wit samual thompson Thomas king and Zacharich maddren prob 21 dec 1720
This will of Thomas Davis dosen,t mention a Thomas as a son but as a grandson ,So I have James as the father of Henry davis that married Marriot.
This will shows James leaving to Henry and the will is Probated in 1746
Leg: to son, James Davis,80 acres of land. to sons , Henry and
Robert, land where I live,lower part to Henry,to son, Thomas Davis, land on John,s branch in Isle of Wright co. and one negro. to two sons Thomas and Nathaniel, a bill bond from James Silvers. to sons John, Henry, James, Nathaniel, and Robert, one negro each. wife, Elizabeth Davis exorc. 4 sept 1746 -probate 21 jan 1746
wit : Thomas Warren, John Warren, John Slate
it is witnessedby the two warrens so Elizabeth is probably a warren.
Benjamin a son of henry witnesses the will of benjamin Ezell in 1825 along with Benjamin Standley and John Webb.
Benjamins Daughter Nancy married Davis Ezell son of Benjamin. and Benjamin Ezell is mentioned in the will of Henry davis.
The wills are all that i have that show any dates Stan
