Surnames/tags: Davis Davies
How to Join
Please contact the project leader Lori Masucci or post a comment to the right. If you have any questions, just ask. Thanks!
This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.
- Begin adding location-specific pages for places where the Davis project will be working. You can claim the places you want to add sub-categorization for below, to avoid confusion. Indent once for country, twice for the next geographical level, etc. Add yourself to any location that has already been claimed to begin a collaboration.
- There are many orphaned Davis profiles. Would anyone like to volunteer to adopt some? Orphaned Davis Profiles
- Likewise, there are many unsourced Davis profiles. Anyone who would like to add sources to these profiles would be doing a great service to both the Davis surname and Wikitree in general Unsourced Davis Profiles
- Continue adding connections to Davis profiles until every Davis is linked into the main tree.

I have been trying to find my Davis ancestors for 12 years with no results; just too many of us! My great-great-grandfather was Jacob Davis, listed as Jake on his son's death certificate in South Carolina. I did find a census record from 1840 listing the family, but nothing further. Everything I have is entered on WikiTree. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, and I am happy to assist others in any way I can.

Martha J Davis is my 2nd great grandmother. Born in 1845 Kent County Delaware. Married Williams S Williams in 1861 Delaware. I am RE-researching her side right now. I am back to 1705 Del/Md. I believe these Davis' are part of the ones that moved on to Ohio. I am DNA matched to all of their children and sourced to Martha's 3 sets of grandparents with 2 of them DNA This would be great to fill in holes.

I descend from Charles Neeley Davis. I'm confident the family has spread far and wide, but my own branch came from Guilford County, N.C. to Grayson and Carroll Counties in Virginia. I have been working on this line and would like to start adding them to the name study. Thanks for starting this. Susan

My mother's maiden name is Davis. My late grandfather and especially his father were big into genealogy. I have quite a bit of tree information and will try to find time to sift through and update our line. The starting point is Greenville, Ill where my great grandfather was a Deacon. I also know that we have information which can be traced at least back to Roxbury, Mass. It will be several months until I have time to reengage with this project. Any information you may have in the meantime would be most appreciated.

My research so far shows that Eli had three older sisters and he was the only son. I don't think any of his sisters married.
