http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rkross/old-settlers.html -------------------- Tamar Barker (Davis) parents are Charles Davis 1771-1850 (the brother of Joseph Davis) and Hannah Piggott 1774-1812. Tamar's daughter (Dinah Barker 1819-1854) married her second cousin (John Davis 1812-1874). *SEE NOTE BELOW

All states in America permit you to marry a second cousin. It is illegal in 31 states to marry your first cousin, and legal in 19 states as well as the District of Columbia. There has been no proven genetic issues with marrying a second cousin (as of 2011, although 3 of the Davis' children didn't make it past the age of 2). Offspring produced by first cousins often have some minor complications.

NOTE: Connecting Tamar to her parents in the tree creates duplicate people because the complexity of the tree makes it difficult to display otherwise. Either way, connecting Tamar to her parents makes the tree difficult to read. -------------------- Ben M.
