Was Benjamin a brother of Abel Davis, b. c1768, VA who d. testate in White Co., IN 1847? Abel left his property to his son Isaac [1804-1878] who m. Mary Phillips, Champaign Co., OH.

The Whitley Historical Society of Columbia City, IN has published, book 2 of "The Notebook of Nellie Riley Raber" that relates primarily to Ross & Fayette Counties , OH. One item notes, "Benjamin Davis, native of VA came to OH 1800 & settled Deer Creek Twp., then on Darby creek, in Muhlenburg Twp. later to White Co., IN where he d. age 90 . . . His children: John, b. 1807; m. Elizabeth Crabb, a native of Ross Co., b. 1810, d. 1882, had 16 cildren, 10 reached maturity: William, ...Joseph, Isaac, David, Thomas Fletcher, Mary A., Amanda & Millard. Of these William m. Rebecca A McGurie who d. 28 Apr 1881.

RootsWeb's World Connect Project, "Our Family Tree" submitted by Penny & David Rabing, includes the family of John DAvis and his descendants. John, b. 1800 m. Mary E. Newland and is s/o Abel & Mary Davis. Abel [c.1768-1847] according to Isaac Mason Davis of White Co,[1829-1910] his grandson, was shanghaied when a child and brought to America by sailors. The bio. also indicates Abel (I. M. Davis' paternal grandfather) was a veteran of the Rev. & War of 1812 (no record supports such claim).

Benjamin DAvis' wife, Maria, was apparently #2, presumed widow of Mr. Burget.

Abel & Mary Davis had sons: John, Isaac, Philip H., Jacob, and daughters - Mary, b. 1790, Rebecca, m. Andrew Luzader; Catherine, Nancy and possibly Mary, II. Abel's wife, Mary Davis d. in Champaign Co., OH and in 1828 Abel m. Catherine Kirkwood. Most of Abel & Mary's children moved with Abel in 1835 to White Co., IN. Looking for descendants.
