New INFO: William Davidson (died 1812; left a will in Botetourt) and Martha Baker (died 1829, per a Botetourt newspaper obit) moved from the Buckingham/Prince Edward Co., VA area to Botetourt Co., VA in 1774 (bought land from a John Murray, who was an officer who was killed shortly thereafter in Lord Dunsmore's War, I believe). This land became part of Rockbridge Co., VA in 1778, and then William and Martha (Baker) Davidson moved again to what was still Botetourt around 1782 (bought land there from a Mr. Greenlee). William and Martha apparently had 9 children (8 of these children were still living in 1812, per William's will, but only 2 of the 8 children were mentioned by name in that will):

1 Baker (married Elizabeth "Betsy" Womack; Baker died by 1805)
2 William "Junior" (married Jinny Davidson....from another Davidson family; APPARENTLY was the Captain William Davidson who died in Botetourt in 1829 at the age of 52...per a Botetourt newspaper obit)
3 Reverend Andrew Baker (married Susan Dorman; the Reverend died in 1861)
4 Joseph (married Jinny Wilson; Joseph died by 1814)
5 Probably Thomas (first wife is unknown; second wife was Mrs. Betsy Hagans; Thomas died by 1839)
6 Charlotte (married John Pitzer, Jr.)
7 Sarah/Sally (married Robert Davidson....from another Davidson family)
8 Ginny/Jane (married John McCartney)
9 Probably Elizabeth (had an "affair" with David Smith that produced a son and daughter who took "Davidson" as their last names)

I have traced this Davidson family with some confidence back to James City Co., VA (where a David Davidson and a William Davidson both died in 1687). I now have a "ton" of additional info on this overall Davidson family, if anyone is interested.
