Bill Dunkley (Dunkley-71) and N Fanning (Fanning-475) are co-operating on the clean up of this profile. They have adopted a number of orphaned profiles in order to facilitate this process. They are direct descendants of either the Davy Family or the Klein Family. Both are pre-1700 certified and Bill is a member of the NNS group.
The variations in spelling of the last name in the pre-1700 profiles (parents are PPP'd) complicates the procedure. 1700 seems to be the point at which the various branches determine their spelling preference. We are therefore using the spelling that is most prevalent for each sibling's descendants.
Other PM's will be consulted of course and if anyone has proof of LNAB, before or after we clean up this profile, please feel free to contact one of us. We will also inform the NNS if it appears to conflict with Ancestors of these profiles, even though they are Post-1700.
Thanks from both.
Note: Families often found themselves on opposite sides of the conflict during the American Revolution. The Davy/Davids/Davis family was a typical example. Of the 4 brothers with known children, 2 of them (John & Peter) had Loyalist leanings & 2 others (Thomas & Ludwig) had Patriot leanings.

NOTE: On Rootsweb profile (above) there are discrepancies regarding several of the birth years.
The Rootsweb link also mentions "Jost" in place of "Joseph". This list of Prisoners of War mentions a "daughter of the late Jost Davis" taken hostage in 1780:
