Thank you for your follow up posting. I am trying to find information on the Davis Family. I know nothing about Mary's parents or siblings. Since posting my message I have found that her father might be William Davis and her mother Anne or Elizabeth. That she might be a sister to the Andrew Davis on your posting.

In William Davis' will the children listed were:
Andrew Davis m. Rachel child: Andrew Pickens Davis
Anne Davis m. William Porter
Margaret m. Joseph Beaty
Female Davis McEwen m. James McEwen
Elizabeth "Betsy" Davis m. William Scott
William Davis
John Davis m. Esther

Maybe a Henry Davis not in the will.
The wife of William was not listed on the will.

Also in William Davis' will he gives Mary a slave named Mill and later Mary sells the slave in Warren, TN.

If anyone has a copy of William Davis' will and/or a copy of the selling of the slave - I would appreciate getting a copy or at least the names of the sources so I can do a look up.

Thanks Gail
