I had a gggreat grandfather named Jim Davis that supposedly had over one hundred children. He was originally married to Dicey Tatum and had numerous children with her and then much later married my gggreat grandmother Mary and had two children Lloyd Davis and Emma Davis Tatum. I am not sure if this is the same Jim, but I was told that he had children with a native American woman whom he brought back from fighting in the west; I thought this was just a tall tale at the time. I have never found any proof of a marriage between Dicey and Mary. There is a large time span between Dicey's death and Jim's remarriage to Mary so there could be another marriage or relationship in that time span. My Jim has a grave marker at Briar Branch Church. His original grave was located somewhere in The White Oak area of Bladen County.
