I am seeking any information anyone has on Davises in Florida from 1800-1850. Please respond if you have any information. I am especially interested in Davises in north Florida.
Thanks, Earl Davis

In answer to Earl Davis

There are numerous Davis on Gadsden and Leon Counties (Tallahassee) and a book on these Davises is available

Thanks, Bob, for your note. I'm fishing for info on a group of Davises who came to FLA about 1820s, 1830s from GA. They settled in Jefferson County, (Monticello) and stayed there until my generation began to scatter. I have a lot of material on the family since 1840, but am trying to work back to the GA background. My Davis names include: Francis W., Samuel, Willis Turner, Wilbone, Ann, Cynth(i)a and Edmund. Any help from anybody appreciated.

Mark Green,
Thanks for the information, but none of the names, dates or places ring a bell for me.
Most of my relatives are in the Tallahassee (Leon Co.) or Quincy(Gadsden Co.) area.
Thanks

L&S,
Bob Davis

Thanks, Mark,
I don't know if there is a tie-in with my Davises or not. Do you know the parents of Allen Davis? That would get me back where I need to go.
