I don't know. I know his father was Evan or Evin and his mother was Elizabeth Proffitt. He had a son named Robin or Robert that married Rebecca Lovely. This is all I have. He was my GGGrandfather so any info will help.

Elizabeth Proffitt married Evan Davis on July 22, 1811 (Bond of Floyd Co., KY). Elizabeth born about 1785 in North Carolina. She was the daughter of Sylvestor Proffitt and Nancy Tompkins who were married in Wilkes Co., NC.

Their children were:

Pleasant Davis supposed to have died in Civil War
Larkin Davis born about 1814 in Ky
Tempie Davis born about 1815 married HEnry Combs
Jerry (Henry) Davis married Miriam Little
William Davis born about 1819 married Sarah Carpenter
Rebecca Davis born about 1817 married Stephen Carpenter
Robert Davis born about 1824 married Polly Hagins
Elizabeth Davis born about 1826 married George Barnett
James Davis may have died young.

Elizabeth Davis a widow age 65 is listed in the Breathit Co., Kentucky 1850 Census on Page 7, household 95. Also in her household were Robert age 26, Rebecca age 33 and Elizabeth age 24. Evan and Elizabeth Davis were listed in the Floyd Co., KY census in 1820, Page 13; 1830 Census of Perry Co., Ky, Page 243. Elizabeth, John and William Davis were listed on the 1840 tax list of Breathit Co., KY.

Even thought my last name is also Davis, I am not from this line; but researched it because of the Proffitt surname. I have the name and address of two direct descendants of this line if you care to write to them.

Thanks,

Thank you for your info Fred it was very helpful. I was also wondering if you have anything on Evan or Sarah such as their parents and grandparents. I have not been able to locate any of this info and because my schedule stays pretty tied up I haven't the ability to travel to find this info. Once again thank you very much!

Hi:

I don't have the parents for Evan Davis or Sarah Carpenter. There are those two contacts that I mentioned who, I think have done extensive research on this particular line.

If you will contact me direct at the address below, I will give the mailing address of the two researchers that shared information with me several years ago. They may have the answers to your questions.

Thanks,

Fred Davis
