Some Davis researchers, with no documentation that I've seen, have them going to what is now Franklin Co., PA, and being parents of some of the many Welsh Run and/or Warren Township (Little Cove) Davises. That was extreme frontier at that time.
SOURCE:ARTICLE RECEIVED FROM GLENN FERREE FEB 8, 2001- APPEARS TO BE WRITTEN BY A MEMBER OF THE SHEESLEY FAMILY.
"Jane, the youngest daughter, married a Scitch-Irish emigrant by the name of Davis and some of their descendants had that roving and adventurous trait of the Scotch-Irish and emigrated westward, some settling about Fort Duquesne or Pittsburg at the close of the Indian Wars in 1763 and other going farther west to Kentucky.From the Pittsburg family was born a Major Davis who fought with Gen. Jackson in the War of 1812 and whose son, Dr. A. J. Davis, was named by Andrew Jackson himself when traveling through that part of the country."
COMMENT:Although this compiler has not found any children for this couple yet, the above excerpt indicates that maybe someday they might be found to have existed.MIKE SMOKE
FROM HUGH McHARRY:
The Ferree family histories indicate that there were no known offspring from this couple. but: The book ""Paradise, Our Heritage, Our Home" by Robert C. Denlinger says that because Richard and Jane (Ferree) Davis were "moving on" they sold Jane's portion of the land in Paradise to her brother John. In Philip Ferree's will dated 1753. He leaves his portion of his sister Jane's land to his children.
