Thank you Judy.  I should have mentioned that Davis was her maiden name.

I have been able to locate a Pamela Davis 1821 Ohio - 1901 Syracuse, Kosciusko Co., Indiana. Interred at Syracuse Cemetery (Find a Grave #36988754).

Her husband was Nathaniel Davis 1826 - 1888. He is interred next to her, along with their daughter Amanda Davis 1849 - 1872.

There is a listing of other children for them.  Amanda, Pamela, Nathaniel (Jr. ?), Lida, and Malen at Find a Grave.

 I guess thery are all interred there together. I'll check my genealogy list to see if I have any connections to them.

Hope this helps a bit.

Hey Jefferson Davis fans... I too think my late husband was also related to JD. I've seen an early picture of him and a picture of my husband were the spitin image.

So anyway I bought a book "Jefferson Davis by: William J. Cooper, Jr. and on page three there is a letter from JD to his sister Amanda. He's addressing their fathers death. Amandawas married to: David Bradford and they had two childrennamely, Benjamin and David. I'm sure there are more answers to your question in there but I haven't read it all yet. So go look in the Library or go buy it I'm sure it'll help.

Hello everyone! I am so glad to have found this site. I have been beating my head against a brick wall for quite some time trying to find a Sophia Davis, who was born around 1812 in Indiana. She is my great great grandmother. She married Eli Roberts in 1832 in Knox, IL. They lived in Schuyler County, IL until sometime between 1870 and 1880 where they then show up in Ravenna Town, Fannin County, Texas. Prior to having married Eli, I have found NO history on either Sophia or Eli.

My Davis connection is through my Mother's side of the family. My late Grandfather was US Army MSGT. Mercer Fullilove "Dick" Davis, born in Alabama. We still have family down their. And have quite a bit of info to share, if anyone wants it.

Researching Davis / Davice family in Wolcott, Vermont and possibly Maine around 1800 - 1830.  My 2nd great grandfather Michael Dean Davis was born in Wolcott in 1828, his father and grandfather were possibly Thomas T. and Thomas Davis or Davice.

Christine, I have the following: Benjamin Davis, Sr. was b. abt 1743 in Southhampton, VA; m. Hannah Walls abt 1759 in Wake Co., NC where he died in Aug 1802 (Hannah in 1816).  I have 7 children listed for him b. between 1765 and abt 1790.  There could have been more.  My line is through his son, Aaron and his descendants moved to GA, MS, AL, FL, TX, OK, etc.  I do not have a David in my database born before the 20th century.

Totally stuck on David T. Davis, b. in Carolinas c. 1780, md. in Frederick Co VA 1806 Elizabeth Hedges, her family been there 2 generations, 1812 Betsy Young, Adams Co OH 1825 Permelia Bayless, killed, accident, Adams Co late 1827. Ch by all wives, only 3 found. Looking for a Davis family in MD/VA 18th c who had members move to the Carolinas.  Think David must have been returning to roots.
