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 are unknown. He could be a son of Thomas Davis who was in Brunswick early on and had an apparent son Neal's age. No proof they are even related though. Thomas Davis was listed as Free Colored, as was Neal (in 1840), so that might show a connection.;

!CENSUS:1810;

!DEED: 7 Jan 1815 Brunswick Co, NC H-6 Jonah KEITH of Brunswick Co, NC to Neale DAVIS of same, for $17, north side Livingstone Creek, 34a, part of land patented to William KEITH. adj Samuel VINES line, Hugh WADDLES line. S: Jonah Keith. Wit: Solomon (S) TAYLOR Sr, Solomon TAYLOR. Recorded Jan term 1818;

Tabitha Jones:

Notes:

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

!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: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.;
