  • Name Harriet DAVIS 
    Born 14 Oct 1828  [1
    • Age 6 on headstone would put birth in about 1831. But "Davis - The Settlers of Salem WV," p. 57, reports birth date as Oct 14 1828.
    Gender Female 
    Died 4 Jun 1837  Doddridge Co, (W)VA Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    Cause: injuries sustained in a tornado 
    • Death date on her weathered headstone could be June 1 or June 4. "Davis - The Settlers of Salem WV," p. 57, reports it as June 4, 1837. This contradicts Hardesty's assertion that the tornado that took down the SDB Church and killed Harriet Davis and her father occurred on June 3, 1833.
