  • Notes 
    • From "A History of Mulberry Community Church - 1818 - 1968" by Ulysses H. Abrhams:
      James Davenport and wife, Elizabeth Davenport, were natives of South Carolina. He was born there in the year of 1786, and she in 1787. This family arrived on Mulberry with the first group of settlers. They were here in 1818 and James Davenport was one of the organizers of Mulberry Church. They were the parents of a very large family of children: Joseph, Wilson, John, William, D. H., Mary, Amanda, Isaac, Jackson, Emory, Wash, Marion and perhaps others.
