Issac DAVIS, Sr.
Sarah CLARK
NOTICE:  Two males surnamed DAVIS, one descended from our subject's son, Isaac Jr., and the other from our subject's son, Benjamin, have been Y-DNA tested at FamilyTreeDNA.  They are a high level match with each other proving they have a near common ancestor, which strongly supports the accuracy of their paper genealogy.  The two of them are, in turn, matching a male DAVIS who is a patrilineal line descendant of Joseph DAVIS, son of James DAVIS & Hannah RAMSEY, supporting the longly asserted claim that Isaac is a son James & Hannah and, thus, brother to Joseph.  The circumstantial evidence supporting the connection is now supported by strong genetic evidence.  For a discussion of their testing, please see this page.
Husband:  Isaac DAVIS, Sr.
Birth:  1765-68, VA
Death:  1834, Boone Co., MO
Office:  1804, Justice of the Peace, Christian Co., KY
Y-DNA Haplogroup:  R-1b1b-2a1b = R-P312
Father:  James DAVIS
Mother:  Hannah RAMSEY
Marriage said to be:  1786, Sullivan Co., NC [now TN]
Last Residence:  two miles East of Hallsville, Boone Co., MO
Wife:  Sarah "Sally" CLARK
Birth:  1768, Tryon Co., NC [now Cherokee Co., SC]
Death:  1835, Boone Co., MO
Father:  Henry CLARK, Sr.
Mother:  Sarah "Sally" JONES

In the 1880 census, Isaac's daughter, Sarah Jones (DAVIS) DARBY, gives both her parents' birthplaces as VA.  She is probably correct about her father, but her mother was almost certainly born in SC.

Children:
Said to have had sons John and James, whose birthdates are unknown.

  1.  (Son A) DAVIS, b. 1784-90
  2.  (Son B) DAVIS, b. 1784-90
  3.  Henry Clark DAVIS, b. 1790/1 or 7 Feb 1792
  4.  Isaac DAVIS, Jr., b. 1794-1800, Pendleton Co., SC 
  5.  (Son C) DAVIS, b. 1794-1800
  6.  (Son D) DAVIS, b. 1794-1800
  7.  Delilah DAVIS, b. 1794-1800, KY 
  8.  Benjamin DAVIS, b. 2 Feb 1800, Christian Co., KY
  9.  Joseph DAVIS, b. ca. 1804
10.  (Son E) DAVIS, b. 1800-1810 might he be this John DAVIS?, b. 1804/5, KY
11.  (Son F) DAVIS, b. 1800-1810
12.  Sarah Jones DAVIS, b. 18 Jul 1812, Fairview, Christian/Todd Co., KY

It's difficult to reconcile Henry's birth date and place.  In the 1850 Census, Henry is age 59, b. NC (I don't know the source of the 7 Feb 1792 birthdate, presumably his tombstone).  Henry's father was in the 1790 Census of Pendleton Co., SC, so is Henry's birthdate wrong or is the birthplace wrong or is the census wrong?  One of them has to be.

*The town of Fairview straddles the Christian/Todd county line.  The town is officially (administratively) in Christian County, but these DAVISes lived on the Todd County side of the line, in the watershed of the West Fork of the Red River.  [I'm not convinced we know that Sarah was born in Fairview.  That location may have been added to reinforce the family tradition as yet unproven that we are related to Jefferson DAVIS, President of the Confederate States of America, who was born in Fairview in 1807/8.]

ANNOUNCEMENT:  There is a mailing list for researchers of the genealogy and family history of Thomas THOMPSON and kin, including his sister, Rachel THOMPSON and her husband, William T. WYATT, and the ancestors of Thomas's wife, Delilah DAVIS.  Please join and share in the research.  To subscribe, visit this web page and follow the instructions.

Sources:

1.  Family Group Sheet compiled by Georgie Tolleson and Betty Ann (Matthiesen) Cogliati.

2.  Marriage Record:  Isaac and Sarah are said to have married ca. 1786 in Sullivan Co., which is consistent with the location of Sarah's parents at the time.  Unfortunately, the Sullivan County Court House burned during the Civil War, and all marriage records were lost.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1790 (Broderbund CD-311):
1790 DAVIS, Isaac SC Pendleton Dist. p. 83 02-02-01-00-00
These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
2 free white males 16 and over in or before 1774 = Isaac Sr.
= ?
2 free white males 15 and under 1774-1790 = Son A
= Son B
1 free white females all ages in or before 1790 = Sarah (b. 1768)
Isaac and Sarah are too young to have a son 16+ by 1790.  Still, I don't doubt this is the correct Isaac given his neighbors (see 1790 Pendleton Co. Census Table). 

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312):  the 1800 KY census was lost, so tax lists are substituted on the CD.

Are these additional persons children of Isaac and Sarah?  Boarders?  Could the additional female be a wife of one of the sons, and the additional children be theirs?  Isaac is there in Christian Co. with his father-in-law, Henry CLARK, Sr., his brothers-in-law, Henry CLARK, Jr., Isaac CLARK, and Francis WHITESIDE, plus several other kin.

*The county was divided into just two districts:  from 1804 to 1806, into North and South Districts; beginning in 1807, into East and West Districts.  The change tells us that Isaac was in the southeast quadrant of early Christian County, which later became the southwest quadrant of Todd Co., when it was formed in 1820.  This location is confirmed by the location of the West Fork of the Red River in today's southwestern Todd Co.
The Spring Creek land belongs to the next person on the list, not Isaac.
