Classification: Query
Surnames: DAVIS, SALTER
James W. Davis b. Abt. 1853, GA is one of the sons of Henderson Davis & Julia E. Salter. His Brother, Caswell Henderson Davis, b. Abt. 1854, GA is my GGF. The 1880 Cooke Co., TX census lists both brothers in Cooke Co. Would love to hear from Davis cousins who descend fro, James W. Davis and wife Mary.

Here is what we have so far on this family:
