Thanks for this information. I will check it out.

I am looking for the parents and siblings of:
Daniel E. Davis, born about 1801 in Campbell County, VA. I have a reference to Campbell County Courthouse, VA as his place of birth

He married Sarah T. Smith in Campbell County, KT in 1843. She was born about 1814 in KT. She was at least a second wife and I have no idea who his first wife might have been.

Thaddeus, c1838, Indiana
John J., c1845, KT
Mary E., c1846, KT
Daniel Thomas, c1848, VA
Robert H. c1849, VA
George W., 8/15/1852, VA
Sarah Letitia, 9/21/1856, Iowa

The family was in Wapello County, Iowa in 1860, moved to Missouri just prior to the Civil War, then to Fannin County, Texas. They were in Fannin County in 1870 and supposed to have been in Denton County, Texas after that but I have not found them there. Daniel Thomas was in Tarrant County, Texas. I don't think he ever went to Denton County.

John may have died in the war. Family notes say Thaddeus died at the Battle of Pea Ridge which occurred just across the line from where they lived in Missouri but he is on the 1870 census and John is not so if any of the Davis boys died it was John. CSA records are sparce.
