Re: Hester/s Family from Bladenboro

Dear Debbie and Keith-

My Davis lineage is on the side of Sampson, Sr. and Sampson, Jr. I have found quite a lot of information in the N.C. Heritage Book, Bladen County.

I, too, would be interested in knowing more about the Hesters. Sampson Jr. married Rebecca Hester(c1790-11March 1855), the daughter of John and Comfort Hester. Their children were John Davis, Hannah Davis, Everit Davis, David Davis(my great grandfather), william Davis(David's twin brother), Ephraim P. Davis, Eliza Davis, Anna Davis, and Malsey Davis.

So far, I cannot find out about Sampson Davis Sr.'s first wife, and who she was. He married his second wife, Ruth Bryant in 1815.

Would appreciate a reply about the above.

June Davis Handte
Ellijay, Ga.
