The ancestors of Jefferson Davis, were of
pure English stock, but so ilonjr resident In
America that the type had become thorough- fi
ly southern American. On both sides they $3
served in the war for American Independ- jj
ence, his father, Samuel Davis, winning
some distinction in the mounted troops of ti
Georgia. Of his two sous, Jefferson early be-p
came a soldier, while Joseph, a man of talent, g
scarcely, if at all, inferior, gained a local S
success as lawyer and planter in Mississippi. Q
The brothers were notably affectionate ia
childhood, and remained through lire devoted
to each other.
Soon after the birth of Jefferson, Samuel
Diivis removed to Mississippi, locating near
Woodvllle, in VVilkinso.i county. The sons
there, acquired ten unusually good English
education for the timo, and at an early age
Jefferson entered Transylvania college, Ken
tucky. In I Si 1, however, President Monroe
appointed hlia a cadet at West Point, whence
him to complete the term, and in 1S50 re
elected him for a full term. Tho ever mem-1
