John & Elizabeth B. Boswell

John and Elizabeth B. Boswell were married in Mecklenburg Co., VA, bond dated 13 Feb 1840. Consent was given by John Bigger father of Elizabeth.. J. W. Yates, Jr. was surety.

Elizabeth apparently was widowed with one child by 1850, when she appeared on the Mecklenburg Census in the household of her parents, John and Sally Bigger. "Betsy" was listed age 40. In the household was one female child, Susan Boswell aged 6.

Perhaps it was Susan who married Patrick H. Davis and appears on the 1870 census of Mecklenburg:

Patrick H. Davis 26
Sarah S. Davis 24
William H. Davis 4
Joseph B. Davis 2
Elizabeth B. Boswell 58, lives with daughter
Ann M. McClinchy 40, lives with Mr. Davis.

Possible the later known Joseph B. Davis house, near the Bigger/Boswell/Davis cemetery, was the same as or near the old John Bigger home.
