Shirley, I am at the same brick wall. Thomas C. Davenport is my GG Grandfather. My family has always said that they are related to Colonel George Davenport even though the only evidence is in letters from my grandmother's sister Lucille Davenport. Very frustrating. This is the first theory that I have heard of him being an born of an indian maiden. Could happen I guess considering his history of children out of wedlock and his history of relations with the indians. We may never know. Mark
