I am seeking information on Dr. Jewell W. and Cynthia (JONES) DAVIS and their descendants. Cynthia JONES b. Jul 1814; d. 21 May 1890 Charleston, IL; m. 25 Apr 1834 Meigs Co, OH to Dr. Jewell W. DAVIS b. 1811; d. 1884.

Cynthia's obituary in the “Meigs County Republican” of Middleport, OH, dated Wed., 28 May 1890, p. 3, Column 1 says: Mrs. Cynthia JONES DAVIS died at her home in Charleston, Cole county, IL, May 21, 1890. She was born in Middleport, Jul 16, 1814; she was a daughter of the late Philip JONES, the founder of the town, and was a ister of Mrs. Serena ECKMAN,Mrs. Candace ROUP, and Mrs. Samuel M. WELDON, of Middleport, and Mrs. Philena SHARON, of Gallia county; besides she had many other relatives in Middleport and elsewhere.

Cynthia's only known children were: (1) Mary DAVIS b. ca. 1834 (2) Curtis L. DAVIS b. 1839; d. 1896; m. Hannah BOUTWELL b. 1846; d. 1892; Reuben DAVIS b. ca. 1842.

The only known children of Curtis ad Hannah DAVIS are: (1) Philip B. DAVIS b. 1876; d. 1926; m. Dora COON b. 1877

I have a lot of ancestry on the JONES family, which is my family, too. I am trying to compile descendants of the family.
