Thank you so much for the information.I am descended from Benjamin Davis and Mary Ann Byler (niece of Capt. John).It is very curious that Benjamin Davis' date of death is the same as Capt. John's.I contacted Rober Byler (who is probably the source of this information), but he didn't have readily available the source of his information.Since Benjamin was only 29 or 30 years old, I assume he died either in an accident, or of some contagious disease.
Thank you again for sharing your information. Margaret
