DAVIS
Looking for Cherokee Indian in family Underhill DAVIS married Dollie of and from Tallapoosa County, AL and was on the rootsweb world connect project ancestors of Craig Rice and related families ID:118858. They had the following children Francis Ann DAVIS born 25 dec 1830 Tallapoosa Co., Al, Harris DAVIS born about 1835 in GA, Darling DAVIS born about 1842 in GA and Elizabeth Davis born about1845 in GA ,and my great grandfather John P. DAVIS born about 1850 inAL. I think that this Dollie is my Cherokee Indian and can find no trace of her before this or after. She is not listed on theTallapoosa County Census of 1860 which lists Matilda Riiley born in SC. I would love for someone to advise me as to how to proceed. My mother thinks Underhill is a Cherokee name and I have found Underhills back to England and beyond. Underhilll Davis was a soldier who fought in the Indian Wars in AL (page 354, Index to Volunteer Soldiers in Indian Wars and Disturbances 1815-1858 of the 1st Ga in the Creek war).

I am looking for Matilda Riley who is thought to be of the Cherokee Indian Tribe. She moved from somewhere in SC to Wilkinson Co., Ga and married Underhill Ellis Davis in March 1828. They had 6 children-5 were born in Ga and the last was born in Tallapoosa Co., Al in 1850 was my ggrandfather, John Pinkney Davis. I would dearly love to find my Riley roots. I would appreciate any help. Barbara Davis Franklin angelswings@lowcountry.com

Message: PHYLLIS, I HOPE YOU RECEIVED THE E-MAIL I SENT YOU REGARDING JIMMY BLACKWELDER IN TALLAPOOSA CO. I CAN NOT REMEMBER OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD THE CONNECTION TO MY FAMILY, BUT IT IS IN MY DATA BASE. WHOEVER THIS JIMMY IS, HE IS A VERY NICE AND SWEET PERSON. HE SHOWED SOMEONE AROUND THE TALLAPOOSA CO. WHERE HIS FAMILY LIVED AND WHERE OURS DID AS WELL. HE WAS LOOKED FOR WHEN THEY VISITED AGAIN MANY YEARS LATER, BUT COULD NOT FIND HIM. I THINK THE NAME IS VERY INTERESTING AS I CAN IMAGINE AN INDIAN IN THERE SOMEWHERE!! I KNOW THAT THE UNDERHILL ELLIS DAVIS LINE THAT I AM A DIRECT DESCENDANT IS AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND THE INDIAN. I AM BEGINNING TO THINK IT MUST BE THROUGH HIS WIFE, MATILDA RILEY FROM SC AS THE SCOT IRISH WERE KNOWN TRADERS TO THE INDIANS. THANKS, BARBARA

Underhill Ellis DAVIS


I am related to the Underhill/Adah Davis family that lived in Wilkinson Co., GA. Their son Underhill Ellis Davis married Matilda Riley on 3/25/1828. I am lookinf for anyone researching this family and has the history of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church where they worshipped. This site has given me my gggreatgrandmother's death date. Is the church still there and the cemetery? Would love to know! This is a great site and I will be checking back to see what you've added. Thanks, Barbara Davis Franklin angelswings@lowcountry.com

Seeking information on Uriah AMASON, named as a resident of Washington Co. GA at the time of his marriage to Elizabeth RACHEL(S) in 1807. The marriage was recorded in Hancock Co. GA. Uriah died in 1848 in Montgomery Co. AL and his estate records name these children:Jesse, Washington, Mathew, Elisha, Rufus and Nancy or Mary PORTER. Mathew AMASON was born about 1814 in GA. Elisha AMASON was born about 1820 in AL. Uriah AMASON'S parents may have been Uriah AMASON who died about 1826 in Montgomery Co. AL and wife, Bethany. I am looking for any confirming documentation of the relationships of these families and I will share what I have. This surname is frequently spelled in different ways including:AMASON, AMERSON, AMISON, AMESON, AMOSON, AMOSSON, etc. The AMASON/AMERSON's of Washington Co. GA are related to Underhill DAVIS, and wife, ADA AMASON, of Wilkinson Co. GA and may also have ties to RACHEL(S)/ROCHELLE and to the Samuel HOLLYMAN/HOLLIMAN families who resided in Wilkinson Co. GA.

I would like to trade info or is all that you have located on the Culpepper web site? If you want anything on the Davis family from Tallapoosa Co (Underhill, Matilda Davis, etc.) I will be happy to share. Thanks, Barbara

Message: I am searching for information on my great grandfather, James Willis Foshee, b.June 6, 1869/1870 d. June 10, 1952 in Kildare, Cass Co. TX. He may have been the grandson of Noah E. Foshee and Frances Anne Davis. There is a James W. listed as a grandson in the 1880 Coosa Co.AL census with Underhill Davis, Matilda, Noah Foshee and Frances. It says James W. was age 11, grandson born in AL. Some of my family says he was raised by grandparents, so this seems like a good lead. I have no idea what James Willis' parents names were. If anyone has any info. I would dearly appreciate it, as I have been working on this brick wall for a long time.
