Marcella's Family Tree

Descendant Research Information is from the Archives of: Marcella Davis-Burks, Fred G. & Barbara Sellars Davis, Horace Anders, Jamie Anders Tate, Margaret Garland Timbs, Ray Markland, David Davis, Louise Davis Odom, C G Doc Sellers, Minnie Davis Garland, Margaret Rhyne Whitehead, Paul E. Garland, & Sharon Barton.

We were all confused here for a while. Ray Markland helped me work it out. This is what we think ...

We think it all began with a Thomas Davis from VA who had a son John Brown Davis ...
 
John Brown Davis - Virginia had sons Asa Sr. who moved to Henderson Co. TN and Charlie who moved to Carter CO. (Limestone Cove / Davis Springs) TN.
 
Asa Sr. from Hendersonville had son Asa Jr. who move to Texas, became a preacher, started several churches, maybe moved to Arizona and dies in his 40's. He had a son, David Carter Davis who was in Arizona. This is confusing on some of the on line ancestry genealogy charts you see ... be careful.
 
Charlie Davis who moved to Carter Co. TN had a son Asa by his first wife and after haveing most of his children later married Martha Denton. Asa continued to live in Carter County and married Susanna Whitehead. They also had a son named David Carter Davis. (This Asa is my GGGrandfather through his son James R. Davis.)
 
Many of the names are repeated several times in the families. It is important to have birth, death & spouses to help identify them. When you get you line worked out let me know and I will post it for you!
