!NOTES:Jacob and Susanna Davis have a tombstone at the Campbell-Sherrill Cemetery, but it is much newer than any original stone they may have had. I don't know who placed it or when, but it was at least a couple of generations after their deaths. I also don't know if it replaced an old stone. Oddly, the newer stone was lost for a number of years, a tree having grown up around it and covered it over. A storm knocked down the tree exposing the stone again.;


!FAMILY BIBLE RECORDS:
The William Carpenter Family Bible contains the Names and Birth Dates for Jacob and Susanna's children. The Marion Taylor Davis Family Bible contains the marriages for those same children. These are cited in "The Davis Family Record" p. 10-12.;


!NOTES:Jacob Davis's Birth Date is unknown. "1801" is carved on his T/S, but that stone was obviously placed many years after his death, so can't be relied upon. None of his census entries agree with an 1801 birth year:
1850 = 50 ca 1799/1800
1860 = 57 ca 1802/1803
1870 = 67 ca 1802/1803
Since the 1860 and 1870 entries agree perfectly with one another, I'd suggest he was born ca 1802/03 instead of in 1801. However, pending the discovery of a Family Bible record, we will probably never know for certain.;


!NOTES:Jacob Davis is not included in the Court House Copy of his father William Davis's Will for some reason. We don't have an original copy of the Will, only the court house copy, but from estate records it is certain he was in the original, but got left out of the transcription by accident. He is named in an 4 Oct 1873 probate record that names the heirs of William Davis (see below).

Jacob Davis is named as an heir in the William Davis Estate Records filed in Graham County, NC (1849).

Jacob is William's son as proven by statements of Jacob's son Isaac who told many stories about his grandfather William.

Jacob Davis signed, along with his mother Frances, as an heir to Mathias Carpenter in the 1835 division of the Carpenter estate in Ashe County. ;
