I am trying to locate any information concerning my gggrandfather. He came her from Wales about 1820 and settled in Virginia. His name was Clyde Marion Davis. He married Martha Taylor and he died in Harpers Ferry, W.Va in a flood on a ferry he operated. Could you possibly know anything about him. Any help will be appreciated.
