DAVIS family lines in Orange County, NC

I am looking for any information I can find on William "Long Billy" Fernilson Davis. He is my GGGG Grandfather, buried at his family cemetery in NewHouse, NC. The graves have very nice stones, but is very grown over. I hope to get it cleaned up as soon as I can.

I have found references that his father is Philip Davis. Philip's father being Benjamin Davis and wife Rebecca Savis. I have found a couple of references that Benjamin was in Orange, County, NC...which at the time of the 1700's was a span of about 3-4 current counties. I did find a few land records of deeds where in the late 1700's in Orange County, NC where a Benjamin and Rebecca Davis sold some land to John Durham. I have yet to locate much more than this on Philp and Benjamin. I wouldl especially like to find where they are buried! Any and all information would be greatly appreciated and I will be more than happy to provide what I can!
