Sorry I'm late to reply, but work and family events have interfered with my time for genealogy.

I find the following listings for the Davis surname in the index of "The History of Lumpkin County for the First Hundred Years": Miss Biddie, Bob, Dan, Doc, Jacob R., Jim, Joe, Joseph, Loranzo, Miller, Pink, and Tilman.

The reference for Jim Davis (pg 183 of "The History...) quotes from a letter written by Col. W.P. Price, dated Feb 7, 1898, to a Conferate reunion. It says: "Jim Davis, our town marshall, followed General Colquitt's banner all the time." Could this Jim be your James? (Probably not, I think I found a later reference that said the sheriff was James "Jim" Martin Davis.)

For the Satterfield surname I find listings for Ben, Bill, J. N., John, W. H., West, and William H. I don't find a James or Dora listed in the index.

There are many listings for the Davis and Satterfield surnames in "The Heritage of Lumpkin County..", but no first names appear in the index and there are just too many pages for me to search every page listed for Davis and Sattefield.

I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck on your search.
