DAVIS -
I am the Grandson of Squire Richard DAVIS who moved from Roanoke to Franklin County, Gladehill, Rt. 2 Box 304 (currently) in the early 50's. I believe he passed away in 1971 or 72 and is buried in the family cemetery on the site. His Father built the house and also lived there, but I'm not sure of his name. I have lots of DAVIS relatives in the Gladehill community and need any information or possible other sources you may have on the ancestors of S.R. DAVIS. I have been concentrating on the Cunningham Surname up til now and I am just beginning my DAVIS research. Appreciate any advise, direction or info you may have.
