12/13/2010- Finally added the Probate Records from Jackson County that I copied in the County court house in Scottsboro several years ago. The probabe information is Dated NoveM 9, 1866. I also have added a copy of the marriage license for Nancy Davis to William Hill. She married him after Samuel B Davis (Sr) died. Also added a marriage license for another Samuel B Davis and Nancy Cardine Davis who were cousins as I understand.

The license is of a Samuel Davis and Salley Cardine Davis. Also please note that Samuel Baker B. Davis who was the witness was married to the daughter of Daniel G Davis. There is a relationship between Daniel G. Davis and Samuel Baldwin Davis (father of Samuel Baker B. Davis)somewhere.. just need to find it. License is in below links.

9/22/03- Great News... Thanks to one of my fellow Davis researcher we have new updates to Samuels's father/mother and grandfather. William was Samuel's Grandfater, and Henry Martin Davis was Samuel's father.
Willam Davis was born 1740 in Mecklenbur Co, NC Wife Unknown
Henry was born 8/27/1767 in Mecklenburg Co, NC and died 8/18/1857 in Bellefonte, Jackson Co, Al. Wife was Margaret Price. Henry married Margaret abt. 1790 in Rutherford Co, NC. She was born abt. 1770 and tiet between 1810-1818. Samuel Baldwin Davis was their son. I will be updating my webpage to include details of all Samuels relatives, brother, uncles, etc.
"July 8, 2002 Update - went to Jackson County and found some need probate information on Samuel Baldwin Davis (S.B. Davis). Will update my web page with information as soon as possible"
This family tree is being updated by Randy Davis. The purpose of this is to document my ancestors and those of my wife. I'm new at this so don't take all this as 100% accurate. Use it as a guide. Also, let me know if there are errors or if you have information to share. My hope is this will be a guide to all my kin that have an interest in finding their roots. If you find a connection, please let me know at email@example.com.
