I found the following an ancestry.com. The two Jane M. Davis' in 1850 &
1860 look to be the same. Most of the children you show are a good match.
Good luck with further research, Steve

I am looking for information on Jane M. Cushing, born circa 1813 possibly in
VT, married circa 1838 to Asher A. Davis.
There is a Jane M. Davis listed in the index for the 1860 Census for Iowa
City, Johnson Co., IA, but I do not have access to the full census. She is
on page 307 per this index.
If you do, I would appreciate it very much if you would look at the census
for me and provide me with more info on this Jane. She may be a divorced
The Jane I am looking for had children named Murray (or Murry), Lucy, Mary,
Annetta, and Carlyle (or Carlisle).
Both young men served in the Civil War. Carlyle served with the 44th
Infantry, Company D.
She may also be listed in the 1850 census in Linn Co. IA on page 32 if you
happen to have access to that info, I would appreciate it as well to confirm
if it is the same Jane M. Davis.
