I am a decendant of Jeremiah Levi Davis and Lettie Matilda (Johnson) Davis. They moved from Chattooga County GA to Gunter, Grayson County Texas in 1895, selling their Chattooga County Land to Terrel Gray.

Lettie Matilda Johnson had an oldest sister named Sarah Ann Johnson b.18 December 1822. The daughter of John Williams Johnson and Elizabeth Mitchel(sp?) Johnston. I have some information on them and all their children.

In a published History of Chattooga County that I looked up in Summerville in the 1980's (didn't think at the time to copy the book's front page info) Terrel Gray and Sarah Gray were present for the orginizational meeting of the Emmaus Primative Baptist Church in 1856, and Terrel was at it's end in 1908. My ancestors were members there too.

The LDS library has the microfilmed church minutes for Emmaus as I took them out to be copied. It is microfilm #1421965, items 2 and 3. You can get your local LDS church geneology library to send it there if you want to read it.

J. L. Davis also had several dealings with Thomas Gray and Terrel Gray in the Deeds Books. I have typed abstracts of these.

Please write me for more details. I have a scanner, so I can send you group sheets and copies of the abstracts. Several are good sourses.
