I have been researching my Davis line for years. Far back as I could get was my 5th great John Davis b. approx 1720 died 1799 in Edgecombe Co. N.C. In 1755 his mother Margaret Shaw left him all of her belongings in Edgecombe Co N.C. I have never been able to find any marriage records showing if Margaret was married to a Davis and who and if she remarried at some point to a Shaw. I found where a Margaret Shaw was on a list in 1715 in Prince George Co. VA as being one of many white women in the county that had a mixed race child. This is the only margaret Shaw I have been able to find around this time period. She is listed as margaret Shaw Prince George County Va 1715 orders{1714-20,book 30}. Does anyone have access to this to see if there is any more info on this woman to see if this is even the same margaret Shaw. Also if anyone runs across a margaret Shaw in any marriage records or anything within this time period. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Rick Davis
