Re: Lydia wife of James Davis- Greene Co, MS- was NOT a Daughdrill
After much work and collaboration with Daughdrill researchers & desc of James & Lydia Davis- the conclusion that became obvious was Lydia was NOT one the Daughdrills that came from SC into Greene Co, MS.Their migrations are completely separate- we cannot put them in the same place until they get to Greene Co, MS.Lydia cannot be the unnamed Daughdrill dau on the 1810 passports because she was still in Kershaw Co, SC with husband James Davis & would be his wife on his GA passport in 1812.The James Davis who married Elizabeth Daughdrill is a completely separate Davis family that cannot be connected in anyway to mine in Greene Co, MS- even when they were in SC.Desc of James Davis who married Elizabeth Daughdrill need to see if a Davis male can be found to do DNA testing from familytreedna.com.I've tested Davises of Wayne & Greene & Clarke Co, MS & neighboring Choctaw Co, AL for DNA- none of them are kin!!
James & Lydia Davis had a granddaughter whose full name was Lydia Jones Davis- many take this as a clue that Lydia was possibly a Jones.Next door neighbors to our Davises in Kershaw Co, SC were JONES!Some Jones families in Kershaw did use the name Lydia- but no proof has been found that she was one too.
