trying to find parents

Mary Ann Davis, Edgefield South Carolina (View posts)
Posted: 946849612000
I am looking for any information on her parents
and family. We believe that she was born in
Edgefield, South Carolina she was married to
John Bridwell who was born in 1770 in Richmond
Virginia. She died in 1861, and he died in
1869. We have a history that indicates that
Jefferson Davis President of the Confederacy
may be a cousin. Any information would be
appreciated. Thank you, Steven Nilsson

I believe we would be distantly related as John Bridwell and Mary Davis are my great, great, great grandparents. I have more info on Mary Davis from Edgefield Co. S.C. in my records. I will check it out.

Don't have much on Mary Ann Davis wife of John Bridwell(my GGG grandparents). John was born in Fauquier Co. VA. in 1779 and died in Richmond Co. Ga.(probably Augusta) in 1869. Mary Ann Davis was probably born in South Carolina and was John Bridwell's 2nd wife. They were married in 1822 and she bore him 14 children. John Bridwell had 9 children from a previous wife, Rachel Cox. Something strange happened at the time he met Mary Ann as Rachel gave birth to his last child just 3 months before Mary Ann gave birth to his first child! I have nothing else on Mary Ann. You said she died in you know where she is buried? Call me @ 661-326-1011 or e-mail @

John Bridwell's father was Jacob Bridwell (1748-1841)b 1748 in Fauquir Co, VA d 02/11/1841 in Greenville, SC

Jacob's father was William Bridwell (1705-1841),b abt 1705 in VA, d 02/11/1841 in Taylors, Greenville, SC. (I don't know why they have the same d date and place) I don't have info that goes further back. If you want the info for all the children and wives I can provide that off line.
