Son of Samuel Davis and Priscilla Davis (Hatch) Husband of Laura Davis (Finch) Father of Niram Purdy Davis
There is considerable confusion about the identity of this Samuel. Some family researchers have his middle initial as C, but the 1830 census lists his as B, with his stepmother and brothers Lewis and Hope at Parma, Monroe Co., NY. Hope and Lewis are still living there by 1840, but Samuel has disappeared.
Other point of confusion is the birth date. Some say he is the one born 1786, and others the one born 1790. The Ancestry tree does not attach him at all to these parents, but other trees attach both Samuels, which is clearly impossible, but which points to the ongoing uncertainty. Much works remains to be done to validate this identity.
