It appears grandmother Susan was married to a Sizemore, before she married my g- grandfather John Davidson.

Living next door to John & Susan Davidson, is a William Sizemore, and his wife Sandy.

John C. Davidson, married Susan Sizemore, 20 Feb 1868, Clay Co, KY.

Great grandparents.

Susans 2nd marriage. Perhaps her first husband was killed in the Civil War Just a guess.

The Draft Registration gave the info on the blue eyes and black hair, for Franklin, and said he marked his name with an X,
Russel Sisemore ( Sizemore) married Susan Couch, Dec 3, 1857 in Clay Co, KY.

This is Susans first husband.

Susan Couch, who married 1st Russell Sizemore, is your g-grandmother, She married 1st Russell Sizemore and he died 3 March 1863.

Note: Possible, this Rev Jas Napier, is the father of Emeriar Napier Davidson, but his wife Lizzie, would be to young to be Emeriar mother’s

We know your great grandparents John & Susan Davidson were still living, on Jan 4th & 5th, 1920. As they were living next door to your grandparents Frank and Emma Davidson.

This was my great grandmother Susan Couch 1st husband.

I have not found where she file for a pension. But she was already married by the time people were filing for pensions, but you would think the children would or could have filed.
