Some time ago, I inherited some books from the personal library of my great-grandfather, Rev. C.J. Davis (1908 – 1995). Two volumes had belonged to my great-great-great grandfather, Rev. Andrew Nathaniel Jackson Davis (1844 – 1938). He went by his initials: N.J.
Most of his sons went by initials as well.
Robert Wallace – R.W.
Rufus Urial – R.U.
Benjamin Franklin – B.F.
Thomas Jefferson – T.J.
Charles Walter – C.W.
Below are a couple of photographs of an 1879 book entitled “The Church.” The title page contains the signature of both C.J. And N.J. Davis.
