I found more information since my last DAVIS post.
Here is my DAVIS et al. info..... and finding more recently.
I just discovered the parents of my gg Grandfather Nathaniel DAVIS, b ca. 1858 were Joel DAVIS, b. 1814 Warwick, Orange Co. d. 1901 in Erin Chemung Co., NY and Matilda COLE, b. 1827 d. 1908 in Erin, Chemung Co. NY. They lived in Warwick Orange Co. NY and the DAVIS's seem to have been there for at least 3 or 4 generations. I find that Joel DAVIS and Matilda COLE DAVIS had at least 8 children, mostly boys and
that at least 2 of them were born in PA.
Nathaniel married Hattie May DRAKE daughter of Thomas DRAKE and Mary McELROY, I have not been able to find information on them in Orange Co., except that there were DRAKEs and McELROYs there. They also seem to be connected to POWELL and QUACKENBUSCH families there.
Getting back to my DAVIS line, I forgot to add that I have one additonal generation going back to probably 1889 or earlier. William DAVIS was the father of my Joel DAVIS.I recently received some great and helpful information from a fellow DAVIS researcher that there were two DAVIS brothers who fought in the Revolution from Warwick, Orange Co. NY. Nathaniel DAVIS and Benjamin DAVIS. The gentleman who sent me the information has a significant amount of info. on
previous generations in Orange Co. and Sussex Co. NJ and even going back to England. Please contact me and I will send his e-mail address.
Look forward to sharing info on these families.
