Pharaba Ann Tennessee Elizabeth Allen (Grandma Davis) was born in 1834 at her family home near River Road, in what is now Cheatham Co., TN. Her parents were James Russell Allen and Mary Patterson Allen. In February, 1849 at the age of 14, (a few weeks before her 15th birthday) she was married to Milton Stokley Davis. Her first child, Susanna, was born in February of 1850, when she was 15 years old.
