From the book "The Pioneers of Madison and Hancock Counties, Indiana" written in 1895 by Samuel Harden, is the following: (this man lived in Henry County)

"He was born in Showendon (I am sure this should be Shenandoah) Co., VA, October 29, 1830. He was married to Malinda Davis August 27, 1851.

She was born September 7, 1828. She is the eldest daughter of the late John Davis, of Adams Township (Madison County, I believe.) He was born in North Carolina, April 13, 1800 and came to the county of Madison about 1826. He was married to Mary Jackson in 1825, also born in Virginia in 1805."

"Mrs. John Fattic is a sister of Maxey, Henry, Tana, Clarinda, James H., William, Laurana, Mary A., John and Betty. Clarinda, Laurana and William are deceased. John Davis died in 1881; buried at the McAllister cemetery. Mrs. Davis died June 27, 1847; buried at the McAllister cemetery. Mr D. was again married to Mary Creason. she died February 11, 1884; also buried at the McAllister cemetery. Both members of the Baptist Church."

"The following are the names of the children of John Fattic, all born, I think, in Henry County near Mechanicsburg: Mary A., married to C.B. Swain; Henry A., married to Jennie Keesling; William B., married to Sarah Keesling; Dr. John B., married to Florence Victor of Cincinnati, Ohio."

"Dr. Fattic is a graduate of the highest medical schools....
He located in Anderson in 1890, soon after graduating, and entered into a good practice. He was appointed in 1894 on the United States Pension Board of Examiners at Anderson."

"Mr. John Fattic.....owns a farm near Mechanicsburg, Henry County, where he has lived all his married life."

John and Mary are mentioned in the chapter on John Davis; however the name is spelled Fatic.
