I'm looking for any information on a Frederick Davis listed in the 1783 Census as living in Greensville County, Virginia.

He was born in Wales around 1730 and immigrated to Virginia around 1750 with brothers Ephraim (Enoch?), William, and possibly a Jonathan. According to family stories they settled in Albemarle County, Virginia. It's possible they had to relocate to Greensville County during the Revolutionary War then went back to Albemarle County.

Frederick's brother Ephraim (Enoch?, my 5th great grandfather, was killed at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in North Carolina in 1781. Ephraim's 3 children William, James and Francis then went to live with Frederick.

Other than stories we have no information about Frederick or William.
