My GGGgrandmother, Elizabeth Davis, was married first to Capt. Henry Bishop. From this marriage there were three children; Nancy, Hannah & Henry. She married second to Walter Davies/Davis of Mecklenburg, NC. I have copies of guardianship papers for her son Henry by Walter Davis. Walter Davis & Elizabeth had two children: William Henry Davis and Elizabeth Davis. I am a descendant of Elizabeth Bishop Davis through William Henry Davis.
The executors of the will of Elizabeth Bishop Davis (d. 20 Oct 1809 in Rutherford County, TN) were her sons-in-law Robert Elliott and John Erwin.
I believe that Elizabeth's maiden name was Henry...though I've not been able to substantiate it. It seems unlikely that she would name her first born with her second husband after her first husband. I have other coincidental clues that make my guess even more plausible. Does anyone have further info on Elizabeth's family?
