About Nathaniel Ambrose? Davis

“N.J. Floyd notes that ‘. . .A dozen miles distant (from William Floyd’s cabin) was the commodious Bungalow of Nathaniel Davis, a Welshman by descent, and one of the very early settlers in that region. He had made quite a large fortune by trading with the Catawba and other Indians, and by locating choice river-bottom lands from the present site of Lynchburg up to the Balcony Falls. Mr. Davis had among other children a beautiful daughter Abadiah, whom the young man (Floyd) fell in love with and won for his bride.’ (Note that this child is the grandchild of Nathaniel, not his daughter).” (Stevens, Marshall, Mitchell, Washington and other Families, Pat M. Stevens IV, RootsWeb World Connect Project database)
