Davis Genealogy - South Eastern North Carolina
Davis > South Eastern North Carolina
Welcome to my Davis genealogy pages. I am interested in
the Davis surname in South Eastern North Carolina, primarily in the counties
of Brunswick and Columbus. Since this is such a common surname I have
not researched them in other nearby counties.

What's New -
Cornelius "Neal" Davis (c1805-after 1882) and
wife Tabitha Jones lived near the Delco community in what is now
Columbus County, North Carolina. This area was part of Brunswick
County for most of their lives. I have not been able to determine
who Neal's parents were. When he was just 10 years old Neal was
deeded land by one Jonah Keith. This suggests a familial
relationship, but I don't know the nature of it yet.
Mahala Davis (c1845-after 1880) never married as far as
can be determined. She had one child out of wedlock, the father
unknown, though it could be W. R. Skipper or William Smith, Jr, both
of whom signed as bondsman for the bastardy bond.
Mary Catherine Davis (1866-c1902) married William Henry
Watson (1852-c1902) in 1882 in Columbus Co., NC.
3 Mar 2014 - Discovered that I had accidentally deleted my
Davis web pages (both online and original offline copies), so took this
opportunity to update the look to my new standard style.
- Counties included. If a county isn't listed, I have not done any Davis research
there. Clicking on the link will open a search window showing results for
Davis + that county name. New updates may take a few days to appear in
Brunswick - thru 1880
