Stephen Hamilton Davis (b. abt 1816)

Classification: Query
Surnames: Davis/Lesley/Johnson
Does anyone have information on the parents of Stephen H. Davis? Here is what I have for him to date:

Born:
abt 1815/1816, Maury, Tennessee

Married:
6 Sep 1838, Greene Co., Missouri to MARTHA JANE LESLEY (b. April 1823 Maury, Tennessee)

Martha's parents were married in Maury Tennessee:
Spouse 1: Johnson, Charity
Spouse 2: Lasslay, Samuel
Marriage Date: 11 Mar 1822

~ 1850 Federal Census ~
Union, Benton, Missouri:
Stephen H. Davis (head)
Martha Davis (spouse)
7 Children
Samuel and Charity Lesley (Martha's parents)
Calvier Williams (org. document looks more like Calvin to me, but that's open to interpretation)

Note: there is another Davis family in the neighborhood (not sure if they are related) Henry and Lucretia (m.) with children Elijah and Roseanna

~ 1860 Federal Census ~
Benton, Missouri:
Stephen H. Davis (head)
Martha Davis (spouse)
13 children

Note: again, Davis neighbors: Anderson, Mary (Mary's birthplace listed as Tennessee), children Rebecca, Elizabeth, Charles, James, Josiah, Isaac and Lewis.

Stephen may have had a brother named Luke, as Stephen's son Christopher pops in on a 1870 Missouri Federal Census and Luke Davis (head of household) is about the right age to be an uncle of Christopher's.

Any leads that anyone can offer would be very appreciated!
