I forced the dates of the daughters to meet the only possible dates for this family line to work. It is possible the daughters are in order in the father's will, and that the dates should be consecutive.
Drumaboden, Ulster, Ireland was once listed as the birthplace of this Jacob Clements. I do not recall the source, and doubt it was correct.

He was born 1744 in Augusta Co., VA, and died 25 Feb 1825 in Maury Co., TN. Notes for John Davidson: His father resided Chestnut Level, Lancaster Co., PA, and moved to Augusta Co., VA adjacent Tinkling Springs Presbyterian Church, where the names John Davison and Samuel Davison are listed as original "contributors" to its construction. In 1748 his father resided Iredell Co., NC. In 1807 John, known as "One-Eyed John" and / or "Columbia John" lived near Columbia, Maury Co., TN. 16 Jul 1751 was one recorded birthdate, which would make him born in NC. John Davidson, son of George Davidson and Margaret Ware, is recorded as born that date.
Quoted from a DAR submission: "John Davidson received a grant of land in Tennessee for his service as private, North Carolina Line. He was born in Rowan County, N. C. [note: not necessarily so] ; died in Maury County, Tenn."
On September 16, 1820 the Tennessee General Assembly reaffirmed John Davison's grant of 5,000 acres (Maury County Deed Book H, Entry 455.) Another entry (Book J) made three weeks after the above reads in part: ". . . the same John Davidson, for the natural love and affection which he hath and doth bear unto his son John Osimus Davisdson, and more especially for an din consideration of the sum of five shillings, does give 800 acres on Little Tombigby Creek and part of the same John Davidson's 5000 acre survey. Witnesses, Vincent Ridley and E. E. Davidson." [Note: Vincent Ridley is also an uncle to Mark Freeman though his mom; John Osimus Davidson is a grandather on his father's line.]
Old John Davidson (I) had already apportioned his land among his children: 466 acres to Whiteside when he married Ruth Malinda Clements Davidson; 900 acres to Ephriam Edward Davidson, 800 to John Osimus Davidson, plus 200 more to be administered for his stepmother, Francis Bateman (Benenoir, daughter of Revolutionary War soldier, Nathaniel Bateman); 400 to Paris Dooley, plus slaves for Cynthia, his daughter by Fanny Bateman; 120 acres to John Martin, husband of Mary.
On October 22, 1822 old John executed this deed:
. . . for natural love and affection, said John Davidson, hath and beareth unto the said Paris F. Dooley and also for the better maintenance, support, and livelihood of said Paris F. Dooley . . . 400 acres . . .
In December, 1822: For natural love and affection I bear for my son, John Osimus Davidson, I give the tract of land on which I now reside, containing 200 acres (reserving to myself the occupancy and entire benefit of said premises during my natural life) and also a comfortable residence to my beloved wife, Fanny Davidson, if she survives me, during her widowhood, to be secure from molestation or disturbance of any kind from the said John Osimus Davidson . . .

In testimony whereof I have hereto set my hand and seal this 15th day of June, 1824. Signed, sealed, and disclosed in presence of Joseph B. Porter, Jurat John Mathews, Jurat JOHN DAVIDSON
Two men are probably being confused with the descriptions "One-Eyed John" and "Columbia John". The story about a John D. Davidson marrying Nancy Brevard and being killed by Indians in 1781 is not about my ancestor. That other family is in my file, but the facts are in dispute. That John D. Davidson was probably born about 1750-1751. The subject here is likely "Columbia John," having lived and died in Columbia, Maury Co., TN.
