Both the Lewis and the Carter County Stampers are descendants of "Pewter John" Stamper and Sally Stamper (both were Stampers). I would like to hear your feud stories. You might also want to check out the Stamper Web Page and join the Stamper list at

Through my maternal Grandmother Amelia Elizabeth Adams who married Roland Clinton Hamilton. These are the Stampers who were involved in the Stamper, Holbrook, Underwood War in Carter County. I have two accounts of that war.

Thank you for your response to my query.

I am also a descendant of James "Jessie" Davis. However, this is the first that I've ever heard of the Cherokee blood. Can you enlighten me? I have a great deal of info on descendants, but know very little about Jessie and Larrina themselves or their ancestors.

My fraternal Davis lineage is as follows:

* Jesse (James) Davis (1785) - m. Larrina Haney Davis
* David Davis (26 Sep 1815) - (Feb 1898) m. (25 Jan 1840) Allice Kilgore Davis (30 Dec 1819) - (1871)
* Stephen Davis (10 Aug 1843) - m. Valinda Rabourn Davis

* Elbert Davis (10 Sep 1885) - (6 Jun 1965) m. (1 Jul 1911) Dovie Erwin Davis (15 Nov 1894) - (19 Apr 1980)

* Ruby Davis Burnett (21 Oct 1914) - m. (27 Jan 1932) William "Willie" Lee Burnett (31 Aug 1911) - (1 Jun 1977)

*BILLY VAUGHN BURNETT (21 Feb 1937) - m. (24 Sep 1955) BETTY LOU MCGINNIS BURNETT (23 Feb 1939) -

* SHERRY JEANEENE BURNETT LOWE (15 Sep 1956) m. (18 May 1991) GARRETT RICHARD LOWE (30 Jan 1946)

My maternal Davis lineage is as follows:

* Jesse (James) Davis (1785) - m. Larrina Haney Davis
*Henry Oliver Davis (4 Sep 1834) - (8 Apr 1916) m. Sarah Meadows (20 Nov 1838) - (28 Dec 1922)

*Melvina Davis (1866) - (prior to 1893) - John Lawhorn (cir 1863) (they never married)

*Flora (Lawhorn) Davis (27 Sep 1883) - (10 Jul 1927) m. Alfard Staggs (5 Jun 1877) - (27 Oct 1938) {Flora was raised by Henry O. and Sarah)

*Sarah Staggs m. John Henry McGinnis

*BILLY VAUGHN BURNETT (21 Feb 1937) - m. (24 Sep 1955) BETTY LOU MCGINNIS BURNETT (23 Feb 1939) -

* SHERRY JEANEENE BURNETT LOWE (15 Sep 1956) - m. (18 May 1991) GARRETT RICHARD LOWE (30 Jan 1946)

I guess I'm what you might call Davis through and through.

What is your Davis lineage?

I'm anxious to hear from you.

God Bless.

Hi Connie,

Thanks for your response. To date, the Carter and Lewis County Staggs families have not been linked. I have no info on your Mary.
