Tombstone Tuesday – Sophia Ann Carroll Davisson
Sophia Ann Carroll Davisson
At Harlan Cemetery, in Brown Township, Hancock County, Indiana stands the headstone of my great grandmother, Sophia Ann Carroll Davisson (1868-1900). Sophia was the daughter of Philip Carroll (1839-1898) and Mary Hedrick (1834-1878). Sophia married my great grandfather, Charles, son of William Eldon Davisson (1834-1890) and Rebecca Madison (1839-1913), on 2 Jan 1886 in Kennard, Henry County, Indiana. Sophia and Charles were the parents of Viola Ethyl (1887-1970), Alonzo Forest (1889-1969), Nellie Mabel (1891-1932), William Claude (1892-1959), my grandfather, Ernest Clementine (1895-1953), William Howard Davisson (1897-1900) and an unnamed child in January 1900 which resulted in Sophia’s death at the age of 31. Charles remarried in December 1900 to Sarah Jane Coon Gipe and died in 1924.
