The following are census records. I could not find Martha in 1870. There is no record that I could find of her marrying a Nathaniel Davis, Branson Boling married 9/24/1872 in Clay Co., Ind was the only marriage record I found.
1850 Praire, Henry Co., Ind
Nathaniel Davis 45 VA farmer

Floyd C. 4/1896 Ind
Martha J. Thomas (mother-in-law) 12/1841 widow 2 children, 1 living b. Ind. (f) VA (m) KY
GEORGE W. THOMAS WAS THE SON OF ISAAC THOMAS AND ELIZABETH THOMAS AS SHOWN IN THE 1870 VAN BUREN CO., IND CENSUS - I tried to track back on Jeanette as a Davis and as a Thomas without luck
1910 Van Buren, Clay Co., Ind
George W. Crist 76 b. OH (parents: VA) (1st marriage, 2 years) retired
Martha J. 69 (1st marriage, 2 yrs) b. Ind (f) VA (m) KY
1920 Van Buren, Clay Co., Ind
George W. Crist 86 b. OH (parents: VA) no occupation
Martha J. 78 b. Ind (f) Va (m) KY
If Martha was married to a Davis circa 1861 or late 1860, then Jeanette/Janette should have shown on the 1870 census - she does not show as Davis nor as Thomas nor as Boling.
I tried a search of all Indian for: Martha J. b. 1841/42, Martha Jemima b. 1841/42; Jemima b. 1841/42 and did not find her in 1870. I also searched for an Albert Davis with mother of Martha J., Martha or Jemima and found nothing.
It appears that Martha married George Crist circa 1908. Since in 1900 Martha answers that she has had 2 children but only 1 is living it is presumed that Albert is deceased. The Jeanette Thomas shown is most likely Martha's daughter and it is by coincidence that her daughter married the son of her husband, Isaac Thomas but again, I could not find her in 1870.
Hope the above is of some help. Pat
