Phebe LAWRENCE
Please Note:  I'm seeking a male DAVIS who descends from our subject on a patrilineal line for Y-DNA testing.  We have one such male already tested (#110564), but we need another.  I will pay for the testing.  Please contact me if you are such an individual or if you know of one.

It's said Phebe's tombstone reads, "Phoebe, dau of Col Elisha Lawrence," but where is this tombstone?!
Many secondary sources allege these are Phebe's parents:
Father notAmos LAWRENCE
Mother notPhebe BABCOCK
but the evidence not only doesn't support the connection, it argues strongly against it.

David DAVIS, b. 1821/2

WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com):  one file here shows Phebe the daughter of Elisha & Elizabeth (DRAKE) LAWRENCE, and I think they may be correct.
