Family Farm Plot, Appears to be the Isaac Davis Family Farm. ..c1805
Price: $100.00

What appears to be a farm plot of the Isaac Davis family farm in Acton, MA. Isaac Davis Sr. was an American Revolutionary War hero. He commanded a company of Minutemen from his home town, during the Battle of Concord, the first battle of the American Revolutionary War. During the American advance on the British, Davis was among the first killed and was the first American officer to die in the Revolution. With his wife, Hannah Brown Davis, he had four children, one of which was named Isaac Davis Jr. If one were to overlay the farm plot over a current map depicting the  historical location of the Davis family farm in Acton, MA, the roads and location appear to match up.  The paper has a watermark of "D Ames". David Ames was a papermaker who since approximately 1800 operated out of a mil in Springfield, MA. Measures 14 1/2" x 12".  . Minor foxing and toning due to age and small tears along the fold creases.
