Thomas Davis is believed to be the descendant of John Davis born 1599 in England and arrived in Virginia in 1623 in the ship John and Francis. Thomas Davis was born on 8 Aug 1693 probably in Northumberland County Virginia. He married Sarah Fielding the daughter of Edward Fielding Esquire and Winnifred Conway Fielding.

      All of his children moved to Kentucky before 1800. Can not find will for James Carter Davis. The 1793 will of James Davis is not James Carter Davis but perhaps his son's will who passed away in 1799. I did get a copy of that will but does not name children except as "all my children".

Verified the Ancestry record that shows d. ...1787 means "dated" not died by Lib of VA on Line record.
