Do you know this Davis family and their origins?

Looking for the ancestors or descendants of William Davis brn ard 1825 MO and mrd to Lucinda - her maiden name unknown, my Gr Gr Gr Grandparents; see census notes below. The family is not found after 1870 in the census records? The best clue and only link I have is found in the 1850 & 1860 census records for Mountain Twp, Washington Co AR.

Children of William and Lucinda Davis; Martha Ann and William Thomas Davis are found in the 1880 Brown Co TX Census records. William Thomas would be my Gr Gr Grandfather who mrd Laura Caldora "Callie" Chandler April 3 1880. Callie Chandler was brn Feb 1860 in Brown Co TX, d/o Welcome William Chandler and Sarah Brown.

Martha Ann Davis mrd George Washington Staley. Both Martha Ann (Davis) Staley and William Thomas Davis lived their lives in Brown Co Texas. The other known children; Samuel, Elizabeth, Siphrona and John are not found?

Any clue could help find the parents of this William Davis or the maiden name of Lucinda (Davis) and what happened to their other children!

Thank-you for your time!!
