Sorry. I don't have any information except as follows:

Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002
Name:        Anderson Davis
Spouse:        Barshaba Johnson
Marriage Date:        17 Jul 1824
Marriage County:        Grainger
Marriage State:        Tennessee

I recall a comment by someone (I know, this sounds very limp) that Anderson and Barshaba moved to Kentucky after this marriage.

Benjamin, Joab, William, and Lavinia were children of Isham and Barshaba Johnson as you can see by the following notes of Polly Reed. Polly did a huge amount of research on the Johnson families from the Hawkins County area.

!!COURT RECORDS;Doc. JJJ 002 Grainger Co. Court Minutes: Grainger Co TN
ROLL 25, BOOK 6, pg. 84: 1825 Joshua Johnson appointed guardian of
minor heirs of Isham Johnson. I have copy. Fr. Nell Ford and Cleo Shipley
Abercrombie, descds.. of John M. Johnson, a copy of Joshua Johnson's
gardianship bond, shows Isham's children as William, Benjamin, Joab,
and Lavina. Polly Phillips, East Tn Hist. Soc. Query Editor, Knoxville,TN,
(also Vineyard descendent of John M. Dent), says that Isham's widow,
Barbara, md Anderson Davis. I haven't been able to find anymore about
them. I have tried to find a will for Isham but Grainger Co. doesn't have
wills recorded until 1833. 2 Jan 1992, 1GUARDIAN BOND; $500 Bond,
for Joshua Johnson and John Denn? is this John Dent? children named,
Benjamin, Joab, William, and Lavinia..
