She married GEORGE WELLINGTON DAVIS, DR. October 20, 1891, son of SIMEON DAVIS and NORA GINNEY.

Notes for NELLIE A. COON BLISS:

obit in Oneida Dem Union of Jan 25 1914 P. 5 COL 3. Nellie Coon Davis, wife of Dr. George W. Davis, Passed away at her late home at Peterboro late Monday afternoon. Mrs. Davis had been a sufferer from asthma for the last two years. She was born in Madison Co and in early life adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bliss of Peterboro, where the greater portion of her life, some 40 years was spent. Besides her husband and foster mother, who resided with her, she survived by two children, a boy of about four years and a girl of about nine.

We found her name on the register, in the Peterboro Museum, of "the Home for Destitute Children of Madison county ." It said, Neltie Coon, March 2,  1876, born Sept. 8, 1872 , age 4.

. Another entry said, Neltie Coon, March 7, "out on trial with Mr. Edward Bliss of Peterboro," and then a pencil note following," bound out."

Also, Donna Burdick found an old clipping dated April 13, 1896[?] " Mr. Coon of Dauton , Ohio, is visiting his sister, Mrs. George W. Davis"

We also found being registered into the Peterboro home, William J. Coon, March 2, 1876, b. Feb. 1870, came from Oneida, age 6.

Maybe not related, but there was also a William Coon reg. Dec. 3, 1873 b. Aug 10, 1853, came from Eaton, age 14. This age must be wrong. Reg date probably is right because the home didn't open until 1871. He might have been transferred from the old "poor house" as some kids were when the Peterboro home opened.

Notes for GEORGE WELLINGTON DAVIS, DR.:

Came to Peterboro when abt 2 years old. was a pharmacist and physician and surgeon. Traveled the country roads to see his patients.
