William Devenport ( or perhaps, Davenport) married Nancy Catlett in Nov. 1808 - Washington Co., MD. I need to know which Davenport/Devenport family he belonged to. They supossedly had at least one son named John. Something happened to William (must have died) because Nancy then married my Gr-GR-Grandfather John Filson (prob. in VA) and had 8 children with him. There don't seem to be that many families of Davenports in MD. so I'd like to hear from any who have connections to MD. from the early 1700s - 1820.

Do you have any idea what happened to this William D. Devenport, Jr.? Did he marry, have children, etc.? What about William Sr.'s siblings? Do you know anything about them?

I guess there is not any "match" here since I don't see any reference to the MD. or VA. area. I feel that the William Devenport I am looking for was from a family of VA. or MD. and was probably born between 1780 and 1790. He married my 2nd Great Grandmother in 1808 in Washington Co., MD. Thanks for posting your information.

Judy, I really hope that you see this message at some point. I am desperately looking for more information on the Catlett/Davenport connection. I have a John Catlett Davenport (who is buried in VA) in my tree, and would love to connect the dots.. I currently have no idea how he got his middle name, and you may have just helped me see that there really is a connection.
