I am a descendant of Hezekiah Davidson (born circa-1720s; died about 1793 in Cumberland Co., VA) and Tabitha Childers.Tabitha Childers was a daughter of Abraham Childers and Elizabeth Cannon, and Tabitha was a granddaughter of William Cannon and Elizabeth Woodson.Based onyour post, does this presumably make me eligible to become a member of the Jamestown Society (or whatever it is called)?While I have been actively involved with genealogy for several years now, I have never been all that interested in joining most "societies" for which I am eligible (my Davidson ancestors were in Rev. War, the War of 1812 and the War Between the States), but it might be "kind of neat" to try to join the referenced one.Comments?
Note: I have a female cousin who is also a descendant of my gggg-grandfather Philemon Davidson (who fought at Valley Forge during the Rev. War).With some research help from me, my cousin was accepted into the DAR a year or two ago.
By the way, I see where some have suggested that the Cannon and Kennon families that were in early eastern Virginia MIGHT be "one and the same."Do you know the status of any/all Y chromosome testing that would prove or refute that possible "connection?"Thanks!
