Nathan and Jane were from Laurens District, South Carolina-their marriage is implied through land transactions. They took a circuitous route on their way to Texas.

Then traveled by flatboat to New Orleans and by steamboat to San Augustine, Texas. They were one of the earliset settlers in Texas being a part of the original Austin Company. Nathan, being an educated man was asked to serve as alcalde. The proclamation appointing him alcalde was signed by President Mirabeau B. Lamar and is at the SFASU library. Nathan acquired lands and slaves; but was known for his kind treatment of his slaves. He expected his own children to teach the slave children what they were learning in the classroom. This at a time when it was unlawful to teach slaves to read and write. Nathan and Jane Davis appear in the 1850 census of Shelby County, Texas. The first census of the Republic of Texas in 1836 shows Nathan, age 56 (farmer) and wife Jane age 55, Lewis age12 and Anthony age 10 with a servant Mill age 36.
