Have you got anything on the infamous John Davis, who was arrested for treason after being capture after the
CLAYPOOL REBELLION in early 1780's. He was sentenced to hang, but he managed to escape.
He was my 4th great=grandfather, but I don't know his parents or wifes name, or his children except for Maria
and Elizabeth. Elizabeth is my 3rd great grandmother and
she married Martin Luther CARR in 1793 in HARDY CO. She had to be living with someone before the wedding - family or friends, but I can't find anything on them.
John Davis was a double spy during RevWar, and he had
2 brothers in the army too. I found him in a pension book
years ago, but someone stole it from the library before It
was confirmed that he was the John I was looking for.
Thank-you or any help you could give.
