  • Name Barbara Ann DAVISSON 
    Born 13 Aug 1833  [1
    • Marriage record gives birth as Aug 13 1833 in Harrison County, Virginia (now West Virginia). But her death record gives birthplace as Barbour Co, WV, as does "The Davissons," p. 143, which gives birthdate as Aug 13 1832. Since her two closest siblings, both older and younger, were born in Harrison County, that is considered the more likely birthplace for her as well.
