I am trying to find the parents of Sylvestre Davis (b. ca. 1847, Ohio). Can't find him in the 1850 or 1860 Census of Ohio or Indiana. He was connected to the wrong father (Peter, who I disconnected), a mistake endlessly recopied that is made on almost all the online trees. Sylvestre's mother was not Mary Ann (Lewis) Davis (wife of Peter), but rather Mary Ann ("Filigel") Davis. Her maiden name "Filigel" appears on his death certificate. The name Filigel is presumably a misspelling. For more information, see the four comments that I have posted on Sylvestre's profile.
