      Boston 1886
      The first settlement in this town was in 1778-9, by a Mr. Stannard, who moved away in a few years; so that the first permanent settler was James Davis, a Presbyterian minister, originally from Massachusetts. Two years later his two sons William and Joshua, and a more distant relative, became residents. These all settled in the neighborhood of what is now Liberty. These families intermarried, and the Davis families became so numerous that the plantation gained the name of Davistown, which it retained until its incorporation.
