Elisha Davis (b. 1803 NC), and descendants; Davis-Bozeman connection

Surnames: Davis, Hurst, Bozeman, Swearingen, Stewart, Mayo
I am a ggg granddaughter of Rev. Elisha Davis, b. 1803 NC, d. 1880 in Webster Co. GA, buried at Davis-Wiggins Cemetery, in Webster Co. GA. I descend from Elisha and his first wife Sarah.

Elisha appears to have had 14 children; 5 by his first wife Sarah, and 9 more by his second wife Lutitia McLeod (who is buried at Davis-Wiggins Cemetery with him). He had no children by his third and final wife, Rebecca Brindley, who he married shortly before he died in his 70's. Elisha consistently stated he was born in NC, and that his father was born in NC, while his mother was born in GA.

I have some information on only 4 of Elisha's children:
John B. (my gg grandfather)
William E.
Louisa D.
Queen Victoria

If anyone has information to share about Elisha's other children, it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if anyone has any clues or leads as to Elisha's parentage and/or place of birth in NC, it would also be very much appreciated.

As John B. married Abi J. Bozeman (second wife; these two are my gg grandparents), I have a fair amount of information on the Bozeman line - Abi's parents were Luke Bozeman and Julia Hill. However, I have information on only 2 of John B. Davis' 11 children, both of whom are by wife Abi J. Bozeman: Ada Ann and Lutitia T. (Tessie). I'm hoping someone may have further information regarding John's offspring by his wives Mary (possibly Richardson) and Abi J. Bozeman.

I am happy to share anything I have with other descendants.
