I am from the family of James Thomas Davis through his uncle, Robert Harrison Davis.
James Thomas Davis was the son of Sidney Davis who was the brother to Robert Harrison Davis and George Washington Davis. Robert and George left Shelby county by 1880 and moved to Erath and Palo Pinto County.
Robert's wife was Almira Sanders Murray Davis. Her sister, Ann Elizabeth Murray married John E. Crenshaw on 19 Nov 1851 after his first wife, Ruth L. Lavender died in 1849.
John and Ruth's only child Elizabeth Ann "Betsy" Crenshaw was b. 25 Aug 1846.
John and Ann Elizabeth had 9 children.
I have visited the grave of John which is about 60 miles from me near Gordon, Palo Pinto Co., Tx.
I assume you are related to the Crenshaw side of the family.
If you need any additional information, I would be happy to help you.
I have a Sanders Book on the family from NC which lists my Almira Sanders Murray Davis. Her mother was a Sanders before marrying the Murray. Almira and her mother and siblings left NC after her father died and traveled to MS along with her mother's brother, Robert Benjamin Sanders.
