Surnames: Davis/Lesley/Johnson
Does anyone have information on the parents of Stephen H. Davis? Here is what I have for him to date:

Born:
abt 1815/1816, Maury, Tennessee

Married:
6 Sep 1838, Greene Co., Missouri to MARTHA JANE LESLEY (b. April 1823 Maury, Tennessee)

Martha's parents were married in Maury Tennessee:
Spouse 1: Johnson, Charity
Spouse 2: Lasslay, Samuel
Marriage Date: 11 Mar 1822

~ 1850 Federal Census ~
Union, Benton, Missouri:
Stephen H. Davis (head)
Martha Davis (spouse)
7 Children
Samuel and Charity Lesley (Martha's parents)
Calvier Williams (org. document looks more like Calvin to me, but that's open to interpretation)

Note: there is another Davis family in the neighborhood (not sure if they are related) Henry and Lucretia (m.) with children Elijah and Roseanna

~ 1860 Federal Census ~
Benton, Missouri:
Stephen H. Davis (head)
Martha Davis (spouse)
13 children

Note: again, Davis neighbors: Anderson, Mary (Mary's birthplace listed as Tennessee), children Rebecca, Elizabeth, Charles, James, Josiah, Isaac and Lewis.

~~~~
Stephen may have had a brother named Luke, as Stephen's son Christopher pops in on a 1870 Missouri Federal Census and Luke Davis (head of household) is about the right age to be an uncle of Christopher's.

Any leads that anyone can offer would be very appreciated!

Surnames: Jones, Moore, Buford,
Not much help but looking through Lynnville Cemetery records in Giles Co, I found Riley Davis Moore b 1908, died Feb 12, 1983 age 75.
Also found Buford D. Moore b 3 Sept 1907, died 12 Mar 1983 in same cemetery.
For what it may be worth there was a Somerset Moore 'said' was born 26 Oct 1782 Lunenburg Co VA, died before June 1814, age 31. He married Charlotte Buford on 15 Mar 1814, Wales, Giles Co TN. Children were; James 1800-1805/ Mary b in Williamson Co TN, d 1840/ Larkin b 29 Dec 1801 TN- d Apr 1880 Travis Co TX, / Keziah P. born bef 1810, died 1870 LA. Married Alexander Sidney Jones 1803-1834.
Hope this opens a new door for you. Not much though.
