Would like to know the name of my grandfather's father. He was married to Susan Jacqueline Swain.

Well, I think we can call ourselves "distant cousins" :)

I've been researching my family history for over a year now, and I have documented that Atwood Baily Davenport (b. Aug. 25, 1884) was married to Cora Beatrice Chesson (b. March 6, 1886). I have that Atwood's parents were Wilson Haywood Davenport (b.1858, d. 1935 and that he was married to Jacqueline Swain.

Would LOVE to share family histories with you! I've taken the Davenport line back to the 1600's....

Hi Mary,
I saw your message on Davenports. Does your line run into Davis Davenport, son of Fauntleroy Davenport and father of Martin Davenport? Would really like to hear from you on this. I descend through Martin's daughter Mary.

I haven't been able to prove that connection, YET - - have been trying and am pretty sure that with most of them coming from NC there HAS to be a connection there somewhere. I'll let you know if I ever hit it! Thanks for the add'l information!

I am searching the Davenport line. I have Davis David Davenport born 1666- D-24 may 1732 in King William Va. I have his father as Faunt Leroy Davenport born 1630 and died 1650. I know it has been a few years that you sent in your message to ancestry about this line but by chance do you have any other names of children, birthdates,marriages or a list of their family group sheets. I would love to see if we are related to you. mary e-mail hope to hear from you soon.

Mary - For more information on Davis Davenport, do a search on "Pamunkey Davenport". It is a very popular southern Davenport line and there has been much research on it. What are your sources that Fauntleroy was the father of Davis? I'm not sure there is any evidence that he was a real person. And it is unlikely Davis had a middle name in that era. Bill Davenport.

Bill: I appreciate your getting back to me so quickly.I will check out Pamunkey Davenport and if I still have questions, I'll get right back to you. I got the fauntleroy Davemport from a thread but I haven't completely checked it out for auth. for my line. what line do you belong to. I have been searching for Stephen Davenport who was "reported" to have gone with the wagontrain that ended up as the Donner party that got caught in the high sierria pass. He was supposed to have been a driver for one of the wagons. He would have to have been born in the timeframe of 1800 t0 1926 to be old enough to do this. they were in the Salt Lake Valley 1846. A year before the mormons got there. We lost track of him abd are wondering if this could be our Stephen. mary lynn
