Dolor Davis A Sketch of his Life With A Record of his Earlier Descendants by Horace Davis printed in 1881 page 40 the paragraph is a direct quote it states: " Samuel Davis, son of Dolor and Margery, birth unknown; married at Lynn, January 11, 1665 or 66, Mary Meddowes. She died at Concord, October 3, 1710. Samuel married second wife October 18, 1711, Ruth Taylor. Ruth died August 6, 1720. Samuel was a freeman March 21, 1689 or 90. He settled in that part of Concord which afterward became Bedford, and his homestead is owned by his descendants to-day. He is my lineal ancestor , (Mine too) and I visited his farm on the back road ( now this description is back in 1881 or so) from Concord to Bedford, about three miles from Concord, on the edge of the river meadow. A well is there which Samuel is said to have dug. Mr. Benjamin J. Davis, the owner of the property, kindly loaned me some ancient deeds, dating from 1694 to1712, and containing signatures of Samuel Davis and some of his family. From these I learned that he was still living March 15, 1714, and had already settled upon his sons most of his land during his own lifetime. Samuel's name sometimes appears on the Concord records, but he took little part in public affairs. In his deeds he styles himself husbandman and yeoman. The date of his death and place of burial are unknown."
