The Davis Family Genealogy

Davis

The Davis Family Genealogy describes the family lines of Henry Davis, the paternal great-grandfather of James P. Keller

Jim's grandmother, Ida Davis (1867-1912), was born in Marion County, Indiana, the daughter of Henry Davis (1836-1889) and Harriet Adelaide McWhorter(1840-1932).

Henry Davis was one of seven children of James and Sarah Sawyer Davis.   James Davis and Sarah Sawyer were both born in North Carolina, although some family tradition indicates that they came from Virginia.  It may be that, while born in North Carolina, their parents came there from Virginia.  To date I have been unable to trace their origins in North Carolina. Death certificates of three of their children seem to indicate that the marriage of James Davis and Sarah Sawyer may have been the second one for both of them and that the first five children were from James Davis' first marriage and the youngest two, David and Bartholomew, were Sarah's from her first marriage.  If so, James and Sarah would have been married in Indiana between 1844 and 1850.  However, no information has yet been found to confirm these earlier marriages.
