Additional Information

Cornelius Davis:

Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 4th Great Grand Parent.;


!NOTES:Neal Davis was listed as white on the 1850, 1860, 1870 and 1880 census, but back in 1840 he was listed as "Free Colored". That could be a census error, or perhaps he was dark skinned and of some mixed ethnicity. If so, he could be a mix of white and black, white and Native American, or some combination of all three, or perhaps something else entirely.;


!NOTES:Cornelius Davis's parents aren't proven, but it seems very likely he is a son of Richard Davis because -
1. Richard was "free colored" as was Cornelius (at least per 1840 census)
2. Both lived on Livingston's Creek.
3. Associated with same families, etc.
4. Fits very well.

Tabitha Jones:

Notes:

!NOTES:Marty Grant's 4th Great Grand Mother;


!NOTES:Possibly a daughter of James Jones who owned land on Livingston Creek, or of his probable son Henry Jones, both of whom vanished after 1810.


!NOTES:Maiden name Tibitha Jones per D/C of daughter Dorothy. Informant was Joe Bordeaux, Dorothy's son.
- I once *speculated* that Tabitha was a Wallace based only on the fact that she was born in SC and a Henry Wallace, also born SC, was her neighbor. This information is "out there" now, but it was highly speculative. We have a source for Jones, so I've changed her maiden name to that from Wallace.


!NOTES ON BIRTHPLACE:Contradictory sources, all but one lists NC. Outlier is SC.
1850 Census NC
1860 Census SC
1870 Census deceased
1880 Census entry for her known children list their mother's birth place as -
William NC
Leonard NC
Mahala NC
Tabitha NC
1900 Census entry for her known children list their mother's birth place as -
Leonard NC
Tabitha NC
* Based on the above, I conclude Tabitha was born in NC. If she's a child of Henry or James, then she was born right in the same region (Livingston Creek) where she lived and died.;


!NOTES:Ivey Jones (c1819 NC) just 12 households from the Davis family in 1850. Ivey and wife Elizabeth (c1820) and several children. Could be related to Tabitha.;


!NOTES:David Jones (c1818 NC) just 6 houses away in 1860. He was listed as mulatto living with another family.;


!NOTES:James Jones (c1811 NC) just 17 housesholds away in 1860. Could be related.;
