Re: Location of Isaac Davis home

Keith,

I do not see anything that suggest or confirms a relationship. All I can say for sure is that there was an Isaac Davis there around that time. I have nothing to identify this one.

When Fanny Davis, widow of John Davis, filed a suit of dower in 1789 it was against Isaac, James, Benjamin and Jeremiah, and they were listed as the heirs of John Davis. Sampson was not mentioned. This case was not settled and in 1791 Sampson applied to be administrator on the estate of John Davis. It was granted and he settled the estate. There must be a connection some way between Sampson and this John Davis but I do not see anything that explaines it. There is a lot of speculation that has been put down as fact.

I like the website for topographical maps that you sent me. That is great and I like it better that my hardcopy as it shows more details.

Thanks,
Margie
