Company D
Samuel Houston Davenport - Private   
Samuel Houston Davenport, 26, (born one year after the Fall of the Alamo), and his older brother, William Lewis Davenport, 32, where members of Company "D".
I am descended from their younger brother Andrew A. Davenport, who stayed at home on the farm with his widowed mother. (Andrew Davenport was my great, great grandfather).

In 1662 Samuel deserted the Unit, and was later captured at the family farm in KY.. He was court-martialed and sentenced to hard labor, bread and water with a ball and chain around his leg for 30 days. He then returned to his Unit and served the remainder of the war.

Many years ago I wrote an article about the 20th Kentucky focusing on the Battle at Lebanon, KY, and its aftermath for the Officers and men. My research for the article included the Official Record, news articles from KY newspapers, etc. It is 44 pages including citations.
If you would like a copy, then please contact me and I will email it to you.
