[Transcriber’s note:  no additions or corrections have been made with the exception of the title on the first line, W.V. Chandler et al to I.W. Davenport.  Any questions or notes are within [brackets] as shown here.  Several words were difficult to read.  If I was unsure about a word being correct I added [?] behind the word.]

[Transcriber’s additional information about individuals:

William Vance Chandler was the only child of Pinckney Lafayette Chandler and Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler.  After his father died in 1868, his mother later remarried Ira William Davenport.  Susan and Ira had many more children.  Some of these children were: H.E. Davenport, Robert Davenport, James I. Davenport and Viola Davis.



-W.V. Chandler:  Dr. William Vance Chandler; Will Chandler was my great-grandfather. -H.E. Davenport:  Henry Eugene Davenport (my grandfather called him “Uncle Bub,” married to Charlsie Brimer)
-Robert Davenport:  Robert West Davenport (my grandfather called him “Uncle Bob”)
-James I. Davenport:  (I think he’s James Ira Davenport but I’m not positive, he was in Arkansas by 1903 and settled in Washington state by 1910).
-Viola Davis:  Viola Davenport Davis (Mrs. Tom D. Davis)
-I.W. Davenport: Ira William Davenport (husband of Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler Davenport; step-father to Will Chandler)
-W.G. Vance:  William Gilmer Vance (father of Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler Davenport; husband of Sicily Devenport Vance)
-Sicily Vance:  Sicily Devenport Vance (please note- her maiden name is Devenport not Davenport, Mrs. William Gilmer Vance, mother of Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler Davenport)
-Samuel G. Vance:  son of M/M W.G. Vance, brother of Susan, husband of Alice Devenport
-Susan Elliott Chandler:  Susan Elliotte Vance Chandler Davenport, mother of 5 listed above
-F.M. Davenport: probably Francis Marion Devenport, father in law of Samuel Vance (Alice’s father)
-estate of Wm. S. Vance: unsure but feel this must mean William Gilmer Vance 
-J.H. Traynham: James Hembree “Coon” Traynham, married Samuel Vance’s daughter Lena, my grandfather called him “Uncle Coon.”
-Mrs. W.V. Chandler:  Tallulah Christine Jones Chandler, wife of Dr. W.V. Chandler, was a newlywed living in Baldwin, Habersham County, GA.

-One unusual bit of information about these individuals:
“FM Settemaier Ottilie Jenisch witness as to signature of J.I. Davenport”

FM Settemaier was buried in Lewis County, Washington in 1910.  Ottilie Jenisch was also there and she signed a deed regarding both FM Settemaier and James I. Davenport in Lewis County, Washington on 25 August 1910.  You can find more information here:
I will search for more information about these individuals.]
