Davenport Cemetery / 1800s - San Antonio, Texas

William Davenport was born in 1820 in Saltville township, Virginia. His family later lived in Kentucky before settling in present-day Kaufman County, Texas in 1843. There William met and married Mary Ware, daughter of Texas Revolutionary veteran William Ware. William and Mary built a home south of Cibolo Creek soon after purchasing land here in 1851, part of the Vicente Micheli Survey. When Mary died the following year, William buried her near their home, establishing a community burial ground. In 1853, William married Nancy D. Young, whose father John was a veteran of the War of 1812 and was also later buried in Davenport Cemetery.
