Carol or Bill,
I just read the message about Theodorus Davis and Joanna Grimes with great interest. I am descended from Theodorus Davis, Sr. (wife unknown). Theodorus (b. abt 1775) was one of the first settlers in Macoupin Co., IL. One of the county histories states that Theodorus moved to Macoupin Co from St. Clair Co. about 1824.
Theodorus children (per the same history) are:
Theodorus Davis, Jr. md. Jane Burleson in Aug 1828 in what was then Greene Co., later became Macoupin Co.
John Little Davis
Beden (alt. spellings Beaden, Bidin, Belden) Davis b. 6 Aug 1809 in KY md. 26 June 1829 in Macoupin Co., IL to Mary Hodges b. 26 June 1811 in TN (my ancestor)
William H. H. (probably Henry Harrison) Davis
Oliver C. Porter Davis
Polly Davis md. David Gregory
Sallie Davis md. John Tomer
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
