DAVIS posted by Rick Fogle on Thursday, June 10, 1999

Am researching a Benjamin DAVIS, born Sept. 20, 1832 in Belmont County. In looking for Davis's in the 1830 and 1840 census (thanks for having them available) I find the following townships are no longer on the map available on your site: 1830 - Morristown, Barnesville, St. Clairsville, Burlington; 1840 - Bel AIr Village, West Wheeling, Martinsville, Burlington. Are these villages/towns or townships that have been absorbed by others? I am helping my mother-in-law find about her grandfather. Is there someone there who has hard copies of the 1840 census if I request some lookups? Davis is a too common surname and Benjamin seems to be all too popular as well. Thanks for any help you can give. Rick Fogle
