He left a valuable real-estate at the entire disposal of the widow, with the concurrence of all the natural heirs, as his liberality had been amply experienced by them all in his lifetime. Elizabeth, his wife, survived him until 1825, beloved and respected by all who knew her, and reached the extreme age of one hundred and five years. Hers were stamina, both of the physical and moral constitution, fitting her to rear a race that were men ut the same time he married Julia Neale, the daughter of an intelligent merchant in the village of Parkersburg, in Wood County, on the Ohio river.

Of these all were more or less associated with Lieutenant Davis's after-life. Anne, the eldest daughter, one of the most excellent, sensible, and pious women of her day, became the wife of Dr. Robert Wood, who was afterward Surgeon-General of the United States Army. Sarah Knox became Lieutenant Davis's wife two years after this time. Elizabeth married Colonel Bliss, who was General Taylor's adjutant during the war with Mexico, and became his private secretary during his Presidency. The only son, Richard, became a Lieutenant-General in the Confederacy, and was one of the most gallant and daring heroes of an army that was the admiration of one continent and the wonder of the other. He was much beloved by Mr. Davis, who felt like a brother toward him. After the war he was the author of Destruction and Reconstruction, a brilliant

Being a personal friend of James, Duke of York, to whom Charles II. granted New Netherland, Carteret and Berkeley (another favorite) easily obtained a grant of territory between the Hudson and Delaware rivers, which, in gratitude for his services in the Island of Jersey, was called New Jersey.

Philip Carteret, governor of east Jersey, denied it, and the two governors were in open opposition. A friendly meeting of the two magistrates, on Staten Island, was proposed. Carteret declined it; and Andros warned him to forbear exer
