Check Terry Davis’ Website for the Edmund Davis Family:
I am doing research on my husband's family. His ggggrandfather was Lindsay Davis. Lindsay was born in Randolph County, N. C. in 1807. He married Sarah (Sally) Fentress March 30, 1826 in Randolph County. Sarah was born in 1803 in Randolph County. They had nine children who were born in Randolph County. I found Lindsay in the 1830 and 1840 Censuses in Randolph County. In 1850 I found them in Van Buren County, Arkansas. The children were as follows: Thomas M. 21, Joseph C. 21, Susan 19, Rebecca 17, Abby 15, Reuben D. 12, William Perry 10 ( my gggrandfather), Selah 7, and John L. Davis 5. They next appear in Gonzales County Texas in 1860 and 1870 and in Travis County and Williamson Counties Texas in 1880-1910. Lindsay died in 1897 and Sarah in 1884. They are buried in Cedar Park, Williamson County, Texas. William Perry Davis is buried in the Andice Cemetery, Andice, Burnet County, Texas. I see that there are many Davises in Randolph County. I would very much like to know who Lindsay's parents are and also who Sarah Fentress's parents are. Any help will be appreciated. (3/31/2001). Kathy Inman firstname.lastname@example.org.
