"Benjamin Davis (I) died in the town of Culpeper (first called Fairfax) in the summer of 1763. [CCMB 1763-1764, Prichard (1930)] No will for him has been found, but strong indirect evidence from primary records indicates that, in addition to Daniel Jarrell‘s wife Mary, Benjamin‘s children include John Davis (c1728-1808), William Davis (c1730-1823) [MISTAKE -- wrong William], James Davis (c1732-1824), Benjamin Davis (II, 1736-1797), and Sarah Davis (c1738-c1820, wife of Thomas Terry, c1730-1804).... The 1817 Madison County, Virginia will of James Davis does prove directly that the siblings include at least John Davis, James Davis, Benjamin Davis, Sarah Terry, and Mary Jarrell.

"James Davis... bequeathed 130 acres, $100, and two slaves plus ―their increase‖ from the date of his will, to his (and Mary Jarrell‘s) ―nephew William Terry. William, born 1780, was the youngest son of James Davis‘ (and Mary‘s) sister Sarah Davis and husband Thomas Terry, and had lived all his life next door to his uncle James. 
"By September 1775, Mary Jarrell‘s brother Benjamin Davis (II) and brother-in-law Thomas Terry (husband of their sister Sarah Davis Terry) had bought and settled on land adjacent to James Davis and also near the Rucker‘s, about 10 miles northwest along Cave‘s Road where Daniel and Mary lived by at least the early 1780‘s. [CDBH:131] ... Angus and John Rucker‘s nephew (and Ephraim Rucker‘s grandson) Larkin Rucker married Thomas and Sarah Davis Terry‘s daughter (and Mary Jarrell‘s niece) Lucy Terry in 1815. [Madison Marriage Register 1, Reel 27, LVA]"
