The family history of James B. Davis and his wife Elizabeth Hawkins begin the generations on this page and pages that follow with his ancestors and descendants. He was the son of Charles Edwin Davis and Hannah Gaines. Welcome.

James B Davis was born between 26 Jun and 5 Dec of 1785 in Culpeper Co, Virginia and died on or before 1 May 1883, in Cass County, Illinois. Charles Edwin Davis his father moved the family to Jessamine County, Kentucky in 1796. He married Elizabeth Hawkins, daughter of John and Winny Hawkins, in Jessamine County, Kentucky on 16 Dec 1806. They lived in North Liberty, now Keene, Kentucky in 1830, taken from Page 212A of that year's census for Jessamine County, Kentucky. He moved his family to Illinois in 1835. Mom got me interested in family history, she is the Davis descendant of my family. Many origins are claimed for the name of Davis but the one I favor is that it originated from David in the Old Testament. I believe the origin of the name of David can be attributed to the Book of Ruth in the Old Testament in Chapter 4, Verses 13 - 22. I believe Davis is a name derived from the name of David, both in Wales and the Old Testament, as well as in Rev 22:16 and (verse 13) the alpha and the omega. Yes he is coming quickly (verse 20).
