[email protected] ________________ Subject: Davis Genealogy Thank you for writing. You didn't ask a question, so I am wondering if you wanted to see my genealogy or if you saw all you needed, or if you would like to share with me. I have very little on the Solomons, so I would be glad for something to add to my tree. I have a blog and you can see what I wrote the other day with Davis cemetery stones in Killingworth and tomorrow, I have several generations listed. ___________ Yes, I would like to see your Davis lineage and yes I will share mine with you. I cannot take credit for my info, it was done in 1991 by a friend who was a genealogist (now deceased), however, I believe it is fairly accurate as most of the early info agrees with your tree. You may use my e-mail address on your blog. By the way, what is a blog and how do I access it? I am 72 years young and not up on all the latest terminology, and very slow at typing. Thanks for the explanation of a blog and your blog site. When I first looked at your tree, I had the feeling I was looking at the work of a professional. Now I know it and I also know I am a rank amateur. I am humbled by the extent of your work and accomplishments. Yes, my first four or five generations of Davis are all in Killingworth, Ct.. We have no idea where Solomon came from or who his parents were. Loomis and Abell line came here from Lebanon, Ct. My Carpenter line came here from Mass., Potter line from Mass. and N.Y., and Stevens line from Orange Co., N.Y. ___________ From: French, Esther G. & Robert L. French, "The Griswold Family, The First Five Generations in America" 1990. Page 279. "Long Island was the home of a large family of Davises who were evidently descendants of John who came from Boston in 1655. A number of them settled in southern Connecticut: Guilford and Killingworth. There is a strong probability that the Davis family of Middlesex county is from one of these. Solomon was the first of the name in Killingworth. It is supposed he came from Guilford and settled on Pea Ridge, eastward from Guilford, about 1709. His wife was Sarah Hayton. Hayton Davis received a deed of land from his father Mar. 12, 1762. A deed to his san Ebenezer is recorded on Mar. 1783 and to his wife Elizabeth on Mar. 10, 1779. Elizabeth died June 1790." From: Cutter, William R., Genealogical and Family History of the State of Connecticut, (New York, Lewis Historical Publishing Co., 1911). Vol. 4: 1797. "According to family and local tradition, Solomon Davis, ancestor of this family, came to Killingworth, Connecticut, from Long Island. From him descended Lemuel Davis, who was the father of a son, Lemuel Davis, and he in turn was the son of Lewis Talcott Davis, who married Sarah, daughter of Joseph and Huldah (Bailey) Burr, married in 1803." Note several generations are left out!
