My name is Edgar Davis ,I was born on McGee creek in 1944. My father is Orvil Davis, his father was Francis Davis, his father was James Davis, his father was Caswell Davis.We farmed on McGee for some time , the hard way chopping wood all work done by team and horses,no electric ,no running water, outhouse, before moving east of Versailles out on Spunky Ridge.There with my 2 brothers Archie Davis, and Junior Davis we learned the ways of being true pioneers taught to us by our Grandfather Francis Davis and Grandmother Opal Davis .I should hope that the Davis pioneer ways and relentess faith are forever etched into the history of Brown County, and Versailles, Illinois.
