Parents of Thomas Davis (1807?-1843-07-25).

0 votes
Family tradition (always unreliable) says he was a ship captain who died in bed at home in New Haven, Connecticut.  He married Harriet Newell Rich on 1832-07-25 and they were the father of Theodore Rich Davis, for whom I was named.   I have considerable evidence that he was a man of some substance, so it is particularly odd that I nhave not been able to find a specific birth date nor either of his parents.

(I thought I asked this question several days ago, but it has never shown up, so I am trying again.)

  • Name: Thomas Davis 1

I have not seen the Jacobus article, possibility this site has him mixed with another Thomas Davis (another site says this Thomas according to Jacobus is Deaf)


"Connecticut, Deaths and Burials, 1772-1934," Thomas Davis, 1843

His son must see:
