Margaret, Do you have any of these Davy's going into Tennessee? My ggrandfather and gggrandfather were both Richard Davy's and we believe our ggggrandfather was a Joseph Davy. I have not been able to verify any connection past the 2 Richards that were in Hardin Co., Tennessee in the late 1700's through the late 1800's. Believe they maybe came into Tennessee from the Carolina's. My mother, who was the Davy, said she was told they came in through Louisiana from France.? Lot of Davy's in Louisiana but I have not connected any of them either.
