wHAT YOU HAVE IS THE SAME AS WHAT I HAVE EXCEPT MINE IS FROM THE AUDITOR OF THE WILL BY THE EXECUTOR, AND IN THIS IT STATES "TO BENJAMIN EZELL FOR WIFE". MY PROBLEM IS IT DOES NOT SAY WHAT THE WIFES NAME IS. i DO NOT THINK IT WOULD BE FOR HENRYS WIFE BECAUSE HE LEAVES PAYMENT TO OTHERS FOR WIFE. WHY WOULD HE LEAVE PAYMENT TO BENJAMIN FOR WIFE IF IT IS FOR THE GAURDIANSHIP OF HIS SON JAMES, UNLESS FOR WIFE IS REALLY HENRYS DAUGHTER AND IS THE WIFE OF BENJAMIN . IF THIS IS TRUE THEN IT CREATES ANOTHER PROBLEM FOR ME ,HE DOES NOT GIVE HER NAME AND BENJAMIN IN HIS WILL NAMES HIS WIFE AS SARAH,THAT CREATES ANOTHER PROBLEM, HENRY DOES NOT SHOW A DAUGHTER SARAH. I WAS HOPING THAT THE NAME MAY BE SARAH "ANN" DAVIS.
mY BELIEF IS TAT HE WANTS TO LEAVE MONEY TO HIS DAUGHTERS BUT NOT BEING ABLE TO LEAVE MONEY TO A MARRIED WOMAN HE STATES TO BENJAMIN FOR WIFE. hIS UNDERAGE CHILDREN HE LEAVES TO AS " TO BENJAMIN FOR JAMES DAVIS" AND IF THEY ARE MARRIED HE LEAVES TO THE HUSBAND, THUS IF THE DAUGHTER OR SON IS OF AGE HE GIVES NAME, THAT KILLS MY THEORY ON DAUGHTER ANN BEING SARAH ANN AS SHE IS THE ONLY DAUGHTER NAMED WITHOUT A GAURDIAN. a VERY CONFUSING WILL FOR FURTURE READERS

Henry Davis,Sr. Account current. Date 1768. rec.: 22 oct 1776 . Etheldrod Gray executor. mentions payments to: Benjamin Ezell for wife: Benjamin Ezell, gaurdian of James Davis: James Taylor for wife: James Taylor ,Gaurdian of Elizabeth Davis: (ANN DAVIS)): Benjamin Davis: William Taylor for wife: William Taylor, gaurdian of silvia Davis: Isham Davis: Randolph Davis : Mathew Marriott and Benjamin Davis for Henry Davis: Thomas Marriott, Gaurdian of Marriott Davis : and William Davis. James Kee and Lemual Cocke, Auditors
