Descendants of David Davis

*****************1st Generation*****************

     David Davis was born ca 1786 in North Carolina (Per 1850 Census). He married Rachel _____. Rachel was born ca 1792. According to a Deed from David to his son James in 1838, it stated that David's plantation and Mill were located on 142 acres on Sandy Mush Creek, once in Buncombe Co., which became Madison Co., North Carolina in 1851. On a side note, that 142 acres of land was purchased from James Davis, who purchased it from Reason Davis, who purchased it from Meshack Davis. Meshack purchased the land originally from Joseph Dobson in 1804. David and his family were listed in the 1810 Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census with 1 male under 10, 1 male 16 - 26, and 1 female 16 - 26 years of age, the 1820 Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census with 1 male 10 -16, 1 male 26 - 45, 3 females under 10, and one female 18 -26 years of age, the 1830 3rd Regiment, Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census with 2 males under 5, 1 male 5 - 10, 1 male 40 - 50, 1 female under 5, 2 females 5 - 10, 1 female 10 - 15, 1 female 15 - 20, and 1 female 30 - 40 years of age, the 1840 Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census with 1 male 40 - 50, 1 female 10 - 15, and 1 female 40 - 50 years of age, and lastly in the 1850 Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census Records.
