Looking for any information at all on the following 2 Davis families that are living next door to each other in the 1850 Knox County, Tennessee Census:

Dwelling 1790
Jonathan L. Davis 39 b NC
Elizabeth 37 b NC
Harrison 9 b TN
Elza C. 7 b TN
Lindsay 6 b TN
Sarah 4 b TN
George J. 2 b TN

Dwelling 1791
Joshua Davis ?? b NC
Sarah 34 b NC
Martha J. 14 b NC
David W. 12 b TN
Willie 10 b TN
John 8 b TN
George 5 b TN
Samuel 1 b TN

The Joshua Davis Family also appears in the 1860 Dekalb County, Tennessee Census with children George & Samuel. Sarah is not listed & presumed to have died between the 1850 Knox Co TN Census & the 1860 Dekalb Census.

Joshua Davis is my GGG Grandfather, & David W. Davis my GG Grandfather.
I have no idea who Joshua's, nor Jonathan's father or mother is. I tend to think that they are related since they appear as living next door to each other in the above Census. Any information on either, or their children would be greatly, greatly appreciated!!!

I have also learned the following about the Jonathan L. Davis Family listed above under Dwelling 1790:
Jonathan L. Davis b 11 Mar 1811 NC, died 4 Oct 1896. Buried in Harlans Crossroads Cemetery, Monroe County KY.
Elizabeth (Adams) Davis b 25 Nov 1813 NC, died 28 Apr 1869. Buried in Harlans Crossroads Cemetery, Monroe Co, KY.
Harrison Davis b 15 Jun 1840 TN, died 13 Apr 1912. Buried Harlans Crossroads Cemetery, Monroe County, KY. Married Sarah T. Moore 23 Mar 1865 in Monroe Co, KY. They had children: John Caswell, Mary "Ellen", Harrison Rice, Lawrence "Benton", Florence Estella, Pearl Effie, Willard Greenup.
Eliza C. Davis b 28 Sep 1842 TN.
Lindsay Davis b 13 Jul 1844 TN, died 13 Apr 1925 in Monroe Co, KY. Buried Crossroads Cemetery, Monroe Co, KY. Married Susan A. Weaver 6 Jun 1863 in Monroe Co, KY. They had children: Harrison L., Elizabeth J., Mary E., George "Samuel" Green, Margarette Ellen, Sally L., Rebecca.
Sarah Davis b 5 Sep 1846 TN.
George J. Davis b abt 1850 TN.
Margaret E. Davis b abt 1853 TN.

Concerning the Joshua Davis Household, Dwelling 1791 above:
Martha J. Davis b 1836 in NC.
David Wesley Davis b 22 Mar 1838 in Burke County, North Carolina. Died 31 Jul 1912 in Warren Co, KY. Buried in Fairview Cemetery, Bowling Green, Warren Co KY. He married Mary "Polly" Pitts on 4 Aug 1856 in Knox Co, KY. They had the following children: Chapman White, Sarah Catherine, Alice Elizabeth, James Washington, John David & William Florida.
William Davis b 1840 TN
John b 1842 TN
George Washington b 1844 TN

If anyone at all can supply me with any information at all on the above mentioned Ancestors of mine, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
John Davis
