I have a John D Davis(1823-1884) who married Ruhama Glasgo as a distant relative. They were the parents of Mary Ann Melinda Davis Phillips.
Melinda married Joseph John Phillips. They were my grand mothers parents.They are buried in the Old Pomona Cemetery in Greensboro.
John D Davis was the son of Close Davis and Anna Adams. Close was the son of Dafren davis and Isabel Scott.
Is this the same line of Davis' that you descent from.
