I am interested in joining the group to share research concerning one or two of my lineages. My ancestor, Thomas Davis / Davids, born c. 1685 in Albany (of Barnabas Davis II, born c. 1640 in MA) married twice(?) in NY / old New Netherlands; his children were (at least) Robert, John, Catherine, Thomas (born Albany, later of Plymouth), and David (born Albany, later of Edgartown). Thomas II and David appear in the Dutch Reformed Church records, baptized in 1722 and 1724 to "Thomas and Mary Davids." Thomas Sr. removed from NY to North Carolina about 1730 and lived in both Chowan and Scuppernong, but sent the youngest boys back to New England in the late 1730s for schooling / apprenticeships. His 1762 NC will connects all of his living children in New England and Carolina. I have conflicting data from published and manuscript records about Thomas' wife and the mother of the children, which I hope to resolve. Names of the women include Mary, Maicke Millington (? of Thomas Millington and Trynte Wendel), and Katarina / Caterina / Catherine Wendell (a very common name); the wife's name at his death was Elizabeth. One marriage date was c. 1709, according to one MS.
