Hello list,
   " Davis is one of the oldest Welsh family names. The line can be
traced
for many centuries and is said to include King Cole and Cadwaldar. The
motto
of the family is 'With God as a Leader and a Sword as a Comrad".
    Of  the many Davis emigrants to America the family which later
became
the most notable is that of Evan Davis, Samuel Davis and Joseph Davis;
three
brothers who emigrated from Cardiff, Wales, about 1730,. Evan Davis and
Samuel Davis landed at Philadelphia: Joseph Davis went what was then the
Middle West.
    Some time after 1761, the exact date not being known,Evan Davis
emigrated from Pennsylvania, to Georgia. He married while still in
Pennsylvania, Mrs. Mary Emory Williams, a widow. Her father was Joseph
Emory. By her first marriage this lady had two sons, Daniel Williams and
Isaac William, both of whom were soldiers in the Revolution . It was due
to
their participation in  the war that their young half -brother, Samuel
Davis
also joined the forces of the revolution, being sent by their mother to
join
them
    Evan Davis and his wife (Mary Emory Davis), had at least one son,
Samuel
Davis, mentioned above, who was born in the Pennsylvania in 1756. this
Samuel Davis, who was in the revolution, was the father of President
Jefferson Davis of the Confederate States of American".

 >> Isaac Davis Jr. is son of Isaac b. 1723 m. Eliz. Kincheloe >>

I checked your web page, and besides Elizabeth and Mollie there
are other Davis/Kincheloe connections.

Elizabeth bn. 1726 in Prince William Co. VA md. Isaac Davis abt 1747.
She is the dau. of John Kincheloe, bn. abt 1691-94 in Richmond Co. VA,
md. abt 1718 Elizabeth Canterbury, d. bef 24 Mar 1746 Pr. William Co.
Elizabeth Canterbury bn. abt 1695 Richmond Co., dau. of John Canterbury
and Ruth Williams (dau. of Roger Williams & Joane).  Elizabeth's brother
William Kincheloe, bn. 26 May 1736 Pr. William Co., d. 10 Oct 1788 Nelson
Co. KY, md. Mollie White.  In his will (Nelson Co. KY Wills 1785-1820,
Will Book A, p. 321) he mentions his wife Mollie, sons Thomas, Stephen,
Lewis, Elias, Jesse & William, and daus. Peggy Davis, Mollie Davis,
Clary & Sally.  2 of the witnesses are Jesse Davis and Travis Davis.
Peggy md. Travis Davis, Mollie(Mary) md. Warren Davis, and Clarissa
(Clary) md. Isaac Davis.  William's oldest son Thomas Ludwell Kincheloe
md. Nancy Edwards, his son Phillip K. of Wright Co. MO md. Caroline
Stith, and their son George Stith Kincheloe md. as his 2nd wife a
Rachel Davis.  Is the Isaac who md. Clarissa K. also a son of Isaac, Jr.?

Most of this info was sent to me by Helen Payton of Charleston, SC and I
haven't had time to run it all down, so I can't vouch for all of it.  The will
is
for real and the info on Phillip K. of Wright Co. is from the Wright Co.
Heritage Book which are not always dependable.  Also where does
Travis Davis fit in ?  I assume that Elizabeth Canterbury's mother is
supposedly a dau. of the Roger Williams.  I've been meaning to check
that out.
