Surnames: Davenport, Chapman, Reburn, Hopkins
I descend thru James Reburn Davenport, brother to James Alexander Davenport. I am currently looking for a copy of a book by Henry Davenport Jr. (a descendant in Stephen's line, Adrian's brother) which shows the children of Alexander C Davenport and Eleanor Hopkins. It also shows Alexander as son of Adrian Davenport 1758/9 and Nutty Chapman. This was written or published in the 1950's I believe. Someone from James Alexander's line joined the DAR with info from this book in 2011. I am currently trying also to use this info to show the DAR that the two James's were brothers. I am already a DAR member, but want Adrian Davenport as one of my Patrons, thru his son James Reburn Davenport. My grandmother was Mary Agnes Davenport Bitter of Union Co., KY. This line was what got me into genealogy. Sincerely Sharon Miller Sheridan
