Ancestry.com has a index of a will for William Davis of Prince William Co, VA for 1798 but it is only an index and has no details. I did get a copy of the will dated 1798 which introduced a new puzzle to solve. The William Davis in that will did not match the ancestors named below. Mr. Patrick of Maryland had researched a William Davis from Prince William County Virginia that did have a grandson named Jesse Davis that was a Captain in the Virginia Continental Line and had moved to Nelson County Kentucky after the war. This William Davis had died in 1755 according to the research Mr. Patrick had done. Mr. Leroy Lewis had sent me a copy of that research along with a copy of the 1798 will of William Davis from Prince William County Virginia and Charles County Maryland. The William Davis who died in 1755 had a son named Isaac and a grandson named Jesse Davis who served in the Revolution and migrated to Nelson Co, KY. Our original goal was to find out who James B Davis dad and grandfather were.
