Some additional clarification about the family of Thomas Davis... The Thomas Davis about whom the book was written came to Bedford County, TN, about 1810-1811 from Virginia, along with one of his brothers, Henry Davis. They were in business together in Shelbyville for a time, and Thomas was the first mayor. Their parents were Benjamin Franklin Davis and his wife, Tabitha Rose, of Brunswick Co,, VA. Benjamin's parents were Henry Davis and his wife, Mary Marriott, of Surry Co., VA. This Davis line has been documented back to fairly early days of the Jamestown settlement.

Thomas Davis was married twice: 1) to Elizabeth (surname unknown), who may have been married earlier to a Chilcot; 2) Eliza Stevenson. There were children by both wives, most of whom survived to adulthood. Daughters of the first marriage married men named Augustus White, Henry Yandell, William Brame and John Salmon "RIP" Ford. Children of his second marriage grew up in Peoria, IL, where their mother moved to live near her family after Thomas Davis died in 1846. Surnames other than those already listed married the children (or grandchildren) who moved to Peoria.
