Oliver Davis was of the third gen. in this country. His grandfather,
Ephraim, emigrated from England about 1730. He served in the French
and Indian wars. When peace was declared the body of troops with which
he was connected was discharged, far away from white settlements, without
food, money, or suitable clothing. Many perished on their journey home.
Ephraim Davis successfully made his way home, though nearly famished,

subsisting for many clays upon bark, nuts, and berries. One day he made
his dinner upon a perch, caught with a pin for a hook, and though eaten un-
dressed, he always declared it was the sweetest morsel he ever tasted. His
son Jonathan was also a soldier, being present at the battle of Bunker Hill.

Elder Thomas Davis rem. to Acworth in 1796, native of Amesbury,
Mass. In 1800 he became interested in the Society of Friends; joined this
society in Weare, in 1803, about forty miles from his home. He was for
many years a constant attendant upon their monthly, quarterly, and yearly
meetings. Nothing would prevent his attendance upon these meetings when
able to ride. During this time, ministering Friends appointed meetings at
his house. Neighbors attending these became convinced of the truth as held
by that Society, and regular meetings were held at his house for several years.
In 1820, a meeting house was built in Unity, and the meetings were after-
wai'ds held there. He was an efficient elder in his Society, a lover of
retirement, an exemplary and useful man. Old people remember his coming

Thomas and Jane d. unm. James was of large stature, as well as large
heart. To distinguisli him from bis cousin of the same name, he was called
"big Jim." The prominent traits of his character were strict integrity,
frankness, great plainness of speech, hospitality, benevolence, and a deep
interest in matters pertaining to the public weal. On account of his single-
ness of purpose, honesty, and sound judgment, although he never held civil
office, he was a welcome counselor in all objects of public moment, and his
character was forcibly expressed by a cotemporary in a neighboring town,
when he made the remark, " Capt. Dickey is a rough diamond." He m.

John, Isaac, and Geokge Duncan, three brothers of the 3d gen. in this
country were natives of Londonderry, sons of William and Naomi (Bell)
Duncan. Their grandfather, George Duncan and the son of George Dun-
can, emigrated from Ireland. John, b. 1752, chopped down the first tree
on his farm in Acworth, 1773, but until his marriage in 1778, spent his
winters in Londonderry. He responded to his country's call when the news
reached Londonderry that the British were marching on Concord, and arrived
at Lexington at sunrise the next morning after the first blood had been shed
for America's freedom. He also, with several other Acworth men, joined
Capt. Bellows' company going through the w^oods to New York State to
assist in intercepting Gen. Burgoyne in his march through New York. In
1780 he was elected with Henry Silsby to attend the convention of the New
Hampshire Grants at Charlestown and Cornish, receiving $900 in currency
for fourteen days' service, $72 being equal to $1 in silver. From that time
for more than fifty years he was prominent in all town business. In matters

requiring tact and politic management, he was put forward. He was the
most efficient in procuring the settlement of Mr. Cooke at a time when
ministerial settlements by the town were becoming unpopular. The charac-
teristic by which he was specially distinguished was shretvdness among neigh-
bors in whom that quality abounded. Of his descendants, ten were in the
war of the rebellion.
