Richard Davis

Nebraska Indian Scout

 Seven Spanish Angels

     Richard Davis served as a Nebraska Indian Scout during the Civil War. It was either there or in Missouri that he met Zacharia Little, brother of Susan Little who later became Richard's wife....
         From the only page I have from the Davis Family Bible it states "Richard Davis was born in Dekalb County Missouri, 1844 and died at Modale, Iowa,  July 4th 1923 at the age of 78 years 6 months and 9 days. for every he was a Civil War Veteran. one to come to the show." I have copied this just as it was written on the page.  I have no idea who wrote this or when.   I do have copies of his Civil War papers, which tell very little.  Susan was a pipe smoker from the pictures I have seen. They are both buried at the Calhoun Cemetery, Harrison County  Iowa.
