Re: Frank Davis NY>MINN>CA>NY
I'm searching for a Calvin Davis, born 1784, Wilbraham, MA to Kitteridge Davis, mostly likely born in Hebron CT or Mansfield Ct in 1760.
Calvin most likely married a woman with surname Phelps, and together they had a son Wellington Davis.I believe they lived for some years in Marion, Wayne Co, NY.
Calvin's younger brother, Jehiel Davis, was my gg grandfather.He also lived in NY for 30 years, then moved his family to Troy, Oakland, MI in about 1830.
Other brothers were Luther Davis, who spent most of his life in Northampton, MA, and Solomon Davis, about whom I've learned very little.
I believe that Calvin's son, Wellington, also named one of his sons Wellington.
So - perhaps this connects with your Davis family?
