According to book "Heritage of Ashe Co. NC" George DAVIS was born in Mecklenburg Co. NC 22 Dec 1765 and married Sarah McELROY (b 1762) The family moved first to Wilkes Co., Surry Co. and back to Wilkes Co. NC by 1790's. I believe Sarah was probably a daughter of John McElroy/Martha who purchased land on Waxhaw Cr. from Robert Davis Jr. in 1772 and were neighbors of the DAVIS family. Robert Jr. had a brother named George but he was an adult in 1772 (signed as witness to the 1772 deed) so is more likely the George who married Sarah McElroy was a grandson of Robert Sr. (who d. 1770) Anyone have info on Robert Sr.'s descendants? He supposedly was married to Ann PICKENS - he moved to Mecklenburg 1753 from Augusta Co. VA, and his children married into the CALDWELL & WALKUP families - also associated with CROCKETT, CALHOUN and other VA Scot Irish families.
