in Amherst, Amherst County, Virginia.1
Name-SpellingsA variation of the spelling of the DAVASHER surname found in our research was Devasher.1
Marriage*1834He married Catherine B. Lewis about 1834.2,1
(Son) Land Records12 February 1837Alexander was likely the son of the unnamed Devasher who was identified as an adjacent neighbor to the 212 acres of land on Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, sold by Obadiah Britt Sr. on 12 February 1837 to his son John W. Britt.3
(Neighbor) Land Records20 February 1837The Devasher family was also identified as an adjacent neighbor to the 120 acres of land on Barren County, Kentucky, sold by Obadiah Britt Sr. on 20 February 1837 to his daughter Martha Wheeler.4
(Surety) Marriage6 February 1840A marriage bond was issued to Elisha Carver and Alexander Davasher on 6 February 1840 obligating them to the sum of £50 on the condition of the intended marriage shortly to be solemnized between the above bound Elisha Carver and Louisa Harrison. Robert Harrison, Louisa's father, had prepared a written statement for the County Clerk, dated 3 January 1840, confirming his approval for the marriage and explaining that he was unable to make the trip to town himself. He requested that his written document, which was witnessed by Alexander Davasher and Andrew Woodcock, be accepted by the Clerk, and that the marriage be permitted to take place. The marriage, we believe, was solemnized the same day the marriage bond was issued.5,6
(Witness to Deed) Land Records20 November 1841Alexander L. Devasher signed his name as a witness to a deed whereby Charlotte Carver sold, and relinquished all of her right, title and dower interest in, a certain tract of land on the waters of Barren County, Kentucky, that had been owned by her deceased husband, William Carver, to her brother-in-law, Elisha Carver, who was the Administrator of her husband's estate. Our transcription of the deed follows:

This indenture made and entered into this 20th November 1841 between Charlotte Carver of the County of Barren and State of Kentucky of the one part and Elisha Carver of the County and State aforesaid of the other part. Witnesseth that in and for the consideration of $150, the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged, I have on this day bargained and sold and by these presents do bargain, sell and relinquish all of my right, title and dower interest in a certain tract of land on the waters of Peters Creek owned by William Carver, my husband, to the said Elisha Carver to have and to hold, to the said Elisha Carver during my life, and I bind myself to warrant and defend the title to the said land against the claim or claims of all persons or person whatever. In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal the day and date above written.

The signature of Charlotte Carver was sealed with her X mark and witnessed by Alexander L. Devasher, who signed his name, and by Barnett Young, who signed with his X mark.7
(Neighbor) Land Records30 December 1843Alexander L. Devasher was identified as a neighbor whose land bounded the tract of land on Barren County, Kentucky, sold on 30 December 1843 by Robert and Susan Woodcock to John H. Page. Our transcription of the deed follows:

This indenture made and entered into this 30th day of December 1843 between Robert Woodcock and Susan Woodcock, his wife, of the County of Barren and State of Kentucky of the one part and John H. Page of the County of Allen and State aforesaid of the other part, Witnesseth that in and for the consideration of money heretofore received and $1.00 in hand paid, the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged, we have bargained and sold and by these presents do bargain, sell and convey to the said John H. Page, all of our right, title and interest whatsoever to a certain tract of land on Peters Creek whereon James D. Carver now lives, it being the survey that William Carver owned in his life time, and bounded by the lands of John Lewis, Benjamin Littrell, Alexander L. Devasher and George W. Page, and the Creek. To have and to hold to the said Page and his heirs forever, and we bind ourselves, our heirs and executors to warrant and defend the title to the said land against the claim of all and every person or persons whatever. In testimony whereof we have hereunto set our hands and seals the day and date above written.

The signatures of both Robert Woodcock and Susan Woodcock were sealed with their marks, and the deed was recorded in Barren County, Kentucky on 21 March 1844.8
(1st Neighbor) Court Action10 February 1846Alexander L. Devasher, a neighbor of Elisha Carver, deceased, was deposed as a witness in a lawsuit filed by Elisha's eldest daughter, Emily Jane, and her husband, Martin Wood.

Case# 1472 was filed on 10 February 1846 in the Circuit Court at Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky, whereby Martin Wood and Emily Jane his wife, who had been married on 13 September 1845 by Henry Lee in Barren County, stated that Emily Jane was the daughter and one of the heirs of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that said Carver was possessed of a tract of land lying in Barren County on the waters of Peters Creek containing 280 acres, and that Carver at the time of his death had legal title to the land, and that he died intestate.

Elisha Carver left a widow, Louisa Carver, and the following children: Lucy Carver, since intermarried with James Carver, Elizabeth Carver, Marthy Ann Carver, James L. Carver, John Carver, Mary T. Carver, and Sarah F. Carver, who with Emily Jane (Carver) Wood, were his only children and legal representatives. The six last named, except Emily, being infants under 21 years of age.

Martin and Emily stated that the land was rapidly deteriorating in value, and would in a few years be seriously and irreparably damaged by exhausting the arable land, and cutting and destroying the timber.

They stated that the land could not be advantageously divided as the share of each of the heirs would be less than $100, and that it would be to the advantage of all to sell the land and divide the proceeds.

An amendment to the above bill stated that James Jameson, Sheriff of Barren County, was appointed by the Barron County court to administer the estate of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that H. P. Curd, Deputy Sheriff for Jameson, acted as Administrator. The Plaintiffs asked that Curd be made a Defendant to the suit, and made to state the amount of the estate that had come into his hands.

In another amendment dated 21 March 1846, the Complainants stated that they understood that Charlotte Carver or her children, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, had some claim, or pretended claim, on the estate of Elisha Carver, deceased. For the purpose of contesting all things in this suit, they asked the court to make them and John G. Rogers, who had been appointed Guardian of Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, defendants to their suit and any other bills therein, and that they answer.

Charlotte Carver’s response was filed on 26 June 1846, stating that Elisha Carver’s estate was indebted to her children, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, in the amount of $38 each, for a total of $76. Mr. Curd, representing Charlotte, explained the indebtedness. He stated that Charlotte was the Administratrix of her deceased husband, William Carver's, estate, and that Elisha Carver was her security. Elisha became uneasy, and by way of making him safe, she sold to him her dower interest in the tract of land on which her husband lived and died, for and in consideration of his assuming to pay to Susan (Carver) Woodcock, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver the sum of $38 each being the amount of their respective interests in the estate of William Carver, their father. Elisha Carver thereafter paid Susan Woodcock her $38, but never paid Joel Y. or Catherine their parts. Curd stated that Charlotte claimed nothing for herself out of the estate of Elisha Carver, just what he owed her children.

H. P. Curd's testimony was filed on 21 March 1845, in which he admitted that Elisha Carver departed his life intestate and that by an order of the court he, Curd, as deputy for James Jameson, Sheriff, was qualified to administer the estate, which he did. He sold the personal property, settled the debts, and had in his possession $59.55 belonging to the estate. He testified that Charlotte Carver or her children, Joel Y. and Catherine, were claiming a debt of said estate amounting to $76., which she was alleging was the amount of the balance of the price agreed to be paid by Elisha for the tract of land. Curd claimed to know nothing of his own knowledge of the justness of the claim, and stated that if the claim was justly due and owing that so much of said tract of land be ordered and decreed sold as would pay the balance of $76, first deducting the amount he had in his possession, and allowing him his reasonable costs in defending the suit, including an attorney’s fee.

Testimony by attorney John G. Rogers, representing James Carver and Lucy Carver his wife, was filed on 15 June 1846. They admitted that Emily Wood was a daughter of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that he died intestate, that the heirs and legal representatives listed in the suit were correct, and that Lucy was one of the heirs and a child of Elisha Carver, deceased.

They denied that it would be to their interest to have the said land sold and the proceeds divided. They thought it would be better, and desired, that the land should be divided between the heirs, and that their portions be allotted to them even if the rest were to be sold.

The testimony of John G. Rogers, then testifying on his own behalf, was filed on 24 June 1846. He stated he was the Guardian of Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, the children of Charlotte Carver, and essentially made the same statements to the court that Charlotte had made. That Charlotte Carver was the wife of William Carver, and that her children were Susan Woodcock, Joel Y., and Catherine Carver. In addition, he told of the arrangement between Charlotte and Elisha Carver regarding her selling Elisha her dower interest in the land, that Elisha had paid Susan, and doubtless would have paid Joel Y. and Catherine if he had lived. He said Elisha died a short time thereafter.

Four deeds were submitted to the court as evidence in the court case:

John and Elizabeth Carver his wife, deed dated August 1828, sold to Elisha Carver for $118, one tract of land containing 75 acres on Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, it being part of the tract conveyed by Benjamin W. Clark and his wife unto John and William Carver.

Jesse Bewley and Mary his wife, deed dated 2 August 1831, sold to Elisha Carver for $100, one tract of land on Peters Creek in Barren County, Kentucky, being the tract of land whereon Carver then lived, and the appurtenances thereon.

Ann D. Shirley of the Borough of Norfolk, State of Virginia, by George M. Pryer, her attorney-in-fact, deed dated 17 August 1833, sold to Elisha Carver for $100, 200 acres of land situated on Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, it being part of a 1,333 1/3-acre survey patented to the heirs of Robert Tompkins, deceased, by patent dated 1 March 1800.


Charlotte Carver, deed dated 20 November 1841, sold to Elisha Carver for $150, and relinquished all her right of dower, her interest in a certain tract of land on Peters Creek owned by her husband William Carver, to have and to hold during her life.

Alexander L. Devasher was deposed on 17 September 1846 and asked about the current condition of Elisha Carver’s land which was believed to be occupied at the time by James Carver, one of the defendants in the case. In response to questions, Devasher stated he lived about two miles from James Carver, who he thought lived on the land upon which Elisha Carver lived and died. He said there were two or three different surveys, but it was all the same tract, and he thought James Carver had lived on the land for about three years.

Devasher was asked if he knew of James Carver, the defendant, having cut a great deal of salable timber off the land and sold it, and if Devasher had or had not bought timber from James Carver which came off the land. His response was that Carver had cut a right smart amount, such as board timber, rail timber, etc., but didn’t know much about the property lines and didn’t know whether they came off Elisha Carver’s land or not. He didn’t know of any that had been sold, except what he had heard. He said he had bought some rails from him, but didn’t know whether they came off that land or not.

Asked whether James Carver owned any other land in that neighborhood off of which he could have gotten the board and rail timber etc. he had mentioned, Devasher said James Carver didn’t own any other land except his interest in Elisha Carver’s tract of land.

Asked whether he knew if that land had been much injured and was not worth near as much since James Carver first went upon it to live, Devasher responded that he knew the place had gone to rack, and was not in as good repair as when Elisha Carver died.

Asked whether he knew or did not know that the land was not so valuable now for timber as when James Carver went on it, Devasher stated that if all the timber that had been cut was on the land, it would not be so valuable, but he didn’t know if all the timber was from that land. He didn’t know where the property line was.

Asked if he knew or did not know that James Carver had taken down a house and hauled it to the woods and there permitted the logs to rot, Devasher said they hauled a house out, it was said for Tom Williams to live in, but he didn’t know who the head manager was or anything about it. The logs, he reconned, were lying there yet, and he didn’t know anything about them. He had not seen them since.

Asked if he had not recently contracted with James Carver for a parcel of rails which were either on the land or to be made from the land, Devasher said he and Carver had been talking about trading for some rails, which he reconned were on the land, but they had not traded yet.

Another neighbor, Benjamin Littrell, was also deposed on 17 September 1846. He was asked if he knew or did not know of James Carver, one of the defendants in the case, having cut a great deal of valuable timber off of the land on which he was then living and upon which Elisha Carver died. He responded that there had been a right smart cut there, but he didn’t know that he cut it all. He had heard it said that he cut it, but he never saw him at it. He didn’t know that there was a great deal of valuable timber. There was some board timber, and some for plank, and some for hogsheads, cut off.

Asked if he knew or did not know that the place was much less valuable now than when James Carver went upon it, Littrell responded that he would not give as much for it as it was right smartly out of repair.

Asked how much he would say, or if he knew, to what extent the place had been injured, he said he hardly knew but at a rough guess would suppose, taking everything into consideration, that it had been injured something like $100.

Asked if he would please state, if he knew, in what way James Carver had been living on the land. Had he paid rent for it or not? Littrell responded that he couldn’t tell. He understood that Carver was to pay rent the first year, but how they had managed since he didn’t know.

Asked if he had bought timber from James Carver, the defendant, which grew upon the land, or knew of him selling to any other person, Littrell said he had never bought any from him himself, but understood that he had sold some plank and hogshead timber, which was said to have come off the land.

Asked if he knew if Carver, the defendant, had ever paid any rent for the said land, he said no. I don’t know that he ever has.

Note: No legal resolution, judgment or disposition of the suit was found in the court's case documents, although several deeds have been found in the records of Barren County, Kentucky that indicate that some actions to benefit Elisha's minor children were ordered by the Circuit Court, and some other deeds were found regarding various sales of pieces of his property by his heirs.9,10
