Thank you for your response to my query.

I am also a descendant of James "Jessie" Davis. However, this is the first that I've ever heard of the Cherokee blood. Can you enlighten me? I have a great deal of info on descendants, but know very little about Jessie and Larrina themselves or their ancestors.

My fraternal Davis lineage is as follows:

* Jesse (James) Davis (1785) - m. Larrina Haney Davis
* David Davis (26 Sep 1815) - (Feb 1898) m. (25 Jan 1840) Allice Kilgore Davis (30 Dec 1819) - (1871)
* Stephen Davis (10 Aug 1843) - m. Valinda Rabourn Davis

* Elbert Davis (10 Sep 1885) - (6 Jun 1965) m. (1 Jul 1911) Dovie Erwin Davis (15 Nov 1894) - (19 Apr 1980)

* Ruby Davis Burnett (21 Oct 1914) - m. (27 Jan 1932) William "Willie" Lee Burnett (31 Aug 1911) - (1 Jun 1977)

*BILLY VAUGHN BURNETT (21 Feb 1937) - m. (24 Sep 1955) BETTY LOU MCGINNIS BURNETT (23 Feb 1939) -

* SHERRY JEANEENE BURNETT LOWE (15 Sep 1956) m. (18 May 1991) GARRETT RICHARD LOWE (30 Jan 1946)

My maternal Davis lineage is as follows:

* Jesse (James) Davis (1785) - m. Larrina Haney Davis
*Henry Oliver Davis (4 Sep 1834) - (8 Apr 1916) m. Sarah Meadows (20 Nov 1838) - (28 Dec 1922)

*Melvina Davis (1866) - (prior to 1893) - John Lawhorn (cir 1863) (they never married)

*Flora (Lawhorn) Davis (27 Sep 1883) - (10 Jul 1927) m. Alfard Staggs (5 Jun 1877) - (27 Oct 1938) {Flora was raised by Henry O. and Sarah)

*Sarah Staggs m. John Henry McGinnis

*BILLY VAUGHN BURNETT (21 Feb 1937) - m. (24 Sep 1955) BETTY LOU MCGINNIS BURNETT (23 Feb 1939) -

* SHERRY JEANEENE BURNETT LOWE (15 Sep 1956) - m. (18 May 1991) GARRETT RICHARD LOWE (30 Jan 1946)

I guess I'm what you might call Davis through and through.

What is your Davis lineage?

I'm anxious to hear from you.

God Bless.
