Does anyone have any information on Reese or Reece Davis, b 6 Feb 1790 Surry Co, NC d 18 Feb 1854 Jefferson Co, IL ? Reese appears in the 1850 Jefferson Co, IL census as age 60 and born in NC but I have never been able to find anyone researching him in Surry Co, NC. Most of his children were all born in Surry Co, NC. He may have married more than once. I've been told his first wife was Patsey Childers (maiden name Harris). She was previously married to Hastin Martin Childress/Childers and may have been divorced from Reese and married James Graves. Reese shows up in IL census with a wife named Martha and she is 40 years old and he is 60 years old. The gap in her and the children's ages leaves me to believe she is a second wife to Reese.

Childers, Patsey married Davis, Reece on 18 Aug 1823 in Surry County, North Carolina
