Lucy Walker/James Davis

I have been searching for years for any information I can find on Lucy Walker who married James Davis. I know James' family, but can find nothing on him after his marriage to Lucy in Surry Co., Virginia on 16 January 1801.

James is the 12th child of Henry and Mary Marriott Davis. Henry Davis died in 1767 and the date of Mary's death is unknown. At the time of the proving of Henry's will, James Davis was under the guardianship of Benjamin Ezell who was married to one of James' sisters.

I have absolutely no information on Lucy Davis other than a birthdate of ca 1780 as she seems to have been of age when she married. I have been unable to trace the family after checking in many sources.

Any information on this couple would be deeply appreciated. I believe it is possible that Lucy's brother may have been James D. Walker, my husband's direct ancestor, who married a granddaughter of Henry Davis.

I will be happy to share any information I have that will be helpful to anyone regarding any of the Davis family or our Walker family. The Davis family is a long line descending from Thomas Davis who died in 1720 in Surry Co., Virginia. The only information I have on the Walker family starts with James D. Walker, born 1777 in North Carolina and died 1849 in Wilson Co., Tennessee. Lots of Davises also went to Wilson Co.
