  • Seeking descendants of James of Martin of Davis

    I am seeking male patrilineal descendants of James Davenport Sr, son of Martin Davenport Sr, son of Davis Davenport (latter two on VATax Rolls of 1704). You will be a descendant of either James Jr, as I am, or Jesse of Charlottesville, Albemarle County, VA. Jesse's widow moved to Georgia in the 1820s.
    If you can satisfy me that you are descended from Jesse son of James Sr, I may be willing to pay for your 12-marker test.
    You may contact me at billdavenport@hotmail.com or mfhwd@wiu.edu for further information.
    Harbert William (Bill) Davenport

    I'm just a casual observer here. I have a Taylor line of Virginia in colonial times that is mysterious. I noticed casually that General Maxwell D (for Davenport) Taylor could be somehow connected. Anyway his middle name might interest you.

      Well, maybe I'm not just a casual observer after all. In my latest hypothetical direct maternal line that brick walls at a "Lee", I have a female "Davenport" (on the other side of the brick wall). "Graves" and "Settles" are also there. I don't have the specifics at hand right now. It's VA > KY, and eventually my maternal line goes to IN and beyond.
