BORDERS, DAVIS, HENSLEY, STEPHENSON posted by Dorsey Jude, Jr.  on Wednesday, February 11, 1998

I am investigating a connection between Kentucky and Maryland for my DAVIS ancestors.  The 1850 census records for both Lawrence & Johnson counties in KY identified certain individuals with the DAVIS surname who were born in Maryland.  Specifically, the 1850 Lawrence county census identified William DAVIS born 1770 in MD with wife Nancy (maiden name unknown) born 1797 in VA. In close proximity to William, the census  identified Samuel DAVIS born 1784 in MD with wife Lucretia (surname possibly STEPHENSON?) born 1794 in VA.  The census also shows Samuel’s nearest neighbor was Henry DAVIS born 1786 in VA with wife Rachel (maiden name unknown) born 1789 in SC.  In neighboring Johnson county, the 1850 census identified Joseph DAVIS born 1776 in MD with wife Elizabeth (BORDERS) born 1800 in VA.  I believe William, Samuel, Henry & Joseph were brothers.  William may have been married several times.  His last marriage was to Sarah HENSLEY.  The marriage record in Lawrence county shows William was age 90 and Sarah was age 66 when they married on March 6, 1860. William is later identified with his wife Sarah on the 1860 Johnson County census.   I believe another wife may have been named Mary (maiden name unknown).   I also found in the vital statistics of Lawrence county a death record showing Samuel DAVIS died on July 11, 1857 at age 72.  His parents were listed as William & Mary DAVIS.  If William, Henry & Joseph were Samuel’s brothers, then William & Mary DAVIS may have also been the parents of William, Henry & Joseph as well.  If you or anyone have any connections to this family and can offer any information or suggestions whatsoever, it would be extremely appreciated. Thank you.
