DAVIS-REESE-KELLY-GILL Families of Baltimore, Maryland

Updated June 5, 2003

About Our Family Research


This page is dedicated to sharing information on the following families who lived in Baltimore in the 1800s, and to locating living descendants for the purpose of furthering the family history:

David W. Davis, born Wales
Thomas D. Davis, born Wales, married Margaret Reese, born Wales
Thomas D. Davis later married Catherine Rourke Jenkins, of PA, widow of Hugh Jenkins
George W. Gill, born MD, married Mariah Ann Smith, born MD
Elizabeth Gill, born Baltimore, married John Kelly, born MD
Maria A. Kelly married John L. Davis, both born Baltimore

Related surnames include:
Charles
Bryan
Crone
Benhoff
Nicholson
Crockett
Koester
Wilbourne
Stumpf
Smith
West
Pritchard
Wells
Fehsenfeld
Bachmann
Etc.

We have found some of our ancestors buried in these cemeteries in Baltimore:

Mt. Carmel
Oaklawn
Holy Cross (moved to Woodlawn)
Baltimore Cemetery
Loudon Park
Druid Ridge

Our immigrant Davis and Reese families were engaged in the earliest coppersmelting work in Baltimore, around 1849. The families first lived in the Locust Point and Canton areas, where some remained until their deaths. Others moved to Orangeville, parts of New Jersey, Connecticut, Montana, New York, etc.

Our immediate goal is to untangle all the familial relationship problems caused by so many people with the same given name. We would like to prove that Thomas D. Davis was the son of David W. Davis. We want to place all the Kellys who are resting in the family plot at Baltimore Cemetery in the correct spot of the family tree.
