Rev. Robert DAVENPORT (d 1848 - Alexandria, Rapides, LA)married Mary Frances ROPER (b 8 Mar 1818 - Richmond, VA; d 18 Jul 1896 - Baltimore, MD) on 8 Sep 1835 at Second Baptist Church, Richmond, VA. Mary Frances ROPER, was the daughter of Rev. David Roper (b 27 Sep 1792 - Charles City County, VA; d 28 Feb 1827 - Richmond, VA), a founder of Second Baptist Church, and Mary Frances MILLER (b ca 1800; d 6 Sep 1844- Richmond, VA), his wife.

It is my understanding that Robert DAVENPORT had attended Virginia Baptist Seminary (now University of Richmond).

Rev. Robert and Mary Frances Roper DAVENPORT were subsequently Baptist missionaries in Siam (now Thailand), arriving in Bangkok on 21 Feb 1836. Rev. DAVENPORT imported the first printing machine into Bangkok, where he translated and printed the Bible, while his wife taught the antive girls in school.

The DAVENPORTs returned to the United States in 1845, settling in Alexandria, Louisiana, where Robert DAVENPORT died three years later at the age of 39.

Mary Frances Roper "Fanny" DAVENPORT subsequently relocated first to Charlottesville, VA, and later to Baltimore, Maryland. She remarried a Col. FEUDGE.

Rev. Robert and Mary Frances Roper DAVENPORT supposedly had at least two SONS. I believe that one of these was later a physician in Baltimore.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THE IDENTITY OF REV. ROBERT DAVENPORT'S PARENTS, HIS EXACT DATE OF BIRTH, HIS DATE OF DEATH OR THE NAMES OF HIS TWO SONS?

I can furnish much information as to SOURCES for the above information, as well as Mary Frances Roper's lineage.
