Welcome to The Davis Clan of Buncombe Co., North Carolina Page. There are so many Davis's in one place it is hard to decipher them; fathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, etc. I am attempting to try and piece them together as much as I could. I have been working on this line for quite some time now. I believe the information below is correct, but if you find any discrepancies please email me. I hope you find the information helpful to you, and do let me know if you have more that you would like to add, PLEASE as I want the information to be as correct as possible. Thank you.

Please remember each bit of information found here, or elsewhere, must be researched and proved or disproved by weight of evidence by you, the researcher.


Part I


    I started collecting data on the Davis clan trying to find the parents of my David Davis. My David may have come from Uriah Davis's line somewhere. I looked back and found postings on a Uriah Davis in Maryland. I found his Will dated 31 Oct 1767, and proved on 01 Feb 1768 on Ancestry. What caught my eye was the children: Uriah, William, and Meshack of whom I believe I have listed here. Also there was a Solomon Davis and a Joshua Davis who was probably the Solomon and Joshua listed in the 1800 Salisbury, Iredell Co., North Carolina Census along with Isaac and James Davis. There are many similarities here. I may be going out on a limb, but I believe many of the lines listed here are from Uriah Davis the elder in Maryland, and his wife Margaret. There are just way too many of the same names out there, so I decided to make a page so that it may help others on their search as well with the info I have. Going back to the 1st United States Census of 1790 Burke Co., North Carolina there are already several Davis families. Burke Co. was formed in 1777 from a part of Rowan Co., North Carolina. I will work on them in the order of the Census and follow that person as far as I can. Many of the Davis families that were listed in that Burke Co., Census were also in the 1800 Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census. Buncombe Co. was formed in 1791 from parts of Burke Co. and Rutherford Co., North Carolina.

Benjamin Davis

     First up is Benjamin Davis b: _____ - 1774 (per 1790 Census). His family was listed in the 1790 Burke Co., North Carolina Census Pg 89, Line 3 (1) with 5 males 16+, 3 males under 16, and 4 females.

    There are many Benjamin Davis in the 1800 Census. I did not find him in a Buncombe Co., North Carolina Census either. However, I found a deeds for Benjamin Davis. On 20 Apr 1803. Benjamin purchased 50 acres of land on the south fork of Hominy Creek including his own improvement, witnessed by Hardy Hightower (232). Also a deed from Joseph Hughey to Benjamin for 150 acres of land on Sandy Mush Creek, including the lower Cain Creek on 03 Oct 1805 (2). Benjamin was also a witness to a deed between Uriah Davis and Hardy Hightower on 18 Mar 1808. On 07 Feb 1809 Benjamin (of Buncombe Co.) purchased 50 acres of land on Sandy Mush Creek from Richard Price (233). I do believe this Benjamin could possibly be a brother of Uriah Davis. If anyone knows anything about Benjamin Davis born in _____ - 1774. I would love to hear from you.

Clement Davis

    Next up we have Clement Davis, b: 1755 (77 in 1832 Pension Records). Clement was a soldier during the Revolutionary War.

John purchased 100 acres of land on the No. fork of the French Broad River where Hezekiah Hardgrove once lived, mentions marker IB on an oak tree (261). Possibly the John that was mentioned as operating a ferry across the French Broad near the mouth of Newfound Creek in 1798 (46). There is so much information on John Davis's that it is hard to tell which John is which. In the Census records I tried to match them up by location and ages. Deeds I tried to do the same with locations. On 06 Dec 1799 a John purchased 200 acres of land located on the west side of the French Broad River about 50 poles above Ferry Landing (237).
