1 female 45 or over in or bef. 1765 = Jemima (b. 1778)

This is an older couple than our subjects, with the last of their children coming of age.

4.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1820 (Broderbund CD-314):  there was no census in Missouri Territory.  There were 30 James DAVISes in Kentucky, including a James E. DAVIS in Fayette County, but with a name this common, you really have to know where someone is before you can point to a census record and say it is a particular James DAVIS.

5.  1830 Census Index and Digital Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #7 of 8; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):  there are 14 James DAVISes in Missouri, including two in Montogomery County, but this one is clearly out subject.
