Wiley Davis Angelina County Texas
Posted by: Jad Lee Davis (ID *****4983) Date: February 13, 2009 at 15:39:22

I am a descendent of the Wiley Davis who migrated to Texas around 1839 from Mississippi, and died in Angelina County, Texas in 1865. We believe that he was married 4, perhaps 5, times during his life. The list of his possible wives and children includes:
1) Jane Kelly (?Margaret Jane Kelly);
William Green Davis, John T. Davis, Sherwood Pierce Davis, James B. Davis, Harwell Passon (Pason, Pasen) Davis, Matilda Davis, Wesley H. Davis
2) Rebecca P.
3) Elizabeth Bryant;
Henderson Davis, Charles Davis
4) Martha Colwell;
Candilas Davis, William Davis
5) Margaret McAnally

I would like to obtain documents and information on his life. We are unsure of who his father was (with certainty). It has been speculated that his father was Wiley Davis, SR. and that his grandfather was an Absolom Davis. Some have said this is not the case.

I am confident that I am related (documentation) to the Wiley Davis that died in Angelina County in 1865. I would like to hear from others who are connected to this individual. My DNA has been analyzed by Family Tree DNA, and I would very much like to find a male who thinks they may be directly connected to Wiley or perhaps Absolom and may be interested in a getting a genetic test in order to rule information in or out.
Thanks.
