Subject: [DAVIS-L] Bit of Information To: DAVIS-L@rootsweb.com Hello list, " Davis is one of the oldest Welsh family names. The line can be traced for many centuries and is said to include King Cole and Cadwaldar. The motto of the family is 'With God as a Leader and a Sword as a Comrad". Of the many Davis emigrants to America the family which later became the most notable is that of Evan Davis, Samuel Davis and Joseph Davis; three brothers who emigrated from Cardiff, Wales, about 1730,. Evan Davis and Samuel Davis landed at Philadelphia: Joseph Davis went what was then the Middle West. Some time after 1761, the exact date not being known,Evan Davis emigrated from Pennsylvania, to Georgia. He married while still in Pennsylvania, Mrs. Mary Emory Williams, a widow. Her father was Joseph Emory. By her first marriage this lady had two sons, Daniel Williams and Isaac William, both of whom were soldiers in the Revolution . It was due to their participation in the war that their young half -brother, Samuel Davis also joined the forces of the revolution, being sent by their mother to join them Evan Davis and his wife (Mary Emory Davis), had at least one son, Samuel Davis, mentioned above, who was born in the Pennsylvania in 1756. this Samuel Davis, who was in the revolution, was the father of President Jefferson Davis of the Confederate States of American".

The will is for real and the info on Phillip K. of Wright Co. is from the Wright Co. Heritage Book which are not always dependable. Also where does Travis Davis fit in ?
