Helen,

I am trying to find out if this William W. Davis is the father of Seth L. Davis. Seth L. Davis was born July 14, 1801 in Pennsylvania. Census records in 1820 show a large family living with William W. Davis. In 1830 I find William W. Davis with only 1 child, but I find Seth L. Davis with possible siblings. The two familys in 1830 show a strong correlation to the 1820 William W. Davis family. I also know that on Oct. 3, 1830 Seth L. Davis married Sarah Ann Smith. He is my G-G-Grandfather.

What information do you have that ties William to birth in Virginia about 1775 and to Eden, Licking Co., OH in 1850?

Thanks,

Gary
