Surnames: Davenport Burnley Barksdale
The decendents of John Davenport, son of Martin of Hanover Cnty VA are desperately seeking decendents of Jack Smith Davenport and Lucy Barksdale (later Burnley) to help solve a family mystery.

Jack Smith Davenport was born around 1745 in Hanover Cnty VA. He married Lucy Barksdale in 1772 and died in April, 1781, shortly after being wounded at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in NC. We believe that Lucy and Jack had several children, 3 of them boys: Jack Smith (John) Jr, William, and Richard. Lucy remarried; his name was Henry Burnley. This was sometime in 1782. We believe that the whole family moved to Hancock Cnty, GA shortly thereafter.

So, we are looking for decendents of Davenports, or perhaps Burnleys from Hancock Cnty GA in the late 1700s or early 1800s. My understanding is that the Davenport DNA project does have some scholarship money to help with the cost of DNA testing for qualified decendents, but don't hold me to it.

You can contact the Davenport DNA project directly or reply to in this thread and I will try to connect you.

Hello Mr. Davenport, I was wondering if I could get the info o the DNA testing ? My grandmother is a Davenport. I have several cousins that come from an unbroken line of Davenport from Charles. We desend from a mulatto Davenport named Charles Davenport. He was half black half white, John Davenport was his father. He was owned by John Davenport that married Nnacy Davis. His wife Chaney Davenport was a slave of William Davis , Nancy Davenport dad. When William died he gave Chaney, her sister, and her mother to John Davenport spouse of Nancy Davenport (Davis). I have church records from when Charles, Chaney, John, and Nnacy joined Mountain Creek Baptist church in Harris county GA. I know also that John Davenport is related to Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemmings. Charles and Chaney were the only two slaves aloud to join the Church. John Davenport showed favortism to Charles and Chaney because he was his wife. He also named them first on the will to be given to Nancy. I would be glad for my cousins to take the test to answer your question.
